Since its introduction to the UK in 1983, the Nissan Micra has been a common sight on UK roads. The supermini’s popularity is mainly due to its reliability and economy, with the German Auto Association having named the very first iteration of the Micra (K10) the most reliable car available.
The K11 version received a facelift and won the coveted European Car of the Year Award in 1993, whilst the K12 set a new standard in the supermini segment with its roomy inside and wider wheelbase.
The most recent version of the Micra, the K13, was revealed in 2010 and appeals to drivers across the spectrum - especially those concerned with safety as the K13 won 4 out of five stars in the NCAP Safety Awards.
The K13 also keeps up with modern trends, offering 3D maps, traffic updates, and even hands-free communication with Nissan Connect.
Nissan Micra insurance group
Insurance companies assign a ‘insurance group’ number to every model and variant of car available in the UK. The insurance group number helps determine the cost of an annual insurance policy for any given car, with higher group numbers attracting more expensive policies, and lower group numbers being cheaper to insure.
The Nissan Micra falls into groups 1 to 11, making it a cheap car to insure in relative terms.
