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.
