For most people, driving life starts in a small car, with the Nissan Micra one of the most popular choices over the past three decades.

Nissan has sold bucketloads on the premise of it being cheap and easy to drive. But this latest version is different; it’s gone upmarket, with the promise of a sportier drive and posher interior in an effort to attract people downsizing from larger cars.

At the moment, buyers can choose from a naturally aspirated 1.0-litre petrol, a turbocharged 0.9-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel. It’s a simple line-up that should take some ambiguity out of the buying process.

So, is the Micra now a better choice than rivals such as the Ford Fiesta, Skoda Fabia and Volkswagen Polo? Read on for everything you need to know, including which versions make most sense and the options we think worth considering.
