Nissan Sunny Overview
Nissan Motor India Private Limited, the Indian subsidiary of Japanese autogiant Nissan, owns a fleet of vehicles, belonging to almost every segment from hatchback to SUV in the country. In the entry-level saloon segment, it offers the Sunny sedan which is truly a royal wagon to drive. Nissan Sunny hit the Indian shores firstly in 2011 and it was received considerably well by the auto freaks in India. But along the course of time it lost its glory and hence, in an awe to re-create the enigma and panache, the company has launched the second generation of the entry-level saloon in the country being cited as ‘Nissan Sunny’. It is more promising, advanced and striking than its predecessor and looks complete.
Sunny sedan has been offered with a total of 8 variants, out of which three – XE, XL and XL CVT belongs to the petrol fuel trim while the remaining five – XE D, XL D, XV D, XV D Premium (leather), and XV D Premium (safety) lie under the diesel guise. In the top-end variant XV, with the diesel guise, the company has presented two special paid optional packs in the form of leather and safety. Nissan has made an array of cosmetic changes both inside and out which pampers an individual adequately. However, the company has refrained from making any mechanical changes or enhancement in the dimensions of the sedan; instead retaining the original one including the transmission also. check for Nissan Sunny price in Hyderabad at Autozhop.
Nissan Sunny Exteriors & Style
In terms of design, the new sedan takes a leap forward from its predecessor. It draws inspiration from the larger Altima sedan. In fact, it won’t be wrong to say it looks like a compact version of the Altima. Like the latter, it gets Nissan’s V-motion grille that sits on a blacked out portion in the front bumper. It is flanked by upswept, boomerang-shaped LED headlamps with integrated LED DRLs. At the rear, it gets boomerang-shaped tail lamps and a new dual-tone bumper.
The side profile of the Sunny looks rather sporty and unique thanks to a coupe-like sloping roofline and blacked out C-pillar with a prominent kink, which gives it the effect of having a floating roof. A similar treatment can be seen on the Nissan Kicks as well. Nissan has not yet revealed the exact dimensions of the new Sunny. However, it has confirmed that it is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor. Moreover, the wheelbase has also gone up compared to the 2600mm of the tenth-gen model. The new Sunny rides on 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels.
Nissan Sunny Interiors & Space
If there is something that speaks ‘volumes’ about the Sunny, it has to be its interiors. The amount of space it offers is simply impressive. The equipment list on the new version has been bumped up and one can see similar changes as seen on the new Micra with the piano finished console.First thing that is strikingly different is the steering wheel. The steering wheel which has been carried from the flagship luxury sedan Teana feels feature rich. It might look like a small addition but then if feels nice and premium. The instrumental cluster remains same as it displays the essentials of real time driving condition.
The central console has been revised. The AC vents have become smarter than earlier with new design. Smooth piano finished console has substituted the otherwise drab looking design and it looks refined now. It also gets a new shade on the dashboard plastic and a USB plug in option situated in the intermittent recess above the glove box. We only wish that Nissan had offered beige coloured trims which would have contrasted the ebony central console in a very stylish manner.
Apart from the revised console, there are no drastic changes in the Sunny. The leather clad seats appear decent. Very few cars in the segment feel as comfortable as the Sunny and the room offered inside the cabin is simply mind blowing. Even though it is perceived as an entry level sedan but then the space does not only make it feel roomier than its rival models but also feels better than upper segment cars which is truly amazing.
Nissan Sunny Engine & Gearbox
The Japanese automaker Nissan has presented the entry-level saloon Sunny in both petrol and diesel guises. The company has refrained from making any modifications in the Sunny; hence, retaining the engine specifications of the same phased out model. The petrol variants carry a 1.5-litre motor with them which has Electronic Fuel Injection Control as fuel system. The 1498 cc, 4-cylinder, 16-valve engine is being christened as ‘HR 15’. It is capable of churning out a top power of 98 bhp at 6000 rpm with the manual variants while the automatic variant gets an exceeded power of 2 bhp which makes it 100 bhp at 5600 rpm. Though, torque remains common in form of 134Nm at 4000 rpm for both the manual as well as automatic variants. The engine gets coupled with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a XTronic CVT transmission. To know more details on Nissan Sunny visit Jsrr
On the other hand, the diesel avatars of Sunny are being offered with 1.5-litre K9K dCi engine which has been re-tuned to yeild a better fuel economy. The 1461 cc motor has Common Rail fuel system and it generates a maximum power output of 84 bhp at 3750 rpm along with a peak torque performance of 200 Nm at 2000 rpm. Sadly, there is not an automatic transmission on offer in the diesel fuel trim and the company has opted for its conventional 5-speed manual transmission in an awe to maximize mileage and performance.
Nissan Sunny offers a satisfactory mileage in both petrol and diesel guises as compared with the other sedans in the segment. The petrol variants with the manual gearbox deliver a fuel
economy of 16.95 kmpl, while the automatic variants returns a promising mileage of 17.97 kmpl. These are quite acceptable, reckoning the impeccable performance of the sedan. On the other hand, the diesel variants come up with a fuel efficiency 22.71 kmpl; still quite low as compared to segment leader City but acceptable. It has exceeded by 1 kmpl than the previous version of Sunny due to the re-tuning of the engine.
Nissan Sunny Driving Dynamics
The Nissan Sunny flaunts an all new 3-spoke leather strapped tilt electric power steering wheel. It is quite light in maneuvering the sedan across the narrow streets and the sedan too responds almost instantly and precisely to the driver’s directions. The tilt steering wheel further facilitates the driver to adjust the steering position according to his/her comfort and convenience. Although, despite all this, the handling is just okayish. There is also a first-grade suspension system with Mcpherson Strut as front suspension while the rear one is Torsion Bar in the Sunny sedan. The manual transmission and the automatic transmission of petrol variants of Sunny touch the 100 kmph barrier from standstill in a mere 12.7 seconds and 12.1 seconds, respectively with a common top speed of 175 kmph. The diesel variant crosses the same barrier in a time frame of around 14-15 seconds with a top speed around 160 – 180 kmph. Check car loan for Nissan Sunny at Fincarz.
