The 2017 Nissan Micra has been teased in a new video ahead of its debut at the Paris motor show next week.

Nissan hasn’t released any official information about the all-new hatchback, but previous spy pictures confirm it will have a radical new exterior design.

The video suggests this new look will be accompanied by a long list of vibrant colours, as Nissan attempts to give its Micra model a revamped image.

Earlier spy pictures suggest the Ford Fiesta rival will also be a five-door only model, and the car’s overall dimensions look to have grown significantly compared with the outgoing model.

More information will be released when the car is revealed to the public at this month’s Paris motor show.

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
