Driver airbag in every variant of a small hatch? Wow, that is a first!

Sid, good show with the scoop, again.

From the pics I found on google it looks like a beetle design gone wrong! Is it the same Nissan Micra that's available with the 1.4L engine in UK?

Price looks 'ok' considering Driver side Airbag as standard. Could have been priced a bit low though.

New Nissan Micra : Full details & specs. EDIT - Launch on 14th July!-d-2.jpg

side resembles old beetle and is evolutionary as compared to previous micra. Yet it looks refreshing.
New Nissan Micra : Full details & specs. EDIT - Launch on 14th July!-d-3.jpg

front 3 quarter-evokes mixed reactions, some called it a baby cayenne.

side angle.
New Nissan Micra : Full details & specs. EDIT - Launch on 14th July!-d-8.jpg

fron this angle, the car looks delicate and quiet mundane.
New Nissan Micra : Full details & specs. EDIT - Launch on 14th July!-d-9.jpg

rear angle is bland, this car is a love it or hate it design.
New Nissan Micra : Full details & specs. EDIT - Launch on 14th July!-d-10.jpg

taillights inspired from mini cooper.rear fog lights are NOT standard.
New Nissan Micra : Full details & specs. EDIT - Launch on 14th July!-d-11.jpg

rear legroom is at a premium but good for a car of this size.

rear seat just about average in terms of comfort and cushioning.
Upright angle could be potentially tiring.
Integrated head restraints pretty useless as they are placed very low.

rear doorpad. Plastics are good quality and soft to touch. design is ordinary. No door pockets.

I think it means that the glass when rolled up will stop if it finds some obstruction (like somebody's hand for example). In some vehicles, the glass will start rolling down also.

Simply amazing sid.
Am planning to buy a hatch and have almost finalized on swift. However, will need to reconsider my decision.

Amazing scoop again Sid. Hope to see more detailed info as we go along.

So this is another reason for confusion for the already confused hatchback buyer.

I think the price is already on par compared to Swift/Ritz, and it's really hard for foreign players to match Maruti pricing in India!

It's unsure of how well it'll sell in the male buyer territory, though there's gonna be a lotta ladies pickin' 'em up for sure!
As far as the current hatch competition goes, the specs on this one are really tempting. So there's still a high possibility of the Micra doing good in the market.

P.S. Sidindica, will you try doing a review on the new generation Teana that I see in some pictures? The rear resembles/reminds one of the Camry and the E-class Merc and sure is sinfully sexy for the price it comes for!

At this price I do not see any reason for complain. But we (as Indians) always want more bang for the buck. Don't we ?? I personally don't like any car that is rounded (like the A Star)

BUT the price is attractive & NISSAN has shown it's intention of being in the game seriously.

So far whatever they launched did petty numbers, this one should open the market for them. When people (no offence to anyone) can like the Ritz or the Beat. They would love this.

In my books the Ritz & the Beat are the most horrendous looking cars, I hate the rakish angles, not required I think, but then that is me.



Cheers
