Nissan launches new three-cylinder 1.0-liter Micra unit

Nissan has unveiled a new entry-level version of the Micra – fitted with a 1.0-liter engine, which develops 71ps. The new unit joins the current line-up, which includes the 90ps 0.9-liter turbo and 90ps 1.5-liter dCi turbodiesel.

Naturally aspirated, the engine is linked to a five-speed manual transmission. This powertrain results in a fuel economy of 4.6l/100km and CO2 emissions of 103g/km when running on 15 or 16-inch wheels.

However, to reach 100km/h the 1.0-liter Micra will take 16.4 seconds. While the 0.9-liter turbo gasoline alternative will get there four seconds quicker, as well as boasting greater fuel-efficiency.

As customers continue to buy into the engine downsizing trend, Nissan has claimed that the three-cylinder unit could account for 23% of orders across Europe by March next year.
