Great Value for Money Car
I was in the market to buy a value for money car, within a budget of 6 lacs. After test driving almost every car in the market, I narrowed down on the Honda Brio and Nissan Micra. I wasn't going for Maruti or Hyundai models due to their poor build quality in this budget - evident from the extremely poor Euro NCAP crash test results.The pros of this Car?(+) Premium fit and finish: the interiors are not the most good looking but they do look like they will last for a long time.(+) Looks: Okay some people consider the car to be feminine-looking, but I actually like the looks. The dominance of round/circular elements in the design have lead to her name - Bubbles!(+) excellent interior quality + space: 1.5 years/25,000 kms and no rattles or squeaks absolutely.(+) good handling, ride quality: easily takes in most potholes/road problems, unlike most other cars in this range that bottom out.(+) no compromise on safety features: Airbags, ABS, Electronic Brake Distribution, Brake Assist = 4/5 star EuroNcap rating.(+) easy on maintenance: Have not spent more than 3000 rupees on any servicing visits to the authorised dealership.(+)Mileage: I return more than 13kmpl, in the worst of Delhi-Gurgaon office traffic.Now for the Cons:(-) The tyres: a wider set of tyres (175/185 instead of the current 165s) can help further improve comfort and handling. Will be upgrading as soon as I am done with the original set. Also, Alloys are not even an option on the top model!(-) Not the most fun car to drive: This is a car built to be driven sedately. The engine is just not tuned/doesn't have the energy to be driven fast.Most people would not consider the car because they don't know Nissan. But if you can overlook that lack of Brand recognition, this is a great car to go for. Also, Nissan has been making serious efforts to improve in the areas of service and customer relationship. I've seen a marked improvement since the time I bought the car.
