Nissan Sunny gets Impul body kit in Malaysia
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
Nissan Malaysia’s official Facebook page had teased few images of Nissan Sunny (called as Almera in some markets including Malaysia) with Impul body kits, before revealing the sporty creation.
Impul is an aftermarket body kit, engine component and wheel manufacturing firm that was founded by Nissan’s factory driver Mr. Kazuyoshi Hoshino and the company caters specifically to Nissan.

The sketches of the car were teased by Nissan Malaysia before the revealing. The sketches were accompanied by the text: “Coming up..Exclusive preview for Nissan Malaysia Facebook Fans”.
The front fascia of the car comes with Impul designed front grill and a sharp sporty extension of the front bumper. The side gets aerodynamic skirts and mean looking alloy wheels.
The rear bumper too gets skirts alongside a diffuser. The boot lid houses a spoiler which works well to reduce the awkward look of the Sunny’s large rear overhang.

If you didn’t know, the Nissan Sunny was officially previewed in Malaysia earlier this month. The car is imported there as a CKD and is available in three trim levels namely E, V and VL. The Malaysian version is powered by the 1.5 litre petrol engine which puts out 102 PS.
The festive season in India is a right time for Nissan India to slip in such exclusive products perhaps as limited edition models, just like other car makers. Right now Nissan is one of the very few manufacturers who has no plans for Diwali, other than going after target customers for the Evalia.
