Nissan has launched a media campaign for its upcoming Micra diesel which will launch before Christmas this year.
Nissan dealers across the country have already begun taking bookings for the Micra diesel even though final prices haven’t been revealed. The diesel Micra is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre diesel engine and is being claimed by Nissan to deliver an overall mileage of over 23kmpl. The car’s light weight coupled with this high torque diesel engine will give the Micra a spirited drive while being light on the wallet.
While the Micra hasn’t yet set the sales charts on fire, the diesel engine variant could change that and lead to a sales spurt for the Japanese carmaker. Nissan would do well to price the Micra diesel competitively alongside the Figo diesel which would be one of its main competitors.
