Japanese automobile company Nissan Motor Company approached Indian market with Nissan Micrato increase the competition with existing and new small cars. While General Motor’s Chevrolet Beatis popular among youngsters, Micra is a latest hatchback from Nissan Motors to make long drive easy and comfortable for a family of five.
Though both cars look great to drive, but a thorough analysis will help you to choose the best. Now, I am going to give you a tour of both the cars, inside and outside so that you can pick a good one.
Engine and Mileage:
The Chevrolet Beat is covered with 1199cc four-cylinder petrol engine that turns out 80.5 PS of power and 108 Nm of torque. Mileage of 18km/Ltr is sufficient to convince that this trendy hatch back is an extraordinary four wheeler.
The Micra’s charming exterior on the other hand is furnished with 1198cc three-cylinder petrol engine gives output of 76PS @ 6000rpm and 104Nm @ 4000rpm. It gives a mileage is 15 km/L which is not bad.
After comparing the engine specifications and fuel efficiency, the Beat leads because of higher power productivity compared to Nissan Micra.
Nissan Micra leads here with Length = 3780mm, Width = 1665mm Width, Height = 1530 vs. Chevrolet Beat’s Length = 3595mm, Width =1595mm, Height = 1520.
It will thrill your eyes after seeing the exterior style of both hatchbacks. While Nissan Micra seems to be more delightful to a mature person, The Chevrolet Beat is a youth icon. While Nissan’s rounded curves give it an elegant looks, the Chevrolet beat’s sharper and straight lined make it a youth icon. Both have a special image. For a youngster, Chevrolet Beat may be more tempting whereas to an adult person (may be office going person), the grace of Nissan Micra may be more appealing than Beat.
I have read somewhere that: If you want to impress your son, go for the Beat. If you want to impress your colleagues, the Nissan Micra it is!

I know price always matters when it comes to purchase a car. Micra seems to be expensive if it is compared to Beat.
It is a time to announce the decision. It is proved that beat wins the race with powerful engine, Fuel efficiency and price but Micra manages to keep itself in the queue with low weight engine and Dimensions.

I can be wrong if I elect Beat to be the winner but yes you cannot ignore the Nissan Micra’s style and Japan’s technology. It is a time for you to choose the best. Share your views/comments with me.
