    Micra automatic or manual: which should you get for best gas mileage/fuel economy?

    The manual and automatic may have similar ratings, but there's one clear choice if your goal is best efficiency.

    The numbers represent the new, 5-cycle testing that'll be similar (if not identical) to the current tests done by the U.S. EPA.

    The US has been using the more "real world" testing since 2008.

    I don't think this version of the Micra at least, is intended as the high fuel economy version. When you compare this to the Mirage or Spark, i think their betting the increased power and lower cost will be the major selling point. Entry cars don't always have to be economy cars. It sheds the stigma of cheap cars being underpowered or unrefined.

    The president of Nissan Canada has said as much. They weren't aiming for highest economy.

    The susprising thing is that despite the mediocre MPG, the low purchase price means it may still be the most economical car, even when you take fuel cost into account: http://micra-forum.com/showthread.ph...vs-competitors

    This is my 1st post and really like the price, looks and mileage. I am sure with an ultra gauge it would get high 50's.
