    Micra size comparison to other cars (Mirage, Spark, Fiesta, Yaris, Fit, Accent...)

    I discovered this week that I'd been working with an incorrect assumption about the size of the Mirage vs. the Micra (thought the Mirage was a little longer), so decided to do some digging in the stats to see how the Micra stacks up against a bunch of other small hatchbacks.

    Source: manufacturer websites for latest model year.

    See other comparison threads:

    Great chart Darin!

    And just for laughs...Check out the new (2014) MINI...the base model is 10mm longer than the Micra! LOL... and the upgrade one even longer due to spoilers!

    That's funny - are you talking the 2-door or the new 4-door one?

    The two door base MINI! LOL! They made it huge for '14... the main reason I didn't consider buying it. I was really pissed, but hardly surprised as making things bigger is what all car companies tend to fall back on when they just plain run out of ideas.

    Added "height" comparison to the first post.

    And... what the heck is going on there? 2 of the shortest cars (including the Micra) are also the tallest!

    Added a comparison of wheelbase & track as well (post #2).

    Micra is also an outlier in the rear track department, but we already knew that.

    Versa Note, too. Nissan seems to like 'em fat in the back.

    Believe me...when you hit a corner hard and fast in a little hatchback, fat in the back is exactly what you want. It's almost like magic that cheats the laws of physics.



    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.
