The Nissan Micra is one of the most popular compact cars on the market today. This is thanks to its nimble handling, solid safety rating in the Euro NCAP crash test, and tough to rival ride quality for its class.
While it might not have built a reputation for being an exciting or incredibly high-performance car there are areas that the Micra excels against rivals such as being incredibly cost-effective. This made this supermini popular with students, young drivers, and those looking for reliable and affordable motoring. No doubt a solid used Nissan to pick up in today's market. And as it's in its fourth generation now you’ll have no problem picking up an affordable model in good condition.
A very impressive option seeing that it has been a successful player in this segment since the early ’80s. Where the Micra thrives is driving in cities. With their responsive handling, tight turning circles and great visibility you’ll have no trouble navigating traffic and tight twisting streets.
There is no shortage of reasons to pick up this practical supermini. Firstly, Nissan has an outstanding track record of creating affordable, reliable, well-performing cars that stand the test of time. Fortunately, the Micra is no exception. Undoubtedly one of Nissan’s greatest achievements.
The Micra is well renowned for its affordability. Its reputation for being cheap to run and fix. Fuel efficiency is also an area where this Nissan excels. You can easily get more than 56 MPG with one of the 1.2-litre petrol models, or even as much as 69 if you pick up one of the DIG-S models. You will be hard-pressed to find something that offers the same balance of affordability and efficiency.
The Nissan Micra offers ample comfort for both the driver and passengers, especially for a car of its class. It could be best in class, or at least incredibly competitive. Comfort is also a focus with premium cushioned seats and a well-thought-out design putting the driving experience first. The quality of the interior finishings does however come across as a little cheap. This is a more than fair trade-off when you consider how affordable it is.
Storage space is also better than you would expect on the Micra. It holds 300-litres, one of the best in the supermini class.
The exterior design does vary depending on the generation you choose with newer models bringing a more contemporary, minimalist feel.
Safety is another area where the Nissan Micra does well. The standard model achieved four out of five stars on the euro NCAP crash test. This is decent for the size and style of the car. If you do add the optional safety pack the Micra achieves the full five stars. This pack adds Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist. It is no surprise that Nissan has managed to maintain this solid reputation for creating incredibly safe and reliable cars. A trusted brand in a wide array of car manufacturers.
There are quite a few Nissan Micra’s on the market to choose from. Here are the main models and features you can expect at each trim.
This is the entry-level Micra that is surprisingly well kitted out for the base trim. A few of the key features include electric front windows, an anti-dazzle rearview mirror, ESP, driver and passenger airbags, ABS with brake assist and EBD, ISOFIX child seat restraints, and Bluetooth integration.
So, even if your budget doesn’t allow for much room for manoeuvre you can still pick up a Micra with a decent spec level.
Next up there is the Acenta Grade. This model offers the features seen the base trim and further enhances it with manual air conditioning, a start-stop system, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, and 15” alloy wheels. It also features a chrome radiator grille and front fog lamps.
The Elle takes that a step further again adding in more premium features such as a glass roof, electric folding and heated mirrors, automatic climate control, ELLE front floor mats, and an ELLE front door entry guard.
Then we have the range-topping Tenka. This high-end model brings parking slot measurement, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, a drive computer, Nissan Connect with a USB point, and front electric windows.
Of course, this model is not only the most advanced model but the priciest a the same time.
While a Nissan Micra is an excellent small car to pick up there are a few considerations you will need to take to ensure you have a solid, reliable car to look after your motoring need for many years to come.
Remember to think about how this style of the car is usually used which is as a city car. This means you will want to look out for general wear and tear. Check for scratched alloys, poorly repaired panels, or mismatched paintwork. These could all be ways that rust could be concealed. Look at the undercarriage of the car for any damage too while competing for your visual check to the outside of the car. Don’t be fooled by a low mileage car, it may have had a tough life beforehand.
Test drive the car to see if it is a good fit for your driving style. Also, make sure you listen out for any strange noises as you start it up, this could be a sign of underlying issues. Also during your test drive check all electronics at the same time.
Keep this advice in mind and you will be well on your way to finding yourself a solid used Nissan Micra.
