First launched in 1982, the Micra is now in its third generation and has fast become the best-selling Nissan car in Europe. Over 1.3 million units of the previous Micra have been sold between 1993 and 2002. Micra’s B-platform is the first ever to be shared within the framework of the Renault-Nissan Alliance.

The culmination of a two-year project to develop a range-leader which would add spice and dynamism to the Micra range, the 160SR is intended for enthusiastic drivers.

Central to the 160SR’s character is the 1.6-liter 16 valve four cylinder twin cam engine. An all-aluminum low friction design, the engine is also notably lighter than similar capacity units from rival manufacturers. To produce sharper, sportier handling the suspension has been stiffened and the power steering modified to give greater feel and feedback.

I like it a lot, but, for me, the Versa works better because of the rear leg room. 4 adults would not have fun fitting in this car. Rear leg room is like the Mini, almost none. For someone that can do with two seats and a rear baby car seat holder, this is a sweet ride.
