Nissan India launches Sporty Micra with 'more intelligent and enhanced safety features'

Automobiles manufacturer Nissan India has launched a variant of its premium hatchback Micra at a starting price of Rs. 5.03 lakh across India with what it says are "more intelligent and enhanced safety features".
"With a host of fun, intelligent and enhanced safety features, the new Nissan Micra is the best value-for-money premium hatchback available in India today," a press release from the company said.
“With a fusion of European styling and Japanese technology, the Micra is Nissan’s most popular models in over 100 countries. Catering to the needs of Indian consumers for a safer, interactive and a more intelligent driving experience, we have introduced the more intelligent and sportier Nissan Micra with a host of features addressing these needs,” said  Hardeep Singh Brar, Director, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd.
According to the release, the safety features in the car include dual airbags, speed warning device, speed-sensing door lock and driver seat belt reminder.
"Much attention has been paid to meet the expectations of customers looking for intelligent features in the vehicle. Speed warning device, Reverse parking sensor and Reverse parking camera with built-in 6.2’’ Touch Screen AVN with Phone mirroring and Turn Indicators on ORVM offer Nissan Micra customers a raft of features and technology. This is combined with sleek and dynamic exterior styling, interior spaciousness and comfort as well as engaging and efficient on-road performance," the release said.
The release said NissanConnect - an integrated connected car technology, available in the new Micra, bundles together features for best-in-class security and convenience. Features like geo-fencing, speed alert, curfew alert, nearby pit stops, Locate My Car and Share My Car Location address the rising concerns regarding the safety and security of car users along with the control and well-being of the vehicle. Keyless entry and push-stop-start via intelligent Key, and ‘Lead Me to Car’, which guide passengers to their cars, make the drive experience more convenient, it said.
Customers of the new Nissan Micra have a choice of two powertrains - a 1.2-litre petrol engine paired with the performing-enhancing, globally popular X-Tronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), or a 1.5-litre diesel paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. Dual Airbags, Speed-sensing Door Lock and Driver Seat Belt Reminder come as standard across all variants, the release added.
