Which used Nissan Micra hatchback should I buy?
The cheapest Nissan Micras are in base-level Visia trim but make do without air-conditioning or alloy wheels. As such, it’s worth seeking out at least an Acenta specification car, which adds these items along with cruise control and electric door mirrors. Top-spec Tekna versions also include parking sensors and keyless go. You’ll need to choose a post-2013 facelift car if you want satellite navigation, with the N-Tec looking particularly well specified.
There are also a couple of special editions to be aware of: the Kuro and Shiro are based on Acenta specification but also include parking sensors, metallic paint and heated seats, while Elle models have a panoramic glass roof and a new rear spoiler.
Whatever Micra you choose, it’s worth paying extra for the supercharged engine, badged DIG-S, and sticking with a manual gearbox to benefit from the free road tax.
