Micra's looks

Nissan has tried to make Micra as stylish a small hatchback as possible. Dashing headlamps and fog lamps placed next to the front grille, body coloured bumpers, body-coloured door mirrors, alloy wheels, silver finish door handles and tinted front headlamps covers, etc lend Micra great looks.

Micra's fuel efficiency

The petrol variants with a 1.2L, 1240cc petrol engine will provide a 13.5kmpl mileage in the city and 18.6kmpl mileage on highways. The other petrol variant would give a 12kmpl mileage in the city and 16.5kmpl mileage on highways.

While the 1.5L, 1461cc CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection) diesel engine variant will provide around 16.2kmpl mileage in city and 20.7kmpl mileage on highway.

Overall

Micra promises great fuel efficiency looks and power but maintenance might turn out to be an issue. In the next one year Nissan is planning to launch a number of cars in the Indian market and has lots of expectations riding on Micra especially.
