A month after Nissan confirmed the Juke Kiiro – a special version of the family crossover – it has added the trim to the Micra line-up.
As part of the makeover, yellow trim accents have been added to the Micra’s exterior, with this accompanied by textured Kiiro branded stickers on the car’s C-pillars.
The bright highlights appear on the front and rear bumper and along the bottom of the doors and contrast with the ‘Echo Grey’ body colour, 17-inch gloss black alloy wheels and rear privacy glass.
Kiiro models add a number of new cabin features as well. Based on the regular car’s ‘Acenta’ trim, the new derivative benefits from the firm’s ‘Vision Pack’ which includes rear parking sensors, automatic air conditioning and rear power windows.
Inside, the 7-inch multimedia display features ‘NissanConnect’ meaning Apple and Android smartphone integration, and TomTom satellite navigation with live traffic updates. Automatic headlights is another convenience add-on that is included in the price.
The interior doesn’t get the unique touches found in the Juke Kiiro, however, so there is no yellow stitching or Kiiro badges to be found.
Just one powertrain choice is available in the form of a 99bhp, 1-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol with either a 5-speed manual or an automatic CVT gearbox.
Now available to order, the Micra Kiiro range starts at £18,375 for the manual and £19,275 for an automatic, with the Juke equivalent priced from £24,350.
Nissan says the raft of styling changes amount to “a design-focused special version which features contemporary and eye-catching details”, adding: “Micra is the ideal city car and the Kiiro Special Edition gives it an exciting and attention grabbing new look.”
The Kiiro – Japaense for yellow – has been created as part of the automaker’s promotional partnership with ‘The Batman’. Fronted by Robert Pattison, the film makes its cinematic debut at the beginning of next month.
