The new Nissan Sunny sedan will share design cues with the Chinese sibling – Lannia
We informed you earlier that Nissan has started working on the next-generation Sunny sedan, which also known as the Almera and the Versa in the international markets. The company will officially unveil the all-new Nissan Sunny sedan on April 12, 2019 at a music festival in florida. The sedan has already been spotted testing multiple times.
The all-new Nissan Sunny design will be inspired by the Nissan Lannia sedan concept. A production-spec Lannia sedan is already on sale in the Chinese market. Besides sharing some of the design highlights with the Chinese sibling, the new Sunny will come with a conventional rear door and boot design. In terms of styling, the new Nissan Sunny will come with elegant profile featuring a large signature V-motion grille, sharp headlights and chrome grille outline. The sedan will have a large glasshouse with a larger rear door, while the floating roof design merges well with the overall styling.
In-line with the previous Sunny, the new model will be around 680mm longer than the current-gen Micra hatchback (International-spec). It is likely to carry a wheelbase of 2,700mm, which is around 175mm more than that of the Micra. The sedan will offer spacious cabin with enhanced legroom and shoulder space for both front and rear occupants.
The next-generation Nissan Sunny will be built on the updated V-platform that also underpins the global-spec Kicks and the Note hatchback. The India-spec Kicks is built on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s MO Platform that also underpins the Duster and the Captur. The interior of the new sedan will be shared with the Nissan Kicks and Micra hatchback. Features like seats, dashboard, steering wheel, buttons and touchscreen infotainment will be sourced from the sibling SUV. The global model is expected to be powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine that is likely to produce around 111bhp of power.
