Nissan launches Sunny in China

Nissan has officially unveiled its ‘New Global Sedan’ at the 8th China (Guangzhou) International Automobile Exhibition in China.

Based on Nissan’s versatile ‘V’ platform, the Sunny sports all-new styling and looks very different as compared to the Micra. This is the second model to be based in this platform after the Micra.

The ‘New Global Sedan’ will make its Indian debut in the second half of 2011, which will also be rolled out from Nissan’s plant at Oragadam, Chennai. It will compete with the likes of Maruti Swift Dzire, Volkswagen Vento, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Verna and Chevrolet Aveo.

The Sunny will come with two engine options for India; a 1.5 litre four-cylinder motor producing around 100bhp and the 1.5 litre diesel that will be shared with the Micra hatchback.
