The coolest guys in college always had cars. Okay fine, I lied, the coolest guys in college were the fellows with the bikes. But face it, every girl, more often than not, fancied the dude with a car a tad more, especially in summer and during the monsoons. The idea of the perfect car has changed since I answered the roll call, but if I were in college now, I’d certainly have the Nissan Micra on my list. Not just any Micra, but the Micra DCI diesel. Here’s why.
It’s got its curves in the right places, which makes it appeal to women without coming out looking like a girly car. Although covered with continents of plastic, the interiors look young and energetic. The cabin has enough space for four teenagers and there’s plenty of space for two hormonal teens to canoodle.
On the diesel, the upper of the twin opening gloveboxes is sealed, a feature also seen on other Micras that come with a single airbag. Other features like the keyless entry/start and electrically folding mirrors remain, reminding you why the Micra presents good value.
