Nissan Micra

Now only available as a five door hatchback, the Nissan Micra is surprisingly spacious and easy to drive. The Micra has been around for 30 years and has a dedicated following of fans, but several versions of this car over the years have seen it improve making it the sleeker, smoother driver that it is today.

The best part is you can secure a new Nissan Micra with a £500 deposit and we’ll pay towards your first year’s insurance. You can use this to buy insurance from a provider of your choice (of course, we’d love it if you chose our black box insurance, but we don’t tie you in!)

Reasons to love the Nissan Micra

Effortless to drive

Light steering, great visibility and with ultra-responsive handling make the Micra an easy car to drive. It’s primarily a city car that loves nothing better than quick trips into town. The tight turning circle means that it’s easy to navigate narrow streets and parking is a piece of cake. This cheeky little motor can cope out on the open road, but is not the smoothest ride for long distance driving.

Light on the pocket

The Nissan Micra is one of the cheaper superminis to buy plus the running costs are low. The standard 1.2 litre petrol engine will give a decent fuel economy of 56.5mpg and 115g/km of CO2 emissions.

The insurance costs won’t hit your wallet too hard with all models sitting between groups five and nine.

A decent amount of kit

The mid-range models come with 15 inch alloy wheels, chrome finishes, body coloured door handles and mirrors, plus more safety features. The higher models benefit from NissanConnect touchscreen navigation and entertainment system as standard plus DAB digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity and an upgraded six-speaker stereo so it’s a must if you love your music.

The NissanConnect is a clever bit of tech which means you can Google your route on your phone and send it to your car where it’s displayed on the touchscreen, so no more excuses

Solid safety record

All models on the Micra get six airbags, anti-lock brakes, and electronic stability control as standard. Awarded four stars for safety by Euro NCAP, the Micra lost out on its fifth gold star for not being able to opt for the Safety Shield safety system kit which is available on Nissan’s Note and Qashqai.

Spacious

The Nissan Micra is roomy and as it’s now only available in the five door model, you’ll have no problem getting your mates into the back. There’s a decent amount of headroom for taller friends, but you’d probably not want more than two in the rear for longer trips, even though there are three rear fitting seatbelts. The boot has a 265 litre capacity so you’ll have no problem managing your shopping, luggage, sports kit or festival gear in here.

There’s plenty of handy storage compartments to stash your bits and pieces inside the Micra too, including an exceptionally large glovebox, decent sized door bins and a couple of cup-holders.

Frequently asked questions

What is a guarantor?arrow
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?arrow
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
How does the insurance allowance work?arrow
It’s pretty simple really. Your quote will let you know the cashback amount available on your chosen car. This is the allowance we’ll pay you to put towards your insurance. We’ll pay this directly into your bank account by BACS on delivery of your brand new car!
You’re free to insure the car with any provider (we think it’s only fair!) Of course, we’d love you to choose Marmalade for your car insurance – so don’t forget to get a quote for our black box insurance once you’ve chosen your dream car. You’ll enjoy comprehensive cover, no curfews and you could earn an extra safe driving discount of up to 25% at renewal* if you drive well – on top of any No Claims Discount you earn!
What happens after the first year?arrow
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
How long until I get my new car?arrow
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
