Montreal 2014: Subcompact segment grows with all-new 2015 Nissan Micra

As reported last week, the Nissan Micra is back in Canada. The new Japanese subcompact officially made its debut yesterday at the 2014 Montreal Auto Show.

"Micra will truly be a car for every Canadian," said Christian Meunier, President, Nissan Canada Inc. "It's been specifically designed for this market and has been thoroughly tested right here in Montreal in driving conditions Canadians typically face. It's ready for Canada. And we think Canada is ready for Micra."

The 2015 Nissan Micra will arrive at Canadian dealers this April in three trim levels: S, SV, and SR. All will feature a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine that produces 109 horsepower through a standard 5-speed manual gearbox or a 4-speed automatic.

Despite its subcompact footprint, the 2015 Nissan Micra rides on 15'' or 16'' wheels -- sizes that are widely available as snow tires. Depending on the model you select, the list of options may include a rearview camera, heated mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 4.3'' audio interface capable of displaying album art.

Prices and fuel economy ratings will be revealed at a later date.
