Micra Diesel's turning radius is kept to a minimal of 4.65 m, so that you can get out of tight places as quickly and easily as you like. The McPherson Strut suspension in the front and Torsion Beam suspension in the rear are great shock absorbers, which minimize the discomfort caused by driving on pot-holed Indian roads.
