nissan micra to cost 9998 in canada

At the Canadian International Auto Show, Nissan announced that the new Micra, slated for Canada only, would slot in just under $10,000, making it the cheapest new car on sale in Canada. Compared to world markets, the Micra has some Canadian-only features, like an upgraded HVAC system and split-folding rear seat (to carry hockey bags and other large parcels).

    I have absolutely no idea why, but this car seems really appealing to me. It's probably my cheapskate side talking. I know a lot of people would prefer to buy a used car at this price point. But I've had bad experiences doing that - I much prefer to buy new and keep for the long haul. I can do all the maintenance correctly and keep it looking good inside and out. This car looks perfect as a short range commuter or about town runabout. Or a second or third family car. The exterior design is appealing, it has all the features I "need", and the price is great. Even at $12k or whatever they're going to charge to add on some A/C and possibly cruise, I'd be interested. C'mon Nissan, bring it to the US! Us Gen-Yer's need a cheap car to go with our depressing paychecks!

    Add a/c & auto & tech pkg won't be much diff monthly Sentra lease. Especially if Micra hot and Sentra not. I'm gunning on some cute-me-up dealer add-ons to help Micra drive away.

    Savings are in the transmissions, late twentieth 5-spud or 4-slush. Rear drums not found on the Accent. Video looks like Sherbourne Common waterpark round the back of the filtration beside Corus/George Brown. I'd hold off for CVT trans. It'll be along sooner if Micra takes off. The 4-speed is obviously the early producion gamble. Remember it was available early on the Versa. Can't think production will be around much longer? I'd like to see a rear disc option on the SR.

    Love the fact that it comes with the instrument cluster in front of the driver and not offset like the Yaris. I see for this year Toyota is finally seeing straight (as it were) on that matter. I think this car could work here in Canada for sure. Might be a winner for Nissan.
