All-new Nissan March arrives in the UK, from RM66k

The all-new Nissan March has been launched in the United Kingdom (known as the Micra there), and to mark its debut, the carmaker has released a sizeable gallery showcasing the fifth-generation model.

For the UK market, the March will be available in five trim levels – Visia, Visia+, Acenta, N-Connecta and Tekna. Three engines, two petrol and one diesel, will be available at first, all mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Nissan says other engines and an automatic transmission will be later be introduced during the life cycle of the model.

On the oil burning front, a 1.5 litre turbodiesel four-cylinder engine outputs 90 hp and 220 Nm while offering a claimed fuel consumption of just 3.2 l/100 km and 85 g/km of CO2 emissions. The first of the two petrol mills include a 0.9 litre turbocharged three-cylinder (90 hp/140 Nm) with the other offering being a 1.0 litre naturally-aspirated three-pot (71 hp/95 Nm).

According to Nissan, the blown petrol unit will return a fuel consumption rating of 4.4 l/100 km and emits just 99 g/km of CO2. As for the 1.0 litre unit, Nissan has yet to confirm its official fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures.

Prices start at 11,995 pounds (RM66,274) for the entry-level Visia with the 71 hp 1.0 litre petrol engine, with the range-topping Tekna fitted with the 90 hp turbodiesel retailing at 18,765 pounds (RM103,663).

Standard equipment on the March include six airbags, Lane Departure Warning and Intelligent Lane Intervention, Intelligent Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection, two-tone soft touch materials for the interior, halogen headlights (LED units optional) and rear roof spoiler.

Buyers also get to choose from ten body colours – Ivory, Solid White, Platinum Silver, Echo Grey, Enigma Black, Energy Orange, Power Blue, Pulse Green, Passion Red and Glaze White – where all but the first demands a premium. Nissan also notes that Energy Orange, Pulse Green and Passion Red are colours that are unique to the new March.

Tempting little car, isn’t it? Well, Thailand is set to be one of the markets the new March will debut in, where it will be sold as an eco car. This was disclosed by Nissan Motor Thailand’s marketing VP Sureethip La-Ongthong Chomthongdee in an earlier report. Show of hands, how many of you would like the new March (or Note) to be introduced in Malaysia?

    11,995 pounds can be likened to RM11,995 in Malaysia. One should not convert.

    Can you imagine buying a good Japanese car for RM11,995 ringgit?

    Where is the promise to reduce car prices by 30%? Have we Malaysians been cheated? Oh btw, I bought a brand new Nissan March in the 1986 for RM15k.

    And in the 1986, the Nissan March was about 8000 pounds. In 20 years, it has gone up 50% in the UK to 11,995 pounds.

    This car blends seamlessly with any landscapes or environment whether its on the move or static. I assume that the designer must have a good knowledge on the Golden Ratio. I give full 5-star and two thumbs up to the designer. Well done
