2010 Geneva Motor Show marked the launch of the new generation of Nissan’s Micra. It was designed and built on the new global platform “V” for those at Nissan. In Europe, the Japanese manufacturer will introduce two versions of the new generation engine.
The first of these will be represented by a petrol powered 1.2 liter three-cylinder that delivers 80 horsepower and develops a torque of 108 Nm. Emissions of CO2 from the engine and the brand are communicated to officials of 115 g / km.
The second unit will be represented by a gasoline engine of 1.2 liter turbocharged and direct injection which delivers 97 horsepower and develops a torque of 142 Nm. This engine has been designed to lower emissions of CO2; they reached 95 g / km, but also to reduce fuel through the stop-start system that will be fitted.
Both versions of the new Micra will have a five-speed manual transmission or an automatic transmission box CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). As for the optional accessories that can be added to, Nippon can bring to its customers parking sensors, satellite navigation and panoramic roof. The new Micra can be purchased by Europeans starting this fall.
