New Nissan Micra Limited Edition launched

New Nissan Micra Limited Edition launched

The Limited Edition should prove appealing for any motorists interesting in adding an extra touch of class and exclusivity to their city car. The Micra is the third best-selling Nissan model in the UK and Europe behind Qashqai and Juke.

The Micra Limited Edition is based on the mid-range ‘Acenta’ trim model. It adds a host of visual changes on top of the Micra’s facelifted design introduced back in September last year.

This is the second special edition Nissan model to be revealed recently, as the Micra closely follows the new Qashqai Premier Edition.

With the Micra Limited Edition you get a contrasting roof colour, matched to the door mirror caps. This whole look is available in three colour combinations. These combinations include Pacific Blue with a White roof/mirror caps, Shiraz Red with a Black roof/mirror caps and Alabaster White with a Red roof/mirror caps.

On top of these vibrant colour combinations, the Micra Limited Edition also adds contrasting side sills and centre caps, plus a ‘Limited Edition’ badge and a chrome exhaust.

Inside the Micra Limited Edition has a colour contrast effect for the air vents, floor mats and the lower part of the gearshift column, in similar fashion to the roof.

Since the Micra Limited Edition is based on the Acenta trim, standard equipment includes air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth, a leather covered steering wheel and a roof spoiler.

It also utilises the NissanConnect infotainment system operated via a 5.8-inch display screen. This supports satellite navigation, radio and other onboard features.

The satellite navigation system incorporates a programme called eco-routing – this allows the driver to see the best route to their intended destination which will let the car run at its most efficient state.

Other useful features onboard the latest Micra include Parking Slot Measurement, which helps guide the driver into tight parking spaces, and I-Key which delivers not just keyless entry but also keyless engine start.

Engine options for the Micra include two 1.2-litre petrol units. The more basic option produces 79bhp, but the more advanced supercharged DIG-S petrol delivers 97bhp. Both engines are mated to a manual gearbox as standard.The Nissan Micra Limited Edition can be ordered now priced at £12,300. The standard Micra range currently starts at just £9,950.
