Nissan Micra Active – Street Smart Sensation
The flashy, out of the box styling of the Micra Active makes it stand out in a sea of hatchbacks on sale
If you are looking for a hatchback which is compact, feature-loaded and looks distinct from the herd of affordable small cars, the Nissan Micra Active should make the cut. Moreover, Nissan recently launched the updated 2018 Micra Active in the country with dual front airbags and rear parking sensors as standard.
Let’s take a closer look at what makes the Micra Active a great buy in its segment.
A global product
The Nissan Micra Active is by no means a local product. The fit and finish, structure strength, use of materials and safety parameters are all of global standards. Since, Nissan India also exports the hatchback to other markets around the world, the features are more or less shared with the India-spec version. The European-styled hatchback was first launched in India in 2013.
Best of both the worlds - Stylish and feature-rich
The Japanese automaker has pooled in all its global resources to give the Micra Active a timeless design. The curvaceous styling with ovular headlamps has a retro feel to it. The sharp creases along with the subtle contours on the bonnet and Nissan’s signature ‘V’ grille give it a perfect family car look that appeals to everyone.
On the inside, the 2018 Nissan Micra Active gets a 6.2-inch infotainment system, turn indicators on the ORVMs and rear parking sensors. The feature list goes on. It is equipped with front and rear power windows, internally adjustable IRVM, remote keyless entry, steering-mounted controls with Bluetooth connectivity, height adjustable driver seat and adjustable rear seat headrest. All this makes the car a breeze to live with on a daily basis.
In terms of tech, the Nissanconnect app takes your car owning experience to an all new level. It helps you keep a complete track of your vehicle by notifying about service bookings and reminders, finding nearby fuel stations, service centers, etc. It also helps you track your car’s exact location and its whereabouts in the last 15-minutes, among others. Moreover, it also notifies you in case of impacts, towing, harsh braking, over-acceleration and sharp turns ahead. It also gives you a smart-drive score based on your driving style.
While the design and the feature list is enough to blow you away, the Micra is also loaded with a host of safety features as well. It gets standard dual airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, driver seat belt warning indicator, speed warning indicator, rear parking sensor, speed-sensing auto door locks and central door locking. All of this technology works quietly in the background to ensure the safety of the people on board.
Reliable car with great warranty on offer
The Micra’s 5-year/one lakh kilometre warranty package shows Nissan’s confidence in its products.
Given the cool styling, the long list of features and unmatched warranty, the 2018 Nissan Micra is sure to give the competition a run for its money.
