New Nissan Micra Quotes

Performance

The entry-level engine is the 79bhp 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine capable of 97bhp in 13.7seconds, making it excellent for urban driving. There is also a 97bhp DIG-S supercharged engine that sets up well for performance and economy simultaneously. Although not flagged particularly for its speed the best Micra in the range is capable of an 11.3 second 0-60mph run which is faster than its Hyundai i20 rival at 11.7 seconds they also reach similar top speeds at around 105mph each.

Running Costs

Despite the absence of a diesel engine option, the Micra is relatively cheap to run, the standard 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine will return a fuel economy of 56.5mpg and has low Co2 emissions of 115g/km. However, the 1.2-litre DIG-S will be a clear choice as it returns 68.9mpg and has road-tax exempt Co2 emissions at 99g/km. Comparatively the Hyundai i20 has a much lower fuel economy of 43.5mpg and a Co2 emissions tax of 119g/km which, added to the purchase price at around £11,000 makes it much less cost effective than the Micra which starts at around £10,800.

Equipment

The Micra is available in three trim levels: entry level Visia, mid-range Acenta and the flagship Tekna, with the entry-level trim the owner can expect body coloured bumpers, USB connectivity and stability control. The top level Tekna will include a panoramic glass roof, unique alloy wheels, roof-mounted spoiler and air-conditioning. To see full specs across the range, download our brochure at askaprice.com.
