Nissan’s in-house tuning division, Nismo, has been busy the past few months rolling out performance tuned concepts one after another. We’ve already seen the Juke Nismo Concept, the 370Z Nismo Concept, and the Leaf Nismo Concept a few months ago.
Now, it’s the Nissan Micra’s turn.
Unveiled at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon, the Micra Nismo comes packed with some appealing aerodynamic modifications that’s right in line with what the Juke and Leaf had.
On the outside, the Micra Nismo comes with a bolder styling that’s a far departure from the mild-mannered look of the standard model. It has a modified front grille, a redesigned door mirror design, a new rear lip spoiler, and a slew of other aerodyamic parts that adds an aggressive tone to the little hatchback. Just like the Juke Nismo Concept, the Micra Nismo was given a Pearl White paint finish with matching red highlights. Inside, Nismo also added and modified a few more amenities, including new sports seats, a custom steering wheel, and a dash of high-quality interior trim.
Then there’s the performance enhancements. Despite not releasing any figures for the car, Nismo wasn’t unabashed in saying that the Micra Nismo comes with a lowered suspension, as well as getting fitted with new light alloy wheels wrapped in high-performance tires.
