The all-new Nissan Micra (March)

2016 Paris Motor Show: New Nissan Micra to feature lineup of downsized engines

On September 29, Nissan Motor Company unveiled its all-new Micra (the March, in Japan) at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

Nissan has downsized the engines for this new model. The smallest engine is a 0.9-liter inline three-cylinder HR09DET gasoline turbo unit that generates 90hp of maximum output and 14.3kgm of maximum torque. The maximum torque ramps up to 15.3kgm when the engine is overboosted.

In addition, a 1.0-liter inline three-cylinder BR10DE naturally aspirated gasoline engine will be added later on to the lineup, generating 73hp of maximum output and 9.7kgm of maximum torque.

The new Micra lineup also features a diesel engine, which is highly popular in Europe. The 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder K9K diesel system offers 90hp of maximum output as well as plenty of torque of up to 22.4kgm.

The transmission for the European model is a five-speed manual. Nissan said, “This highly efficient lineup of engines represents further advancements toward the realization of Nissan Intelligent Power.”
