Nissan Micra – The Perfect First Car

Buying your first car is an important step in anyone’s life. It generally marks our first step into adult responsibility and it is our first true adventure into the great unknown world of independence. So, it comes as no great surprise to anyone that one of the questions that is asked most frequently of all motor dealers is – Should I get X Brand and Y Model as my first car? Well we posed this question to our Group 1 Nissan Sales team, with the only thing being added being the make and model of the car (which was the 2017 Nissan Micra). Unanimously the answers came back as a resounding YES! Out of all of the responses we got, three stood out the most due to them being repeated the most often. They were the following:

The Nissan Micra is Cost Effective to Own!

Nissan is already known as an affordable brand, but the latest version of the MIcra is the most affordable car in the Nissan stable. At the time of publishing the 2017 Micra was priced from R 155,900, which works out to a VERY affordable R 1,799pm*. To top it all of the Micra is by no means a bare bones vehicle, and comes standard with Driver & Passenger Airbags, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, Rear Fog Lights and Electric Power Steering to name but a few features.

The Nissan Micra is Efficient!

Your first car needs to save you money not just when you buy it, but also while you’re driving it. This is why Nissan built 2 very different but very efficient engines to power the Micra. Take a look below and you’ll see what we mean.

Consumption rates** Litre per 100 kms** Kilometres per Litre**
1.2l Visia+ 6.2 L/100 km 16.13 km/litre
1.5l Tekna 7.56 L/100 km 13.23 km/litre

The Micra also has a very reliable engine, both in the 1.2 and 1.5 litre options, which means that you save on possible expensive mechanical costs. Nissan is in fact so confident in their engines reliability that they offer generous service intervals of 15,000km and an optional service plan that is there to give you more bang for your buck. Additionally, the Micra is backed by a 3year/100,000km Nissan Warranty and 24 Hour Roadside Assistance Plan.

This Nissan Micra is BIG on Space

Micra by name, but most certainly not micro by nature, this car might be classified as a supermini vehicle but it still provides more than enough space for passengers and cargo! With some of the most generous dimensions in its class, the Micra measures in with an Overall Length of 3780mm, an Overall Width of 1665mm and an Overall Height of 1515mm, every drive in a Micra is a comfortable one.
