The Nissan Pixo, the adorable junior car of their line-up, has had a bit of a spruce-up and this means lower emissions, an improved interior and two new colours. It also means a very appealing starting price of £7,250 for the three-door Visia model.
Even at the top of the range, the Pixo is still priced at just £8,250 for the five-door n-tec variant or £9,150 with an automatic gearbox.
Just in time for summer, the refreshed Pixo has CO2 emissions at just 99g/km making it a tax-friendly motor and one that will get you out of paying London's congestion charge. All engines are 1.0-litre in size with 67bhp.
Inside, the trim is now black rather than grey and on the outside, there are two new metallic colours - Glistening Grey and Midnight Purple, as well as six other colour choices. Coming in as standard across the range is electronic, auto-dimming rear view mirror.
Fuel economy is pretty handy, as you'd expect in a car this cute and compact, with frugal figures for both the manual and automatic transmissions. Combined fuel economy for the five-speed manual is 65.7mpg while the four-speed automatic posts a still-respectable 55.4mpg.
Looks like another worthy competitor in the city car/first car/handy second car market.
