The new Micra brings sporty styling inside and out, but little power to go with it

The Nissan Micra started life in the Japanese market in October of 1982 with the purpose of Competing against the Honda City and the Toyota Starlet. It was also a replacement for the ever-growing Nissan Cherry which has officially outgrown the supermini segment at the time. Over four generations, the Micra hadn’t changed much – it maintained a bubbly-like, somewhat boring appearance. But, for the 2016 Model year, Nissan ushered in a new generation. Debuting at the Paris Auto Show, the new Micra shared absolutely nothing with the previous models, except for its name. It comes complete with a new, modernized exterior and interior design, a handful of advanced safety technologies, and the option of two, 90-horsepower engines with a 73-horsepower gasoline engine available shortly after launch.

When Nissan pulled the covers off of the Micra in Paris, we here at TopSpeed were quite shocked at what Nissan had done to this bubbly little car. The days of round headlights and boring, lackluster design are long gone. Originally unable to compete with a lot of other vehicles in its segment, the Micra is now able to take on the likes of the Ford Fiesta and the Honda Jazz with pride, and it looks damn good doing it too. So, with that said, let’s take a look at Nissan’s revamped Micra and the newest threat to the supermini segment.
