Default 2017 Nissan Micra

Quite a lot of visual Renault DNA IMO, but still a massive step forward from the current developing market penalty box...

I find it stunning. The offer in this segment is very very aged so i think this will be an instant winner as long as they don't go nuts with the price.

Quite French (which will make swizzle puke and go on a raged rant) but i absolutely LOVE it! Such a MASSIVE improvement over the crappy outgoing generation. This has gone from competing with the likes of the Mitsubishi Mirage/Space Star & Ford KA+ to the ranks of Ford Fiesta, Renault Clio and VW Polo! Let's hope it drives as good

I like this lots too. For a Nissan, it looks very good.

Hopefully it makes it on the boat to Australia. But I'm sure Nissan Australia (who are beyond hopeless) already have their excuses ready.

Best use of the weird Nissan grill yet; and an overall good looking product. It hurt to say that.

Revolting. It's trying too hard to be stylish which is apparently how the Japanese think they should do it. The name of the car is misspelled. It's "Micrap".

The strange body line over the headlights that curves down into the door and then up to the tail is off putting. The C pillar treatment Nissan seems to love so much is at it nadir here. Terrible in every way.

Ok - that's worthy of a golf clap. Well done. I actually laughed out loud.

I think the think that I like about the design is the absence of the weird 'V' headlights. It works better w/ the weird V grill.

Nissan's strange styling cues actually work really shockingly well here.

Pity they're not bringing it to the States.

I don't even want to imagine the sedan version of this which will be a Versa in the US. This can't end well, given how "hatchback only" this looks.
