On the official website of Nissan Sunny in China, new images have been posted that give a better idea of the C-Segment sedan.
Though the collection of photos is limited, we felt there is a reason in sharing them with you. The Sunny debuted yesterday at the Guangzhou Auto Show and it is expected to go on sale in India around Diwali next year.
In its official press release, Nissan stated that the branding and pricing for India will be decided closer to the Indian launch. In doing so Nissan has hinted that Sunny might not be on the car for India. Powertrain lineup is expected to be nothing out of the ordinary. A pair of fuel efficient engines (1.5-liter diesel, 1.6-liter petrol) will be offered to Indian customers next year.
In some markets, Nissan could continue running the same engine. Tune the 1.2-liter engine to produce higher power and that will do nicely. Nissan should not rule out the possibility of doing a sub 4-meter Sunny sedan for India along with these powertrains.
In terms of the exterior design, the sedan does look elegant with chrome and the slightly disproportional styling approach to bring it close to the Teana is very evident at the car's rear.
Indoors, Nissan has added a AC vent for the rear passenger. The wheelbase has improved and so will the life for the rear seat passenger who gets an arm rest thrown in for long journeys.
We are awaiting more official pictures of the Sunny sedan. Hopefully we will be able to get you more in the coming weeks.
