Nissan's Micra takes city driving to another level
The iconic Micra is one of Nissan's bestselling cars and it is easy to see why – it is chic, dependable and very affordable.
This latest edition takes everything that is good about the model and gives it a 21st century edge.
Delivering extraordinary fuel economy, more space and lower emissions, the Micra is a smart investment for drivers looking for a reliable city car.
The design is less "rounded" than earlier versions, with the most recent revamp presenting a much sharper look, as if it has suddenly acquired a new and confident attitude.
Although it is equipped with a 1.2-litre engine, modest when compared to bigger cars, you wouldn't know it – it feels like it has a lot of power beneath the bonnet.
The interior of the car is surprisingly chic, with Nissan investing heavily in an ambitious aesthetic that gives the Micra a deluxe feel.
This helps to make this very practical vehicle an exciting edge, which is a characteristic that has grown in prominence since it first launched in 1982.
