Video Car Review: 2015 Nissan Micra

Overview Budget, zippy subcompact hatchback is competent and well-suited for city driving, but pricey options make it more difficult to compete
Pros Fuel economy, easy maneuverability, refreshingly simple, logical interior
Cons Options add up quickly and begin to deteriorate value, engine noise, twitchy highway driving
Value Great
What would I change? Add more options to give the automatic transmission upgrade more value
