Why Lease A Nissan Micra?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
As you’d expect, small hatchbacks like this aren’t designed for lugging huge amounts of baggage on a regular basis, but the Micra can be very versatile considering its size. It holds 300 litres of space with all seats in place, expanding to more than 1000 litres if you drop the split-folding rear seats. These rear seats are not particularly passenger friendly, but they can seat adults at a push, although taller people may find the sloping roofline that gives the Micra its sporty look becoming something of a nuisance once you’re inside. Storage space at least is plentiful – there’s a 10-litre glove box, door bins that can fit big water bottles, and plenty of cubbies for phones and keys in the centre console.
Figuring out the most efficient Micra to lease isn’t complicated, as there’s only 1 engine offered. It’s a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol with the choice of a manual or automatic gearbox – but which option you choose proves significant. Changing your own gears via manual transmission will see the Micra can hit 50mpg or more, whereas running automatic drops the maximum fuel economy to around 45mpg at most. Either way, the Micra won’t be an expensive car to tax, insure or service – which is one of the things that make it such an attractive leasing choice.
Nissan Micra HatchbackLike most small cars these days, the Micra comes in 1 bodystyle only – a practical 5-door hatchback. There’s no 3-door version, nor a convertible or anything else.
High Performance ModelsThere are no high-performance models of the current Nissan Micra available. The N-Sport trim level does add some sporty-looking black and carbon styling details, but it’s no faster and no more powerful than other Micras in the range.
The Nissan Micra Vs Competitors
Older versions of the Nissan Micra are renowned for their stubborn dependability and this latest model carries on the tradition – it’s a straightforward, no-nonsense car with not much to go wrong. And even if something does, it won’t cost the Earth to put it right.
The Micra’s boot can take 300 litres of luggage, shopping or other items, which means it holds more space than most of its rivals in the supermini segment. All versions get split-folding rear seats – drop these and the space goes up to slightly in excess of 1000 litres.
If you’re looking to lease a Micra, there are several trim levels to choose from, starting with Visia and running through Acenta, N-Sport and Tekna.
If you want parking sensors on your Micra, you have to either pair Acenta trim with the optional ‘Convenience Pack’ or choose the N-Sport or Tekna trim, both of which have parking sensors as standard.
Like all superminis, the Micra’s outright practicality is limited by its size. It lacks any truly innovative practicality touches like, for example, the Honda Jazz’s ‘Magic Seats’ – but in terms of sheer interior space and boot size, it’s one of the more versatile supermini hatchbacks you can buy.
Today’s Micra doesn’t sell in the massive numbers that some of its predecessors did, but it’s still a reasonably popular choice to lease – for the simple reason that it offers simple, practical driving with low running and leasing costs.
