I been reading about this since last night. I like the micra and I'm glad it's back. Even though I can't get it here in the states. Supposedly the canada models will come with heated mirrors and some other Canadian only goodies. Also heard coming with the hr16de which would make it the highest displacement micra available in the world.

I wish they would bring the Nismo S version with the 116hp 1.5l engine. Now I bet that is a fun car to toss around. Plus has a kick ass interior. Info here 2013 Nissan March Nismo and Nismo S announced

2015 Micra price update

2015 Nissan Micra To Start At $9,998 In Canada - Autos.ca

Any new car sold in Canada under $10k [not including end of year clearout incentives] sure grabs my attention

Also "Those buying the Micra will also have access to a parts interchangeability program very similar to that used by the Scion brand."

I'll take mine with no options except A/C and rear spoiler, then throw my 17s on.

Nothing mentioned yet about options list for $9998

Yes will be definately worth a look in a couple of years after they've worked out the kinks and some aftermarket base is created.

I've still got a good 3-4 years on my V.

I would probably buy one of these if I was able to get it into the US. It has more character than my Versa. Same engine but is 400lbs lighter. Should make it quite a bit peppier. Plus I would love to own a car not available in the US. Something about being the only one makes it all the more appealing to me.

I like the SR version but even the normal version with the customized mirrors, handles, and stripes looks good. Sorta mini or fiat kind of way.



I think this image shows the SR version with the additional customizations. I absolutely love it. I want one.

Heading to the Auto Show tonight in Toronto.

I will snap pics of the Micra and post them up for you Rob.
It will be interesting to see the size comparison in real life

Drove by dealership with a Micra outside this morning. Had hubcaps so it might be base model w stick. Will check it out when I go that way again.

I have been looking around over on the micra forums. I have seen some pics of the base model. It is the cheapest of the cheap. Makes my 09 1.6 look like a lexus LOL. But I still love the little cars and wish I could buy one. I did notice after the crazy destination fee and whatever else that these cheap cars aren't really that cheap. I priced one out the way I would want it and I think it came to like $16k!

I should add that the SR model does look much better. Also just a few quick touches and part swaps from the NOTE and I think the micra would be perfect.
