SCOOP! Nissan readying low-cost Micra

Low-cost Micra will compete with the likes of the i10 and Brio and is expected to reach showrooms by March.

The Nissan Micra  was launched in the Indian market in 2010 and the company is now planning a lower cost variant (code:G02A) which is expected in March this year.

The car was spotted on the outskirts of Chennai with taped tail-lamps. As seen in the photographs, taken by Gautam, one of our readers, the updated Micra could get a new tail-lamp cluster. However, the rear bumper and wheel cap designs look similar to the current car and are unlikely to be changed. The interiors however, will see some changes owing to cost cutting efforts by the carmaker. The adjustable front headrests will to be replaced by a cheaper single piece design that is integrated with the seat. Nissan plans to delete some other features as well.  The current Micra is priced at Rs 4.23 lakh for the base petrol and Rs 5.98 lakh for the base diesel variant (ex-showroom, Delhi).
 
However, the G02A is expected to cost around Rs. 70,000 less to compete head on with the likes of the Hyundai i10 and Honda Brio.
