The Nissan Micra, is a supermini rival for the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo, and has been around for nearly three decades, thriving on its reputation for strong reliability. The current fourth-generation model was designed to sell almost unchanged the world over, so Nissan toned down the wacky design of the previous car to give it broadened appeal. As a result, it is only available as a five-door hatchback, with the three-door and convertible CC models being resigned to the history books. Since its 2010 update, it has lost some of its quirky charm and the interior feels a bit cheap thanks to a drop in build quality. Most of the basics are present and correct, however, with a spacious interior with room for five adults, along with a decent-sized boot. However, the latest model isn't much fun to drive, and loses out to the Ford Fiesta for driver enjoyment. Plus, the lowest-specification Visia models are missing some basic equipment that really should be essential on a supermini nowadays.
