    It’s a great car to start @57.5K for a manual transmission with even the cvt for 1.6 sounds good. Can eat up a good share of this most desired segment of UAE!

    Very good Nissan brought this model here. The market needed some alternative for toyota corolla. Without any competition afm will sell you a basic car for a high price. Now, nisssan lifts up the challange expecially because it puts more airbags and features such as rear camera which you dont find in corolla.
