IT promises to be one of the trendiest new cars of 2017, but the edgy new Nissan Micra will cost considerably more than the outgoing, curvaceous original when it arrives in dealerships next year.
Prices have now been announced by Nissan ahead of the car's launch with the entry-level Visia model costing Â£11,995, while customers opting for the all-singing, all-dancing top of the range Tekna versions can expect to pay from Â£17,295.
And with an extensive range of personalisation options, the price of putting one on your drive could go even higher.
By comparison, run-out versions of the 2016 Micra are currently available from £7,995 rising to £13,455.
However, buyers of the all-new Micra can expect a lot more for their money in terms of technology and safety features - as well as trendy, altogether sharper styling.
Five grade levels will be available - Visia, Visia+, Acenta, N-Connecta and Tekna - with one of the most popular versions expected to be the 0.9 litre, three-cylinder, petrol turbo Acenta model which sits at the heart of the range, priced at Â£14,995.
Full range pricing, as well as specifications and options for the fifth generation model will be announced by Nissan in mid-December when dealers will open their order books ahead of next year's launch.
At launch, the New Micra will be offered with the 0.9-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine or a 1.5-litre diesel, both developing 90hp. A naturally aspirated 73hp 1.0-litre petrol engine will join the range soon after.
An impressive range of options will include keyless entry with engine start/stop button, heated front seats and a first-of-its-kind Bose sound system with speakers built into the driver's seat headrest for an immersive listening experience.
Buyers will also be able to further personalise the new Micra with a range of exterior and interior packs including contrasting-colour cabin and body features, leather trim, 17-inch alloys with colour detailing and body decals.
