New Nissan Micra | Note Pricing Emerging

By raccars Published

Nissan has new versions of its Micra and Note models arriving after the summer and details about pricing and specifications are emerging. The order book is already open on the facelifted Micra, due out in September with a three model line up and prices starting at £9,950.

The range opens with the Micra Visia, with equipment including USB and Bluetooth connectivity, six airbags, electric windows to the front and remote control central locking. The middle model in the range is the Acenta, costing £11,550 and coming with alloy wheels, a leather trimmed steering wheel plus climate and cruise controls.

The range topping Micra will be the Tekna, for the price of £12,950 and featuring NissanConnect satellite navigation, a parking space measurement assist, parking sensors to the rear and keyless start.

Buyers have a choice of two 1.2 litre petrol engines, a basic 79bhp unit and a 97bhp DIG-S with supercharger. The Micra is equipped with a manual transmission as standard but there is an optional CVT on offer. The smaller engine is economical to the tune of 57mpg and 115g/km of CO2 emissions, but the higher powered unit will actually give you more miles to the gallon at 68.9 and CO2 emissions of 95g/km.

The car has also been redesigned with a more modern and masculine look.

A little while afterwards, buyers will see a new Nissan Note, with prices starting at £11,900. The revised compact MPV will cost slightly more than its predecessor and will come in the same trim levels as the Micra. The entry level Visia will get 15 inch steel wheels, cruise control, electric windows to the front and central locking.

The core model will be the mid range Acenta which, for £13,250, comes with alloys, air conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity. There is an extra trim level in the Acenta Premium for £14,150, with added NissanConnect satellite navigation, climate control and an optional all round camera view system.

The range topping Tekna costs £15,950 and will have the Around View Monitor and Safety Shield camera systems as standard, leather trimmed upholstery and steering wheel, keyless start and automatic air conditioning. Tekna buyers can also choose a Dynamic Styling Package for £800 for a sportier look.

The Note will be powered by the same engines as the new Micra plus the option of an 89bhp 1.5 litre dCi. Gearboxes are manual for all models but the DIG-S units can be specified with a CVT automatic.

The first new Notes will arrive in October, except for the DIG-S units which will be slightly later with a January 2014 delivery.
