Sprint Review: Nissan Micra 66kW turbo Acenta Plus

A rejuvenated compact hatchback, lots of information in short paragraphs.

What you need to know: The Nissan Micra was never a huge sales success – well, at least not in Namibia – but it always represented a solid second choice to the evergreen Polo or once-popular Yaris.
