Flashback a couple of months and exactly on the 15th of April we shared with you the first ever pictures of Nissan Micra facelift, which we, just a couple of days back, came to know will also be the the Euro Spec car.
After Nissan officially unveiled it internationally, Autocar has come up with a pre-launch test drive review of the car in its new clothes. The car looks a lot fresher in its new looks with sharper headlamps, new face, wider stance and that grille! Current Micra is available in 5 trims apart from the 3 trims of the Micra Primo.
According to Autocar, new Micra will be available in three trims – XL, XV and XV Premium which means the base XE and XE Plus will be axed. Now, this brings us to the direct relevance with the price cut Micra that Nissan is testing extensively in India (See Spyshots). This means Nissan will place the lower cost Micra well below this new facelifted version and its pricing will span across to the base XE and XE Plus variants of the current Micra.
There are good chances of Nissan increasing the prices of this Micra facelift a wee bit. There will also be an Automatic CVT variant in petrol which will be available only in the XV trim. Micra facelift will come with the 1.2L petrol engine as well as the 1.5L diesel engine like the current variant.
The most important info shared here is that Nissan will launch the new Micra facelift towards the end of this month (June 2013) in India.
