Although we are still waiting for the official confirmation, it seems pretty certain that the 2019 Nissan Sunny will come completely new. The famous nameplate is present in the car industry for several decades. Still, the current model isn’t even a shadow of some previous generations. Once a popular compact car around the Globe, today’s Sunny is a budget small sedan, oriented to developing countries. It is available in India, China and few other Asian countries.
The current generation is present on the market since 2011, which doesn’t look that old. However, if we consider that the famous Micra, on which the current Sunny is based, has been redesigned last year, it becomes clear that the arrival of new 2019 Sunny is close as well. At the moment, we are still waiting for the official confirmation, but latest reports claim new generation is on its way.
2019 Nissan Sunny redesign
This year or another, the new generation of the famous nameplate will come. At the moment, there is no official confirmation but those more optimistic reports suggest new model will come already as 2019 Nissan Sunny, which means by the end of this year. So, what novelties could the new generation bring? First of all, there is a new platform. The new-generation Micra came last year and we can notice some changes when it comes to base design characteristics.
First of all, the new model is a little bigger. A wheelbase has been stretched slightly as well. Despite bigger dimensions, the new Micra is lighter than its predecessor, thanks to the use of new lightweight materials. So, we could see similar changes on the new 2019 Nissan Sunny, though it will continue with the same 5-door sedan body style. Count on the completely new styling too.
2019 Nissan Sunny styling
Every redesign brings numerous changes. There are usually things like new platform, engines and other mechanical improvements that should improve performances, fuel economy and overall ride quality. Still, the styling has always been the most notable thing about every redesign. The 2019 Nissan Sunny will also come with the completely new appearance. Expect to see the implementation of the Nissan’s newest design language, including V-Motion grille, among other novelties. The overall shape should remain similar, but with far better aerodynamics. We should see much sharper lines, more massive bodywork and various other things that will make this car more attractive.
Same goes to the interior design, where we should see a completely new dashboard, as well as more spacious cabin. Finally, expect to see a whole bunch of new standard features, including some of the company’s new safety systems.
2019 Nissan Sunny engines
Big changes under the hood are also certain. If we can trust those internet reports, it looks like the base model will feature a 1.2-liter gasoline engine, with around 80 horsepower and 80 pound-feet of torque. It might sound not much power to some, but it is actually a perfect fit for such small vehicles.
Still, if you want to drive some more potent version, there is a familiar 1.5-liter engine with 100 horses, which should be offered as optional.
Finally, the new 2019 Nissan Sunny will be available in diesel variant as well. There is a familiar 1.5-liter diesel engine which delivers around 95 horsepower.
Each engine should be available with both manual and automatic gearbox.
2019 Nissan Sunny release date and price
This year or another, the new generation of this small car will certainly come in the near future. Those more optimistic reports suggest new model will be available already by the end of this year, as 2019 Nissan Sunny.
