With its simple handling and small dimensions, the Nissan Micra has remained a popular option among all kinds of UK drivers, with a history spanning some four decades. 

Today, the model comes with an excellent lineup of engines to choose from, while retaining all the ingenuity and durability that made the original a success.

3 things to know about the Nissan Micra

  • Arriving in the UK in 1983, there have since been four iterations of the Micra, with the most recent launching in 2017.
  • The Micra was assembled in the UK between 1992 and 2010, from a Sunderland car plant.
  • The fifth generation (K14) Micra features an innovative ‘trace control’ system which helps prevent understeer by pinching at the breaks. This helps make this agile model easier to handle.

Nissan Micra insurance groups and tax bands

What you’re quoted for your car insurance premium will depend on several factors, including things such as your age or occupation. One thing that some insurance providers may want to consider is the insurance group of the vehicle you drive. This is calculated using a banding system where every model of car is assigned a number from 1 to 50, that acts as an indicator of its typical parts and repair costs. 

Another banding system applied to all models of car is the one used for Vehicle Excise Duty. This is tax paid annually on each vehicle driven on UK roads, whereby the most polluting cars are charged more. 

Nissan insurance groups and tax bands for some popular editions of the Nissan Micra include:

At Ageas, we strive to bring our comprehensive cover to as many UK drivers as possible. But we can’t guarantee to have a policy for every single customer and for every single car model, and this could include some variants of the Nissan Micra.

We will determine if we can provide you with a quote based on a number of factors that include your car and your personal circumstances.
