Suraj Sathe asks the community which car he should buy: the Nissan Micra XE Plus or the Hyundai i10 Magna 1.1.

He has a budget of Rs. 4.50 lakh and wants to purchase a car now since most car manufacturers are offering discounts on their products in November. This is going to be his first car and he is open to other alternatives as well.

question of the day

The Nissan Micra XE returns a mileage of 18 kmpl and costs Rs. 4.10 lakh in Delhi, the Hyundai i10 1.1 iRDe Magna returns a mileage of 20 kmpl and costs Rs. 4.03 lakh in Delhi. It is hence evident that the Hyundai i10 will not only work out to be cheaper by a few thousand rupees but will also be more fuel efficient.

Suraj can also consider the Hyundai i10 1.2L Kappa Magna which will costs him Rs. 4.20 ex-showroom Delhi. The i10 1.2 produces 79 bhp of power compared to the i10 1.1 which makes only 68 bhp of power. The Nissan Micra makes 75 bhp of power which is 7 bhp more than the i10 1.1 but is 3 bhp less than the i10 1.2 Magna.

Other options Suraj can consider are the Maruti Ritz LXI which costs Rs. 4.03 lakh, the Honda Brio SMT which costs Rs. 4.35 lakh and even the Volkswagen Polo 1.2 Trendline if he can stretch his budget as it costs Rs. 4.57 lakh etc. What car would you suggest for Suraj?

  1. Go for Hyundai I 10 1.2L (A.S.S and resale value for hyumdai cars is better den micra and also fuel economy) or else polo or Brio……..keep micra as a last option..

  2. it depends on a lot of aspects while the i10 is extremely smooth and gearshifts are effortless the micra is a tad bit more peppy I personally found the micra s buid quality better and more spacious with good underthigh support and leg room is also a little more than i10 , the suspension of the i10 is a little too soft and the micra is a very rev happy car 20kmpl is not wat i10 returns u can expec

  3. micra xe……..whwn u have quality engineering why u wana go for korean scrap…….both have same kind of expenses on services…… 1 of my known got his i10’s pressure plate replaced in 19000+

  4. em nt sure abt nisaan micra……………… in ma view i10 1.2 is better option………………… micra is new in the market and on other hand i10 is well established………..and if u want something new among your friends den u should seriously think abt micra atleast once……….

  5. Hyundai i10 1.2! (Tried and tested, One cracker of an engine, ASS, Resale).
    Further Micra has an ace up its sleeve when it comes to space! So just in case you are looking at a roomier hatch then it might just fight the bill! Else I’d ask you to go in for i10 of the given options! You may get some dealer discount too for it being a petrol car!
    Though if you can stretch your budget a bit then I woul

  6. I think Maruti suzuki Ritz is the good option for u……..In ritz u can all things more power, more mileage, best after sale service, low maintainance cost and good resale value…… extend your budget li’l bit u will get a good car………………the second option is the honda Brio the ultimate performance car….

  7. go for i10 1.2 or wait for i10 LPG Hyundai launched next month it give more mileage u need.. spares are cheaper when compare to other brands.
