True, Also attach comparison pictures between Brio and Micra Active.


I would definitely recommend you the Micra Active, Reasons:

Better Agility

Better Ride quality

More large and more space at the rear

More boot space.

Cheers,

Achyuth

Have booked the Micra Active XE from Ritu Nissan , Thane .

This car is for my wife and i like the overall packaging of the Micra Active and the Dealership experience while checking the Car was very good.

I prefer the old Micra Look, especially the Nissan Logo on the Bonnet and not on the Grill that the Facelift has .

Delivery is in 20 days as per the dealer.

I just did a TD of the micra active and seriously considering buying it for my parents. But while braking there was a tug on the gear lever. Is this common in micra ? I dint ike the shift either, its not very precise like brio, ritz etc. Can any existing micra customer confirm if this is common ? And also the GC of 154 cm is scaring me. Otherwise the car seemed ok.

Yes the tug happens, it is pretty common, it happens even in my Sunny. The gearshift too is pretty but it gets slick at the long term, Go ahead and buy the Micra Active!

Sorry for the short post, was pressed for time. Received a call saying my variant was not being produced anymore (see the link above with this text: The production of Nissan Micra Active XE has been stopped and they cannot deliver the vehicle to us. 2. Nissanindia Facebook site)

Was told I could upgrade to XV by paying 60000/= more or cancel my booking. I opted for the latter.

Does anyone know why the manufacture of some variants are being stopped?

What is with this stopping of Active XE model and parts unavailability on the Facebook link provided above?

Is there a real issue with parts unavailability? If yes, why is it so? Any insider info?

Had a test drive of the brio last weekend. The biggest plus point of the brio is the engine and the rear seat which is definitely better than the micra active.
The test drive vehicle had a very hard clutch, I was told since its 40K kms and is abused, the clutch is this hard and its not the case with new cars.

The plus point towards the micra: the driving position of micra is spot on and everyone who drove it seemed to be very comfortable with it. The ride is ages ahead and is not as harsh as brio. Boot space also tilts the decision to Micra's favour.

To top it all, the attitude of magnum honda was the deal breaker to me. First of all they were not very keen on selling the EX, and after the test drive, they said they have the silver colour only, take it or leave it! No option to book the car either -- Case closed.

The only confusion is whether this car will serve me for atleast 10 years (In this aspect I cannot think beyond Maruti Suzuki )

Got delivery of my turquoise blue micra active xe on 21st august. As of today have done 475km with a single full tank and the fuel indicator shows 2bars left and range of 42kms. Avg shown on MID is 14kmpl. Wife has done most of the driving and with full AC within city . I Had challenged her to keep the avg on MID above 14kmpl which she has so far managed.

My other car is a 4.5yr old linea which I have clocked 87000+ km

Micra positives are :
1.the looks
2. fuel economy
3. Good build quality and fittings (active xe costs just 4.07lacs OTR)

Negatives :
1.gear shift never feels smooth
2. Engine noise very prominent
3. 13" wheels

Overall, happy with the small beauty as it does what it was bought for and in a cute little package.

When I was at the dealership to take delivery of my car, my sales contact told me that Micra active now has a waiting period of 8 months . I was shocked to hear that. I asked him why are you guys sitting here? Just to inform people that no more bookings for micra? Why would nissan launch a car and then not produce enough to deliver?

Now,as i understand, it's a planned strategy to have an entry level base cost that's mouth-watering enough to get the customers to the showroom. Next thing is to ask you to upgrade or cancel as waiting period is suddenly very long.

Ford is right now doing exactly the same in a bigger way with the success of ecosport. No one's going to see the 5.6 lac ecosport

Yeah dude.u r right. I never thought that way. Thanks.
Still I believe Indian customers are smart enough to cancel the booking and go home with a tainted Nissan image. I think its a reason why Maruti is the market leader.
