Kuldeep says,“The Micra’s styling is very good and it’s certainly a breath of fresh air in the market. The interiors are nice too. But I don’t like the light beige shade of the upholstery; it will soil easily. The circular theme of the cabin is a very stylish touch as is the keyless start/stop button.”

Mohammed says,“This car looks more modern than any other small car in the market. I like the oval headlamps and the stylish grille. But the rear styling is a bit boring. I like the driving position and the big dials. The boot is big enough, but Nissan should offer split rear seats. The engine is noisy but has good power.

Pramod says,“This is the best new small car I have seen in a while. The styling is sharp and the cabin too is nice. I like the circular theme of the dashboard. The rear seats are very good for comfort and space is more than adequate; even the headroom is immense. But the tyres could have been wider and the light interior colours will easily soil.

Sukhdev says,“It looks fantastic and seems like a good overall package. Nissan has managed to pack in lots of cabin space in a compact design. I like the dashboard layout, and the front seats are comfortable and supportive. Overall, the Micra feels like a reasonable proper city hatchback.”
