Nissan is spotted testing what seems to be the 2020 iteration of the Nissan Sunny in the US. It looks like it is inspired by the Nissan V motion design scheme. It is also based on the Nissan Lannia or Altima. The 2020 Nissan Sunny will take on the likes of Hyundai Verna and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz if it comes to India.
Nissan Sunny first made its way to India back in 2011 as a premium sedan with loads of cabin space. But Nissan has not updated it since. They are also going through a rough patch in India with sales down to an all-time low. They are selling just about 500 new cars a month. This brings up the question will Nissan bring this updated model to India or not? Going by Nissan’s activity in India, it is most likely they will.
2020 Nissan Sunny all the changes
Speaking of the car, the wheelbase is longer. This means that the car is bigger overall. The front gets a V-shaped grille and sleek headlights. The heavy camouflage indicates that Nissan has some major changes to the bumpers and sides.
On the other hand, the 2020 Nissan Sunny is expected to get new 1.5l petrol and diesel engines. The petrol engine will produce 5600rpm and also 142Nm at 4000rpm. The diesel engine will pump out 110PS at 3850rpm and also 240Nm of torque at 1750rpm. The new engines will also be in compliance with the newer emission norms.
We get a small peek into the interiors and we can see that Nissan will have loads of features. We can spot a touch screen infotainment system which will most likely have smartphone connectivity. The new car will also sport a host of safety features like ABS and airbags as standard.
