Nissan Micra N-Sport comes with more powerful engines

Nissan Micra N-Sport

Nissan has announced several new members in the Micra family, including the new N-Sport, which has two new engines and the option for an automatic XTronic CVT gearbox.

Starting with the all-new 1.0-liter IG-T 100 engine, which replaced the 90 hp 0.9-liter unit, comes with 97 hp 160 Nm of torque. As a standard, the new Micra IG-T 100 will be fitted with a 5-speed manual gearbox, but Nissan will also offer an automatic XTronic CVT gearbox for this engine.

Nissan claims that the new Micra N-Sport be the most sporty member of the range, with a revised chassis and an all-new engine. Under the hood, you will find a turbocharged 1.0-liter DIG-T 3-cylinder engine with a power of 115 hp and 180 Nm of torque connected to a 6-speed manual transmission.

According to Nissan, the 1.0-liter DIG-T unit is not a modified, more powerful version of the IG-T engine, but a totally different unit developed jointly with Daimler, along with the 1.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that recently debuted in Qashqai.

The new 115 hp DIG-T engine offers a “noticeably higher acceleration” than the IG-T at all revs. The maximum torque is delivered at 1,750 rpm. The result is that car accelerates to 100 km/h in 9.9 seconds, which is a full second faster than the 97 hp version.

Sports models will also have a 10 mm lower height, along with a revised suspension and a faster steering rack to make the Micra more flexible and fun to drive.

The exterior of the new Nissan Micra N-Sport features with glossy black details on the side strips and mirror covers, as well as 17-inch alloy wheels, and a chrome-plated outlet. Inside you will get leather seats with Alcantara, black ceiling, white accents and more.

Sales of the new Nissan Micra are expected to start in February.
