PostHeaderIcon Nissan Micra Bose Personal Edition

The Nissan Micra is a good subcompact car that Nissan has relied on to compete against the likes of the Ford Fiesta and the Honda Jazz. It’s certainly made a name for itself in its segment, but the last thing you’d probably associate with the Micra is a premium sound system company like Bose. Then again, the auto industry is a business of never-ending surprises, and we were treated to one such surprise at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Nissan brought with it the Micra Bose Personal Edition, a special edition iteration of the subcompact car that was developed to celebrate the collaboration between Nissan and, you guessed it, Bose.

There is some initial surprise in seeing a car like the Micra get the full Bose treatment, but once that first reaction wears off, you’ll be happy to know that the Micra Bose Personal Edition is actually a pretty interesting offering. Sure, Bose is heavily involved, particularly when it comes to the car’s sound system, but the car isn’t just about Bose either. It also has a choice of unique paint colors and a wide range of added accessories courtesy of the car’s very own personalization program.

Yep, the Nissan Micra has its own version of Porsche Exclusive or McLaren Special Operations, relative, of course, to the quality and price point of its segment. Oh, and while we’re at it, the Micra Bose Limited Edition also has a trove of tech and standard equipment, all thanks to the fact that the whole run of limited edition models – 3,000 in total – are based on the range-topping Tekna trim.

As far as cars with personalities are concerned, the Nissan Micra Bose Personal Edition makes no bones about what makes it special. You can point to the fancy-schematic color scheme or the aforementioned menu of tech and equipment, but at the end of the day, this limited run version of the Micra is all about Bose.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan Micra Receives Its First Special Edition In Geneva

Nissan has launched the first special edition for the fifth-generation Micra subcompact car. It’s called the Bose Personal Edition and it features some wild color accents on the outside, an even wilder interior color scheme, and of course, an upgraded Bose sound system. Nissan is making 3,000 examples available to Europeans starting in the summer of 2017.

The Bose Personal Edition is based on the Micra’s range-topping trim, the Tekna grade. Both the turbocharged 0.9-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine and the 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel will be available. But the drivetrain options aren’t the story. Rather is the attention-grabbing color scheme and blaring radio.

The Micra comes in a choice of Enigma Black or Gunmetal Grey – both accented by the bright Energy Orange stripes and wheel inserts. The orange color is also found on the side mirrors. Special badging on the B-pillar denotes this being a Bose Personal Edition.

Inside, the black interior is heavily brightened by the fiery orange color. The seats have orange accents along the bolsters and down the backrests. The Center console gets padded leather pieces colored in the stuff. Even the center dash section burns brightly with Energy Orange. Quite honestly, the finished product isn’t terrible looking. In fact, it adds quite the personality to Nissan’s little economy car.

But the biggest news is the stereo. It only uses six speakers but maximizes sound via Bose’s latest signal processing technology. “We engineered the Bose Personal sound system to deliver unexpectedly big sound from a limited number of components,” said Marc Mansell, VP at Bose Automotive Systems. “Using just six high-performance speakers and our latest signal processing technology, the system rewards Micra owners with a superior, fully-customizable audio experience unlike anything else available today.”

Beyond the stereo, the car includes navigation, Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition, Traffic Sign Recognition, High Beam Assist, and Intelligent Lane Intervention. Options include Nissan’s Around View Monitor, heated front seats, and a spare tire.

PostHeaderIcon New Nissan Micra Debuts In Paris With Revolutionary Design

The highly-anticipated fifth-generation Nissan Micra made its global debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Sporting a revolutionary design that sets it apart from the not-so-exciting fourth-gen car, the new Micra remained faithful to the Sway concept unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

What makes it revolutionary, you ask?

Well, the Micra has always been a car that didn’t adhere too much to the rest of the Nissan family in terms of design. The small hatchback usually featured styling cues of its own, while the overall impression was that of a bubble on wheels. All told, it wasn’t exactly exciting to look at — even though some found it to be cute — compared to most of its competitors. This changes with the fifth-generation car, which was redesigned to include most of the design language seen on larger Nissan models.

Specifically, it now has a large V-motion grille flanked by squinty, sporty looking headlamps, boomerang-shaped taillights, a floating roof with blacked-out B- and C-pillars, a sculpted character line that runs from the nose all the way back to the tailgate. The hatchback is also lower, wider, and longer than its predecessor, which not only gives it a more aggressive stance, but also provides a lot of extra interior room.

Speaking of the cabin, it is packed with state-of-the-art technology and numerous features usually available in larger cars. The Micra comes with Lane Departure Prevention, a segment first, Intelligent Emergency Braking with pedestrian recognition, a first for Nissan vehicles in Europe, as well as Intelligent Around View Monitor, Traffic Sign Recognition, High Beam Assist and Blind Spot Warning

The engine lineup now includes a 0.9-liter, turbocharged, three-cylinder, gasoline unit and a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder diesel, both developing 90 horsepower and both shared with other Nissan and Renault cars. A naturally aspirated 73-horsepower 1.0-litre gas mill will be added to the lineup later on. European sales are set to commence from March 2017.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan Micra

The Nissan Micra hit the Japanese market in October of 1982 with the purpose of competing against the Honda City and the Toyota Starlet, and as a replacement for the growing Nissan Cherry, which had outgrown the supermini sector. Since its initial debut, it has seen four different generations with the most recent debuting in 2010. The Micra has received a mid-cycle facelift since then, but it’s about time for another generational overhaul, and Nissan is already in the testing phase.

What we’re looking at here is what we believe to be the fifth-generation Micra, and even though it is under heavy camo and padding, it looks like it will be dramatic redesign over the current model. Sources have indicated that the new Micra will use the CMF B platform that has been developed within the Renault-Nissan alliance, which will also underpin the next-generation Nissan Juke.

As you can see from a glance, the new Micra will likely borrow some design cues from the Nissan Pulsar and the Nissan Sway concept that we saw last year at the Geneva Auto Show. We expect the new Micra to make its official debut later this year at the Paris Auto Show, but there is no official word on its release. Until Nissan does pull the sheet off its redesigned Micra, let’s take a look at the spy shots and see what we can make out.

Updated 07/21/2016: The upcoming Nissan Micra was caught testing one more time, this time wearing less camouflage than in the past. Its getting even more obvious that the new generation will get a revolutionary design when compared to the current Micra.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan Micra Cup Limited Edition

The Nissan Micra might not be available here in the U.S., but it’s quite a popular car in Europe and Asia. Often praised for its reliability, good build quality, and user friendliness, the Micra soldiered on for more than three decades and four generations as of 2016. Sure, early models were far from safe in the event of a crash and the current model has been criticized for the lack of headroom in the rear and a cramped trunk, but that didn’t stopNissan from developing a Nismo-badged version back in 2013. For 2016, the Japanese are offering yet another motorsport-inspired model, this time around based on the Micra Cup race car.

I know it may seem shocking, but yes, the Nissan Micra has its very own racing series in some countries, including Canada, where the Nissan Micra Cup debuted in 2015. Not to mention that the Micra isn’t exactly new to the racing scene. The supermini made its motorsport debut in 1987 and it has since been used in various racing series, including rallying. This tradition continues in 2016 with a new edition of Canada’s Micra Cup and to celebrate the event, Nissan is launching the Cup Limited Edition model.

“Canada’s most affordable subcompact, the Nissan Micra, and Canada’s most affordable race series, the Nissan Micra Cup, are developing a passionate following. I am delighted to offer enthusiasts of both the Nissan Micra and the Nissan Micra Cup a new model that brings a sense of spec series racing to public roads,” said Joni Paiva, president of Nissan Canada.

The new hatch is set to arrive in dealerships in early spring 2016.
