The Mirca isn't an all new car, and it does not pretend to be. Changes to the outside are minimal, and Nissan has given the car a few more features with hope to revive it's growth. Ignis is an all new car, in the prime of its lifecycle, the Grand i10 on the other hand received minor updates recently. So, does the Nissan Micra have a trick up its sleeve to take on the more well-established rivals? We find out.
Among all, Maruti Ignis is the tallest and offers a tall-boy design, making ingress and egress easy. Micra has the longest wheelbase which should also make it most roomy. Micra has least ground clearance at 163mm, so if you are not careful, you might find yourself scratching it's belly. Ignis sits highest from the ground, and at 180mm and it is the best in this regard.
Ignis with its AMT transmission option is certainly the best package overall, as it has got something for every kind of buyer. You don't get a manual petrol in case of Micra and diesel seems under powered. Hyundai Grand i10 offers a traditional automatic with four gears while there's no option of diesel automatic.
Ignis is also the best in terms of safety equipment that it has to offer, as you get ABS, EBD and two airbags as standard. A touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Navigation support is present in case of Grand i10 and Ignis. Micra however does not offer a touchscreen system. You also do not get rear-view parking camera in case of the Micra. Higher variants of the Micra gets Brake Assist feature, which is not present in case of other two.
