2018 Nissan Leaf Vs. European Nissan Micra

I was in Europe for a few days, and I saw the new Nissan Micra. A few times, driving around.
I couldn't help noticing how much it looked like the new 2018 Nissan Leaf.

Sure, they are not the exact same design, and the Leaf is larger. (When you compare the two, the Leaf just looks like a larger, slightly bloated and melted version of the Micra.)
Still. The new Leaf is basically a Micra design adapted for the old Leaf platform. 
Which is OK I guess.

No one will confuse the two in the US since we don't get the Micra. 
But in Europe, both cars will look like twins on the streets...

By the way. the new Micra looks great in person. Design, proportions.
It is a shame Nissan isn't selling it over here....

Yes, it looks good in person; especially the proportions of the car. Maybe you´ll compare it to a Clio, one day, since it is being produced in the same factory and probably shares almost everything underneath :)

I was surprised at the range of the Nissan Leaf.It's been on the market for years, and it's doing great.
