Today people were able to post up reviews of the micra. There are several out there already. Most are pretty positive actually. Funny thing is no one complained of down on power that I read. While several have actually called it spunky. I guess the 100lb weight savings from a note does wonders for the HR16DE. Though I am still shocked that this micra is listed as a 2300lb curb weight.

I am guessing many that reviewed the Note were driving the CVT. CVT's always feel like the vehicle is dragging an anchor.

I am very jealous of you Canadians. I would have a micra on order right now if it were available in the US. It would be bye bye Versa and hello Micra. And I would mod the crap out of it too LOL.

What's really crazy is Nissan didn't put CVT s in them, they're 4sp autos!
Also looks like can't get manual and air together, so far according to website www.nissan.ca
This is confusing

So far I have driven a sentra, rogue and altima coupe with CVT. I am in no way a cvt basher. They serve their purpose. But all felt the same, sluggish and slow to respond me. The sentra with smaller engine being the worst. Nissan should ad paddle shifters to the cvt. I think that would help.

What is even crazier is everyone is praising nissan for using a 4at and are saying it fits the car well. I configured an sv manual that had ac the other day. Not sure if that changed.

Not saying you are, just saying that you will be surprised at how quickly the CVT in the Note responds to inputs and it's a very far cry from the sluggish unit in the Altima as i had to use an 2011 Altima as a rental car for a week and i know what you are talking about as far as a bad CVT goes cause the unit in the altima felt like a slug trying to get it up to speed....the CVT in the Note, however....light years better in every way

An SV manual would be good news, rescuing the Micra from fail status IMO. The pdf spec sheet download isn't clear indicating an SV manual.
I need to compare more cvts. My only experience is our old 09 Alty 2.5 S CVT. It was adequate. Could quickly select simulated fourth gear if required. Throttle/pedal response and calibration should've been sharper though.
I think electronic throttle calibration accounts for some variation in seat of the pants spunky factor. I remember late eighties and nineties GM fwd v6s would repeatedly jump and squawk off the line, but didn't seen to have the lungs to really scream after one full second accelerating...except the 3800, good engine tranny combo.
I'm curious if the Note CVT with new additional planetary gear set helps launch it better.
And the same with Micra 4at.
And is it easily confused merging on highway, where often I accelerate/decel/accel etc? That's when I find manual or selectable CVT handiest.
