Nissan Evalia India drive - we're the first to give you all the relevant details!

Finally, the Toyota Innova has a true challenger, a job for which the Mahindra Xylo, despite its excellent value proposition, was still found wanting. Yes, the Nissan Evalia is up to it, but not so much that Toyota should be worried. Because as I see it, the market is only going to grow because of the Evalia. Here then is a quick review of this people carrier from Nissan.

1. The Evalia is not that bad looking for a van, especially viewed from the profile and the front three-quarters. It is hugely slab-sided at the back, however. There is a lot of metal for your money, and if you notice it, all rear windows are pretty small. Then of course is the fact that it comes with sliding doors unlike the competition, which makes it very van-like and utilitarian. That image will be hard for Nissan to overcome. Aerodynamics have also played an important role in the way it looks.

2. What is important about the Evalia versus the competition is that it is front-wheel driven. And that is its singular redeeming feature. There are several benefits to this. It will be easy for a person to graduate to from their sedan or hatchback, but FWD also allows for excellent packaging, as it has a flat floor, with the fuel tank placed below the driver's seat.
