Nissan Micra

(2017 - present)

The Nissan Micra is a small supermini-class five-door hatchback. The current version was launched in early 2017, and received new engines and minor trim updates in Winter 2018/19.

It has received praise for its practicality and standard safety kit, but is no longer considered to be among the best superminis on sale.

The Nissan Micra has not yet been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP. As yet, very few new cars have been tested for environmental impact by Green NCAP, and the testing programme was halted in early 2020 by the coronavirus pandemic. It is due to resume in the second half of the year.
