Nissan has launched a limited edition Micra Urbis, with prices starting from £8495.

This new version has been specially designed to give it an exclusive “urban” look, with titanium finish, tinted front headlamps, a black rear roof spoiler and sculpted front seats in a sporty INDY fabric.

It also includes a free City Pack, worth £1335, that adds 15″ alloy wheels, a rear parking sensor and air conditioning, until the end of March.

Nissan is also giving customers a saving of £855 off the list price, and customers who buy the Micra Urbis before the end of March will receive one year’s free insurance if bought using Preferences (Nissan’s personal contract purchase scheme).

Based on the Micra S, the special edition Urbis is available on the 1.2 petrol and 1.5 dCi 82PS engine variants. It comes with standard features including driver, passenger and side airbags, remote central locking with anti-hijack system, trip computer, and sliding rear seat that splits 60:40.

Customers taking a test drive between 12 and 28 February qualify to enter the free prize draw to win one of 10 luxury European city breaks (either London, Paris, Rome, Brussels or Amsterdam).

Incidentally, Urbis is the Latin word for city.
