The Nissan Micra, known in Latin America and in most of Asia as the Nissan March is a supermini produced by the Japanese automaker Nissan since 1982. The original Micra (chassis name K10) was introduced in October 1982 as a challenger to the highly successful Honda City. It was intended to replace the Nissan Cherry as the company's competitor in the supermini sector, as the Cherry model itself had progressively become larger with each successive generation. It was introduced in the European market in 1983, and in Canada in 1984 for the 1985 model year (replacing the Nissan Pulsar hatchbacks).
