What used Nissan Micra hatchback will I get for my budget?
Prices for a Nissan Micra start at £8000 for a 1.0-litre Acenta version with an average mileage for the year and a full service history. Spend between £9000 and £11,000 to get yourself inside a 2017 or even a 2018 model. Around £12,000 to £14,000 will get you a very low mileage car from 2019.
How much does it cost to run a Nissan Micra hatchback?
It shouldn’t cost an awful lot to run a Micra because all engines have combined average fuel economy figures over 60mpg.
The base 1.0-litre petrol has an average economy figure of 61.4mpg, which is narrowly pipped by the turbocharged 0.9-litre petrol that has an average of 64.2mpg.
Both are beaten by the 1.5-litre diesel because it has an average of 88.3mpg, although, Tekna and Bose Personal models have larger alloy wheels that increase fuel consumption, reducing the overall figure to 80.7mpg.
All cars registered after April 2017 will cost you £140 per year in road tax and insurance costs should be lower than its rivals, thanks to all the standard safety technology.
