We like the way Nissan is delivering nice-looking hatchbacks and sedans. One such a hatchback is the upcoming 2020 Nissan Micra, one of the traditional models with the affordable price. The upcoming Micra offers modern interior with the two-tone color scheme and plenty of new features. Under the hood, three engines are available and Micra offers numerous trim levels as well.
Moreover, a Micra Bose Personal Edition is in available too, a unique model loaded with premium features. The 2020 Nissan Micra is a similar model to the Ford Fiesta. Whatsoever, this model is available under many different names. Nissan March is the model for Asia and Latin America. The European version is famous under the name Renault Pulse, another Renault-Nissan alliance project. If you are looking for an affordable hatchback with modern appeal and solid performances, Micra may be the answer.
2020 Nissan Micra Improvements Are Visible
The all-new 2020 Nissan Micra will arrive with some significant upgrades. The exterior will visually be slightly different when compared to the current model. That means almost every part of the vehicle will get an upgrade. The front part comes with the larger V-motion grille. For an instance, the European Renault Pulse comes without the V-motion grille.
Back to the Micra, the grille is made of chrome and it provides a certain level of aggression. The headlights are brand-new and are wider than before. Generally, the headlights and the front end overall are looking very distinctive and attractive. The same piece of styling continues in the back with the new reverse lights and wider rear end. The side profile now comes with the side mirrors that are placed slightly below and the character lines are more visible.
2020 Nissan Micra Offers Very Modern Interior
As we are used to seeing, Nissan is once again delivering very modern interior design. Moreover, the comfort is at a high level for such an affordable hatchback. The base model comes with the black interior and the orange accents. The Japanese carmaker is also offering different two-tone schemes as well.
The dashboard is smaller and it offers rectangular HVAC vents. On the other hand, rounded vents are present as well and you can see beautiful chrome surroundings around them. The standard 7-inch display remains and it sits on the dash as before.
The infotainment system is up to date and it supports features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Optionally, you can opt for the Bose audio system with six speakers.
2020 Nissan Micra Engine Specs
Don’t expect high performances with the 2020 Nissan Micra. The hatchback is perfect for the drive in the city with its 0.9-liter gasoline engine. The three-cylinder unit is producing up to 90 horsepower. The 1.5-liter diesel is optional and it delivers around the same amount of horses as the base engine. On top of that, diesel drivetrain delivers over 60 mpg in the city, which is the astonishing result.
The latest rumors are saying the 1.0-liter gasoline engine could join the current lineup as well. However, until that happens, Micra’s top speed will remain at 100 mph and there won’t be any accelerations improvements at all. Generally, fuel economy is good and the ride quality is superb.
2020 Nissan Micra Price and Release Date
The all-new 2020 Nissan Micra will get a slight price increase over the current model. The price starts at $16,000. The range-topping Tekna models are priced at $23,000.
New Micra will hit the dealerships in the second half of 2019, while the European Renault Pulse variant will become available at the beginning of 2020.
