Nissan Micra based sedan(V-platform)caught testing

Recommended Posts

She's a Real break from the Micra's Round & round styling, eminent from its Bonnet, Grille & Rear Door design.

But the boot seems to be Mix of Manza & Dzire, as it's long & Over-hanging like of Manza's & is Bangle-design cued like Dzire's.

Lets see, how it'll look w/o these covers !

Till then Fingers Crossed..

rear overhang looks a bit longer, maybe due to excessive covering to hide the real design. Looks good to me.. but a little like the prev generation honda city.

The Chinese auto website Autohome is reporting the pics of the final product that is expected to international markets early next year. And by the looks of things we are really impressed.

Although Nissan says that this is not a Micra sedan, the interiors are such a giveaway. The two differences we can spot are the square AC vents on the dash and twin dials (instead of one large and one small one) behind the steering wheel. Thankfully, Nissan has provided what looks like a AC vent between the front seats for the rear passengers.

The exterior of the car is sort of a mash up of the Altima and the Teana. Nothing concrete can be said about the engine specs but we expect it to be powered by 1.6L petrol engine to producing round about 100 to 115 horses and the 1.5-liter diesel engine coaxing out 70bhp or so.

There are some websites reporting dimensions of the car

What an Awesome looking car it is..

Nissan is successful in hiding the Over-Curvaceous & bulbulous curves of Micra onto which she's based.

IMO, Its the best looking Hatchback based sedan after ANHC & Linea.

Still the proportions could have been better. It still seems to be a car clearly based on hatch while seeing ANHC, Linea, Jetta, Vento, etc. If you dont see Polo or Golf, you cant say that Jetta & Vento are based on respective hatches though looks same from the front.

More pics will clear the story.

The lights especially of this could have been a lot sharper rather bulbous. Still doesnt looks that bad but definately looks a car clearly made from hatch but which hatch will be a question as it looks different from Micra.

Nissan's done a good job; but I'd like the side profile to see how 'neatly' they have integrated the boot with the rest of the car, front looks quiet good and mature, nice grill and chrome surround to it. Rear treament can look better with a little splashes of chrome above the number plate.

The rear end design in my opinion is similar to what maruti has done to DZire.

Save for the chrome accent in Dzire boot, Swooping tail lamp for a Sedan; and the high boot line looks similar to my eyes..
