    Nissan Micra All New For 2015

    Nissan have given their most recent Micra model - the 2015 Micra a makeover, making it the ideal, stylish supermini for those who are on a bit of a budget…

The Nissan Micra just got slick and refined for 2015. Nissan’s reliable supermini has had the treatment – gorgeous exterior styling, an interior you want to fondle, better spec and great value for money.

The Micra always drove well. It was nippy and nimble, so the new version hasn’t tinkered too much. If it ain’t broke, as they say. The DIG-S engine is a real winner here, teaming a direct-injection engine with a supercharger.

Planet-friendly issues have clearly been at the forefront of Nissan’s minds. The Micra is greener than a polar bear’s kneecaps, but performance is nothing to scoff at either, as the 1,198cc engine will reach 60mph in under 11 seconds. The standard gearbox is a five-speed manual, but you can opt for a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) automatic for ducking and diving around town.

If you’re into saving money, you might prefer the 1.2-litre non-turbo petrol. That’s good for around £1500. Whatever you go for, you'll enjoy well-designed suspension at the back, so boot access won’t be a problem, and a turning circle of just 4.5m makes the supermini a super option for u-turns.

The biggest change you’ll notice is externally. The Micra has a new face with a newly designed grille that makes it look much more like its bigger siblings. There are changes, too, to the wings, headlights, bonnet and bumper. Front fogs have some neat chrome edging and the back has a slicker bumper to go with the LED tail lamps

It’s a fresh look that’s set off nicely with 15” and 16” alloys. To the eight existing colour options, you can now add the rather exciting pearl metallic Pacific Blue and metallic Platinum Sage.

But does the Micra score over the Fiesta and Corsa? To do that, it would need a revamped interior, and that’s exactly what buyers will get. The interior has had a lot of work and now offers a high equipment level, thanks to the Tekna trim.

Accommodation is more than adequate, making you wonder where Nissan found the space from. Head room and shoulder room are vastly improved from the predecessor and the boot is a pretty competitive size. With a low window line and plenty of glass, the cabin has an airy feel.

So, if you’re in the market for a high-spec supermini that’s nice to drive, extremely sensible and starts at just £9,695, the Micra should be on your shopping list.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed.
