I have a micra and i LOOOOVVVVEEEE it! its very spacious inside (for a small car) and the boot space is more than adequate (I fit the pram and the groceries) I only have DD and shes in a rear facing seat and I think I'll be able to use till a 3rd baby comes along. I had a fiesta 3 door before and it wasn't nearly as good as the micra, AND its cute
Seriously yesterday I had the baby myself my mum and my dad, the pram and some serious christmas shopping and we were all comfy!
I should add I spend about $40-$50 for a full tank I fill it up once a month now I'm a SAHM and when I worked (20km away) I'd fill it up once every 10 days
