Fun, compact and stylish – the new Nissan Micra is a city car that has it all, including the accolade of being voted Ireland's Small Car of 2018! Take your pick from five trims – XE, SV, SV PREMIUM, and top-of-the-range SVE – all of which offer low running costs.
This five-door supermini has bigger dimensions than ever, yet it’s still nimble enough to zip around town. The floating roof, angled bonnet and high glass-to-bodywork ratio optimise urban driving, while LED daytime running lights leave a lasting impression. Add coloured wheel inserts to reflect your personality.
Soft-touch materials, minimalist lines and an intelligent dashboard layout create a contemporary space. Smart suede-finish seats are also available in some models. The latest generation has more space, too, with plenty of leg and headroom, even for two adults in the rear – plus a 300-litre boot that rises to 1,000 litres when you lower the 60/40 split-folding seats.
Engines and performance
Choose between two energetic engines with five-speed manual gearboxes. The 0.9-litre turbo charged three-cylinder petrol can hit 60mph in just 12 seconds, while the more economical 1.5-litre diesel manages an impressive 88mpg to reduce your cost of ownership. Light steering and forgiving suspension make city driving fun again.
Technology and safety
Even the entry-level XE comes with stability control, lane-departure warning and autonomous emergency braking to keep you safe and steady. There’s also automatic start/stop technology (SV+ models) so you can get going at the push of a button.
The SVE model comes with a seven-inch touchscreen to access apps and satellite navigation. You can also make hands-free calls on the move with available Bluetooth connectivity, or stream music through the crystal-clear Bose sound system.
