For me, Nismo lost an awful lot of kudos and cred when they introduced the Juke Nismo. So they might as well put the badge on a Leaf.

The Juke Nismo needs more power.  It needs to compete with the Mini JCW - with the weight it needs a power increase for sure.  The Mini Cooper S is running at 210BHP with the 210 Kit - so it needs to be pushing a lot more punch. 

 

The Micra I actually think is a good proposition.  The "Group" family had in the past some excellent Clio's - so there is the capability in the group to do this.  But again it needs to deliver 200BHP+.  Putting a badge on it and bits of trim will not cut it.  Actually if they do Race the Micra rather than RICE the Micra - it could be the next little car in our family.  It has some tough competition.  Although I really do like the new Micra design.

I certainly know where you're coming from Chubbs.

 

That said, the new Micra looks so much better than the last model (wouldn't be hard!) and if I needed a little runabout I might actually consider it.  Wrong?  Probably!  But a nippy little city car...  Maybe!

No, you're not wrong about the looks - it's a vast improvement. But it comes at a cost. Have you seen the prices? :shockhorror:
