    You can't compare a Micra to a Smart Car. I can carry 3 people in my car or a good quantity of boxes and other stuff.

    Mine is a 2015 and I wouldn't hesitate to buy a new one were one available.

    yea +1 on that..you could buy a used one for 30K!! lol
    2015 Micra S (manual)
    no A/C /no power options/ block heater/4x 2 Ohm speakers...all factory stock in 2015
    Feb 2015 build
    9,999 purchase price + tax..no additional 1600$ because it was a 2015 purchased in 2016
    so receipt says $8,399....+1600 .... so they look good i guess...for a brand new car!

    I just drove my Mexican Nissan March (Micra) from Manzanillo to Comox.. got a few odd looks at the Jalisco license plate but the car was just fine... The Sense automatic with A/C (they don't sell cars without AC in Mexico) model cost me CA $15K brand new. No problems with customs and immigration. 18-20km/liter driving at 60mph.

    ... for it's size a little 2 seater grocery getter, the smart car gets terrible fuel economy.. even the diesels got only 65mpg

    I am perfectly capable of upshifting AND downshifting! Give me a tall cruising gear any day. I'll drop it down a cog when I want power.
    ... if you can buy some larger diameter tires... that's what I did. The stock tires on my new 2021 Nissan March (Micra) were garbage... I went and purchased some good quality and slightly larger diameter tires right off the bat.. made a huge difference... my car has 14" tires
