Nissan is following in the footsteps of Madonna and Kate Moss by launching its own limited edition fashion collection with Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the Micra and Micra C+C – the CHIC. Nissan will donate £200 from the sale of every CHIC to the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign.
Only 500 CHIC models will be made and 220 Micra CHICs will feature an exclusive body colour – Waterfall Green – to match this year’s Fashion Targets logo. 280 Micra C+C CHICs will also be available in either Nero black or silver metallic, except for a one-off Waterfall Green model which one lucky fashionista can win, simply by taking a test drive in any model in the Nissan range before 31 July.
The lucky first 600 people taking a test drive will also walk away with a bottle of designer perfume – a lot of fun behind the wheel and a little dab behind the ears, all for free.
The Micra CHIC is based on the Sport and comes with a 1.2-litre petrol engine, five doors and the distinctive Waterfall Green exterior body colour. The Micra C+C CHIC is also based on the Sport model and comes with the more agile 1.6-litre petrol engine. Both models come with manual air-conditioning, sporty styling inside and out, alloy-effect protective entry guards and 16-inch graphite coloured alloy wheels as standard. The Micra C+C CHIC also comes with a windstop, so no “Bridget Jones” hair-raising moments to worry about.
Prices for the CHIC start from £10,495 for five-door model rising to £13,250 for the C+C version, a saving of £1000 over the C+C Sport.
