    2015 Micra vs competitors, power to weight ratio comparison

    How does the Micra stack up against its competitors when we're talking power to weight ratios? It is neither the heaviest nor the lightest, and also not the most or least powerful.

    All the weights are the Canadian 5-speed manual version unless there isn't one available (as is the case for the iQ and ForTwo).

    Car Horsepower Weight
    kg (lbs)
    Weight / Horsepower
    lbs
    1. Hyundai Accent 138 1087 (2396) 17.4
    2. Kia Rio 138 1093 (2410) 17.4
    3. Mini Cooper 121 1150 (2535) 21.0
    4. Nissan Micra 109 1044 (2302) 21.1
    5. Ford Fiesta 1.6 120 1151 (2537) 21.1
    6. Honda Fit 117 1132 (2496) 21.3
    7. Nissan Versa (sedan) 109 1068 (2354) 21.6
    8. Toyota Yaris 106 1041 (2295) 21.7
    AVERAGES... 105.8 1044 (2303) 22.3
    9. Scion iQ 94 965 (2127) 22.6
    10. Mazda 2 100 1046 (2306) 23.0
    11. Fiat 500 101 1072 (2363) 23.4
    12. Smart ForTwo 70 820 (1808) 25.8
    13. Mitsubishi Mirage 74 895 (1973) 26.3
    14. Chevrolet Spark 84 1060 (2337) 27.8

    So, despite it having neither the most horsepower nor the lightest chassis, the Micra actually fares quite well in this comparison due to having above average horsepower and an average weight chassis.
