Nissan Canada previously announced that its 2015 Micra will be Canada's lowest priced new car, with a base MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $9,998.
Now the company has released pricing for the full Micra lineup, which is said to include the lowest cost of entry for several desirable features such as Bluetooth, rear view monitor, cruise control, air conditioning and automatic transmission.
"In the highly competitive entry-level segment, customers are looking for an array of options, in addition to the expected demands for fuel economy, style and safety," said Christian Meunier, president of Nissan Canada.
The Micra, which is not sold in the United States, goes on sale in Canada this spring. It will be available in three trim levels – the Micra S, SV and SR – and eight models.
Buyers will have a choice of either a five-speed manual transmission, or a four-speed automatic, coupled with 1.6-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine with dual fuel injection and Twin CVTC.
Next up the price ladder from the base, $9.998 model S is the Micra S 4AT, which adds automatic transmission, air conditioning and cruise control, all at the most affordable prices in Canada.
The SV trim level includes the most affordable Bluetooth and front and rear power windows offered in Canada. Other standard features include body coloured door handles, heated power outside mirrors, steering wheel controls, power door locks with remote keyless entry, six-way driver’s seat and cargo cover.
Its pricing starts at $13,698, with an automatic transmission available for another $1,000. An available $500 Convenience Package adds a 4.3-inch audio display with USB interface and iPod connectivity, as well as Nissan’s innovative RearView monitor system – a surprising feature in the entry-level segment, available at the lowest price in Canada.
The Micra SR includes everything available on the SV with Convenience Package, plus added appearance features such as 16-inch machined/black-painted alloy wheels, fog lights, chrome lower grille finisher, sport headlights and taillights, leather-wrapped steering wheel and side sill spoilers.
The fully-loaded Micra SR has a starting price of $15,748, with an automatic transmission adding another $1,000.
