Anybody who trades in a current or classic Micra for a new, top-of-the-range Micra SVE will get an £800 thank you from Nissan.

They will also get three years’ free servicing, three years’ free roadside assistance and, if they choose to finance their purchase over three years and have enough for a 40% deposit, they will pay zero interest.

This deal brings the price of a new SVE down to as little as £9695 for the fully equipped 1.4-litre three-door or no more than £11,245 for the 1.4-litre five-door automatic.

The SVE’s specification includes keyless entry and start up, parking sensors, electronic climate control, rain sensing wipers, and see-you-home lighting.

For customers that use Nissan’s Preferences scheme, the company is also offering free insurance on Micra S, SE Extras and SX in lieu of the SVE’s loyalty bonus. Previously Nissan’s free insurance excluded under 21s but now applies to anyone aged 19 and over (21 still in Northern Ireland though).
