I have been driving Nissan Micra (XL, petrol) for the last 6 years. Bought it in the first couple of months of launch. I have no complaints so far with this car. My usage has been predominantly within the city and its perfect for that. I go for long drives once a year and it is fine. The pick up is the biggest drawback of this car and it's not advisable if you look for power. Hence I have reduced the overall rating by 1 star. In the aspects of mileage it's very good. The braking system i read more 1
I own Nissan Micra Diesel XV. I am one person who has always been fascinated with Japenese cars and when I had the oppurtunity to buy one, without a second thought went for the Micra. Though I won't say other car brands doesn't offer good work but for me, Japanese takes the heart away. Be it in terms of looks, performance and riding it scores the first position. I must appreciate the start feature and security feature of the car. It's great.

The Micra was Nissan’s first made-in-India offering and it was launched in July 2010. At the time of launch, the Nissan Micra was pitted against heavyweights such as the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Ford Figo (both previous-gen). However, the Micra stood out with its never-heard before features such as passive keyless entry with engine push button start-stop, electronically folding ORVMs, auto climate control, and others.
The cheeky and retro-styled Micra was introduced in India soon after its global debut and the automaker’s Chennai-based facility is one of the global production hubs for this model. The Micra’s export (mainly to Europe) started at the same time as it made its Indian debut, and later, it went on to became one of the most exported vehicles from the country. Considering Nissan’s wafer-thin dealer network back then (still growing), the Micra had a fairly decent start in the market.
In 2013, Nissan introduced the Micra facelift, which featured more mature and upmarket styling than the pre-facelift model. Apart from its initial stint, the Micra never really put the sales chart on fire like, say, the first-gen Ford Figo. That said, Nissan has already revealed the next-gen Micra, which is expected to make its Indian debut in some time. Meanwhile, let us see what this Japanese hatchback has to offer presently in the country.

The Nissan Micra has been ageing from a couple of years and the nameplate certainly needs an all-new model to get back in the game.
"Despite being a value packed product, the current Micra has started to show its age and Nissan needs to bring the already revealed new global model to get back in this fiercely competitive space of the Indian automobile market. "
This fact is magnified further in the presence of latest rivals such as the second-gen Ford Figo, facelifted 2017 Hyundai Grand i10 and even the upcoming all-new Maruti Suzuki Swift.
