The Nissan Sunny was first introduced in China in 2003 and was important as the first locally built model from the new Dongfeng Nissan partnership. The Sunny quickly helped to establish the Nissan brand in the passenger auto market in China.
Planned as class leader in fuel economy, the all-new Sunny is expected to attract young families in their 30s looking for a medium sized sedan that combines a dynamic smart design with the space, quality and features associated with the Sunny and Nissan brand.
Combining the proven Nissan 1.5-liter HR15DE engine with dual injectors and a new-generation Xtronic CVT with an auxiliary transmission, Sunny proposes ease in handling for city driving.
MacPherson struts are used for the front suspension and a torsion beam for the rear suspension, making for sporty and agile driving at low speeds, and steady and stable driving at higher speeds.
The new Sunny will be manufactured in Dongfeng Nissan’sHuadu Plant in Guangzhou for the Chinese market.
