Nissan India has launched the new Micra hatchback in India, updated with new and enhanced safety features. The price of the 2018 Micra starts at Rs 5.03 lakh (ex-showroom). The new version has been updated with dual airbags as standard and ABS (anti-lock braking system) is also equipped on all trims, except the base variant. The new Nissan Micra has now also been updated with speed sensing door lock and driver seat belt reminder.
When it comes to the exterior, the 2018 Micra remains largely the same, except now the turn indicators have been integrated into the ORVMs (outside rear view mirror). The most affordable hatchback in its segment continues to feature auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, steering mounted controls and automatic climate control. 2018 Micra Active gets keyless entry, height adjustable driver’s seat, manual air-conditioner, and steering mounted audio controls.
