Hey, Mum. Who stole the fourth cylin­der? NEIL DOWL­ING loses it in Nis­san’s new baby TURN the key and the sound of three cylin­ders un­der fire con­firms that a mo­torist’s life is start­ing to change.

Nis­san has dis­pensed with one cylin­der to save money; money on mak­ing the en­gine, money on build­ing the small car and money saved in the owner’s fuel bill.

The thing is — chop off a bit and some­thing has to give. In this case, lose a cylin­der and you lose some of the zing.

That aside, Nis­san’s Mi­cra is a re­ally good thing — cer­tainly one of the three best ba­bies on the mar­ket— and per­fectly re­flects the au­to­mo­tive art of down­siz­ing.

It’s safe, strong, com­fort­able, cheap to run and affordable.
