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 Wigo

The first thing that makes the Wigo a hit is its compact structure. While it is agile and easy to manoeuvre around the city, it makes parking in crunch places cakewalk for the driver whether experienced or amateur. As a driver, you don’t have to possess expert car parking skills because you’d be able to park it just right every single time.

A potent drivetrain under the hood that performs quite well. Aside from these, there are plenty of interior features and amenities that will impress you. This includes touchscreen infotainment system, multi-function steering wheel, ABS, dual-airbags and an array of storage spaces for stress-free travelling.

With satisfactory outside looks, the automaker has taken the style game to an altogether another level with the TRD variant. This variant comes with a TRD body kit that comprises of a front lip spoiler, TRD decals, side skirts, rear bumper extension with a diffuser and a rear chrome badge.

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 The instrument console and center console feels outdated, while at the same time, the grey color scheme for interiors makes the cabin feel a bit dull.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

Being a cheap contender in the segment, the Wigo comes with less durable materials inside the cabin. The cabin lacks premium touch you’d expect from Toyota. Interestingly, there are no air bands for the windscreen and foot.

Fuel economy is below par considering the market standards. Expect it to yield around 9 -11kmpl in the city.
