  • Entry-level 1.2-litre 3 cylinder produces power and torque figures of 80PS at 6,000 rpm and 110Nm at 4,000 rpm. This translates to combined fuel economy of 4.7 l/100km (21.27km/l)

    Looks as long as Ertiga. I’m sure, in India we may manage to kick 2 more seats to make it an MPV. By the way, on what cycle the mileage is determined.

    Why is Nissan not bringing this vehicle to India? Instead of the mediocre looking Nissan Micra, they should bring cars like this to India.
