Nissan has updated the Micra with some new goodies, including an improved infotainment system, as well as more standard equipment.
Customers looking to buy a new Nissan Micra can now benefit from a new NissanConnect infotainment system that comes with real-time traffic info via TomTom navigation, free over-the-air updates for five years, plus Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The touchscreen display remains the same size as before, at 7 inches in diameter, but the head unit now comes with fewer hard keys and a new multi-touch capability. The home screen is now fully configurable, allowing users to set up their preferred shortcuts.
Nissan has also added a new display between the instrument cluster dials, as well as revised steering wheel buttons. The new instrument cluster display now shows additional information when receiving phone calls and text messages. Meanwhile, a voice control system is also a new addition to the Japanese supermini model.
Apart from the new tech features, Nissan has also updated the standard equipment levels of the Micra; rear power windows are now standard on N-Connecta and Tekna models, while the rear parking sensors have been redesigned in order to look more “integrated” into the rear bumper.
The new Nissan Micra is offered with three engine choices; an entry-level 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol with 70hp, a turbocharged 0.9-liter three-cylinder petrol with 88hp and a 1.5-liter diesel with 88hp.
