Looking for a city-friendly smart hatchback? The 2018 Nissan Micra is the ideal choice as it ticks all the right boxes to be your smart ride with its connected and intelligent features. Check out the five features below that take the 2018 Micra ahead of its rivals.
Smooth shifts: X-tronic CVT Automatic
The Nissan Micra comes with an advanced X-tronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) automatic which is far superior to the crude AMT (automated-manual transmission) its rivals offer. CVTs work smoothly unlike the jerky AMT, where gear changes can be felt in the form of uncomfortable head nods. The X-Tronic CVT also comes with an overdrive function that imparts a pleasant surge in acceleration. Its overdrive function can be activated with the press of a button on the gear knob. So, with the new Micra, you don’t have to worry about traffic as the CVT makes your drive smoother and relaxed.

The unit also packs Bluetooth phone integration and can be operated from the convenience of the steering-mounted audio controls. Moreover, the infotainment system doubles up as a display for the reverse parking camera, which is further assisted by rear parking sensors for utmost surety and safety while parking.
Other convenience features include auto headlamps and rain-sensing wipers, keyless entry with Intelligent-key, push-button engine start-stop and auto climate control. It also packs lead-me-to-car functionality, which automatically turns on the headlamps to help you locate your car easily wherever it is parked.
NissanConnect, part of Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility solutions, is the Japanese automaker’s telematic services that offers over 50 services such as live tracking, service bookings and history, locating your car, trip analysis, towing alert, speeding alert, etc., all through the convenience of a smartphone app. Nissan is the only automaker that offers factory-fitted telematics control unit (TCU) with an industry-first 3 years of free subscription.
The Nissan Micra’s eye-catching design makes it stand out from the crowd. Nissan’s signature V-shaped grille and the Micra’s boomerang-shaped headlamps, which offer follow-me-home function, impart a premium yet aggressive look. The big 15-inch multi-spoke diamond-shaped alloys add a dash of flamboyance along with the electronically foldable and adjustable ORVMs with turn signals.
At the rear, the Micra flaunts a fancy spoiler, high-mounted LED stop lamp and tail lamps. The nicely sculpted rear bumper, chunky boot lid handle and the large rear windscreen add a unique character to the hatchback.
