Accessibility & Motability

Usability for people with disability or their carers

Motability - Access

The Nissan Micra’s driver's seat is just 594mm high in its loftiest setting. That's lower than you'd sit in a Citroën C3 with the seat all the way down. At least manual height adjustment is standard, even on entry-level Visia cars, although it's a shame there's no lumbar support adjustment, whichever spec you choose.

With a maximum opening of 63 degrees, the door aperture is narrower than those of the Renault Clio (69 degrees) and Vauxhall Corsa (71 degrees), but matches that of the Ford Fiesta.

Motability - Ease of use and options

Nissan has kept things simple with the Micra's engine line-up, with a couple of 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engines. The IG-T 100 engine comes with a five-speed manual gearbox, or an Xtronic automatic. The IG-T 117 has a six-speed manual gearbox, but no automatic option. There’s no diesel or electric version.

The entry-level Visia model is quite basic, without even air conditioning. However, it does have a digital radio and autonomous emergency braking. Stepping up to Acenta spec brings several desirable upgrades, including manual air conditioning, cruise control, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, so you can use your smartphone’s apps – including navigation – via the car’s touchscreen. N Sport cars have a rear-view camera – an especially feature handy given that the Micra's over-shoulder visibility for reversing is poor.
