What do you think of the Nissan Tiida?

I'm not sure whether to trade in my 2002 52-reg 1.5 S model Nissan Almera or spend more on new tyres and brake pads. I visited a showroom and saw a basic Micra, brand new but now obsolete, and could change for £6000. I also saw the Nissan Note, but think it might become obsolete soon and also what looked like a Note from front but reminiscent of Almera from the rear, and better than both in my view; a Tiida. I've read it up on your website and am not much the wiser. I did not make notes but believe it was a 1.6 model and was selling for £8000. What are your thoughts on this?

Avoid the Tiida. Consider the Note. A new Micra built in India is coming in about November. Completely different. Test and video here: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/nissan/nissan-micr...3
