Nissan India officially launched the Nissan Sunny facelift in Mumbai on 3rd July, 2014. The refreshed sedan receives comprehensive updates inside and out, making it bolder, more appealing and even more desirable. The New Sunny has a strong global heritage owing to its durability, economy, interior roominess and safety.
The model’s sleek and smooth silhouette is further accentuated by a premium front end with bigger and bolder grille, boomerang-shaped headlamps and an all-new bumper. New fog lamps with chrome finishers and generous chrome highlights in the grille surround and front bumper lower lip give the car a brand new identity.
The rear end also gets the premium touch with redesigned, flared bumper, black diffuser cladding, chrome trunk garnish and short antenna at the rear end of the roof. Other styling features include chrome door sills, Outside Rear View Mirror (ORVM) mounted turn signals and stylish 12-spoke Y-pattern alloys.
The New Sunny will be available in a choice of six colours with three new shades – Pearl White, Deep Grey and Nightshade. The sedan will also be available in Onyx Black, Bronze Grey and Blade Silver.
The changes are not limited to the exteriors but continue on the inside, adding to the functionality and comfort of the spacious interiors. An enhanced dashboard with piano black finish center console and Bluetooth-enabled premium audio lend a richer feel. XV variants get a 5.1-inch display for the audio system, which also doubles up as a display for the rear parking camera. The New Sunny also gets an all-new steering wheel with integrated audio and telephone controls.
The model retains the ‘best in class’ interior space and also comes with a host of luxury and comfort features including leather seats, individual rear reading lamps and air blower for rear passengers. The NVH levels have also been improved for a quieter cabin.
The New Sunny is equipped with even more safety features. ABS, EBD and Brake Assist is standard across all variants as is the driver airbag, while a passenger airbag is available from XV grade onwards. Buyers can also opt for side airbags on the XV Premium Safety variant.
The New Sunny retains its proven powerplants from the tenth generation model. The 1.5-litre HR15 petrol engine and 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine continue to serve under the New Sunny’s hood.
The petrol engine will be available with a choice of 5-speed manual and Xtronic CVT automatic transmission, while the diesel variants are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The petrol variants offer ARAI certified fuel efficiency figures of 16.95 kmpl and 17.97 kmpl for manual and CVT transmission respectively. The figure has improved to 22.71 kmpl now for the diesel variants.
