PIXO FILLS SMALL URBAN CAR ROLE
NISSAN produces the Pixo citycar in partnership with Suzuki, drawing on that marque's considerable small car expertise. It's not the trendiest offering around but it should fill the small urban car role very nicely for most buyers with its roomy cabin and now even more economical 1.0-litre petrol engine.
With this engine the Pixo will be no ball of fire but owners will gain tangible benefits in terms of running costs.
The Pixo is a compact proposition but there's no need for major sacrifices in terms of passenger or luggage carrying capacity. The Pixo will seat four adults in reasonable comfort and still offers a 129-litre luggage bay that can increase to 367 litres with the seats folded down.
Inside, the controls are chunky and simple to operate in the best Nissan tradition and the stereo is well designed with nicer finishes than you'll encounter elsewhere.

A wide, deep pocket on the passenger side takes the place of a glovebox, providing useful storage, and there's a neat illuminated shelf in the centre console where you can stick your mobile phone or wallet in the spotlight.
The Pixo's base variant isn't the most luxurious conveyance around, but buyers do get a CD stereo, power steering, ABS and a couple of airbags.
The Pixo has done a decent job in the Nissan range of filling the citycar-sized gap beneath the company's Micra and Note models.
It's a comparatively straightforward small car package that lacks the design innovation and fashion sense we've seen from other offerings in the sector but it makes up for that with decent practicality, low pricing and miniscule running costs.
