New-generation Nissan Sunny is likely to arrive in the Indian market in 2018.
The Japanese carmaker, Nissan recently unveiled the new-generation Micra hatchback at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Now, a Malaysian blogger has rendered the next-generation Nissan Sunny sedan based on the revealed official pictures of the Micra. Though the company hasn’t yet announced its plan of bringing-in the new Sunny model.
Launched in 2011, the Nissan Sunny has never been a volume generator for the Japanese carmaker in India. The sedan received its first facelift with minor exterior and interior upgrades in 2014. With merits like class-leading cabin space and efficient engine lineup, the Sunny is an ideal product for family car buyers. Though, it didn’t do wonders in terms of sales.

Coming to the new-generation Nissan Sunny, the rendered images reveal an evolved design of the sedan. The new Micra design is heavily adopted from the Sway concept, and looks quite refreshing and sportier than the current model. Though, we can’t expect same for the Sunny. The new Nissan Sunny 2018 might carry revised front bumper, signature V motion grille and character lines flowing from the top of the headlamps.
Towards the rear end, the car could retain the boomerang styled taillights. The car could borrow the lower door crease from the new Micra, as seen in the rendered pictures. Mechanically, the 2018 Nissan Sunny could remain unchanged. Currently, the sedan comes with a 1.5L K9K dCi diesel and 1.5L HR15 petrol engines producing 84.8bhp with 200Nm and 97.6bhp with 134Nm respectively. Transmission options on offer are a 5-speed manual and a CVT. Also Read – Nissan Terrano AMT – All Details in 5 Quick Points
