With the onset of the festive season, carmakers have started rolling out special editions of their cars. Nissan too launched Micra's Fashion Edition in collaboration with United Colors of Benetton at Rs 6.09 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It is based on the Micra's XL CVT trim and gets two new shades - Fashion Black and Fashion Orange
As the name suggests, the Micra Fashion makes a bold statement and is easily distinguishable from the stock Nissan Micra. On the exterior, it gets designer body graphics with ‘Micra’ decals, black wheel covers with orange inserts and bold designer stripes on the ORVMs (outside rear view mirror). The cabin is done up in orange with piano black finishes, European black-coloured seats with orange stitching, designer floor mats and Benetton signature headrests.
Additionally, it features a 6.2-inch touchscreen with audio-visual navigation through phone mirroring and NissanConnect, Nissan’s integrated information and communication platform that enhances the driving experience by connecting with smartphones. Launched last month, the NissanConnect system includes a host of convenience, navigation and safety applications. It comes with a three-year free service package.
The new Nissan Micra Fashion is only available with a 1.2-litre petrol option. Linked to a 5-speed CVT transmission, it pumps out max power of 77PS at 6000rpm and a peak torque of 104Nm at 4400rpm. It returns an impressive fuel economy of 19.34kmpl.
Besides, the first 500 customers of the Fashion Edition will be getting exclusive Benetton personal accessories such as belts and designer wallets for both men and women.
