Review Summary:

The is a supermini that has been around since 1982. However, you’d be forgiven if you were oblivious to its existence before 2010 as that was the year it first made an appearance in the Middle East.

Pros

Grille design

Cons

Price

Interior quality
Lack of engine choices

Looks

Atop the roof of the Micra, a design that resembles sound waves is present, and along the sides, it flaunts the same dome-like roof as the Sunny, but the similarities don’t end there.

Feels

With a dashboard that is nearly identical to the Sunny, and the same unappealing circular door handles and circular A/C vents, it makes you question why the Micra isn’t simply referred to as the Sunny . In the rear, leg room is quite shabby, but the impressive amounts of headroom make up for it.

Engineering

For a car that costs a smidge over AED 40,000, you really don’t expect a whole lot of tech. And rightly enough, the 2015 Nissan Micra doesn’t try to pack in a whole lot either, apart from the highly practical intelligent key and push button start.

What’s on offer?

Remember the similarities with the Sunny? Well, they continue under the hood. Hiding under its petite shell is the same 1.5 litre, 4 cylinder engine that produces 99 horsepower and 134 Nm of torque while being mated to a CVT transmission. With sevral variants available, the Micra starts at AED 43,000 and goes up to AED 47,000 for the SL variant with Bluetooth and rear parking sensors.

Summing it…

The 2015 Nissan Micra isn’t exactly good looking, in fact, I’m not too sure why you’d buy one. Because its better looking and better equipped Korean rival, the Hyundai i20, just happens to be a fair bit cheaper, too.
