The Nissan Micra is well built, smartly styled and possesses an upmarket, comfortable cabin – just three reasons why this supermini is a popular choice with first-time drivers and young families alike
From any angle, the Micra impresses, thanks to its sporty design cues that include an attractive character line that runs along the vehicle’s flanks. Expansive wheel arches help give the car its subtly muscular look – while inconspicuous A, B and C pillars provide the Micra with its ‘floating roof’ appearance. A five-door body allows easy access for rear-row passengers, and there’s room inside for five, especially since this fifth-generation model is larger than ever. An expansive front windscreen provides the driver with good forward visibility too. A 300-litre boot is bigger than can be found in, say, the Ford Fiesta or Volkswagen Polo. With rear seats reclined, cargo capacity increases to a very decent 1,004 litres.
A 1.2-litre petrol engine comes as standard with entry-level Visia trim lines. This 80bhp unit manages as much as 56.5mpg and produces CO2 emissions from 115g/km. An optional 1.2-litre supercharged petrol engine, meanwhile, delivers 98bhp, returns as much as 68.9mpg, and produces emissions as low as 95g/km, making it a good choice for eco-conscious motorists.
A four-speaker stereo system (with CD player and AM/FM radio), AUX and USB inputs and Bluetooth connectivity are included as standard. Top-tier Tekna trims come with two extra loudspeakers, and NissanConnect, which also includes navigation functionality. All models are fitted with six airbags, front seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters, and ISOFIX child-seat anchor points. A range of driver aids feature, such as Electronic Stability Programme and Tyre Pressure Monitor System, which continuously evaluates tyre pressure, alerting the driver of any significant deviation.
