Nissan has confirmed that it will reintroduce the Nissan Micra in the Canadian market.

Christian Meunier, president of Nissan Canada, has announced that the Nissan Micra will return to Canada this year. He said the car will be tailored specifically for Canadians and not available in the US. Nissan claims that the new Nissan Micra will feature "an impressively low cost of ownership and will revolutionise what Canadian consumers expect from an entry-level car".

"After 21 years, the Nissan Micra is returning to Canada to change the automotive landscape," said Meunier.

"Micra will provide Canadians with the unbeatable value, Japanese quality, European bold styling and fun driving experience that they deserve in a small car."

More details will be provided at the upcoming Montreal Auto Show on January 16.
