The 2015 Nissan Micra Earns Great Reviews

August 29th, 2014 by

2015 Nissan MicraExcitement is buzzing around the brand new 2015 Nissan Micra, and the reviews reflect that. It’s being advertised as Canada’s lowest-priced car. And with a base price of $9,998, it’s true that you can’t find another new car in Canada anywhere near that price. But Nissan is not stopping there. With financing plans geared towards new graduates, new Canadians, and also customers who may not be approved for traditional loans, the Nissan Micra is the choice for Regina drivers who want a car that is safe, basic, fun, and affordable. You can see it now at Knight Nissan in Swift Current, SK — but in the meantime, read on to learn about the reviews of the new Micra.

Simple and Easy

So what are the reviews of the 2015 Nissan Micra saying? It’s true that, in order to get that under-$10,000 price, you’re looking at manual and analog everything, from the transmission to the windows to the controls on the dash. A reviewer for wrote, “My co-driver’s first remark when she found the interior un-festooned with LCD screens, heads-up displays and touchscreen readouts replaced by a simple, easy-to-use set of analog gauges and controls was: ‘I don’t need any more than this.’”

Canada Approved

But there is more to the Micra than meets the eye. The base model of the Micra has six airbags, stability and traction control, and anti-lock brakes. Also, this model has been specifically made for Canadians — with our tastes, needs, and road conditions in mind. The mirrors can be heated, and there are even rear seat heater ducts. The trunk has been made large enough to pass the hockey stick test — it’s able to accommodate a full hockey bag laid sideways — and the 60/40-split rear seat is long enough to accommodate hockey sticks, too.

More Features and Options

There are higher trims available if you prefer amenities such as Bluetooth, air conditioning, power windows and locks, and a color screen with a rearview camera display. All the trim levels come with the same engine: a 1.6L four-cylinder, outputting 109 hp and 107 lb-ft of toque through either a standard manual transmission or an optional automatic. But it’s really the basic trim level with its under-$10,000 price that has piqued the interest of Regina drivers. As a reviewer for writes, “It’s been years since an automaker offered a new car at a used car price, or such a pared-down, simple vehicle, but this refreshingly-minimal Micra is both, without sacrificing spirited performance.”
