I am not sure how it is in other cities.
I am not seeing many many Micras in Chennai. This might also be because the Micras are produced here and might come of cheap.
But the numbers are more. To an extent, I can say that the number of Micras are more than the Polo in Chennai.
Can I have the status in other cities

I m not sure what your question is. If I read you then in Bangalore there are not many micra's seen but many Polos's are.

Cheers!

For eastern India, the only dealer was in Bhubaneswar until last month. Recently a dealer has opened in Kolkata. Interestingly, although they have petrol models in the showroom, they have only diesel cars for TD. I am waiting to TD a XV petrol for 3 weeks now but no sign yet There are not many Micras on the road either. I myself have seen only 3 so far. Polos are sighted more often.

I have a couple of queries regarding the micra diesel service and costs.First, is the service interval 10000 kms or 6 months?This is a little irritating. Another query is about the cost of spares like the electric folding mirrors, clutch,filters etc.

I remember reading this someplace else as well and specifically checked this with SA as someone in the family is seriously considering Micra. He did mentioned there is no discount on Micra at the moment.

You know what, Nissan has rolled out 1 Lakh Micras so far from the chennai plant.!!!
That is in just a year or so of production.
Guess two-thirds of that must have been exports.

Hi Daewood,
I agree, anyway know what that comment was made some 4 months back.

Nowadays I am seeing Micra very frequently, I see 2-3 micras daily. Thier marketing team must be doing a good job for sure.

GTO, excellent review as always, rated 5*. Although a little late for the party but i guess better late than never for congratulatory messages. Someone in the extended family is looking at Micra hence we test drove it to see how was it like.

How did you find the GC of Micra, i am not sure if this was badly used car. The odo read approx 9K and it was about a six months old and this is not old enough for the suspensions to go bad. The suspension was too soft and we hit almost every speed breaker on our test drive on Sarjapur Road. We also hit the speed breaker close to our apartment complex (which is a tiny one by bangalore standards) which my baleno never scrapes even if i am careless.

my bad..even i didn't know that Nissan crossed the 1 Lakh mark till a couple of weeks back.
Might be these impressive numbers are what has prompted Peugeot to come back to India, and setup a billion dollar plant in Chennai.

The Micra has completed it's first anniversary in India. Sales haven't been rocking the charts, so Nissan is planning a few initiatives in the coming months.

Dr Andy Palmer, executive VP, Nissan India -

Quote:
“We will come out with some initiatives in the next few months for improving awareness and brand building. One major challenge for Micra is lack of awareness about the product, which is well-accepted in several markets globally.”
The awareness about the Nissan Micra in India is very low. Nissan currently sells less than 2000 units of the Micra in India. A major chunk (80%) of the 1 lakh sale milestone of the Micra is from exports.

Very curious to know why Micra diesel hasn't been doing any better. It has the least turbo lag of all D-hatches and most petrol like. Scores high on performance and lighter on the pocket too.
Haven't seen it generating much interest even in this forum.

Two reasons
1. If you go to official site, Nissan claims a price which is 60K more than the actual price. So people get scared, that ex showroom is 6.17 or something, when its actually 5.72(Delhi)
2. Dealer network is pretty thin, so tier two towns which are very gung ho on diesel are left out. People in big cities also do not want to buy something for which they have to drive 30kms for servicing.
