This is the Nissan Sunny facelift (Nissan Versa/Nissan Almera if you’re living somewhere in the United States/Malaysia).

Nissan Sunny facelift front

Introduced at the 2010 Guangzhou Auto Show, the Sunny has been given its mid-life refresh and the images you see here come from China where the refreshed Sunny could go on sale first. The Chinese media are claiming a debut at the Chengdu Auto Show in September with sales expected to start by the end of the year. India and other markets should probably get it by early next year.

Nissan Sunny rear facelift

So what are the changes we are talking about? At the rear, the chrome strip is now bigger while the design of the bumper has been tweaked a bit. The sides of the car remain the same save for the alloy wheel’s design. The front of the car is where most of the changes seem to be.

When we spoke to Etienne Henry, Nissan’s senior product planner at the Geneva Motor Show this year, this is what he had to say on the Micra and Sunny facelifts -

What we intend to do with these products, Micra and Sunny, is to bring more character and more personality to the vehicle. And that’s the first direction. Another element is to bring more refinement and more premium-ness to the interior. These are the two key drivers for lifecycle activity of this product. You can expect some design changes – exterior, interior – as well as some new technology to come and support the car.

    That’s just a rendering from the website, it”s not a spyshot. Why can’t they conceal the design

    Still doesn’t seem to be a very congruous design!
    Nissan has to throw in more lines to the body in order to attract younger buyers in the market.
