2017 Nissan Micra 4

Spy shots of the next-generation Nissan Micra undergoing road testing have rolled in from southern Europe.

Despite the camoflage, it’s the clear the next sub-subcompact Micra will be a departure from the bulbous current model, no doubt influenced by the Nissan Sway concept car unveiled at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show.

The spied Micra sports a lower, sculpted body, relocates the rear door handles to the upper window frame, and has a grille that won’t leave passers-by saying “d’aww…”

The next-generation Micra is expected to be revealed at the Paris Auto Show in October.

European versions of the Micra will be manufactured at the Renault plant in Flins , France, and will be powered by a range of three- and four cylinder engines.

Nissan is using the joint Renault/Nissan CMF B platform to underpin the new model, architecture that will be found in the next Nissan Juke.

The Nissan Micra is sold overseas and in Canada, but there’s no word yet on whether the upgraded microcar will get the green light in the U.S.
