Nissan India will launch the Sunny facelift in the Indian car market on July 3rd, 2014. The updated Sunny is equipped with refreshed look and added features. This model shares its design cues with its larger saloon Teana, and appears bigger and contemporary than its previous model. The updated Sunny will be offered in three trim levels- XE, XL and XV. The top spec XV will only come in diesel powertrain and two accessories packs- Premium Pack 1 and Premium Pack 2.
It will be offered in both petrol and diesel guise. While the gasoline model gets a 1.5-litre engine producing 98bhp, the oil burner is powered by a 1.5-litre dCi engine that produces 84bhp. Both the engines will be paired five-speed manual transmission; however, the petrol model will also get a CVT gearbox.
With added equipments and better styling, this model will compete against the likes of new Honda City, Volkswagen Vento and others in the segment. We bring you a small specification comparison between the Sunny facelift, New City and VW Vento.
