Why choose a Nissan Micra?

When it comes to features, economy and all-round cute styling, the Nissan Micra ticks all the boxes.

Motorists have loved the Micra since it was first launched in 1982. It’s considered a good option for younger drivers because of its small engine, low maintenance costs and low insurance group.

The new models are less chunky than their predecessors and have standout tech, which includes a Bose sound system and Apple CarPlay. This, combined with the Micra’s reputation for being one of the most reliable small cars on the road, makes it a winner with drivers of all kinds.
