The legendary Nissan Micra is making a welcome return to UK roads, and the latest edition of this modern classic expands on the legacy of its predecessors in almost every way. Enhanced performance, tweaked handling and updated styling all ensure that this is an automotive opportunity not to be missed.Exterior Features
The new Micra's exterior has been redesigned to bring it in line with the style of the current family of Nissan vehicles. The influence of hugely popular models like the Qashqai and LEAF can be clearly seen here, with an attractive honeycomb grille and alloy wheels thrown in for good measure. The result is a car which is truly head-turning.Interior Features
On the inside, the Micra continues to impress. The spacious cabin features suede seat trims and a gloss-black central console, both of which contribute to an atmosphere of peace and serenity. Personalisation options are almost limitless, with numerous finishes and a range of genuine Nissan accessories available.Performance and Environmental Impact
As the ultimate city car, the new Micra's performance is ideally suited to an urban environment. With a range of petrol engines available, this unbelievably economical vehicle is capable of up to 65.7mpg combined at its most efficient, while still achieving a power output of 97bhp. Handling is improved yet further in the latest model, with a turning circle of just 9.3m – less than any of its competitors.Safety
Even the most basic specification of the new Micra comes with a range of safety features. Seatbelt reminders, airbags and ABS are fitted as standard, naturally, and exist alongside more advanced systems like the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP).Technology
With the new Micra, the designers went out of their way to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable journey for everyone on board. Bluetooth and USB connectivity are equipped as standard, allowing you to enjoy your personal music collection through the high-quality audio system. Meanwhile, the ingenious i-Key system allows you to start the engine without even having to remove the key from your bag.
