If you live in United Kingdom and you’re in the market for a new supermini but the Ford Fiesta is not your cup of tea, then you might be interested in the funky Nissan Micra that has received a price cut as the base Visia model can be your if you are willing to spend 7,995 pounds. In other words, the entry-level variant is now 1,755 pounds cheaper than before without any changes as far as the equipment offered is concerned so you’ll still be getting Bluetooth, regardless of the chosen trim level. The Japanese automaker has also reduced the price tag for all the other Micra variants offered in the UK, such as the Acenta which is now just 9,995 pounds, compared to its previous 11,250 pounds price tag.
As far as the Acenta Connect is concerned, this one comes with the company’s Connect touchscreen satellite navigation system and costs 1,255 pounds less than before so you will end up paying only 10,495 pounds. Revealed a few days ago during the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the special edition Micra Elle is now 11,195 pounds compared to its previous 12,000 pounds price.
The high-end version of the Nissan Micra is the Tekna that is available from now on for 11,545, down from the previous 12,800 pounds. This variant comes with rear parking sensors, parking space measurement, panoramic glass roof, climate control, automatic headlights and rain sensing wipers.
Engine choices have remained untouched so you can get your Nissan Micra with one of the two variants of the 3-cylinder 1.2-liter gasoline engine, with either 79 hp for the naturally-aspirated version or with 97 hp in the supercharged form. This power unit can be connected to either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic.
