Once a popular model on markets around the world, this nameplate is these days used for just in a couple of countries, including China and India. Of course, it’s not an independent model, but rather the same vehicle as Latio. Those unfamiliar with these nameplates can find a lot of similarities with the Sentra. Just like the North American subcompact sedan, the 2020 Nissan Sunny also comes completely new. Thanks to a lot of engineering, the new model looks very up to date and you definitely can’t tell it is designed for developing counters. Attractive styling, opulent cabin and decent mechanics are enough reasons to expect a lot of success from this model. It had a premiere recently and should hit the market soon.
2020 Nissan Sunny Redesign
Of course, this redesign brings a lot of novelties and the first thing we should mention is the platform. The new model rides on the company’s new version of a familiar CMF architecture. Practically, it is the same one that underprints the new Micra. Besides the new mechanics, which improve the overall driving experience, the new 2020 Nissan Sunny also comes with new exterior design. The first thing we should mention that the new model features notably longer wheelbase.
Also, it gains a couple of inches in terms of overall length as well. However, this hasn’t affected the vehicle’s overall shape, which still features a typical sedan layout. aesthetics are significantly more attractive now, as the new model has finally abandoned Nissan’s outdated aesthetics that date way back from the early 2000s. The new model follows the brand’s latest design language, characterized by the latest version of the famous V-Motion grille layout.
Of course, the interior is completely new as well and we can say that this aspect of the car brings the biggest improvements compared to the previous from bigger models like Altima, Maxima etc. Materials are much finer in the new model and you definitely won’t find too many areas with hard plastics. On the other side, the thing we don’t like is that the new cabin is tighter than the previous one. Well, the front seats offer more space and comfort, but rear ones are significantly tighter, despite that the new model features a longer wheelbase, which is a little surprising.
2020 Nissan Sunny Engine
Considering that the 2020 Nissan Sunny is designed primarily for developing markets, an older-generation engine is something we would normally expect. Therefore, the new model comes with a pretty familiar 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, which delivers 122 horsepower. With such numbers, you can’t expect any particular performances. However, the engine is still powerful enough to provide a convenient and comfortable ride. Also, the benefit of such relatively small output is very good fuel economy. Also, we like the fact that there is a choice between a 5-speed manual and CVT gearbox. Various reports are suggesting another engine option in the future. At this point, the company is still quiet on this matter.
2020 Nissan Sunny Release Date and Price
The 2020 Nissan Sunny had a premiere some time ago and we expect to see it on the market in the near future. Most likely, it will go on sale pretty soon, in a couple of weeks. When it comes to the price, we presume that the base model will remain under 10.000 dollars, as the affordable price has always been one of its strongest points.
