<I>The latest chapter in the Micra story is set to open with the arrival of the Micra C+C coup/convertible which was designed and engineered in the UK and will be built here, too. Thanks to its clever folding roof, Micra C+C allows owners the best of both worlds: fresh air when the weather allows and hardtop protection when it doesnt. But the Micra C+C has another trick up its well-tailored sleeve  a C-VIEW glass roof that allows the elements to be enjoyed even in the depths of winter, a first in its class. Just as well because sales start in time for Christmas.<p>"Chic, elegant and modern, Micra C+C adds a new dimension to the Micra family. Not only does it provide all the style of a convertible, it remains a practical prospect thanks to its sizeable boot. With Micra C+C, owning a convertible need no longer be a compromise." Makoto Yamane, Studio Chief Designer, Nissan Design Europe <p>At a glance<p> Elegant Coup & Fun Convertible <p> 2+2 seating<p> 1.4 and new 1.6-litre engine options<p> C-VIEW: All-glass hardtop<p> Auto-Open Roof: one-touch operation - no manual interaction <p> Just 22 seconds to raise or lower roof<p> Class leading luggage space<p> Built in the UK at Europes most productive plant<p>The eagerly awaited Nissan Micra C+C coup/convertible is almost here. Unveiled today (15 June) at the NMUK manufacturing plant in Sunderland, England, sales of the stylish 2+2 are due to start towards the end of the year.<p>First shown as a concept at the 2002 Paris motor show, the production version brings new ideas to its market segment: the folding hardtop is made largely of glass to create an open-air feeling whether the roof is up or stowed away.<p>Development and production of the hardtop has been undertaken for Nissan by Karmann, specialists in the design and production of convertible models. In common with all European Micras, Micra C+C will be built at Sunderland so Karmann has established a small production facility within NMUK where the hardtop modules will be fitted to the Micra platforms.<p>Undeniably elegant, Micra C+C is lower and longer than the hatchback Micra. The roof line, dictated by the steeply raked windscreen, is 110mm lower than on the conventional car while it is also 90mm longer overall: the extra length is all to the rear of the car, to create the room needed to stow the hardtop behind the rear +2 seats.<p>The hardtop itself is a work of art. It can be raised or lowered with one touch of a button while the vehicle is on the move and takes just 22 seconds to fold clamshell-style beneath the double-hinged trunk lid. It is hinged at the bottom and opens front to rear when the roof is raised or lowered and at the top when opened conventionally to stow luggage. <p>Thanks to the Auto-Open Roof, just one button needs to be pushed when hydraulically raising or lowering the roof  an automatic latching system does away with the need to manually lock or unlock the roofs leading edge to the windscreen header rail.<p>But as well as having stunning looks, Micra C+C remains resolutely practical, enjoying class leading luggage space. With the roof lowered the boot area provides 221 litres of stowage space, which rises to an impressive 426 litres when it is in place.<p>In addition the cabin has many clever storage areas, most of which are lockable allowing the car to be left unattended even when the roof is down.<p>Micra C+C, which represents a 150 million investment, will be available with either the recently enhanced 65kW (88hp) 1.4-litre petrol engine or the newly developed 81kW (110hp) 1.6 16 valve twin cam petrol unit as powers the potent new Micra 160SR.<p>"The beauty of the Micra C+C lies in its elegant glass hardtop. Micra C+C is the only coup/convertible in its class to have this feature which allows the owner to enjoy the feeling of open air motoring at all times no matter how the weather is behaving," said Brian Carolin, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Nissan Europe.<br></I><p>Source: Japanesecarfans.com

My result is: I love it, more better than Peugeot 206 CC but i still love Opel/Vauxhall/Holden Tigra CC more but i reckon that Nissan Micra C+C will have better features on any small size Coupe/Convertible car.

Weird looking little thing isn't it? Still likeable. Little convertibles like this make great cars for just cruising, too bad there is a distinct lack of new ones in the US.

XDXDXDXDXD<p>Either there's no rear seat cushion or there's no rear seat legroom.

What is it with these tiny econoboxes and their huge air intakes and front lights that go up to the windshield?? God, they look sort of stupid.<p>But well I guess I can live with it....

nice. I like it. IMHO it looks better with the top off than up. I wonder if they will make a reg coupe version

Somehow I start to get pissed off by all those new CC versions of mini-cars. They are all not appealing, neither top-down (having a HUGE, van-like windshield), nor top-up (pick-up-like trunk). Only the Tigra looks okay. Not every brand needs to have their minicar-CC, gets boring and makes me sick always have to look at odd cars <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0">

Yes indeed, it's a beauty, but i do not consider this to be a mini-car-CC. The same goes for the new Astra CC, which is not too bad either.<br>I'm talking about Peugeot 206 CC, Nissan Micra CC, Opel Tigra, Mitsubishi CZT etc.

JDM Micra C+C is here now (finally).<br>Nothing's changed from the UK spec. They didn't even bother to change the "Micra" name. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://www.hobidas.com/common/aimg/000067387.jpg" BORDER="0">
