New Nissan Pixo with reduced emissions and congestion charge exemption

12 June 2012


Nissan's compact city car has been refreshed in time to keep it looking cool for the summer. The new Pixo features fresh exterior colours, an improved interior and, crucially for tax and toll savings - a drop in CO2 emissions to 99g/km. 

And while the Pixo is choc full of features, it’s certainly not flakey. The urban-friendly vehicle combines an efficient three-cylinder engine and compact dimensions to create a small car that's perfect for avoiding those (traffic) cones in the city. 

Changes to the engine tune and aerodynamic improvements have combined to reduce CO2 levels by 4g/km to 99g/km, allowing Pixo to enjoy tax benefits, congestion charge exemption and reduced emissions.

The Pixo will also benefit from enhancements to the car's interior. The door trims around the glovebox and centre console are now black rather than grey to add a touch of class. 

Every Pixo is also now fitted with an electronic auto-dimming rear view mirror – a feature usually reserved for luxury cars!

The perfect topping for any Pixo could be one of the two new metallic colours, Glistening Grey and Midnight Purple. Six other shades are available.

Despite all these features the Pixo’s prices can’t be licked, starting from £7,250 for the Visia and rising to £8,250 for the range-topping n-tec five-door model.
