The new Nissan Micra 2018-2019 – photos and videos, the price and specifications, technical characteristics of the 5th generation Japanese hatchback Nissan Mikra, surprised by the mass of revolutionary innovations, both for the representative of the European B-class. The official world premiere of the Nissan Micra 5 took place in the suburbs of Paris on the territory of the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles in early October 2016. Production of new items will start at the plant of the company Renault-Nissan in Flin, located on the outskirts of the French capital. The start of European sales of the new compact hatchback Nissan Mikra is planned for the spring of the next 2017 at a price of 10,500 euros. In Russia, the new Nissan Micra will not officially be sold, at least in the salons of official Nissan dealers.
In the beginning of the review, briefly about the revolutionary innovations applied in the creation of the 5th generation Japanese hatchback Mikra: super stylish and dynamic body design, modern and highly functional interior, unique Bose Personal audio system, a huge list of electronic security systems, adaptive Active Ride Control suspension and assistance system Active Turnce Control, turbocharged three-cylinder petrol 90-horsepower engine.
Now let’s look at each of the items in detail and, of course, start with the appearance of the novelty. The exterior design of the body of the new Nissan Micra hatchback for many car enthusiasts is possible and would be a real revelation … if not for one but. Serial hatchback was almost an exact copy of the concept of Nissan Sway, presented in spring 2015 in Geneva. And although ready to stand on the Micra conveyor does not look as futuristic as the prototype, the overall chic concept is preserved. There is a proprietary falshradiator grille of the Japanese V-motion company, stylish headlights with neat angles of LED daytime running lights, a huge front bumper monument with bright aerodynamic elements and an original hood.
The body profile looks at the same time refined and dynamic: a domed roof with a hindquarters hovering over the last squeak of the car’s fashion, a powerful undulating rib that prescribes the sidewall of the body from the hood to the stern at the level of the door handles. Back door handles, by the way, are hidden in the window frame, like a hot Italian hatchback, the ideal radii of wheel arches, doors with undulating surfaces, a neat compact food.
Behind the new Nissan Micro, the designers were rewarded with LED boomerang lights, a compact tailgate and a massive bumper.
Complement the excellent appearance of the novelty of 10 variants of enamel colors, the brightest of which is Energy Orange, a wide choice of alloy wheels and a lot of options for car personalization. According to representatives of Nissan such a set allows you to create 125 original images of a hatchback.
The exterior dimensions of the body of the new Nissan Micra 2018-2019 are 3995 mm in length, 1742 mm in width, 1455 mm in height, with 2525 mm of wheelbase and 145 mm of ground clearance.
The coefficient of the front body drag is only 0.29 Cx.
As an option, large 17-inch alloy wheels with low-profile 205/45 R17 tires are available, as for the compact B-class hatchback.
The new 5-generation Nissan Miqa hatchback, compared to the boring predecessor, not only looks phenomenally attractive and sporty, but also significantly increased in size. The body length of the new generation increased by an impressive 215 mm, width by 77 mm, the size of the base added 75 mm, and only in height the novelty became less by 70 mm.
The increase in the size of the wheelbase and the competent layout of the cabin made it possible to add noticeably places for the legs in both the first and second rows. Passengers of the second row in the salon of the new generation of Mikra are noticeably more comfortable than in the interior of the predecessor of the 4th generation model, that’s just above the head of the place at least. All the blame is the rapidly dropping to the stern roof line, taking such necessary centimeters near the height of the body.
We want to note the rather high quality of materials used for decoration, with the possibility of selecting decorative inserts of different colors (front panel, central tunnel and chairs).
Further more and steeper: a highly informative instrument panel with a color screen of the on-board computer, a stylish and comfortable multifunctional steering wheel with a sporty trimmed bottom rim, a multimedia system with a 7-inch touchscreen (Apple CarPlay, Siri voice control, mutual understanding with smartphones, navigation) Around View Monitor (panoramic view system), advanced Bose Personal audio system with Bose Super65 speakers in the front door maps, located in the front pillars with tweeters and original sound points UltraNearfield in the head restraints of the front seats. Also available is a Bose Virtual Audio system that provides surround sound, Lane Departure Prevention (by the way, it’s installed for the first time on a B segment car), Intelligent Emergency Braking (Traffic Sign Recognition, High Beam Assist and Blind Spot Warning, air conditioning or climate control.
