Nissan Sunny XV Vs Maruti Suzuki SX4 ZXi

Maruti Suzuki SX4 now an old player with good amount of market share is a Good value for money. Recently, Nissan also launched its sedan, which was speculated until launched that it will compete with the likes of Toyota Etios and Maruti Suzuki Dzire, but surprisingly Nissan placed the top variant of Sunny, XV was launched at Rs 7.68 Lac. No, it is not overpriced it’s just that the market underestimated the features that Nissan could offer. Everybody forgot that the Japanese car maker manufactures some high end luxury sedans like Nissan Teana and has the capability to make an upmarket sedan.

Maruti Suzuki SX4 though is a value for money, with Maruti’s brand name offering high resale value, low maintenance and after sales cost, high ground clearance and good quality built. Nissan Sunny, whose highest variant competes with Maruti Suzuki SX4, has the best of the features in its class, thus we can say with the amount of money you are spending to buy a sedan, you will get maximum features. Also, the car has ample rear seat legroom, which is even more when compared to sedans like Corolla and Civic. Though the headroom in rear seat is a little less.  

The SX4’s audio system is better than the Sunny’s though and it also offers a USB port to play music from pen drives, which the Sunny doesn’t. But then the Sunny goes on to add other comfort features like powered rear vents (for better air circulation), push-button start, true-keyless entry (you just have to carry the key in your pocket) and power-folding rear-view mirrors. The multi-info display on the Sunny also doles out more information than the SX4 (which only shows temperature and time). The Sunny shows you average fuel consumption, instant fuel consumption, distance to empty, time and trip-meters.
