Nissan Micra - Price, Consumption & Review
New Nissan Micra

The Nissan Micra has been discontinued

The Nissan Micra has been a firm favourite with South African drivers looking for a smaller car that offers the luxury and safety features normally only found in bigger vehicles and it was sad to see this range discontinued.

If you are looking for an alternative to the Micra hatchback with as much style, you will find it in the new Nissan Magnite – a super hot crossover SUV that will turn heads wherever you go. If the crossover is not your thing, you can always look at the Nissan Almera – a spacious sedan with a huge boot, comfortable seating for five, and laden with features.

Alternatively, if you simply have to have a Micra, browse for the model of your choice on the used Micra page, where you will find a range of different Micra types and year models.
