I think the first 2 years ( 2015-2016) will be the same.
2017 i think will be the first canadian facelift. But same engine.
Im basing this on the fact that I havent heard of a "new" engine being built.
Ecu tuning.. Maybe. Slight head work... Maybe. Total revamp?! Probably not.
Idx is likely the next new nissan. The pulsar will likely come to canada by 2017.
When the european tuned micra/sway concept becomes a production model it will likely have
a sportier look, suspension and tuning.. Probably the top of the line model though.
The 2017 model will have to be lighter, stronger and more fuel efficient. Which is why I think hybrid. But the micras whole concept is a barebones, inexpensive gas motor. Electric will just add weight and expensive parts.
Nissan needs their "loss leader"
So the only way that they can cheaply make the car "better" is with tuning and more "vvt" tweeking.
Kinda like what nissan did with the "NEO" edition engines.
Interior seems to be what they are concentrating on.
With the ads that Ive seen running i wouldnt be surprised if they add "luxury" features that youd
Find on cars with 4x the price. Like the camry commercial where the bosses daughter drives off in the employees car..
So stuff like push button start ( doesnt the euro models have this? ) and bluetooth.. Etc.
