New Micra Insurance Groups Reduced

Nissan New Micra 1.4 SVE


When it goes on sale in January 2003, the new Nissan Micra will have one of the lowest insurance premiums in its class. Insurance group ratings for the new Micra range have fallen by at least one group compared to the outgoing model, with the entry grade 1.0-litre E rated at 2E. The top of the range 1.4 SVE is rated at 4E.

The Micra range has one of the most comprehensive safety and security packages in its class. Every model in the range comes with standard twin airbags, three 3-point rear seatbelts, ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution and Nissan Brake Assist. Front seat mounted side airbags are standard from S upwards.

To keep the Micra secure, all models feature engine immobiliser, which operates using advanced "rolling code" technology, keyless entry with Superlocking and remote central locking with anti hijack feature which allows the driver’s door to be opened in isolation. Finally, the Micra range features Visible VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) which is visible through the windscreen and is also marked on certain key components for traceability.

Detailed insurance groups are listed below:

1.0 16v 2E        
1.2 16v   2E 2E 3E  
1.4 16v     3E 4E 4E
1.5 dCi 65   2E 2E
