Nissan unveiled the fifth-generation Sunny sedan, which is offered under the Versa and Almera badges on international markets back in April 2019. It has now been shown at the Dubai Motor Show in 2019. The extensively revised Sunny is based on the modified version of V architecture.
Unlike the one in India, it is based on the same platform that Kicks are based on the international markets. The exterior has undergone a number of changes and it is easy to see where the inspiration for design comes from bigger Nissan’s. The new Altima version paved the way for the Sunny’s sharper styling.
The new-generation Sunny comes up front with the iconic V-motion front grille in form angular as normal. The redesigned headlamps are sharper than the domestically sold sedan. The newly designed alloy wheels adds more sporty feel to the sedan. It sports a larger rear door and a rear end with LED tail lamps in Boomerang fashion in a design identical to the LED Daytime Running Lights up-front.
The interior design is shared with the Kicks and features a wider touchscreen infotainment system with access with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, updated steering wheel, luxury dash leather inserts, automatic climate control, new instrument cluster, and so-on.
The new Sunny is available with an internationally built 1.6-liter petrol engine with 124 horsepower and is linked to either a five-speed manual or an automatic CVT transmission. In India, the 2020 Sunny will compete head-on with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Toyota Yaris, Skoda Rapid, and Volkswagen Vento.
No official details have been released about its release in India, but we can expect it to arrive sometime in 2021.
