While an Australian arrival date for the updated Micra – badged as a Nissan March in some markets – is yet to be confirmed, Nissan Australia’s Peter Fadeyev told CarAdvice, it is a model it intends to keep in the local line-up moving into 2014.

At the start of the year, the production source of Australian delivered Micras shifted from Indonesia to India, resulting in the replacement of the 75kW/136Nm 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine in favour of a 56kW/100Nm 1.2-litre three-cylinder unit.
