From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Nissan Almera

The Nissan Almera might belong to the most entry-level price point of compact sedans. However, given its nice length and wheelbase dimensions, the Almera has a good road presence with longer footprints on the surface. Thanks to this road presence, the Nissan Almera has got the aura of a ‘big car’ which a person generally upgrading from a compact hatchback to a sedan demands from his new bigger car.

Thanks to a much longer wheelbase, the Nissan Almera offers best in class rear seat experience, which some of the sedans from one category could also not provide. With great legroom and knee room and good under-thigh support, the rear passengers are being offered good comfort levels in the Almera.

With a bigger focus on comfort for the passengers, the Nissan Almera also is praiseworthy for the plush ride quality it offers. The suspension is on a softer side, which works wonders while driving over broken sections of the tarmac.

Toyota Vios

Compared to the previous generation model, the new Toyota Vios manages to look fresh with a very contemporary upgrade in terms of exterior looks. The busier looking front end, along with flowing theme for the side profile and curvy tail lamps make it look fresh and very much updated.

The new Toyota Vios definitely feels premium and upgraded on the inside as well, as it feels bigger, more comfortable and richer in terms of comfort and convenience features. The introduction of a couple of more premium features from Corolla as well as roof-mounted AC vents does score full marks in pampering the inner occupants.

Being a pioneer of safety, the Toyota Vios is feature-packed when it comes to being equipped with safety features. Things like seven airbags, panoramic view monitor, blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert, tire pressure monitoring system and hill start assist are some features which are still not available in the competition.

Nissan Almera

While the Nissan Almera has the stance and dimensions of a big sedan, the interior cabin design, fit and finish are something which dulls out the overall experience. The dashboard feels low rent with a dated design, while at the same time, the choice of materials also feel as if they are built to cost.

Despite being positioned as a sedan which offers a suitable upgrade from a compact hatchback, the Nissan Almera lacks a number of premium features which nowadays are present in all of their competitors. Features like LEDs and a modern touch screen infotainment system are some things which are considered a necessity in a sedan, and the Nissan Almera lacks a number of them.

The 1.5-litre petrol engine in the Nissan Almera lacks the punch and feels dull when revved hard. The engine gets its job done, but the driving enthusiasts might not be impressed with its boring power delivery.

 

Toyota Vios

While Toyota has tried to make things look exciting, the overall performance levels from the powertrain doesn’t feel that enticing. The 1.5-litre petrol engine which powers the Toyota Vios neither is too involving to drive with its boring power delivery, nor it excels too much with its average fuel economy.

While the steering setup is soft and convenient for daily city driving, it does not feel too much connected with the driver, which might be a turn off for many driving enthusiasts.
