Micra replacement edges closer

2010-02-17 12:07
Nissan’s Micra replacement –  and incidentally also the firm’s new global compact car – will be shown at the upcoming Geneva show.

The first model developed on Nissan’s new V Platform, the focus for the new mini car has largely been to keep the weight down. This would then translate to better economy and lower emissions figures.

The car will feature an entirely new powertrain, including a new 1.2-litre, three cylinder engine mated to a new CVT. Bigger petrol engines and the existing 1.5-litre turbodiesel engine could also be carried over.

No images, apart from sketches first released a few months ago, have been released, but the car (whose name is still to be revealed) will be shown in the metal at Geneva Motor Show.

Sales kick off in Thailand in March, but more details are expected to emerge following the car’s March 2 unveiling.
