The new Micra
recently the details on the all new Nissan Micra were
revealed, and It seems the car has caused quite a stir!
I was reported that at the Frankfurt motor show, it
was difficult to get a close look due the the crowds
The new Micra, which will be built in Britain from
2002 is at the time of this page still officially a
concept. This allows Nissan to make any final changes
depending on how the public reacts, however Nissans
design head Shiro Nakanura said the car, code code named
mm.e, is at least 90% complete.
say that the new Micra is more appealing in real life,
but we like what we have seen already. Just like when
the K11 was introduced the new Micra is just as jaw
dropping. Again it instantly makes all other super-minis
look dated and we believe its a sure hit when it will
finally be released. Perhaps the most interesting thing
on this new car is its roof, its glass. The idea of
this which is continued through out the car is spaciousness,
It is 89mm wider and 44mm taller than the K11. The mm.e
code name means 'm'aximum interior space with 'm'inimal
external dimensions. The 'e' stands for Europe, which
is the largest market for the Micra and is infact Nissan
UK's best selling car.
Other interesting points is that the car shares the
same chassis as the Renault Clio, perhaps this will
lay the way to some interesting modifications!
