    New Micra 2017 without camouflage

    I visited my dealer today and he claims this will be the Micra 2017.

    I have my doubts... The rear door handle is different from the spy shots...

    I like it.

    I bet we won't be seeing the new model for a while after you get it.

    There will be 2 Micras in 2017, the new euro spec and the current K13.

    Aha. Classic Nissan tactic. Sell the cheaper old one alongside the new model for a couple of years.

    Or decades!

    Im a bit reluctant on the design. Im still seeing renault clio through this thing.

    But Metro is right- It isnt uncommon for nissan to have 2 lines going at the same time. Its like they push it to one market and if it takes, they bring it to the other market. Which is kinda smart if you think about it. If it flops, its not going to take much down with it.

    My thoughts:

    Considering how much money they spent to fit the plant in mexico to produce the micra, k13 micra production will continue in North america, japan and india (asian/middle east) and Austrailia [pretty sure they get micra's made in india tho]. These plants also produce similar vehicles from the same lines like the versa(tiida) and sentra, so it makes sense to me to have them do a good long run on a proven platform until they break even and start making great profit.

    But that being said- the sentra is due for its face lift in 2017 MY along with the versa.. So it would also make sense to redesign the micra as well for the north american market as it is produced alongside of the versa and sentra, that way they only have to retool the plant once.

    We will have to wait and see!

    How long did VW produce the "City" Golf along the newer one here in North America?

    Well that looks better then thought. Its not personally to my taste. I like the micra because its a little cute, with just a smidgen of aggressive styling.

    This is very strongly styled. It might not speak to everyone. But conversely, it might speak volumes to those that don't like the current micra's more conservative style.

    Are they going to stick with the 1.6, or are there going to be more interesting engine options?



    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.
