Scoop: Nissan Micra based sedan to be named ‘Sunny’

     Nissan will name its Micra based sedan as ‘Sunny’. The Micra sedan will be launched in December this year at Guangzhou, China. The name ‘Sunny’ holds a very strong heritage in Nissan’s history as it had named its small saloon from 1966 for many decades as Sunny.

     The Sunny will be based on the same Micra platform and we can expect the same interiors as of the Micra. The ‘V’ platform on which the Micra is built, has been designed for emerging markets with reductions in both weight and number of components. The Sunny will come with two engine options – 1.5 Litre, four cylinder petrol engine with 100 bhp and 1.5 Litre diesel engine which will be shared with Micra.

     The Sunny will compete with Maruti Dzire, Volkswagen Vento, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Verna, Honda City and Chevrolet Aveo in Indian market.
