Nissan Micra C+C review

The recent explosion of the supermini-based has undoubtedly been a female led So it’s hardly surprising Nissan is aiming the Micra C+C at suggesting at least 65% of Micra C+C will be female.

I’d suggest a closer to 95% though, particularly witnessed how odd chaps looked the wheel on the launch event. enter a market already the hugely successful Peugeot 206 CC and Tigra, with the promise of ‘coupe cabriolet’ competition from Mitsubishi among and, of course the Mini with its more conventional roof.

So I’m perhaps not the best to comment on the Micra C+C being in the of a Y chromosome. Sure, I may not be the target but haven driven all the competition so at I can give you a comparison of how the Micra C+C up against them on the road. I cannot do is comment on the styling any authority, as along with its 206 CC rival I think the styling into the challenging category, and if I being entirely truthful I’d say ugly.

Still, that’s just my and the huge sales success of the 206 CC that I clearly know in this department.

I can comment on the way it though and the Micra C+C is easily the competent and rounded performer in category. Admittedly, with the weight that complex roof over its hatchback it’s never going to be a in regards to performance, but the 1.6-litre, petrol engine does a enough job and isn’t too noisy it’s revved.

Do so and it’ll cover the 0-62mph in 10.6 seconds, almost 2 faster than the smaller engine. With just the smaller 1.4 should struggle in but as the 1.6-litre model only £845 and includes manual air (a £500 option on the 1.4-litre and larger alloy wheels the for the 1.4-litre car are scant.

Even the difference in official consumption is minor, the 1.4-litre 42.8mpg compared to the 42.2mpg of the car. The performance might not be but the composed ride and handling the C+C one of the most enjoyable drives in its Even pushed hard the bends the body roll is contained, the ride retaining its on all but the most badly surfaced

Inevitably there’s a loss of due to the loss of the roof with the but the tell tale body is less obvious compared to its Helping ensure that the C+C feels stiffer than its Nissan has incorporated a ‘dynamic to C+C’s structure under the bumper.

Inevitably though there are areas where the C+C is hindered by the to stow a large roof in its boot. The rear seats are sized and best considered as luggage space. And that’s that really the C+C doesn’t – at least when the roof is up. it in position, as it’s likely to be for of the year in the UK, the boot is absolutely and even with the roof it’s generously proportioned – if a awkward to access.

The roof itself stows just push a button and it in 22 seconds. Unlike its rivals glass too, meaning the feels airy even the sun is not hot enough to enjoy top-down.

It may be inside but there’s not a great of space for taller drivers. I the seats too high and rather on leg support and bolstering. They live up to the ‘sports’ seat that Nissan claim. I’d liked to be able to move further back, too, as your head seems close to the header of the windscreen.

drivers, like the women aimed at aren’t likely to it such a problem and it’s a familiar to most of the C+C’s Otherwise, the interior both and looks good; it’s more appealing than its in build quality and style.

Add in decent practicality and prices at £13,150 and the Micra C+C looks a tempting new contender in the coupe market. But, what do I I’m just a man after all.
