Nissan Micra Active Rs 3.5 lakh price paves way for Datsun K2 budget small car
Nissan India has very judiciously introduced a budget line hatchback. Nissan Micra Active is certainly here to inculcate the practice of buying a car that’s cost effective. This is important for the brand considering they introduce their Datsun brand here in mid July. Introducing an affordable Datsun K2 in less than a fortnight would but obviously stop 2013 Micra sales dead on it’s track.
Nissan Micra active with it’s toned down features is the choicest rendition to avoid such a fiasco. If you peep in, you’ll see the noticeable differences. The headlights are a give away and misses out on LED tail lights. The bumper design is different, and the alloys have been given a miss. Chrome on the interior has been left out, and there are no Nissan Micra Active diesel variants.
The economic hatchback embodies Nissan’s promise of quality, fuel efficiency, and styling through design & feature optimization. Great for a 1st time car buyers, power comes from a 1.2-litre petrol engine that gives 68PS at 5000rpm, and 104Nm at 4000rpm. Performance tuning and vehicle weight reduction by about 30 kilos, pegs fuel Efficiency at 19.49 kmpl( not by ARAI). Available variants include Nissan Micra Active XE, XL, XV and XV safety pack.
