The X-Shift is a limited-edition variant; Base-trim Micra XL also launched with fourth-generation CVT gearbox.
Nissan today launched the Limited Edition Micra X-Shift. Only 750 units of the X-Shift will be available. The X-Shift trim celebrates Micra’s 5th anniversary in India.
The Micra X-Shift comes with a wide array of features such as a premium matte black roof wrap, an exhaust tip with a chrome finish and reverse parking sensors. On the inside, the premium hatchback gets silver-finished door armrests and LED scuff plates. The X-Shift also gets side stickers, along with an ‘X Shift’ sticker on the front passenger side.
Also launched is the base-trim Micra XL with a CVT (constantly variable transmission) automatic gearbox at a sticker price of Rs 6.4 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The automatic gearbox was previously offered only on the XV petrol trim, which was a trim lower than Micra’s top XV Premium variant.The fourth-generation CVT gearbox will be mated to Micra’s 1.2-litre petrol engine and will get a few additional features as compared to the standard Micra XL.
Extra features include a new steering wheel borrowed from the Sunny, a stylish black roof, glossy black finish for the audio console, driver armrest and illuminated door sills among others. It gets EBD, ABS, BA and four airbags as standard.
Currently, the mid-level XV trim of the Micra with a CVT gearbox is priced at Rs 7.05 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Micra X-Shift is based on the new Micra CVT XL. By offering the Micra base variant with a CVT gearbox, Nissan hopes to attract customers who are looking for the convenience of an automatic gearbox, without the want for any significant additions to the features on the variant.
