The Nissan Sunny is an excellent sedan especially with its spacious cabin it offered for rear passengers. The Japanese company found much success with the Sunny in India and wants to bring the next-generation Sunny to the country.
The company has begun working on the all-new Nissan Sunny that is likely to be launched in India in 2018. The new Sunny will be based on the new Micra hatchback but will boast of an extended wheelbase to offer bigger legroom.
Nissan will position the new-generation Sunny as a global product and will be retailed as both left- and right-hand drive. In the international market, the Nissan Sunny is known as the Almera or the Versa.
While the new Sunny will be based on the latest V platform for the global market, India will receive the cost efficient CMF architecture.
The next-generation Nissan Sunny will not be stretched as the current model but will be a balance between space and agility. Nissan will look to take the competition to the likes of the Honda City and the upcoming new Hyundai Verna and the popular Maruti Ciaz.
As for the engine specification, the new Sunny will be equipped by Nissan's new 105bhp, 1.5-litre petrol engine launched recently on the Duster and will be paired to a CVT gearbox. Reports suggest that the Sunny might not be offered with a diesel powertrain, which will surely be missed by the Indian customers.
The Honda City and the Maruti Ciaz are among the best-selling sedans in India, and the new Nissan Sunny will have an uphill task to keep up with the momentum. That said, if Nissan can add some of the best features on the Sunny coupled with a competitive pricing, then the carmaker might have a winner.
