Good solid practical spacious cars in your consideration set in your car budget of under 8 lacs. Two very competent sedans Sunny and Indigo Manza from Nissan and Tata Motors respectively. You can't go wrong in your choice
Best Diesel Sedan upto 8 Lacs, Indigo Manza or Nissan Sunny diesel ?
Whilst Nissan Sunny seems to be a great car and at great price, I would like to avoid it for following reasons.
Service reach is too low and one would be dependent on few dealers for some time to come and that might make servicing these cars an expensive proposition.
If you travel a lot out of your city where a dealership is located, then you might face some difficulty in terms of service in smaller cities or on road.
Nissan is just the manufacturer, whilst rest of the operation is being handled by Indian entrepreneur. We are sure Nissan would have done due diligence before appointing them, hopefully this should not be an issue.
Manza is great choice – great price, space and mileage. Only problem, it starts making noises very soon.
