THE launch range of the all-new Nissan Micra has been completed with the arrival of the 1.0-litre 71bhp entry-level model.
It is the last of three launch engines to go on sale and is expected to account for approximately 20 per cent of sales.
The three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine is linked to a five-speed manual transmission which Nissan claim will return a combined cycle fuel economy of 61mpg and CO2emissions of 103g/km when running on 15 or 16-inch wheels.
The new 1.0-litre engine joins the 0.9-litre 90bhp three-cylinder turbo petrol and the 1.5-litre 90bhp four-cylinder diesel, which went on sale earlier this year.
The latest Micra has been conceived, designed and engineered with European customers' requirements in mind and is built in France at the same factory as Renault uses for the Clio.
The new Micra is available with a range of personalisation options, allowing owners to modify the exterior and interior with components in a variety of contemporary colours.
Prices range from £11,995 to £14,145 depending on specification.
