The top end variants for Nissan Micra diesel come as XV and XV Premium. There is an XV variant in the petrol league for Micra too, though that is equipped with automatic transmission. With added safety and comfort features Micra Diesel XV naturally feels more luxurious than XE, XL and XL (O).
Let us now check the extra elements that Nissan has put in this version of the hatch:
The external design theme is the same as in other avatars of Micra. With striking high mounted headlamp pods and two part front grille, the hatch gets its distinguishing look. On the sides you observe a curved window line that really aids in paring the visual bulk of the rather erect and plump C-pillar. Big glass area on the boot gives the driver a lot of visibility. The glass also has a wiper. All other features are the same as in the XL (O). But in this high end variant, Nissan gives you lighter alloy wheels instead of steel ones as in others.
Feel of cabin with regards to general comfort and space is comparable to the XL (O). The change (from XL O) that catches attention is on the central console – it has a radiant piano black finish and a dash of silver also adds to its visual appeal. All other interior features are replica of the mid segment variant of the diesel Micra.
Comfort and Convenience
Micra diesel XV is equipped with a host of features for added comfort while driving. The rear view mirrors on the doors are electrically adjustable and they also fold in automatically when you park the car. There is a boot glass defroster with timer in this variant. Driver’s seat can be adjusted for height. And yes, the engine can be started conveniently with a push button. The car can identify its smart key’s unique signal letting you lock and unlock doors at the tap of button.
Along with standard safety features as in the XL (O), this top end variant also has an added air bag for the front passenger and engine immobilizer with alarm.
There is a difference of about Rs.47000 between the price of Micra diesel XL (O) and Xv – that’s what you need to pay for some extra comfort and safety.
