Know Your Micra Model

This little car has a long history with the first model being produced in 1982. While the previous models of the Micra may have been good, the Micra’s unique and recognizable bubble shape was introduced in the third generation from 2002-2007.

The third generation’s unique shape drew from the Nissan mm.e concept car that had wowed at the Frankfurt Motor Show the year before. The Micra 2004 model was updated with the addition of clear front indicator lamps, new wheel covers, new colouring options as well as improved audio systems. Not resting on their laurels, Nissan updated the Micra again in 2005, bringing out, amongst others, a newly designed grille, new bumpers, improved audio and trim options as well as several engine modifications. Two years later the Micra 2007 was facelifted with a range of cosmetic tweaks, tech upgrades and sport bumpers and spoilers on all models except the base.

The current generation of Mirca is the fourth generation, and was launched in 2010. From the 2010 and even the 2013 Micra model onwards, the Micra received more upgrades both in refinement and tech options, and is today one of the most affordable and inexpensive vehicles to run in South Africa.

Let’s take a more detailed look at the different generations of Nissan Micra Hatchbacks manufactured by Nissan. Please note however that not all generations of Micra were available in South Africa, but this is indicated where applicable.

1st Generation Nissan Micra (Not Available in SA)
1982–1992

The very first Micra was introduced to the world in 1982 as a Japanese exclusive which was intended as a replacement for the popular but aging Nissan Cherry. However, due to its immediate popularity with young and first-time drivers because of its competitive pricing point it was introduced into the European market in June 1983 and into Canada it went on sale for the 1985 model year. This first-generation Micra was known for its exceptionally low fuel consumption, which was made possible by a newly developed Nissan engine, and this further endeared it to its young but soon to be upwardly mobile young drivers.

In 1985 the first-generation Nissan Micra received its first facelift, although be it a minor one, and it was relaunched in June 1995. In Japan, there were once again an exclusive version of the Micra launched, which included an ambitious addition of a turbocharger to the Micra’s small but reliable 1.0 L engine.

1989 saw a second, and this time more obvious facelift, that included a new style of deeper bumpers, the addition of a new front grille, various cabin interior improvements and redesigns, and a change in the look of the Micra’s headlights. It was this version of the first generation Micra that was available for sale until the second generation Micra was introduced.

Did You Know? The body style of the first generation Micra was originally going to be used by Fiat in Italy. However, Fiat opted to go for the Uno design instead. This gave Nissan the opportunity to use an already existing design, which in turn helped them to minimise costs.

3rd Generation Nissan Micra (First SA Model)
2002–2010

This is the Nissan Micra that first launched in South Africa, which is why it is sometimes erroneously called the first-generation Micra in South Africa. It was first launched in Japan in 2002, and was developed with input from Renault. This new version of the Micra had a longer wheelbase than previous models and for the first time the now synonymous shape of the Micra was seen. This shape also now included the headlamps that extended to the wing-tops that has become the signature look of all Micra’s since.

In 2004 the Micra was updated to include a massive amount of new safety and luxury features. It was also made available in 7 new colours for the first time, but it was not until late 2007 that the third-generation Nissan Micra received its final cosmetic tweaks, which included a slightly new look to the headlights, new chrome housings for the indicators, a new seat fabric design, improved dashboard features, bluetooth connectivity, and sport bumpers and spoilers.

Did You Know? The popularity of the third-generation Nissan Micra hit a high in 2009 when nearly 122,000 units were sold worldwide.

During the 2011 vehicle sales year the Nissan Micra received its first and only facelift for this current generation. These cosmetic and feature changes included a slight change to the front of the Micra, as well as the introduction of a new colour option. These changes were well received in South Africa, and further pushed positive sales growth of this specific Micra generation. Because of this, many of the used Micra cars for sale in South Africa of of this current fourth-generation of Micra.

Did You Know? This generation of Nissan Micra’s is very popular as a used vehicle thanks to its exceptional fuel consumption figures. These figures of 6.2 L/100 km* (for the 1.2l Visia+) and 7.56 L/100 km* (for the 1.5l Tekna) are due in part to the Micra’s Nissan engines, but also because this generation of Micra has a drag coefficient of just 0.32.
