The Micra is an excellent choice for a city car, thanks to its small dimensions, good visibility and responsive controls that make it nippy around town. It’s easy to maneuver, making it easy to navigate heavy traffic and slip into tight parking spots.
And despite its compact dimensions, the Micra is surprisingly roomy inside, with plenty of space to fit two adults in the rear seats. The boot is slightly off the pace compared to rivals like the Ford Fiesta or Vauxhall Corsa, but it’s plenty big enough for the weekly shop. There’s plenty of space inside the car, too, with ample storage space and plenty of useful cubbies. It’s also got a very comfortable ride, with the suspension doing a good job of soaking up lumps and bumps.
The Nissan Micra has been around for nearly 30 years, and thrives on its reputation for being highly reliable. It has a four-star rating from Euro NCAP, and it scored a solid 84 per cent for adult safety. It’s also got plenty of safety equipment including six airbags, ISOFIX child seat-fittings, anti-lock brakes, and electronic stability control.
The Micra is cheap to run and service, and if you pick the 1.2-litre DIG-S, it’ll emit just 95g/km – making it road tax exempt. Insurance should be reasonable, too.
