2002 Nissan Micra Tempest 1.0 16v from UK and Ireland
An inexpensive and reliable city car
The car is very nippy and quick from the lights considering that it's a city runabout.
The interior space is reasonable enough to carry 5 (small) adults, but not brilliant for large items.
It looks quite nice for a super-mini and beats the new model on the styling front.
The gearbox is fairly responsive, except reverse which takes several attempts.
It will never break the land speed record, but for a 1.0 it is fairly pleasant on the motorway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
