These Micras are very light weighted...last one was 2100lb or something.
Too bad they never come with turbo like the Toyota Starlet and Mitsu Colt

I want to see it get destroyed in a small overlap crash test

HR16DE turbo kits do exist, albeit difficult to find/not widely available...

Honestly, I don't think the design is BAD, but there's something appealing about the generation before it. Car itself will probably drive like shit, so I think I'd take the Fiesta. The Mirage is on the same tier, and the Yaris hasn't changed much in terms of underpinnings since it first came out.

this is a brand new car for people who dont give a shit about cars. i dig it. there are a lot worse designs on the road thats for sure. look at the neon, aztec, sunfire, cavalier, etc and there are so many that sold. this car is respectable imo, however, i would never consider one.

style wise it dosen't look that bad, does it? especially when compared to a mitsubishi mirage?

(on a side note: i hate what they did to the mirage... i can still remember back in the late 80's-90's when mirages/colts were little turbocharged monsters, and now they have reduced it to a 3-cylinder POS )

Beats riding the bus. Lease rate probably cheaper than monthly bus pass.

I agree the Mirage is worse, but Mitsubishi has 10 year powertrain warranty.

People who think of cars as appliances won't care about the number of cylinders but they will be swayed by a longer warranty.

Having said that, I think there will be a surprising number of non-enthusiasts that will buy the Micra.

I can dig it. For cheap transportation, good on gas, full warranty it's pretty hard to beat. Of course it will be cheaply built but get the fuck over it; it's under $10k for fuck sakes. Having said that, there are other cars that start at $25k that can be had for half that in 2 years. "How much does the factory warranty mean to you?" is the question. This vehicle will be perfect for the "payment sensitive" folks out there that just want to get from A to B without issue.

I rented the Nissan March in Japan last fall and it was a decent car. I wasn't super fast but it was fast enough. I was pleasantly surprised by how good of a car it was. It was good on gas and handled fine.

Autoblog.ca reports that the Versa will no longer be sold in Canada now that the Micra is available. Makes sense, pricing is too close.

I wasn't a fan of the new Versa when we test drove it a couple of months ago.

Nissan was offering an additional $1500 on trade-in for 2009 Versas plus an additional $1000 from the dealership we bought it from, so my GF wanted to check the new ones out as it would've been a cheap switch and a good way to negate 120,000 km.

GF hated it, though. Much smaller, worse vision, less power, 5-speed instead of 6-speed, seats were not nearly as comfortable, and a few other things. There were a few good things about it, but she felt that it was a downgrade overall.

We also drove the Sentra, which I liked, but GF didn't like the lack of space/lack of utility. She carts around a lot of stuff for art shows and such.

Juke looks like a joke but it handles amazing, and myself being a CVT hater, actually didn't mind the CVT in the Juke at all it's quite a decent car really.

The new Sentra has one of the largest, if not the largest trunk in its class.
And also a massive rear seating area

torque vectoring rear diff.


despite the way it looks, Juke is a sharp driving car.

Micra isnt exactly good looking, but is a great little car for payment shoppers... Im sure leasing monthly payment would be around the same as a bus pass....
