The 2019 Nissan Micra is a compact hatchback that mixes both traditional and modern exterior design. New Micra will offer a modern interior that is finished in a two-tone scheme and it looks stunning. Moreover, there will be up to three engine options and numerous trim levels. Nissan will also offer a Micra Bose Personal Edition that delivers unique exterior design and premium audio system.
The forthcoming 2019 Micra really reminds us of the Ford Fiesta. Honda surprised us all with the bubbly compact hatchback, especially in today’s world where the crossovers and SUVs are dominating the market. Honda’s designers are deploying not such a usual styling and we must admit that this hatchback looks really modern and interesting.
2019 Nissan Micra exterior changes
The arriving model will largely depart from its predecessor when it comes to exterior design. Visually, every part of the body will get something new and refreshing. The front end sports a larger V-motion grille. The grille is chromed-out and the hood looks aggressive. Headlights are all-new and are both wider and shorter. Both fog lights and daytime running lights are distinctive and generally, the whole front part looks meaner.
Aggressive styling continues to the lower fascia and to the sides with new lines and creases. The side profile looks evolutionary. The side mirrors sits down further and the lines are curved toward the taillights. The rear end will get new reverse lights and the rear fascia adds a wider black insert.
2019 Nissan Micra interior looks modern and futuristic
The interior was one of the Nissan’s primary focuses and the Japanese carmaker didn’t fail. The 2019 Nissan Micra looks really modern and futuristic. The black interior has also some orange accents. The dash is smaller and it sports rectangular HVAC vents. Circular vents are present as well and chrome surroundings are visible too. A 7-inch display sits on the dashboard and it provides access to the navigation, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and audio system.
Bose audio system adds six speakers but we are yet to find out official specifications. The infotainment system is a smaller digital display and the steering wheel comes with a flat bottom. Silver inserts are there on the gear shifter and the instrument cluster is all-new. The comfort is great and the front seats are very sporty. The seats are also wrapped in a black-orange color scheme, the support is great and the cushions are flat.
2019 Nissan Micra engine variants
While there is no official confirmation, the 2019 Nissan Micra will get three engine choices. For the start, the base unit is a 0.9-liter gasoline engine with three cylinders. It delivers 90 horses, just like the optional 1.5-liter diesel. According to some speculations, a 1.0-liter gasoline drivetrain will join the engine lineup as well and it will deliver 75 HP.
We can assume the top speed will be rated at around 100 mph and the acceleration improvements are unlikely. Micra will come with various systems such as active ride control and active trace control. Those two should improve the ride quality, significantly.
2019 Nissan Micra price and release date

The Japanese carmaker will offer a Bose Personal Edition model that is based on range-topping Tekna grade. This model is limited and only 3,000 vehicles will be sold in Europe.
