Nissan is donning its Lionel Blairs again and adding a new model to the Flare range. The Primera Flare offers customers big savings and lots of extra equipment thrown in too.

Based on the entry-level S model, the 1.8-litre five-door Primera is priced at just £12,495. That’s a saving of £2360 over the S and it comes with £1800 worth of additional equipment. In addition to the standard six airbags, climate control, electric windows and ABS with EBD, Flare customers also get a colour rear view camera, which makes parking more of a miss than a hit affair, cruise control, rain sensing wipers, front fog lamps and 16″ alloy wheels.

The Flare range also includes the Almera and Tino models that were introduced in April. Both models offer free rear parking sensors and significant customer savings over the S model on which they’re based.
