Good: The new Micra facelift has a lot going for it to take on the segment leaders. Its impressive new design, more equipment and a fuel efficient automatic gearbox make it a much better car than before.
Bad: The CVT automatic gearbox heavily blunts the performance of the 1.2-litre petrol engine. With suspension tuned keeping ride comfort as priority, the Micra isn't much behind the wheel.
Verdict: The new Micra facelift is one car that could help Nissan build up its position in the small car segment of India. it feels competent enough to taken on the usual list of competitors like Maruti Suzuki Swift, Volkswagen Polo and the Renault Pulse.
