The much anticipated Nissan Micra Diesel has been launched and is available in two variants XV and XV Premium which are distinguished by a couple of features. The XV is priced at Rs.5.58 Lakh while the XV Premium owing to the exceptional features is priced at Rs.6.04 Lakh, bot Ex-Showroom Delhi. We expect an on-road price to be between Rs. 6 and Rs. 7 Lakhs which is quite competitive.
Both the variants are propelled by the same 1.5 Litre CRDI diesel engine pumping out 63BHP @ 4,000rpm of peak power and 160 Nm @ 2,000rpm of peak torque and is offered with a 5-Speed gearbox.
Satoshi Matsutomi, vice president, product planning, Nissan Motor India said, “Nissan is offering the diesel engine in the Micra only in India. We will wait for customer feedback before we decide on anything else.” Dinesh Jain of Hover Automotive India further added, “We have had an overwhelming response to the Micra, and at present we have bookings for about 8,000 cars.”
