New Nissan Micra 2017 now comes with new features
The Micra is undoubtedly an ageing product. It was originally introduced in 2010, making it a seven year old product in the Indian market. Though Nissan gave it a mid-cycle facelift in 2014, the Micra never really managed to make a mark in the market. Despite the fact that the diesel models were one of the most lively hatchbacks available in the price, customers weren’t attracted to the Micra, mainly due to Nissan’s relatively poor brand image and the car’s circular design theme.
Nissan has now tried to make the Micra’s package more feature laden with the introduction of automatic headlamps, automatic wipers, and new orange inserts inside the cabin. But can these new additions help Nissan to boost Micra sales in India?
