All New Next-Generation Nissan Sunny Revealed in 2019
Nissan has taken the wraps off the eleventh-generation sunny also called the Versa in the US. It comes after nine years, the tenth-gen sedan made its debut back in 2010. The tenth-gen Sunny was first launched in India in 2011. In terms of design, the new sedan takes a leap forward from its predecessor. It draws inspiration from the larger Altima sedan. 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.
Design Of The New Next-generation Nissan Sunny
The design of the new Nissan Sunny is based on the V platform which also underpins the global-spec Kicks SUV. Up front, the new-gen Nissan Sunny features the signature V-motion grille and sleek boomerang-shaped headlights. The sedan also gets newly designed alloy wheels, floating roof design and a larger rear door.
The interior of the new-gen Sunny looks almost similar to the Kicks SUV. The interior is equipped with features such as a floating touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, steering-mounted controls and soft-touch leather treatment for the dashboard. The global-spec new Nissan Sunny will draw power from a 1.6-litre petrol engine mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT gearbox. The same engine also does its duty on the global-spec Kicks SUV.
Safety Features Of New Next-generation Nissan Sunny
Safety measures for new Nissan have equipped the new Sunny with features like automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, lane departure warning and high beam assist. Also on offer is a blind spot warning system, rear cross traffic alert and cruise control along with multiple airbags and others.
Under the bonnet, the US-spec Sunny will only be available with a petrol engine. It gets a new 1.6-litre petrol engine that produces 122PS of power and 154 Nm of peak torque. The engine can be had with either a 5-speed manual or a CVT gearbox.
Price And Other Features Of all New Next-generation Nissan Sunny
The new Sunny next generation will go on sale in the North American market by mid-2019 as the Versa. Nissan has not confirmed the new sedan for India yet. We expect Nissan to bring the eleventh-gen Sunny in India eventually to replace the ageing tenth-gen model. It is one of the oldest sedans in the segment and among the least selling as well. Where its rivals, the Ciaz, City and the Verna, have a monthly average sales of around 3,000 units each, the Sunny has less than a 100 takers in a month. If launched here, the new-gen Sunny is expected to be priced at a slight premium over the current model, with the expected price from Rs 6.99 lakh to Rs 9.93 lakh. All the other important features and price with the date of release will be updated soon.
