The Nissan Micra set a new standard for small cars when it was launched in early 2003, and it's still one of the best around today. The looks may not be to everyone's taste but it's well equipped, cheap to run and there are some neat features available (like keyless entry).

The Nissan Micra set a new standard for small cars when it was launched in early 2003, and it's still one of the best around today. The looks may not be to everyone's taste but it's well equipped, cheap to run and there are some neat features available (like keyless entry). It's cracking value too - whether you're buying new or used while light steering and good visibility make it easy to drive and park.

All the engines are economical, especially the dCi models which can average more than 60mpg and the Micra makes a surprisingly good long distance car. It may not have the youthful image of rivals like the Mazda 2 or Ford Fiesta but it's still a good small car that's hassle-free and affordable to own.

 So cheap to run! I drive 50 miles, 5 days a week. I fill the tank up and it only costs me £40 and it lasts all week!

 Size for parking. Reasonable rear leg room and boot, you can move the rear bench to make the boot bigger if required.
