Here we have an interesting review. The reviewer drove both both the automatic and manual and really doesn't seem to like the manual. He seems to nag on a lot of things but eventually says that "Nissan has hit the bull's eye with the Micra".
- nice appearance
- comfortable for a city car
- manual trans has strange gear ratios
- very loud acceleration
- fully loaded top-end is very pricy
- significant fuel consumption
