LONDON – June 26, 2013: Nissan has announced prices and specifications for the new Micra, ahead of its UK showroom debut in September.

The iconic Micra has formed the backbone of Nissan’s small car range for over 30 years, and in its latest incarnation offers more technology, equipment and value for money than ever before.

In addition to a bold new look front and rear, the new Micra also benefits from a complete interior makeover. A new centre console, upgraded materials, higher equipment levels and USB connectivity all feature as standard, while the new NissanConnect navigation and communication system, complete with state-of-the-art 5.8-inch touchscreen display, is also available for the first time on the Micra. Other clever technologies include a Parking Slot Measurement system and an i-Key feature that allows drivers to keep their keys in their pockets or bags when opening, closing and starting their Micra.

The launch range consists of three familiar trim grades and the option of two advanced engines: a 1.2-litre 80PS unit and a 1.2-litre Supercharged DIG-S powerplant with 98PS. A CVT transmission is available on both engines.

The new Micra range structure starts with the value-packed Visia model which is priced from £9,950 and features six airbags, Bluetooth phone integration, electric front windows, remote central locking and USB connectivity. Mid-spec Acenta models cost from £11,550 and add alloy wheels, leather steering wheel with audio controls, climate control and cruise control, while range-topping Tekna variants start at £12,950 and include NissanConnect navigation, Parking Slot Measurement, rear parking sensors and Intelligent Key with engine start button.

The new Micra is available to order now with first deliveries in September.
