The Nissan Micra has been given a substantial interior makeover as part of a series of mid-life changes designed to shake off the supermini’s budget car tag.
Nissan describes the changes as “comprehensive”, going “deeper than a mere makeover”. As well as an overhauled interior, there are new looks for the front and rear ends and glut of new technology and entertainment options to help lift the Micra from the budget end of the supermini sector and towards the likes of Ford’s Fiesta.
Inside, there is a new centre console with a larger, 5.8-inch touchscreen that features the latest NissanConnect infotainment system, complete with Google search technology.
New trim, higher-quality fabrics and more textured plastics have been added inside the Micra to further enhance its visual appeal.
The exterior changes include a different front end, with a new grille, bonnet, bumper, headlights and foglight surrounds. At the rear, there are new LED lights, revised tailgate trim and a redesigned bumper.
