    They should have changed gray interiors with dual tone interior. Still the interior looks very dull and this could be a deal breaker for customers in this segment. With city just 50k above, people will go for city for better interior, exterior design, brand image and resale value.

    Still Nissan has not learnt lesson from Toyota Etios failure. If Etios had better interiors, it would be selling double the numbers..

    In my view, Nissan has missed a great opportunity in this segment.

    They also lost hatch segment with their frog looking exterior design. Compare it to Swift or i20 and majority wont like it.

      Hey Aravindji,

      the Liva is a two generation old Yaris. How do you expect a two generation model to have modern interiors?

      there are many restrictions when using old platforms.
