Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Up front, the Micra is one of the roomiest cars in the small hatchback class, offering all but the very tallest people plenty of head and leg room.

Practical touches include a decently sized, rubber-lined cubbyhole at the foot of the centre console that’s illuminated by LEDs, making it easy to spot things inside at night. 

Rear space

If you regularly carry more than one adult passenger, you might well need to cross the Micra off your shortlist. Compared with the Skoda Fabia, leg room is tight and head room is downright poor, even for those of average height.

What’s more, only the range-topping Tekna model has a central rear headrest as standard.

Seat folding and flexibility

Nissan hasn’t given the Micra any clever touches to make its interior especially versatile; all models get a simple fixed rear seat base and a backrest that splits 60/40 and folds down.

Dropping the backrest leaves a big step up from the boot floor, too, although this is also the case in most rival cars.

Boot space

The Micra’s boot is a decent shape and usefully wide, so it’s capable of taking a fold-up buggy or a big weekly shop.

If luggage space is an absolute priority, though, you'd be better off looking at the Honda Jazz or Skoda Fabia Estate.
