    This Curt harness for the Versa shows it as plug & play into the tail light socket, no cutting/splicing required:

    The correct part number is Curt #56185, probably for a '13 or earlier Versa.
    No cutting or splicing.

    I just purchased a new red 2015 Micra that was lost in invintory on a crazy deal.
    Just installed a SRG hitch with 2000 lb towing capacity.

    Is the 2000 lbs a joke? Can it really pull that? I have the 5 spd.

    The hitch I easily installed myself. As we speak I'm at a sterio place having the harness installed. It's universal.
    I came here as audio places regularly pull interior and hopefully not damage anything lol.

    Lost?? What the heck? Care to share details of your deal?

    The hitch may have a 2000 lb rating, but the car doesn't. That's the difference. The Micra has no official towing capacity from Nissan Canada. In fact they say "Do not tow a trailer with your vehicle" in the 2015 owner's manual.

    Owners here have towed very light trailers with them, though.

    In the UK, the older and lighter Micra with a smaller 1.2L engine, was rated for towing. Go figure.

    So they did an excellent job!

    My wiring kit was a universal from SRG so it took some time. My interior was removed and put back minty.

    The cable going under the car not through the trunk like some have where the trunk closes on the cables scratching the bumper.

    Under the bumper the cable was covered in that plastic protection and tied up all hidden until needed.

    80 cash I'm aiight with that ☺.

    My mistake - it doesn't appear to be an offician Nissan rating. It was just a page I saw that estimated towing capactiy using a formula based on vehicle curb weight & gross weight limit.
