2020 Nissan Sunny makes Middle East debut
Following its regional showcase at the Dubai International Motor Show 2019, the all-new Nissan Sunny 2020 is now available in showrooms across the region. The fully upgraded model comes with a stylish exterior featuring Nissan’s V-motion grille and combines a spacious interior design with high-quality materials and colors to give a fresh and renewed feel to the car.
Thierry Sabbagh, Managing Director of Nissan Middle East, said: “The Nissan Sunny continues to be a favorite for the region – selling over 474,500 units in the GCC alone since its introduction to the region in 1994. The all-new Sunny 2020 retains the essence of this sedan, while adding a sleek design lift and tech upgrades to provide an enhanced driving experience. The new look is striking and refined in equal measure, and we can’t wait for customers in the region to try out the all-new Sunny experience.”
The exterior dimensions are 3 mm longer and 45 mm wider (than the previous generation Sunny) – along with a 44 mm lower height. Contributing to the new Sunny's dramatic stance are reduced gaps between the fenders and tires. The new dimensions also help provide easy ingress and egress through all four doors. In addition, the new body offers a wider, more user-friendly trunk opening and 405 liters of cargo space.
Standard on all three Sunny grade levels is a next-generation 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 118 horsepower and a 149 Nm of torque – increases of 12 percent and seven percent, respectively. The Sunny S is available with a choice of a 5-speed manual transmission or an enhanced Xtronic transmission – which is standard on Sunny SV and SL grades.
Another area where the all-new Sunny stands out is with its available Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology. Standard on the SL grade are Intelligent Automatic Emergency Braking, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Blind Spot Warning, and Intelligent Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The all-new model comes in three trim-levels - S (MT or Xtronic), SV (Xtronic), and the sporty SL (Xtronic). Prices start at AED 57,900 including VAT for the 1.6 S CVT in the UAE.
