How It Looks - Interior

The new Micra's interior styling complements the exterior perfectly with design-led features such as the curvaceous dashboard which houses ivory coloured circular controls for the climate control air conditioning and audio controls. The interior door handles and door panel styling are both unique and functional. Even the circular swiveling interior light makes a bold design statement.
