Requiem for the Micra: "Keep it simple, stupid!" Wheels.ca
I can't think of any other car that had so many positive reviews as the Micra. It seemed to delight Canadian car reviewers.
Sad that now that the car is cancelled (again), we're seeing a few "obituaries" for it, like this one that came out in Wheels.ca...
Opinion: Keep It Simple, St-- You Know the Rest
The bare bones car is getting harder and harder to come by with the demise of the Nissan Micra in Canada.
Here's a good quote:
The writer even manages to compare the car to a BMW SUV and the Nissan Leaf. Worth a read.
It was endearing because it was just so…easy. It was easy on the wallet, easy to climb into and once started, easy to get to know as there were no fancy switches, knobs, or dials to worry about. Twist the key, hit the clutch, turn the fan up if it was cold, and you’re on your way. Then once on your way, it was easy to see out of, easy to thread through traffic and easy to park. It was the perfect car because it fulfilled out most basic needs when it came to the car: a quick, cheap, inoffensive way to get from A to B.
