Nissan Takes Command Of The Small Car Market

Nissan Takes Command Of The Small Car MarketToday marks the start of the latest Nissan Live event, showcasing the new Note, new Micra and the Juke complete with an enhanced diesel engine.

All three models combine sector-first technologies, bold design and technical innovation to create a diverse range that has the B-segment covered.

Leading the new line-up is the all-new Note. Redesigned from the ground up, the Note has been engineered to meet the unique demands of the European market, and sets new standards for sector-first technology, practicality, design and value for money. Built at Nissan's Sunderland plant in the UK, the new Note introduces a range of innovative premium features to the sector.

These include the Nissan Safety Shield - linking three safety systems to create a comprehensive driver assistance package - and the acclaimed Around View Monitor that provides drivers with a remarkable 360-degree bird's eye view of the car's surroundings.

Joining the all-new Note in Nissan's innovative small car line-up is the new Micra, which benefits from a substantial design and technology update.

The backbone of Nissan's small car range for over 30 years, the latest version of the Micra features a bold new design at the front and rear, and benefits from a completely revamped cabin. Customers will also be able to personalise their Micra as never before thanks to a range of design and styling options.

In true Nissan fashion, the Micra also introduces exciting and useful in-car technology in the form of the latest-generation NissanConnect navigation and communication system complete with GoogleTM functionality.

Completing Nissan's fully updated small car range is a new Juke diesel. Featuring Stop/Start idle system as standard, the new engine has been developed by Alliance partner Renault, and delivers more torque (+20Nm), lower emissions and significantly improved refinement. Fuel economy has also been improved by 12 per cent, making it one of the best all-round packages in the sector.
