The Nissan Micra Elle offers more kit, new colours and a panoramic roof

Nissan has teamed up with fashion magazine Elle to create a new limited-edition version of the Micra supermini, and it has been unveiled at the Paris Motor Show.

The Micra Elle adds extra equipment, new body colours and special badging, and will be limited to just 500 cars in the UK.

It's based on the mid-range Micra Acenta, which features air conditioning, keyless entry and cruise control as standard.

The Elle model adds a panoramic glass roof, 15-inch alloy wheels, chrome trim on the grille and a roof spoiler, while the interior gets chrome door handles, new seat upholstery and the Nissan Connect sat-nav and infotainment system is available as an option.

There's also special Elle badging on the tailgate and front wings, front floor mats and front door guards.

Buyers will have the choice of two engines – the 79bhp 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, or the supercharged 1.2-litre DIG-S model, which develops 97bhp and emits 99g/km of CO2. There will also be a choice of three colours: Shiraz Red, Alabaster White and Atlas Blue.

The Nissan Micra Elle is on sale now, with prices starting from £12,000.
