Nissan rolls out all-new Sunny
Dubai, February 26, 2012
Nissan Middle East has unveiled the all-new Sunny, the completely revised tenth generation of its highest volume selling model in the GCC region.
This key competitor in the highly competitive C-segment market breaks new ground for entry-level compact sedans without sacrificing style for affordability, interior roominess for a smaller footprint, or drivability for high mpg, said a statement from Nissan ME.
The new Sunny’s exterior design is a departure from most current compact sedans, offering a refreshing design character that is both sophisticated and highly aerodynamic.
The designers have given the exterior shape a strong sense of volume, with a wide shoulder width and a smooth silhouette, the statement added.
In front, Sunny features Nissan’s new signature sedan grille design and jewel-like headlights.
The front end blends smoothly into the cabin, which offers flowing curves, while design elements such as the shape of the trunk-lid help give the new Sunny excellent aerodynamics, including a low coefficient of drag of just 0.31, said the statement.
In short, the exciting All-New Sunny boasts even more innovative design features to further broaden its appeal, it added.
“Nissan leads C-segment sales across the GCC region and with the introduction of All-New Nissan Sunny we hope to strengthen that position,” said Syed Ahmed, the general manager, Marketing Nissan Middle East.
“Its look, quality feel, performance and standard equipment present an exceptionally high standard for a vehicle in this class which we expect to attract buyers from a broader audience than its predecessor.”
The All-New Sunny is available with automatic and 5-speed manual transmission.
Underlining Sunny’s popularity in the region the six GCC flags were displayed on ten units in a symbolic gesture of the Sunny reaching across the GCC and involving all countries together.
Named ‘Nissan Sunny GCC Heritage Drive’, the campaign also highlights the long heritage of the Sunny with a drive which starts in Dubai and will reach all the regions.
'The designers of the new Sunny sought to combine five-passenger practicality with a high degree of comfort and refinement,' said Ahmed.
'The new All-New Nissan Sunny’s interior volume of 2549 litres and trunk volume of 490 litres (3,039 litres total) are intended to not only look great on a specifications sheet – the passenger and cargo spaces have been configured for real-world use.'
'Nissan Sunny has, for example, more rear legroom than some mid-size sedans – trumping even some luxury cars. And the trunk design focuses on useable space, taking into consideration everything from the size of the hinges to the shape of the sidewalls,' he added.
The interior is further enhanced with a range of advanced and innovative features including available: Bluetooth(R) hands-free phone capability with steering wheel control, rear comfort fan (first in class), integrated LED turn signals in door mirror and rear parking sensors.
