#1
Information 

Japanese auto major Nissan has uncovered its latest ultra modern car model, Micra at the Geneva Motor show. The latest model is expected to be manufactured in the Chennai unit of Nissan.

Nissan Micra is built on the V- Platform and has been tested in Japan. The company has eyed in tripling the sales of this unit in more than 160 countries including the leading markets like India, China, Mexico and Thailand.

The new Micra has a rounded shape with accented waistline. It has a 5 speed manual transmission and is also available in the CVT segment. The car is run with an 80 HP 1.2 liter engine. There is also an alternate 1.2 direct-injection three-cylinder engine to generate 98 HP. These engines have been designed superbly to save fuel. Apart from that it has also special safety features to protect the driver in case of a crash.

On the design front, the model looks stronger than the previous model. It has Boomerang-shaped grooves on the roof to reduce resonance in the cabin. The interior part has also more space.

The company has slashed the cost of the car despite new improvements. It is designed to support other models, including a Micra sedan. According to a company official, the Micra is projected to be a key model in the coming days.

Nissan Australia's CEO, Dan Thompson says, “It is the key driver for us as part of our five-year growth plan, which ends in 2012.”

“The first part of the plan was brand building. Now, with the launch of Micra, we move into the growth part of the plan,” he adds.

“It offers us a lot of flexibility. But at this stage the number one priority is the hatch, which is 90 per cent of the segment," he says.
