Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

The standard Micra scored a reasonable four stars out of five in Euro NCAP crash tests so the C+C version should prove equally as strong. It has four airbags as standard plus ABS with brake assistance (which increases the pressure applied to the brakes in an emergency situation). Top of the range models have electronic stability control to help if the car starts to spin or skid off line.

The hard roof is far more secure than a soft-top and the secret storage compartment under the passenger seat locks with the central locking.

With the roof up, the luggage capacity is enormous, with an impressively large boot of 457 litres - that's more than a Ford Focus. Drop the roof down and there's still a decent amount of storage space, although it is harder to access as the roof creates a narrow slot beneath to get things in and out of. The roof itself is fully automatic so there's no catches or handles to release - simply push a button and it retracts in 22 seconds.

Handily it works at slow speeds which is useful if you get caught in a sudden downpour while in traffic. Next to the twin cup holder up front is a space designed to take a mobile phone. A secret compartment under the passenger seat will easily swallow a small handbag, camera, sunglasses or suchlike and locks whenever the central locking is activated.

Like the standard Micra, top of the range versions feature the Intelligent Key, which allows the key to remain within your handbag or pocket automatically unlocking the doors whenever you approach. Only the heavy rear boot-lid which might take two hands to lift, draws any criticism.
