Two new special Micras have been added to the UK lineup, named Kuro and Shiro.

The two new models are based on the mid grade Acenta specification but feature a number of charms usually reserved for top-of-the-range models.

Both Shiro and Kuro also feature an ivory-effect dashboard and lighter seat trim to add a touch of glamour inside.

Extra equipment includes parking sensors with parking space measurement, heated front seats and climate control. Nissan Connect, an integrated satellite navigation system, is available as an option for just GBP400 (US$622).

As a finishing touch, both Kuro and Shiro will have a special badge placed on the tailgate.

Both Micra engines and transmissions are available in the new models; the 1.2L normally-aspirated and new supercharged DIG-S powerplants with manual or CVT automatic transmissions.

Prices start at GBP11,550 for a 1.2L manual. Order books are open now for both new Micra grades.
