The new-to-Canada 2015 Nissan Micra subcompact will start at a $9,998, making it the lowest priced car in the country based on manufacturer's suggested list price, the automaker has announced.
"As the only high-volume car to be offered in Canada and not the United States, Micra is here to give Canadian drivers an affordable, high-value entry point into the Nissan brand," Christian Meunier, president of Nissan Canada, said at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto.
"At Nissan, we understand the need in Canada for small, urban-friendly cars that are fun to drive and express their driver's personality. With Micra, we're delivering a proven global vehicle at a very attractive price -- it's going to make a huge impact on the market."
The Micra will go on sale this spring and Nissan says the car's affordability will carry through to its upgrades and accessory packages, which will start at just $200.
"Available in three models, the Micra S, SV and top-of-the-line SR will be available with either a five-speed manual transmission, or a four-speed automatic transmission," Nissan said in a news release. "Each model is equipped with an advanced 1.6-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine with dual fuel injection and Twin CVTC (continuously variable timing control)."
