Nissan Sway Makes Us Excited About The Micra For The First Time

Nissan’s Sway Concept points out at a radically redesigned Micra supermini, which may or may not change its name as well.

Taking a completely different design direction for the upcoming Micra is a great thing, as the current model is among the least desirable vehicles in Nissan’s lineup.

The Sway study gives an idea of what we should expect from the next-generation Micra, and I have to say it’s the first time I’m impatiently waiting for a Micra.

While the concept’s dimensions (4,010mm long, 1,780mm wide and 1,385mm tall with a 2,570mm wheelbase) are clearly those of a B-segment car, its design approach is inspired by Qashqai and Juke, two models that challenged the status quo in their market segments.

This means Nissan is trying to bring fresh ideas into the B-segment, which is always a good thing to do. Both the exterior and the interior, which is inspired by the IDx coupe study first revealed at the 2013 Tokyo motor show, look like they could transition smoothly to a production car.

We’ll see if that happens next year, when the next-generation Nissan Micra will have its debut.
