BOTTOMLINE

 

Nissan’s Micra Active has superior all-round visibility that is

slightly marred by the thick C-pillar. It has bulbous outcrops

flanking the bonnet and this makes it a rarity among modern cars where

the bonnet is almost never visible and this makes parking in tight

spots extremely easy. Micra Active lives up to its tagline ‘drive

easy, live better’.

Active’s front seats are quite comfortable but the same can’t be said

about the rear bench. Though legroom is adequate, the seats severely

lack thigh support, and that makes it the car with the least

comfortable rear bench and not the best one to be chauffeur-driven in.

Surprisingly, its competitor.
