This Japanese super-mini has been a mainstay of UK roads since its introduction in to the UK in 1983. Why? It's dependable and cost-effective; the German Auto Assoc. named the first Micra (K10) the most reliable car around. The facelifted K11 (92-97) went one better, lifting the prestigious 1993 European Car of the Year Award. The K12 (02-10) set a new bar in the supermini sector with a longer wheelbase and more room, an even more stylish headlight array and offered keyless ignition on top models. The UK-designed K12 C+C Coupé Convertible is particularly head-turning. The Micra K13 was unveiled in 2010 and appeals to both men and women while keeping safety to the fore - it earned four (out of five) stars in the NCAP Safety Awards. The new model also keeps things modern by offering Nissan Connect for hands-free communication, 3D maps and traffic updates.

Nissan Micra Back to top
With a history spanning over thirty years, the Nissan Micra has been a consistent performer in the supermini car class. With good reliability and an emphasis placed on frugality, it's easy to see why.
The Micra may not be a market leader in terms of excitement or performance, but it is certainly one of the most affordable cars to run. For that reason it has consistently been popular with drivers of all types, looking for a good, reliable and affordable vehicle.
Why buy a Micra? Back to top
Nissan Micras are economical and affordable to run.
Nissans are well known for building solid cars that last and the Mirca is no different. Well known for being affordable and reliable, the Micra is one of Nissan's top performers in the supermini class.
The running costs of the Nissan Micra are one of the most attractive aspects of this car, and so for anyone looking for something economical you would be hard pressed to find a better performing vehicle. Fuel efficiency is good, and the standard 1.2 petrol engine model offers impressive returns of 56.5mpg, and CO2 emissions of around 115g/km. There is a better performing supercharged 1.2 DIG-S model however, which is faster and returns 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions under 100g/km, making it road tax exempt.
There are reports that the affordability of the Micra can sometimes work to its detriment, and there have been complaints of a lack of quality in terms of its finishings. Basic models come with limited specifications, while their interiors can often feel very basic. But a good reliability rating means that such problems are counteracted by its affordable running and upkeep costs.
The exterior design varies depending on what generation you choose. The most recent fourth generation is more conservative than its predecessor, which featured a few more radical design flairs. Space wise the Micra is competent - the third generation model offering the most boot space at 371 litres - offering good passenger and driver room, but it sits behind other cars in its class.
As well as being the most efficient, the 1.2 supercharged engine offers better power and performance than the standard model, yet all Micras are very well suited to city driving. The mix of small dimensions, good visibility and responsive handling make this a perfect little run-around, even if this means that it might not be the most exciting car available.
The Nissan Micra safety rating is good, having scored four out of a possible five stars in the Euro NCAP crash safety tests. Along with Nissan's consistently good reliability record, the Micra is a car which is both affordable and trustworthy.
