A new Nissan Micra Mk5 will arrive in dealerships in February, promising a great combination of style, technology and appeal for the driver. The model he replaces has never really been a contender. But if you can not get close to the newcomer and look for your first car, or simply a cheap and reliable transport, the old Micra Mk3 could be ideal. When it arrived in 2003, the car was very well received. We reported that it was "good to drive, good to see and had a bigger personality than some much more distinguished rivals". We add: "This is by far the best of Micra to date."
Known as K12, it looks like a better purchase than its successor, the K13. So, if you're in the market for a cheap and capable supermini, the Micra Mk3 could just be the ticket. The Nissan Micra first arrived in 1982 and was an immediate success. A new fifth generation model expires in 2017, but we are focusing on the popular Mk3, on sale between 2003 and 2010, in this review.
The third generation of the Micra hatchback arrived to dealers in January 2003. The buyers could choose between the three- and five-door models, with 1.0, 1.2 or 1.4-liter petrol engines and three months later, a 1.5 dCi turbodiesel arrived. When the hot 160SR appeared in May 2005, it brought a 1.6-liter engine with 108 horsepower; A year later, this model was renamed SR Sport. Micra had its first facelift in July 2006 with a front and back revision, interior review and additional standard equipment. The peculiar Micra C + C (coupé-cabriolet) arrived in September 2005, with a single 1.6-liter petrol engine; the 1.4-liter option arrived a year later. Another facial rejuvenation in September 2007 brought more internal and external changes, as well as more revised kits and trim levels.
With Mk3 Micras now quite old, you need to focus on the condition instead of specifying; a 1.2 liter Micra will be a better bet than a 1.4; The 1.0-liter fell in two years as it sold poorly. While larger engines are more suited to road use, the 1.2 is a sweet and free acceleration unit that is very entertaining. The 160SR is an underrated junior model that is really fun to drive. If the economy is more important, look for an edition with LPG or diesel, as the dCi engine of Renault origin is excellent, especially in the form of 81 hp. Trim and trim levels have changed over the years, but all models have included electric front windows, remote central locking and two standard airbags.
