1982-1992 NISSAN Micra specifications

1982-1992 NISSAN Micra specifications Classic and Performance Car

When the Micra – known as the March in Japan – was unleashed in 1982, it was considered a massive step forward for the Japanese company. Its styling was unashamedly European and, when the contemporary Fiat Uno joined it on the market, flattering comparisons were made. The Micra was light and easy to drive, and that made it a huge hit with young drivers. In the UK, it became the most popular car with driving schools, for very good reason, attracting new fans. It survived for ten years, about twice as long as the norm for a Nissan.
