Nissan added Kuro and Shiro editions to its UK lineup of Micra city car. These two offer enhanced specification, special paint and trim to cheer up Micra owners.
And they need to be cheered up somehow because the Micra is such a basic car both to look at and to live with, it’s depressing!
The Kuro and Shiro, meaning black and white respectively in Japanese, are based on Acenta specification. The Kuro is painted in Sapphire Black, a brand new metallic colour, and Shiro is available with a choice of two white shades – Pearl or Alabaster. They both feature an ivory-effect dashboard and lighter seat trim.
In terms of equipments, they come with parking sensors with parking space measurement, heated front seats and climate control. Nissan Connect, an integrated satellite navigation system, is available as an option for just £400. Oh, they also come with a special badge placed on the tailgate so you can show it off to those who have a normal Micra!
Engine-wise, they can be had with the 1.2-litre normally-aspirated and new supercharged DIG-S. And price-wise, they start at £11,550.
