When it comes to city driving, you can’t beat a small car. But when you are weaving through traffic in Joburg, trying to find parking in Durban, or simply trying to find your way through the maze of one ways in Cape Town, you want more than a small car: you want a small car that is comfortable, stylish and most importantly, highly affordable. Meet the Nissan Micra – more than just a small car!
Town driving shouldn’t be complicated – you have too much else to worry about while driving. While city driving speeds might be lower on average than out on the freeway, it still has its fair share of dangerous accidents – which is why you want your small car to be able to protect you in the case of an accident: airbags, disc brakes, ABS, EBD, brake assist, ISOFIX child safety seat anchors and more. The 6 airbags and high strength body zone gives you peace of mind should the worst happen.
But safety also needs security. So say hello to a NATS immobiliser and Nissan Datadot anti-theft identification system. Both of these systems help to keep you car safe, the NATS immobiliser helping to prevent your car from being stolen while the Datadot system helps to identify and track vehicles helping to recover them easier.
It is not just safety and security you need to worry about when it comes to town driving – you also need to have the confidence to know that if you put your foot down, your car will respond quickly to get you out of trouble. With 73kW and 0-100km/h in 11 seconds ready and waiting for you in the Tekna, you know that the Micra is quick and zippy enough to make town driving easy. To make it even easier, the Nissan Micra has a turning circle of only 4.64m – making life really easy in busy areas.
Of course when you are driving through town, you want to have comfort and the right accessories to make sure that your car stands out. With plenty of clever storage space in the cabin to ensure that you can always keep your mobile safe and keep stuff out of sight for security when you park in town. Of course you don’t just want to have plenty of storage in the cabin, you’ll also want space in the boot. The spacious 256l boot has the option for guards on the tailgate entry, with an illuminated boot and soft liners to keep your kit safe. And speaking of optional extras, what about roof boxes, headlight guards, chrome options on the side mouldings and mirrors?
Sounds good? Of course it does! Take a look at the Nissan Micra here or book a test drive and find out why the Nissan Micra is more than just a small car.
