Nissan Australian has today confirmed that the new 2011 Nissan Micra will be in Nissan dealerships across Australia towards the end of this year.

Nissan’s all-new “Global Compact Car” will be seen for the first time at the Geneva Motorshow next months and sources are suggesting that it’s more of an evolution on the current design than a revolution.

CarAdvice will be at Geneva to bring you exclusive pictures of the Nissan Micra, as well as the Nissan Juke, Nissan Leaf, updated Nissan Dualis, face-lifted Nissan Pathfinder and Navara.

The light car will be built at an all-new factory based in Chenai, India, where it will go on sale in May of this year. Australian delivered Micras may come from Nissan’s plant in Thailand.

Some markets are also expected to receive a sedan version (unconfirmed for Australia).

More details as it comes.

    So Australian spec Micra’s will be coming from India then? It’s just I thought I read somewhere that we were going to get ours from Thailand.

    I believe there will also be a Micra sedan version coming out too.

    The Australian model will be out of Thailand.

    lets hope it looks like that, then they might have a nice car to attract buyers scared of by the current “freaky” micra

      The current Micra model have been a success, its a shame that the C+C version wasnt released in Australia.

    This design is nothing but bland. Where’s the Juke-like funkiness?

    We are a Nissan and long before that Datsun owner family and beg to differ that they are good are making cars that half the population will never buy.I have an aunt who had a 120Y Coupe back in the seventies AND A 260Z 2+2 then came a 1992 Pulsar which went onto a good home in 2005 A 1996 200SX followed by a 2003 350Z.In 2006 came my Tiida which this month is about to be traded in for a Micra.I am a male buyer who needed a cheap car for work purposes and living in the inner city by the way which explains a thing or two.
