Nissan Motor India on Friday launched the diesel version of its small car Micra, priced between Rs.5.59 lakh and Rs.6.05 lakh. Powered by a 1.5-litre diesel engine, giving 64 PS power, the car will be available in two variants with five speed manual transmission, delivering a fuel economy of 23.08 km a litre.

The car is equipped with multiple ‘first-of-its-kind' features in its segment like intelligent key plus immobilizer, a push-button engine start-stop system and electric foldable mirror. “The success of petrol powered Micra in the domestic market has given us huge confidence to introduce the diesel powered Micra within six months from the petrol version . The diesel powered Micra with its best in class fuel efficiency and unique features have the potential to crave a niche for itself in the overcrowded compact hatchback segment in India,” Nissan Motor India Managing Director and CEO Kiminobu Tokuyama told journalists here.
