    Does your Micra have a trim badge? (S, SV, SR?)

    I dropped by the local Nissan dealer this weekend. They have one 2017 Micra on the lot, and it appeared to be the SV trim (body-coloured door handles).

    But when I went around back to verify, there was NO trim badging on the car, just "MICRA"... and also the "Pure Drive" badge is absent.

    Maybe a case of Nissan saving a few more pennies per car, along with the removal of the standard equipment block heater?

    I double-checked some cars in the forum garage, and it looks like the SR & SV used to have trim badging... but the S never did. At least the SV badge might have disappeared in 2017.

    EG:

    ptbo micra's 2015 Nissan Micra SV "Ramona" ... with SV trim badge




    nebulatwonine's 2016 Nissan Micra SV "Nebula29" ... has SV badge ...



    Onyx's 2017 Nissan Micra SV "Micra(Onyx)" ... no badge!

    No! I just saw a Micra with an S on it today! I pay attention to other small cars and I was passed by a blue S with no rear spoiler on the 400.

    Seeing that shot of my car makes me want to wash it and take more long exposure winter night shots!

    (For the record, Ramona now has no trim badges)

    I noticed the same thing recently as well. My 2016 has the SV on the trunk, and my friend's 2017 SR has been mysteriously debadged from the factory. Or chalk it up the Micra gremlins who seem fond of stealing emblems and cabin air filters...

    I guess they determined it was worth saving the money. Not just the cost of the parts - but a worker has to align & actually stick them on the cars.

    My 2015 had the SV and two others that I quickly removed, I hate badges or any sticker.
