    Excellent idea. Do you know if that weight is for the manual or automatic? 2 or 4-door?

    You can check the Micra's length/width specs here: http://micra-forum.com/showthread.ph...ns-and-Options

    I suspect ford.ca has the Fiesta dimensions as well. I haven't checked, but I bet it's a little bit bigger.

    I'm pretty sure that was the 4 door stick shift, I'll double check my brochure.

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

    You still have the brochure! Excellent.

    If it has the lowest weight MT/Auto Micra (probably the 2 door), that'd be perfect. If not, no big deal.

    Huh. Brochure has dimensions, not weight. Will upload to my blog later. I can't remember where I got that weight, it's not in my service manual either. Can't find my original owner's manual, might have left it in the car when I sold it. I think it's safe to assume that weight is for the 2 door 5 speed.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Micra#Micra_K10

    Wikipedia says 1,488 lb (675 kg) ... but that's probably a model sold elsewhere with a smaller engine, bumpers etc.

    Just thought I'd share these here:




    The 2017 Manual SV with a full tank of gas (noone inside) weighs in at 1050KG (2315lbs).

    Mirage and Versa are also both great cares but Micra has the edge of its good looks.
