The Nissan Micra has always been a popular car leasing choice - and the refresh improves it!
The Nissan Micra has been a popular car with British drivers over the years, either as a first car or as a contract hire vehicle.
Now the Micra has undergone a refresh for 2021, and there's a lot to like about how the car has evolved.
There are some exterior tweaks and a new engine for better fuel efficiency, plus the premium Micra trims have been radically improved.
Nissan says part of the change is to deliver what customers are looking for and they say it's easier for them to find the ideal trim along with the engine that suits their needs.
The Nissan Micra N-Sport delivers a sporty premium look and what started out as a special edition has now become a central part of the car's line-up.
Along with gloss black rear, front and side finishing, the black mirror caps compliment the N-Sport’s black 17-inch alloy wheels.
The interior has also been redesigned with a focus on passenger and driver comfort with Alcantara seats and a matching dashboard.
Also, the seats in the Micra N-Sport have been replaced with ergonomically designed seats for better support to help reduce driver fatigue on long journeys.
The Nissan Micra Tekna is the ideal car leasing opportunity since it has advanced driving equipment and in-car entertainment technology.
Among them is Nissan’s intelligent around view monitor camera system.
This will help drivers park in difficult parking situations and there’s also a blind spot warning system fitted as standard.
The Tekna also features a Bose personal audio system for better sound quality with speakers fitted into the driver's head support to deliver a great sound experience.
The improved engine for the Micra models is a 1.0-litre turbocharged unit that meets Euro 6d emissions standards.
The engine has better torque which Nissan says will make driving the Micra easier and more comfortable with fewer gear changes so this trim will be ideal for those who drive in urban areas regularly.
For those who opt for the Micra Visia, then drivers will enjoy more safety equipment including hill start assist, intelligent ride control, and for difficult driving conditions, there's intelligent trace control.
Green Cars’ is the term used for zero, low and ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) - with pressure being applied to lower global emission levels, the need for “eco-friendly” vehicles is on the rise. Many countries now have plans in place to abolish the use of combustion engines before the turn of the century and so more and more vehicles we see on the roads will be Electric, hybrid or very low emission petrol and diesels.
Although beneficial to the environment, ‘Green Cars’ are also beneficial from a taxation view. The lower a vehicle’s emissions banding, the lower the taxation placed against it. Many manufacturers have tapped in to this ever-growing market with their own offerings, however, Volvo were the first manufacturer to state that every one of their models will be either electric or hybrid options from 2019.
