Yesterday, Nissan announced that it will sell the Micra in Canada. So what about a performance variant?
The March Nismo currently on display at the Tokyo Auto Salon is offering a preview of what that could look like, should it ever journey over the Pacific. Nissan plans to do a huge marketing push for its Nismo sub-brand this year and the March (soon to be sold as the Micra north of the border) could be part of that plan, although that doesn’t seem likely until after its calmer-looking cousin has a chance to settle in.

Along with an aero kit and beefier brakes, Nismo also outfitted the March with suspension upgrades, interior accessories and an exhaust. It might not be a GT-R Nismo, but its price tag is also much less imposing.
