They have combined bold design with a host of sector-first technologies and trademark Nissan innovation’s, the all-new note, new Micra and the latest Juke line-up, now form the most comprehensive, diverse and exciting B-segment range on the market.
The all-new Note is at the heart of Nissan’s new B-segment line-up. Designed and engineered for the European market, it has a bold design, break through sector-first technologies, exceptional practicality and unrivaled value for money, and will compete head on with the Fiesta and Polo.
The new Note that seamlessly connects design and technology, is built in Europe at Nissan’s Sunderland plant in the UK and brings a number of innovative premium features to the small car market for the first time. It’s Safety Shield – links three safety systems to create a comprehensive protection and driver assistance package, it has an advanced around view monitor which gives a 360 birds eye view when parking, which sets the benchmark for accessible premium technology.
The new Micra, which joins the Note has over 30 years of history and sales of over six million units to date, the Micra still remains one of Nissan’s most recognizable and popular cars around the world.
The Micra which has been substantially updated with a host of design and engineering improvements. The exterior has been given a new front and rear design and a complete revamp has been given to its cabin, featuring higher quality materials.
In a typical Nissan style, the new Micra also benefits from a number of new innovations and design touches, designed specifically to make life in a Micra easier and more enjoyable. Nissan’s latest Connect navigation and communication centre joins the range, while a new and expanded set of personalization options gives the buyers the opportunity to create their perfect Micra.
Nissan’s drive to deliver advanced engineering to all its B-segment offerings is further demonstrated by the arrival of a new Juke diesel.

A significant increase in torque (up from 240Nm to 260Nm) and improved turbo response at low engine speeds delivers improved flexibility and performance. With lowered CO2 emissions of just 109g/km and a 12.5% improvement in fuel economy, the Juke represents an even more compelling package for small car buyers looking to stand out from the crowd.
