A curious mix of high technology engineering and a average supermini. In its quest to down emissions and improve Nissan has developed a very exotically specified version of its three-cylinder petrol engine. got a de-coupling supercharger, stop-start, on auxiliaries, low-friction internal and uses the Miller combustion at low revs for maximum economy.

It#39;s even got a more body to help it cut through the air efficiently. All very impressive, but popped it under the bonnet of its average Micra, which is the least impressive superminis today.

Is it any good?

Looked at with a mind on economy the DIG-S is right at the top of a particularly tree. Returning mpg and CO 2 figures to the best diesels, the supercharged DIG-S can manage 68.9mpg on the combined consumption cycle emitting just 95g/km. The is the highlight, with its percussive throb enjoyable, though it need plenty revs to its best.

The supercharger here does performance, with a 0-62mph of 11.3 seconds, but the DIG-S isn#39;t about traffic-light not least because you#39;ll be with the engine idle to the stop-start system.

It#39;s all about efficiency, given the Micra delivers in the driving stakes is no bad thing. little fun behind the wheel, so best to use your time to maximise your economy. The similarly lacklustre, with the lacking any flair and constructed some rather inexpensive and feeling materials.

If you want some joy in your then look elsewhere, but if you maximum mileage from it the Micra#39;s worth considering.

I call the bank manager?

the Micra DIG-S cannot match the very best superminis at the pumps it wins on its price and equipment. Diesel is expensive at the pumps too, and the performance is among the best to its frugal rivals. Nissan confirmed pricing yet, but it to start from £11,000.


A clever, economical that#39;s saddled with a average car to haul around, the DIG-S impresses with its fuel consumption and emissions but falls short in every area. If economy is your reason for buying then worth consideration, but we#39;d some penalty at the pumps and buy any of its which offer a far more all-round ownership proposition.
