60sec road test
The last Micra had style (of a sort) and a decent chassis. The new one has neither. The interior’s about as inviting as a coal scuttle and feels less well built, the doughy handling fails to inspire and base models have less kit on them than a naturist. It may not be cheerful but it is at least cheap to run, with little burden to bear in the way of insurance, fuel and tax costs.
