What do we think about Nissan Micra Active?

Nissan’s Micra Active has superior all-round visibility that is slightly marred by the thick C-pillar. It has bulbous outcrops flanking the bonnet and this makes it a rarity among modern cars where the bonnet is almost never visible and this makes parking in tight spots extremely easy. Micra Active lives up to its tagline ‘drive easy, live better’.
Active’s front seats are quite comfortable but the same can’t be said about the rear bench. Though legroom is adequate, the seats severely lack thigh support, and that makes it the car with the least comfortable rear bench and not the best one to be chauffeur-driven in. Surprisingly, its competitor - Wagon R despite its small dimensions, has a very comfortable back bench. But Micra leaves competition far behind with respect to the smoothness its engine offers. Throttle response at low revs and on part-throttle is incredible in Micra Active. The Micra relies on the most traditional engineering trick through the ages – weight reduction. Hence, despite the lack of outright horsepower, the light Active doesn’t feel bogged down. The best way to drive this car is to keep the engine spinning at low to moderate engine speeds, as after 4,500rpm, the engine starts to get a bit gruff. Also, it gets a bit noisy after 2,500rpm and there is a pronounced transmission whine in the first two gears. It is priced between 3.5 L and 4.8 L. The price range is wide and variants can be chosen by striking a balance of pocket ease and performance. The on-road price, post the applicable taxes, insurance and other charges, differs across States. Nissan Micra Active is a scintillating amalgamation of performance and pleasure. It is refreshingly spacious and easy on the pocket for what it offers. The engine is perfect for intra-city driving and the high manoeuvrability makes it a tremendously covetable car. The visibility is incredible and parking is a cakewalk. Its high fuel-efficiency will keep you on a move without a drop of sweat. If free is your way to live, & your heart has only love to give, We have for you – Micra Active !
