Nissan Sunny launch expected in mid-2011, sedan based on Micra platform

Nissan Motors is gearing to bring its latest sedan in India, the new Nissan Sunny. Nissan Sunny launch is expected to come to the country in mid-2011 and based on the first sketches of the car that were leaked long back it could be seen that Sunny is Nissan’s Micra sedan based on Micra’s V-platform.

 

The sedan has many parts similar to the Micra and it seems that automobile maker is following the footsteps of other car makers to launch a sedan based on a popular hatchback design for instance, Maruti  Dzire is sedan based on Swift, similarly Fiat Vento is Polo sedan and Tata Indigo is Indica sedan. But the automaker will make efforts to make Nissan sunny look like a whole new car rather than just a stretched Micra.

 

Nissan Sunny price in India is still under wraps but we can expect the sedan to come at a price of Rs. 8 lac. From the initial images it looks that Sunny borrows designing cues from Nissan Teana but under its hood the vehicle is powered by a petrol motor contrary  to people’s expectation of a 1.5 L diesel train which is the same motor that powers Renault Logan.

 

Nissan already uses Renault engine in X Trail. If we expect the Nissan Sunny with a diesel engine, the car will be pitted against Maruti Swift Dzire and Tata Indigo Manza. But since the car now has Nissan HR 15 petrol motor, the rivals will now be Fiat Linea and Hyundai Verna both coming with a petrol engine.

 

Nissan Sunny features a petrol train churning out 110 bhp of power and 148 Nm of torque. The car will be manufactured at the Oragadam facility near Chennai in India which is a joint investment venture of Nissan and Renault.

 

The automaker is yet to reveal anything significant about Nissan Sunny features and specifications and we have to wait for some more months to get the exact details regarding the same.
