The new Nissan Micra has been spied testing in the UK.
Spotted by autocar.co.uk reader Mark Waites, the heavily disguised car was running on the M1, heading back to Nissan's Technical Centre in Cranfield, which is undertaking much of the development work on the car.
While Waites was unable to get a close up picture of the whole car, his photos clearly show the distinctly curved rear end of the car and the overall shape of it.
The new Micra will be the first car to be built on a new global small car platform, designed to be cheap enough to build and sell in developing markets but also sophisticated enough for Western Europe.
Nissan claims car makers usually take an existing platform and strip content from it for use in emerging markets. This project takes a platform engineered primarily for those areas, then adapts it for mature markets.
