With costs in many areas of the UK automotive market on the increase, Nissan has claimed that it is "bucking the trend" by reducing the price of its entire Micra range.
The manufacturer’s entry-level Initia model has been reduced in price by £1,500, while the Spirita has been made £1,200 cheaper and the Micra Sport has had £750 shaved off its price.
Nissan’s Sport SR, which is available in three-door form, with a 1.6-litre engine, is now available at a £300 reduction, as is the Active Luxury model.
Some customers may expect the specifications of these cars to have received "the scissor treatment", according to Nissan, but it insists that this is not the case, with all equipment levels on all grades untouched.
The Initia still comes with driver, passenger and side airbags, ABS, full body-coloured front and rear bumpers and active front headrests, while the Spirita keeps its air conditioning with pollen filter, integrated drive computer and leather steering wheel.
Sports-style seats and bumpers, 16-inch alloy wheels and dark-tinted headlamps characterise the Sport model, while the Sport SR features climate control, auto lighting, rain-sensing wipers and exhaust tailpipe finisher.
Nissan’s Active Luxury starts from the same price as the Sport SR and boasts leather and heated front seats, metallic paintwork, aluminium look pedals and a sports gear lever.
