Tokyo-based aftermarket specialist Impul has released a tuning kit for the Nissan March/Micra.

The facelifted March/Micra is not the type of car you would normally imagine going through the garage of a tuner but it happened in Tokyo where Impul created a wide body kit for the petite Japanese city car. Showcased earlier this month at Tokyo Auto Salon, the vehicle received a redesigned front bumper with a large spoiler lip along with bigger side skirts and a new rear bumper.

The most noticeable exterior modification is without any doubt the added rear wing but there's nothing going on in the engine department to match the aggressive looks. Other changes include vertical strips of LED daytime running lights sitting next to the fog lights in the lower front grille, as well as the tuner's RS S-05 alloy wheel set.

It should be noted Nissan is offering hotter Nismo and Nismo S versions of the March in Japan, with the latter providing 116 HP (85 kW) and 115 lb-ft (156 Nm) from a 1.5-liter engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
