When was the last time you saw a sticker price of a $9,998 on a new car? No, that’s not a misprint – that’s exactly what Nissan is bringing to the market with the all-new 2015 Micra.
Canada’s fastest-growing non-luxury brand is giving Canadians exclusive North American access to this fun hatch back.
The $9,998 Nissan Micra 1.6 S comes standard with an engaging manual transmission and a zippy 1.6L DOHC four-cylinder engine putting out 109 hp and 107 lb-ft of torque.
The fuel-efficient engine punches above the Micra’s 1,044 kg curb weight, allowing drivers to slice through city traffic with ease.
Slicing through city traffic or zipping around highway on-ramps is a joy thanks to Micra’s confident handling and fantastic manoeuvrability. And when it’s time to take a break, the Micra’s ultra-tight turning circle and small footprint takes the stress out of parking – even a first-time driver could reverse parallel park this car like a pro.
Nissan also takes the intimidation factor of first-time car ownership away with the Nissan First Time Buyer Program. It gives you access to pre-approved credit online and helps you get used to making the monthly payments that establish good credit. Payments which, happily, will be finished before you know it.
Proving that great value doesn’t have to mean compromise, Nissan’s Micra is a head turner as well as a performer.
Micra’s innovative styling sculpted lines and large headlights ensure it stands out from the crowd, bringing high-price looks without the high price. Body-colour mouldings and available fog lights further accentuate Micra’s playful appearance. Surprising features like hands-free Bluetooth connectivity, USB input, auxiliary input and Steering wheel–mounted audio controls allow you to control your iPod or Bluetooth media device without taking your hands off the wheel. While the 4.3” colour display tells you exactly what’s playing and where you are in your playlists.
Fashion-forward drivers will appreciate the seven different colour options; Red Alert, Metallic Blue, Brilliant Silver, Magnetic Grey, Super Black, Fresh Powder and Caspian Sea, and the three available personalization packages will ensure your Micra stands out from the crowd.
Whether you’re playing in the city on a Friday night, or off on a wine tour with friends the Micra has you covered with space for five adults and supplies. Going snowboarding for the weekend? Fold the 60/40 split-fold rear seats down and the cargo space expands to over 800 L for luggage and other bulkier items.
The all-new 2015 Nissan Micra inspires confidence with available safety and convenience items like the rear-view monitor – so you can look like a pro as you squeeze the Micra into even the smallest city parking space – and cruise control to take the stress out of highway drives.
All Micra’s come standard with advanced active safety features like four-wheel anti-lock brakes and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS) and passive safety features like side-curtain airbags.
Micra is available in three trims: the $9,998 Micra S, Micra SV starting at $13,698 or the fully loaded Micra SR with 16-inch alloy wheels for $15,748.
