Conclusion – While the Nissan Evalia is not the most striking MPV on Indian roads, it is a very practical vehicle. Armed with a very fuel efficient engine and acres of space, the Evalia has huge potential among the large families in India. Nissan will price the Evalia right between the Xylo and Innova. While Mahindra sold 2401 units of the Xylo last month, Toyota managed to sell 6678 units of the Innova. Clearly the MPV segment has huge potential and the Evalia is here to take its fair share of the pie. As an MPV, the Evalia ticks all the right boxes and if priced right, it will definitely do what the Duster did for Renault.
