What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For It’s cheap to buy and run, it's reliable and it has lively engines

Against Styling is a bit Noddy and safety kit is poor

Verdict It's got a Mumsy image and it's very basic, but it's a bargain to buy and own

Go for… 1.0 Twister 5dr

Avoid… 1.0 Profile 3dr

Nissan Micra Hatchback
  • 1. Micras are a byword for reliability, rating well in our Reliability Index and JD Power surveys
  • 2. Look out for poorly maintained cars that rattle at the top of the engine when idling
  • 3. Servicing is cheap and most spares are cheaper than average as well
  • 4. The Micra's small compared with many superminis. Space is good up front, but tight in the back
  • 5. The Micra gained just two stars out of five for occupant safety in Euro NCAP tests
