Oh FFS. I don't doubt that it's a brilliant litle car that will deliver excellent economy, hold its value well, be supremely reliable, be pleasant and thoroughly inoffensive to drive, etc etc but it's never going to be cool is it?

Pretty little thing (except the very front) but not cool. Don't mistake pretty for cool.

A cost reduced version of the previous car but the customers haven't noticed or they've traded up to the juke . The roof panel is interesting .

An appliance for people who cannot see why a car needs to be cool.

Does a car need to be cool? If it does, we're all going massively wrong somewhere because there are very few genuinely cool cars out there.I imagine that this is one of those cars where the owners couldn't give a **** whether it is considered cool anyway. Economy, practicality and reliability are probably more important.

I don't see the point of having stuff like this in here. Nobody thinks it's cool but criticising it for that is a bit like criticising steel toecap boots for being no use to ballet dancers.

Have we really not yet had a car that everyone has voted uncool/seriously uncool? I haven't checked or thought about it until now but it's quite hard to believe.

I suppose someone could vote cool just to be awkward but we all know this hasn't a snowball in Hell's chance of being considered cool by anyone with even the vaguest notion of what it means.

It's warm on a wintry day, (better than freezing your nuts off at a bus shelter ) and with aircon, cool in summer.

The rest of the time it spends in it's garage just feeling sorry for itself?

But, no, hers indoors is a bit bigger and cooler than that, she says so anyway. She did look at Micras but decided they were just to bijou!

My son, who had worked on his girlfriends Micra, reckons they are really well designed from a maintenance and repair point of view. However, this thing and its predecessors are only ever seriously uncool.

The old bubble shaped one was a decent little thing to drive too (courtesy car). A lot like driving a Mini only with a better ride and far better than a Corsa or Fiesta of similar age. Still felt really silly in it though.

That car would be brilliant for my fitness regime because I would always walk rather than drive. 😉

Almost cool but there's a lot better out there in his sector. Bug improvement over previous model.

Its association with my ex wife gets an uncool vote from me.
I don't want to invest any more in it than that.

I learnt to drive in a MK1 Micra, easy to drive and very forgiving. Aside from that I have no fondness for this car, and it's seriously UNCOOL!!!
