The purpose of the Micra in Canada is 'low cost to buy, and fun to drive'. The 1.6L achieves a good power to weight ratio, and is obviously and by far the cheapest car to buy. I think Nissan did a great job of targeting the market, and I think these things will sell like hotcakes (thus making the forum for it).
