Japanese auto maker Nissan has rolled out new variants of its hatchback Micra in India in a bid to increase its sales in the country.
The new Micra X-Shift, the model based on the XL variant of the hatchback, comes paired to CVT gearbox and only 750 units of the model will be available. The new Micra X-Shift gets power from the same 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol engine that is tuned to generate 75PS of power and 104 Nm of torque.
As for styling, the new Micra X-Shift features matte black roof and side decals at the bottom of the car. There is also chrome tip exhaust and reverse parking sensors. Inside the cabin, new Micra features new 3-spoke steering wheel like the one in Nissan Sunny, LED scuff plates and infotainment system with Bluetooth, AUX and USB connectivity.
Nissan Micra X-Shift has been priced at ₹6.4 lakh (ex-Showroom, New Delhi).
"The demand for automatic cars has risen to over 3.5% in the last two years from less than 1% in FY12. Nissan is a pioneer when it comes to Xtronic CVT Technology and with the introduction of the XL grade in our CVT range; we aim to make this technology more accessible to our buyers," NDTV Auto quoted Guillaume Sicard, President - Nissan India Operations.
