The next generation of the Nissan Micra will aim to win back customers with much-improved interior quality, according to the firm’s executive vice-president, Trevor Mann. The current Nissan Micra has suffered because of poor perceived quality. However, Mann believes its successor — due next year and based heavily on the Sway concept from this year’s Geneva motor show will be more worthy of the Micra name. Although he said production of the car could, in theory, return to Nissan’s UK plant in Sunderland, he defended its current base in India.

“I don’t think you can blame India for the perception of quality,” he said. “You’ve got to blame the people who defined the product. The Nissan Micra is not like that because it’s made in India. We have listened to feedback and I think you will see a big difference. “As for Sunderland, it was always a plant that was designed to be flexible. And it can make Nissan Micra. The debate is whether it can make it and make sense.”

Mann also said the Nissan Micra was likely to grow for its next incarnation and this could open up room for a new, smaller Nissan city car. “It’s always a possibility,” he said, “but I think if you look at that segment, there are still not huge volumes in Europe. It’s something that we will continue to study to see if there are opportunities.”
