Nissan Micra review .
The current Nissan Micra was introduced in 2017 and is the most grown-up version of the supermini to date. Engine choices are limited, though.Even the basic Micra Visia comes with a full suite of safety systems – and a five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating. However, we’d recommend spending £2,000 more to upgrade to Acenta trim, which adds air conditioning and a touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
