Sunny days are back

Nissan has unveiled the all new Nissan Sunny at the 8th China (Guangzhou) International Automobile Exhibition. The existing model is a bit long in the tooth, being around for at least the past 8 years.

The Sunny sedan was introduced in China back in 2003 and was the first locally assembled model from the new Dongfeng Nissan partnership. The Sunny was responsible for establishing the Nissan brand name in the passenger car market in China. Nissan says that the new model will be a class leader in fuel economy and is expected to appeal to young families with its space, quality, features and dynamic design.

Powering the new sunny is the HR15DE 1.5 litre block current found in the Latio. The difference is that the engine is now mated to a new-generation Xtronic CVT transmission. The car is damped by MacPherson struts in front and a torsion beam for the rear. The new Sunny will go on sale initially in China in January 2011 before progressively making its way into 170 countries worldwide under different vehicle brand names.

The new Sunny doesn’t seem to give an impactful first impression with its design and power train, unlike the new Hyundai Avante. A 1.6L turbo version like the Juke might do the trick!

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
