Road test: Nissan Micra 1.2 Tekna

Martyn Collins

The last two generations of Micra have earned a following with British motorists because of their modern styling mated with durable build quality and sturdy engines.

They were also British-built, but it's all-change now, as an all-new, Indian-built, globally-available Micra was launched earlier this year. I spent a week with a five-door, £12,891, 1.2 Tekna to see how it competes against rivals.
