Nissan is about to launch its first small car in India and here is what the carmaker has to offer with this new product. Nissan Micra is an Indian A2 hatchback with a difference. Firstly, the car falls under the Rs 5 lakh category and it is manufactured on a new "V" platform. Right now, Nissan Micra would be available in a 1.2L petrol only and the Logan 1.5 litre diesel is expected in about 6 months along with an automatic transmission. The Micra has a 3 cylinder DOHC 1198cc petrol engine producing at 75 BHP at 6,000 rpm and 104 NM of torque at 4,000 rpm. Idling is silent, refinement leagues ahead of an A-Star and there is hardly any rocking motion felt inside. Size wise, the Nissan Micra is in the same category as Maruti Swift. The moment you see the car its bug-eyed headlamps and twin grille give it a very cute look. Women and youngsters are likely to be impressed by the style more than the die hard car enthusiast. The Micra has a standard driver airbag as standard which sets it apart from market leaders like Maruti, Tata and Hyundai. In the top variant there are features like dual airbags, ABS and EBD brakes, climate control, keyless entry and go, engine start / stop button, tilt-adjustable steering, 4 power windows, engine immobilizer, 4 speaker audio system with CD / MP3 / AUX compatibility, multi-information display and rear wash / wipe. One of the key features of the Nissan Micra are the key sensors on door handles that let you open the car with the key in you pocket. The Nissan Micra follows a circular design pattern everywhere.
