Small car lovers and cheap skates rejoice! Nissan is planning to make a new model, based on the much-loved Micra, and bring it to the good ol’ U. S. of A. The Micra is this car that’s like Nissan’s bread and butter everywhere BUT America. Nissan cranks them out the way McDonald’s makes burgers, and they seem to be very practical, yet Spartan rides. Cheap too.
Nissan made it official that the automaker is going to add a new, entry-level model to its US lineup as a competitor to the Toyota Yaris and Ford Fiesta. The as yet unnamed car will be based on the next generation Micra, also known as Nissan’s “V-platform”. It will be a hatchback (of course) but there’s also word of two additional models coming along, a four-door sedan and a multipurpose vehicle.
