13.6.2012 Nissan launches new 65.7 mpg Pixo
Nissan has released a revised version of their Pixo city car with CO2 emissions lowered to 99g/km – instantly translating to lower running costs by becoming eligible for zero road tax and congestion charge payments.
Fine adjustments to engine tuning and aerodynamic improvements have combined to allow Nissan to reduce CO2 emissions by 4g/km, enough to bring the official figure below the 100g/km threshold. These tweaks also translate to improved fuel efficiency from the already frugal 3-cylinder engine.
According to the official test cycle, the new combined fuel economy figure is up to 65.7mpg for manual versions – this rises to 74.3 for extra-urban driving and drops to 54.3 mpg for city driving. These figures are slightly worse for automatic models.
The compact city car is great for city driving, being small enough to manoeuvre into tighter parking spaces but large enough to comfortably carry passengers and luggage. Improvements have been made to the interior styling, giving a fresh and modern touch.
The Pixo is now available in a total of eight colours, including two new metallic tones – Glistening Grey and Midnight Purple.
Despite the addition of a range of new features and considerably reduced running costs, the Pixo's prices remain low, starting at £7,250 for the Visia version and rising to £8,250 for the range-topping n-tec five-door model.
