A new Nissan Micra (March) marches on

At long last, Nissan has finally uncovered the all new Nissan Micra (March) at the 80th Geneva Motor Show. I believe the existing generation has been around for at least the past 6 years - quite a long production lifespan. Developed and built on Nissan's all-new V-platform, the Japanese supermini goes global with production set to take place at several overseas manufacturing sites including Thailand, India, Mexico and China. Expect Singapore's March to be sourced from the land of thousand smiles.

This fourth incarnation of the Micra is slightly longer and lower than its predecessor. Nissan claims that the extended wheelbase has further improved interior space.

Nissan's new city car will be offered with just two engines options, a naturally aspirated 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol producing 80HP and 108Nm, and a turbocharged version of the same engine with direct injection that pumps out 98HP and 142Nm of torque. Both versions of the 1.2-liter three-pot are available with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or Nissan's all-new Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

Sales of the new Micra are scheduled to start initially in Thailand in March 2010. Local fans of the Micra can expect to see the new model around mid 2010.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

The selling point of the old march is due to it's roundly shaped chassis.

I guess now it want to rekindle the old school 90's model yet want to retain the x-factor of the previous model....

The engine spec looks good for a 3 cylinder but was disappointed with the output of the directed injected turbo.... guess they have FC in mind rather than power.
