Nissan have released prices for the new highly advanced Nissan Micra DIG-S. This latest model offers the performance of a bigger petrol engine but with the fuel economy of a diesel.
The ultra low emission 1.2 litre three cylinder supercharged petrol engine emits only 95g/km for the Nissan Micra Visia version and 99g/km for the better equipped Acenta and Tekna models. Official fuel consumption is 68.9mpg or 65.7mpg on the combined cycle, beating some similarly sized diesel models. Unlike most economy models though, the DIG-S also has a performance boost, with power rising from 80PS to 98PS.
The Nissan Micra DIG-S costs just £1,000 more than the equivalent, non-supercharged version; much less than the price premiums charged by many rivals for equivalent diesel versions. Owners will also see savings at the pumps, with diesel currently averaging 4.1p per litre more than petrol.
The new highly advanced Nissan Micra DIG-S version will be on sale from 1st September with prices starting at £11,150.
