The Nissan Sunny was first introduced in China in 2003 and was significant as the first locally built model from the new Dongfeng Nissan partnership.

A projected class leader in fuel economy, the all-new Sunny is expected to appeal to young families looking for a medium sized sedan that combines a dynamic upscale design with the space, quality and features associated with the Sunny and Nissan brand.

Nissan's 'new global sedan' is NOT a Micra sedan.

It is a completely new look sedan based on Nissan's versatile 'V' platform.

The model name 'Sunny' is only for the China market.

The name for the India market has not yet been finalised.

The name and other specifications including pricing will be decided at an appropriate time closer to the launch in India.

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.
