From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
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.

Toyota Vios

Toyota Vios impresses with its under the bonnet capabilities. The NR-series engine is touted to be economical and performance-oriented. The new resonator noodle ensures quietness inside the cabin. Additionally, wind and road noises have been kept under control.

The interiors render a pleasant look - well laid out dash and centre console, softer plastic panels and adequate storage spaces. The auto climate control makes drive joyous for not only front but rear passengers as well. Even on the hottest of days, the air conditioning works quite well.

Safety has been enhanced too. The steering on the Vios is a lot steadier and firmer than before. The suspension is good to bypass bumps and uneven surfaces. This ensures a comfortable driving experience. The Vios now features electronic stability control, hill start assist and ISOFIX child seat anchors as standard.

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 The instrument console and center console feels outdated, while at the same time, the grey color scheme for interiors makes the cabin feel a bit dull.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.

 

Toyota Vios

The A/C vent cupholders have been removed which served well on long routes. There is no front armrest. Back seats could have been comfier like in the case of Suzuki Ciaz and Honda City.
