Nissan Micra

Price $9,988 – $17,598
Fuel consumption 6.8 – 9.0 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 75%(view ratings)
A new Micra will hit the European market in the spring of 2018, but all signs point to North America keeping the current version for another little while. This city car has a 109-horsepower, 1.6L four cylinder that works well with the optional four-speed automatic (a five-speed manual comes standard). The Micra is strong enough to be the star of its own racing series: The Micra Cup!
