Whitley, Warwickshire, 13 December 2012.

The Black & White LE takes the specification of the existing S model and adds further features to raise the levels of comfort, convenience and contemporary good looks. On the outside the front grille, side vents and door handles have a distinctive gloss black finish ? shared with the Dynamic model ? plus split-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels. True to its name, the exterior paint choices are Santorini Black metallic or solid Fuji White, with a metallic shade offered at no additional cost. Privacy glass is also fitted as standard and the headlamp units include daytime running lights with a signature arrangement of LEDs.
The cabin displays the new console that debuted in the 2013 model, and is finished with a smart Ebony black cloth upholstery. Bluetooth connectivity and a cover for the rear loadspace are also part of the Black & White LE package.
