Nissan will bring the next gen Micra in India by 2019, as reported by Autocar. The India-bound Micra design will be based on the European model and it will be underpinned by the CMF A plus platform. It is also expected that India-bound Micra might get a 1.5-litre petrol engine that produces 106 hp of power, however, the hatchback misses out diesel engine. The unit will be mated to a five-speed manual and Nissan's X-Tronic automatic gearbox as an optional. The European model of the Micra is available with three engines options-1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine and 0.9-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre  four-cylinder diesel engine. The next-gen Micra will also get updates such as two-tone dashboard, rear spoilers, 16-inch alloy-wheels and  7.0-inch Nissan Connect touchscreen infotainment system. The safety features will include the  ABS, dual airbags, reverse camera and rear parking sensors.

In addition, the company is also planning to give a makeover to its sedan, Sunny, which is expected to be launched in 2018.The new sedan will have an extended wheelbase, hence offering more leg room at the back. Under the hood, the 2018 Sunny will get a 1.5-litre petrol engine that is currently used in Duster. The engine is expected to produce 104 hp of power and will be mated to a Nissan X-Tronic CVT transmission. However, the new generation Sunny is likely to miss out on a diesel engine, as well.

The current generation, Nissan Micra is available at a price tag Rs. 5.99 - Rs 7.23 Lakh. Ex-showroom, Delhi. It is expected that the next gen Micra will be priced higher than the existing Micra.
