Nissan reveals new global sedan at Chinese show

Nissan has officially revealed its new ‘global sedan’ at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition in China this week. Although Nissan’s new global sedan will be sold under the 2012 Nissan Sunny name in China, it could get a different name in the rest of the 170 countries it will be sold in. Here in NZ it could be called the Sunny or may even mean a comeback for the Pulsar nameplate.

The new model is aimed at appealing to young buyers and young families, combining what Nissan describes as an upscale interior design with spaciousness and quality materials. It features conservative styling with a prominent shoulder line, sweptback headlights, and Maxima-inspired taillights.

Nissan’s new model is powered by a 1.5-litre HR15DE engine with dual injectors coupled with a Xtronic CVT with an auxiliary transmission. It should produce around 75kW of power and 136Nm of torque. Suspension is managed by MacPherson struts up front and a torsion beam rear. With this small engine this new global sedan is expected t be a class leader in fuel economy.

The Sunny will be produced by Dongfeng Nissan’s Huadu Plant in Guangzhou and will go on sale in China in January, before being launched in 170 markets worldwide.
