The hatchback segment is the highly competitive segment, which is also considered as the trickiest one in the Indian auto arena. This has remained an excellent playground for global players who have been constantly trying to offer hatchbacks that have a well maintained balance between fuel economy, power, safety and style.


The Micra tat has rolled out from a popular player, Nissan was initially launched during the year 2010 and has been considered as a super cute car that grabbed the attention of both men and women from various sectors. However, in this auto era where the rule of luxury, aggressiveness and speed has won over the lives of many car lovers, this hatchback that flaunts a cute look was not able to make a mark previously, when compared to the rigid personality of its counterparts. This has made the Japanese car manufacturer to offer a refreshing look to this model in order to offer a complete makeover for its personality and to cater to the needs of youngsters who are in need of a trendier vehicle. With its basic design being wiped off and a few new features added to it, will Nissan Micra be able to cope up among its rivals? The experts at Ecardlr decide to find it out!

Exterior Design

The facelift offered by the Japanese car maker looks like the car is injected with a fair dose of testosterone as the car looks macho and masculine, which is quite a change from its soft feminine look. The firm has made a cosmetic change by eliminating the rounded edges of Micra that cuts its cute and feminine look. The revised grille on the front it flaunts features a stylish honey comb design and holds its logo which is engulfed by a trough in V shape. The bumper also has a changed look and includes an air dam with a redesign and brand new fog lamps.


The refreshed look of the bumper needs a special mention and the cluster of tail lights with LEDs enhances the overall look of the car. The alloy wheels show off a revised design and it also has a fresh rear spoiler.


The Micra car flaunts a sporty look this time, thanks to the new boomerang shaped headlamps and LED stop lamps that has been designed to have a better functionality to alert the vehicles that come behind this 15 inch wheeled hatchback. The curvilinear face and the long curvy roof pave way for a lavish interior space. The twin ricochets that you would find on its roof makes it a tough one and offers a heftier overall look.
The quadrilateral shaped glass window at the rear is an eye grabber and there is also a first time windscreen viper at the window on the rear. The boot lid is designed as a hatch opener and does not have a keyless entry.

Impressive Interiors

The extremely spacious interior of Nissan Micra is all set to leave you baffled, as it can easily accommodate 5 passengers. The appealing and vast cabin space is impressive and it maintains the basic look of the cabin prom its siblings. It flaunts an upgraded upholstery material, rich features and finishes. The lively cabin boasts of a contemporary look and has an induced cozy feel to the passengers.


The center console includes a splendid look offered by the piano black finish along with a dash chrome on the door handles enhances the look of its interior while the seats of the right size enjoy a high quality upholstery in polyvinyl fabric that are perfectly stitched to offer enough comfort to the passenger while travelling for long hours.


If you are in the driver seat of the Nissan Micra then you would surely belong to the blessed lot category, as you can adjust and control the car within few minutes as all controls are placed in and around the center of the dashboard. The sturdy steering wheel offers a better grip while holding on and has buttons mounted on the steering that allows the driver the practical solution of having better control over sound system.


Though this car has a compact design, it has a very lavish cabin space which is similar to a sedan. There is enough boot space between the seats on the front and back. If one wishes to store more luggage, then folding the rear seats would offer more storage space. It also has lot of other options such as the keyless push button start, reverse parking camera, efficient sound system with 4 speakers and electric windows. It also has an aux in port that lets you hook to the music system via. an ipod, USB device or your mobile phone. 

Nissan Micra is also equipped with an array of safety features such as airbags to the driver, airbags at the side and for passengers (for high end variants only), follow me home lamps, Auto Door Locks with Speed sensing technology, immobilizer etc.

Engine, Transmission and Performance

Nissan has maintained the same engine that powered its previous hatchback siblings. This petrol engine with 3 cylinders and 12 valve has the ability to deliver 75 bhp at 6000 rate per minute with a manual transmission and 76 bhp at 6000 rpm with a CVT. It offers a max. torque of 104 Nm at 4000 rpm and 4400 rpm based on the transmission type. The 1.2 liter engine offers a mileage of 14.07 kmpl inside the city and 20.4 kmpl on the highway.


The manual transmission with 5 speed is standard in all variants except the one with CVT. The auto transmission system assures high mileage when compared to other variants that run on petrol. This car also has a frontal suspension which is McPherson strut type and the rear features torsion beam that are developed to offer a enjoyable drive, while flaunting sportive punch while driving through the bends and corners.

This makes the car perfect for the city roads as it can offer a better control at demanding situations. Even at low speed, the car offers a smooth drive without making you feel shaky like other cars of the same category.
Suspension and Braking

The 2014 Nissan Micra arrives with a huge ventilated disk brakes at the front and is equipped with a number of features like steering that are assisted by electric power, brake assist (BA) and ABS or Anti-lock Brake System. This makes sure that the handling of the car is much easier and assures you that it will not skid when you are making sharp turns or apply a sudden brake. With McPherson type of suspension and forks of torsion beam would make driving a memorable experience and makes it stable on all kinds of roads.


Nissan Micra is manufactured locally and hence it is available readily. This hatchback car offers good value for your money and is reasonably priced when compared to other cars of the same category. Though it looks very small and compact on the outer, it is extremely spacious inside and can seat 5 passengers without stuffing them on the seats. This car can be easily maneuvered in traffic packed roads and has loads of exceptional features that make it a performer. If you are looking for a fully functional car which can also be easy on your pocket, say, about 4.5 lacs to 9.5 lacs (ex-showroom, Delhi) you can choose to purchase a high variant of Nissan Micra, as low end variants are not equipped with ABS with BA or EBD (Electronic Brake-Force Distribution).
