Nissan Sunny Facelift

Nissan launched the Sunny sedan for the Indian market in 2011 and it has been selling in the same form since then. As a part of the normal product life cycle it unveiled a facelifted version for the Indian market at the 2014 Auto Expo and this is expected to go on sale a few months from now. It has got cosmetic changes both inside and outside with the former being almost similar to the ones found on the facelifted Nissan Micra that was launched last year. The facelifted Sunny has already gone on sale in the Thai and Chinese market and is even offered with a Nismo body kit and tuning options.
Exterior
The front of the facelifted car gets a revised design for the grille as well as the headlights. Much more of an evolutionary design, the grille now gets added bling around the edges. The headlights have been revised and now feature a more angular tear drop design as compared to the current car’s rounded shape. The fog lamp housing while remaining the same shape also gets an added dose of chrome as is the case with the base of the air intake. The side profile remains the same as before while the base of the rear end has been raised and covered with a plastic lip in a bid to give the car a sportier appearance.
Interior
The interiors have been updated to match those of the Nissan Micra that was launched last year. These changes include gloss black plastic for the dashboard, touch screen infotainment for the top- spec versions and on a more minor note different fonts for the info graphics . The lower- spec variants will continue with the beige interiors but across all versions, Nissan is expected to introduce a revised design for the steering which has already been shown with the Thai and Chinese models. The interior space is still massive but we hope Nissan will be able to revise the amount of under thigh support offered with the rear seats. The recirculating fan at the rear is an India only option and we expect that it continue in the facelifted model.
Engine and gearbox
The Nissan Sunny in India is currently and will continue to be powered by two sets of engines- a 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. The former produces 98bhp and 134Nm of torque while the oil burner produces 85bhp and 200Nm of torque. Both engines are offered with a five-speed manual while the petrol can also be had with a CVT gearbox.
Price and competition
We expect that Nissan will price the facelifted Sunny in the range of Rs 6.28 lakh to Rs 10 lakh. It competes with the Renault Scala, Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Skoda Rapid, VW Vento and the Ford Fiesta which is due for a facelift soon.
Expected Launch: 3 July 2014
Expected Price: 6.28 – 10 lakhs

THE NISSAN’S PREMIUM SEDAN- NISSAN TEANA

                                             NISSAN TEANA

                                                                              The Japanese automobile manufacturer Nissan Motors had launched its second product, the Teana, in India in 2007. Nissan previously, in 2004, launched the most fuel-efficient SUV in India known as the X-TRAIL. Now in an attempt to expand its hold on the Indian market, Nissan brings out the facelifted Teana with a refreshed look and a powerful engine.
                                       The new Teana pools amazingly advanced technology with a streamlined body design and a powerful engine. Teana is a luxury sedan that is designed to attract stares and awe its passengers. It holds mechanisms and parts that have been imported from Japan and the difference in road performance is noticeable.
                            Teana now comes in two petrol variants: XL and XV. The two variants are powered by a reputed Nissan VQ series engines. The new Nissan Teana is out to give tough competition to the Skoda Superb and Toyota Camry.

               STYLE

New Nissan Teana Car - Interior

Luxury is just one word that can define the Teana. Its leather upholstery and 8-way electronically powered front driver’s seat will have you enjoying a relaxing drive all day long. It has a turning radius of 5.3 meters that gives you absolute control over the car. The Teana is longer than most cars in its segment and it has a wide wheelbase that improves its interior space and stability. However, it has a lower ground clearance that may make it difficult to speed over large bumps.
The new Teana sports retractable stylish glass sunroof with UV protection, which lets the rear seat passengers enjoy the sun, filling the cabin with an open air ambience. The sophisticated wooden interiors and the stylish dashboard caress you like a luxury suite of a 5-star hotel. The cockpit is not only visually appealing but also carefully designed to deliver ultimate convenience and ease of use to the driver and all passengers concerned. The information console provides you with complete visual confirmation of air conditioning settings, outside temperature, audio system and time, as well as it allows you to monitor the drive computer. A well designed visual instrumentation with high-contrast white illumination assures maximum visibility. The large speedometer is further enhanced by a silver-coloured ring that cannot escape your notice. A one-of-its-kind rear power sunshade keeps the sunlight and glare away from rear passengers without blocking the driver’s rear vision while also maintaining the temperature you set within the cabin of the car. There is a LED indirect illumination on the center console, front passenger and rear door grips that shines softly to create a more welcoming interior ambience. The soft-touch buttons and the pampering ottoman-style leg-rest on the front seats to support the lower legs take driving luxury to the next level. The boot consists of 476 litres of space that will not keep you wanting.
The revised Nissan Teana’s exterior is a balance of beauty and elegance. It has wheel arches that fit perfectly over the wheels and add to its aura of panache. It has high-projector headlamps, designed to light up the road, placed on either side of a stylish chrome grill. It also consists of high mounted LED rear stop lamps and LED rear lamps that will make sure that you catch everyone’s eye when you decide to break. All wheel disc brakes along with ABS and EBD make sure that you have control of the car even in unforeseeable circumstances.
Teana is designed to absorb impact. It features crushable zones and a safety restraint zone that work together with multiple Supplemental Restraint System airbags to avoid or reduce injuries, in case of an accident. Wearing seatbelts at all times is advisable. In a collision, active head restraints instantly move forward to support the head and reduce impact on the neck.

                                                            The very first MPV from Nissan in India, Nissan NV200 is smaller compared to an SUV, but it can accommodate upto seven passengers and can be used to carry ample of load. The Nissan NV200 has been awarded the ‘International Van of the year 2010′. The MPV is produced with the help of Indian firm Ashok Leyland-commercial and defense vehicle manufacturer. The MPV will have to compete with the likes of Toyota Innova, Tata Aria, Mahindra Xylo and some upcoming MPVs like Maruti Ertiga, etc. Mercedes Benz is also preparing to launch its MPV in India very soon that would be Mercedes Benz R Class.

The MPV can also be used for commercial purpose or for a big family. In India, the Nissan NV200 will have an upgraded Renault-Nissan B-Alliance platform and is believed to have the same HR15DE engine which powers the Nissan Micra, Nissan Sunny and Renault Pulse; the engine is 1.5dCi, diesel engine that would churn out a top power of around 85 bhp at 3750 rpm and generate a peak torque of 200 Nm at 2,000 rpm. The vehicle will sport a five speed manual transmission.

Nissan Motors is planning to spread its wings in the Indian auto market after the huge success of its small car Nissan Micra. In order to execute the planning, the company has recently announced to launch 9 cars in India by 2012. Meanwhile it has also targeted to open more dealerships, a total of 100 outlets, by 2013. Among 9 upcoming cars, there would be a multipurpose vehicle (MPV) called Nissan NV200. It was first shown as the NV200 Concept during the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. It is only available as a van model. “NV” in its name stands for New generation Vehicle. It was first launched in Japan as Nissan NV200 Vanette on May 21, 2009, and in Europe in autumn 2009. Nissan and Ashok Leyland are targeting 20% of the total Indian production of the NV200 to be exported to neighboring countries like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

As far as features are concerned, nothing is disclosed by the company, but you can expect it to have power steering wheel with rack and pinion, conventional AC and audio system, front fog lamps, black colour ORVMs, Alloy wheels, front disc and rear drum brake, strut type front suspension and rigid rear forks, foldable rear seat row, power windows, ABS with EBD, SRS dual front airbags, etc. All the above mentioned features are available in overseas version of the MPV and they are supposed to be installed in the Indian version too. However, to keep the cost of the vehicle competitive, the company may trim some of the features.

The Nissan NV200 is larger in terms of size and cargo space, but a bit smaller when compared to Toyota Innova. The exterior appearance is good enough to show its pretty good size and inside space whether for cargo or for passengers. The front fascia of the Nissan NV200 is sloping to the bumpers; the nose of the vehicle has a smiling face that is attributed by its smiling front grille and triangular shaped multi-reflector halogen headlamps. The lower portion of the nose has got all black out treatment; it has black colour bumper and lower grille cluster along with front fog lamps in round shape. The ORVMs and door handles are in black that is common to MPV segment in India. The rear end of the vehicle is very flat, a high stop lamp and two reflectors are fitted for safety in dark.
