Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

British-built Micra has 16-valve engines for good performance and reasonable refinement. Its tall body makes good use of interior space. Add in above-average reliability and fuel economy, plus the fact it's nice to drive, and Micra is a top used supermini choice. Revised models from 1998 are safer than the original, have standard power steering and are becoming more affordable.

Latest generation cars from mid-2000 have uprated engines and feel livelier to drive.

What owners say...

 The most practical thing about the Micra is its tiny dimensions, no matter how you enter a car parking space you will most likely guarantee you're in between the lines. Also, the low fuel consumption...

 The boot space is decent, the interior room is decent enough for a small car. Economy is good.
