Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

I ride a 650 Burgman Executive. The Mirage has made me put the Burgman up for sale. With about 2 mpg of the same mpg as the Burgman 650.

I miss square box small wagons/vehicles! A Suzuki Jimny could fill that void. Ugh! Early generations of the Honda CR-V had a table with folding legs in the back. That's quite a downgrade from the fold up moped!
I remember when I was in Jr high a kid had a 50cc yamaha crotch rocket. You only needed a learners license(14y/o) to drive one. The cops came to school one day and impounded it after he was riding it all over the school grounds lol. It looked kinda like this one

Well it looks like I will soon be a 2021 mirage es owner.
First time I've bought a new car without test driving it. I feel like I made the right decision as it ticks all of the boxes for me.
What's it like to sleep the front seats, does the seat recline far back enough?
I would normally be concerned for someone who bought a Mirage without driving it, but your history with UK spec Micras means you have a pretty good idea of what to expect. (Depending on which generation, the Micra would have had slightly sharper handling, though.)
As for sleeping in the car, you might be interested in this thread. Taking it to the next level...

It was the K11 1.0 micra.
