The Sunny NISMO gets a full bodykit and uprated springs and dampers.

The changes in the refreshed sedan are identical to the Indian model launched last year: redesigned headlights, a new grille and bumper, new alloy wheels, a new steering wheel, a piano black center console and revised seat trims. The Malaysian model also gets a 6.5-inch touchscreen Android-based navigation system.

All variants are powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine capable of 102 PS (100.56 bhp) and 139 Nm of torque. The gearbox options include a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic unit.

The optional NISMO package on the Sunny adds aggressively designed bumpers with chin spoilers, side skirts, a trunk lid spoiler, 16-inch alloy wheels with 205/50 Continental tyres, a sports exhaust and a revised suspension system.
