Unveiling the Nissan Micra
X-shift, Guillaume Sicard, President - Nissan India Operations said, “The
demand for automatic cars has risen to over 3.5pc in the last two years from
less than 1pc in FY12. Nissan is a pioneer when it comes to Xtronic CVT
Technology and with the introduction of the XL grade in our CVT range; we aim
to make this technology more accessible to our buyers.”
The New Micra CVT Automatic XL
variant comes equipped with Nissan’s efficient Xtronic CVT automatic gearbox,
making Micra the first, and the only, car in its segment to sport one. Xtronic
CVT Technology delivers an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 19.34kmpl in the
Micra, which is better than any automatic hatchback in its class. It is also
more fun to drive with no shift shock during acceleration compared to
conventional automatic transmissions.
Xtronic CVT transmission comes
with Adaptive Shift Control (ASC) with three modes for Sporty, Normal and
Economy oriented driving. The technology predicts driver’s requirements and
delivers the optimum shift pattern to achieve both fuel economy and
drivability. The ‘Sport’ mode, which can be activated via a button on the shift
lever, gives an extra boost to the car’s performance.
The new XL CVT variant comes
with all features of the XL variant plus standard Antilock Braking System
(ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA).
Additions to the interior include a new premium steering wheel and also a
convenient driver’s arm rest.
