Nissan Almera

The Nissan Almera has been positioned along with the likes of smaller sedans and premium hatchbacks in terms of price, but despite this, the Almera feels long and big. The best-in-class length and wheelbase do give the Nissan Almera a much premium stance for its price.

Apart from imparting a great road presence, the best-in-class length and wheelbase also impart incredible rear-seat space. The knee room and legroom of the back seat of the Nissan Almera feel even better than some of the cars from one and two segments above.

Suzuki Swift Dzire

Despite having a sub-four-meter design which is normally perceived to be claustrophobic for a sedan, the new Dzire feels roomy and spacious on the inside, thanks to a brilliant in cabin design engineering. The seats are positioned a bit low, with enough legroom and knee room giving the new Dzire a great back seat experience for a car of this size and price. Also, at 378 liters, the boot space of the Dzire feels great for a sub-four-meter sedan.

The sub-four-meter sedans usually are not so good examples of looks and design, with disproportionate silhouette being an issue with them. However, Suzuki has done a tremendous job by giving the Dzire a proportionate design on the outside, with the boot lid design not looking as if it is chopped off.

Suzuki cars are usually well known for their well-balanced powertrains which offer a good mix of performance, refinement, and fuel efficiency. The new Suzuki Dzire too feels the same by offering the best in class fuel economy.

Nissan Almera

The big dimensions do give the Nissan Almera a big car feel on the outside as well as inside in terms of space. However, the cabin layout feels boring and dated. The instrument console and center console feels outdated, while at the same time, the grey color scheme for interiors makes the cabin feel a bit dull.

The 1.5-liter petrol engine which powers the Nissan Almera sound powerful on paper, however, the engine feels lethargic and lazy while on the move. Also, the engine isn’t too good on the front of fuel efficiency, which might be a turn off for those family-oriented buyers who are looking for an economic car to upgrade from an entry-level hatchback.

At a time when even entry-level hatchbacks are stuffed with premium and contemporary features, the absence of features like a modern touch screen infotainment system and LED elements in headlights and tail lamps to make it feel simple for a car of its price.

Suzuki Swift Dzire

While the 5-speed manual gearbox has great shifts and feels responsive, the same cannot be said about the AMT gearbox which is offered as an option along with it. The 5-speed automatic gearbox with which the new Suzuki Dzire is blessed with offers good convenience for daily commutes. However, the gearbox feels jerky when revved hard, which dilutes the driving experience a bit.

The steering feels light and convenient for daily driving duties. However, on higher speeds, the steering feels a bit lifeless by being lesser responsive and not weighing enough when speed rises, making it feel less connected to the driver.
