May 7, 2018, I became the owner of a 2018 Micra, new off the car lot. Had a ultima previously, but it was a 06, and started getting a little quirky.
Thought with gas prices I would look for something smaller. Came across a website from England showing the Micra. I was amazed at the leg room and head room. Went to the new Nissan dealer in Penticton the next day, and was again amazed at the room in the car. I am 6'-2" and a big guy, but the leg room is wonderful, and I do not feel cramped or closed in. The seat actual sits higher then the ultima, so easy to get in and out of.
It is the basic car, manual transmission, no a/c, wind down windows, no fancy key locks. Just what I was looking for. All the new toys in most new cars are only going to fail at some time, and I wanted something simpler.
Gas mileage is great, and it has lots of pep.
