Canada’s affinity for small cars may result in it getting yet another exclusive product that won’t be offered to Americans. In addition to the Toyota Echo hatchback, Acura EL and Mercedes-Benz B-Class, the Nissan Micra may be sold in Canada.
A report by AutoGuide claims that Canadian dealers have been presented with the Nissan Micra alongside the revised Rogue. Powered by a 1.2L supercharged engine making 97 horsepower, the diminutive hatchback would compete against the Mitsubishi Mirage and Chevrolet Spark in the nascent A-segment space. But America won’t be getting it, according to Nissan sources. The Versa is considered small enough for American buyers, though evidently Canadians are more willing to consider a smaller vehicle.
