From the experts

Things We Like in Sunny

 Improved in terms of features and touch-feel

 Lot of changes to either ends of the car plus new alloy wheels - we also love the new 'night' shade

 Diesel is very frugal. Petrol CVT is surprisingly efficient

Very comfortable rear seat. Oodles of space.

 Diesel motor is good to drive and very peppy

 Good at corners and confident car overall

Things We Dont Like in Sunny

 Rear air-vents should have been connected to the central air-con system

 Though it looks better now, the Renault Scala, we feel still has a better rear!

 Suspension is little bumpy at higher speeds

Is a little noisy

 Very few safety features

Launched in September 2011, the Sunny was slotted between the entry level sedans on one side and the more expensive C segment sedans on the other end. The car offered class leading space along with a frugal diesel engine and clever CVT transmission with the petrol engine. However, it looks sober and this is where Nissan has decided to change the perception with the updated Sunny. 
The new Sunny, shown at the 2014 Auto Expo retains the original design but with major changes to the front and the rear - for example new headlamps and bumpers. Likewise, though the interiors retain the same design, the car gets a new steering wheel, new piano black central console, a new audio system etc. Nissan has also worked on improving the overall quality of materials used. 
The new Sunny comes with the same engine options as the old one - a 1.5-litre petrol with both a 5 speed manual and a CVT transmission along with a 1.5-litre dCi diesel engine that is only offered with a 5-speed manual tranny. Both these powerplants remain untouched and put out the same performance as the older model. 
The Sunny gets competition from cars like the Renault Scala but being cheaper than the City / Verna / Rapid segment, the Sunny comes across as a value for money propisiton given the long list of features like keyless entry and start-stop system, leather seats, rear air vents, best in class rear space etc. 

The new Sunny will be offered in a total of 8 versions, namely: 
DIESEL : XL, XV, XV Premium Pack 1, XV Premium Pack 2



The new Nissan Sunny retains the same design theme as the earlier version but comes with a host of small changes and updates. For starters, the cabin gets a new color theme - light grey and overall quality of materails seems to have been improved. The second change one notices is the new steering wheel that is similar to some of the more expensive Nissan offers. This new steering also gets wide silver inserts to give that upmarket and premium look and feel. The wheel also gets controls for both the audio system and answering calls via Bluetooth. The speedometer console also gets white back-lightning now.

The central console gets a new piano black finish that was first seen on the new updated Micra last year. The audio system is also new and the top end versions gets a bigger unit with a 5.1 inch screen that also doubles as the display for the rear camera - this is another feature addition. The rear seats continue to offer class leading legroom and the rear air vents (not air-con vents, but mere air vents) makes things bearable in summers. Overall, small updates have gone a long way in improving the cabin when it comes to looks, feel and experience. Lastly, the top end version with premium pack will offer leather seats as standard.



Interiors Details

  • Boot Space

    The Nissan Sunny impresses with its boot space of 490 litres. The 60:40 split fold down rear seats come as an added advantage as it can gobble up some more luggages or random stuff in the boot.

  • Speedometer

    Nissan Sunny's speedometer has a nice classy touch to it. The dials are neat and easy to read.

  • Gear Lever

    In the Nissan Sunny, the gear lever is located well in the reach of the driver itself. The gear lever is placed in the middle console itself and now sports silver finish on it.

  • Cup Holders

    Nissan Sunny has double cup holders placed in between the two front seats. It also has cup-holders on the rear seats.

  • Glovebox

    Nissan Sunny has a glovebox that carry usual tid-bits with ease.

  • Audio System

    The Sunny has a double-din stereo with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, speed sensing volume control and four speakers and steering mounted audio controls for ease of use.

  • Air Conditioner

    The air conditioner in Sunny is powerful with automatic as well as manual control vents along with climate control feature.

  • Arm Rests

    Arm rest is incorporated on the front and rear seats both.

  • Air Vents

    The air vents in Nissan Sunny are mounted on the dashboard of the car and a couple of vents are provided on the backside portion of the front arm rest.

  • Seats

    Seating accommodation is for 5 people in total, front and rear legroom and headroom is better than most cars in its segment. The headroom is designed for tall people. But the thin cushioning on the seats displays the cost-cutting. There is no seat-height adjustment though. The rear seats have very little under thigh support.

  • Leg Room

    Ample of space in the rear means there's enough for passenger's to stretch their legs and relax. One of the best in the class!

  • Knee Room

    The knee room in Nissan Sunny is about of 850/600mm and is also one among the best in its segment.

  • Shoulder Space

    The shoulder space in Nissan Sunny is adequate and even 3 passengers in the rear bench is never a squeeze.

  • Head Room

    The headroom in the Sunny is s 950/940mm (F/R). The front and rear seat headrests can also be adjusted.

  • Steering Wheel

    The Sunny gets a newly designed 3-spoke steering wheel. It also has comes with volume controls mounted on it. It's nicely wrapped in leather which gives it a premium feel. Only gripe is that it's only height adjustable.

  • Power Windows

    The Sunny has power windows with one-touch up and down for the driver's window and anti-pinch function.

  • Keyless Entry

    The keyless entry feature is available.

  • Driver Information Display

    The driver information system has a trip computer with fuel indicator, dual trip meter and average fuel economy display.


 While the new Sunny retains the same body shell as the earlier model, changes have been made at either ends up impart a fresh look - for example, the headlamps are new and bigger and somewhat follow the boomerang theme, something seen in other Nissan models internationally. The grille is updated and so is the front bumper with with new fog lamp inserts and even a clever horizontal chrome lining. 
At the rear. the new Sunny gets a revised bumper with a larger chrome garnish. The antenna moves to the rear of roof and the car gets new wheel caps for lower versions and new alloy wheels for the high end versions. Overall, we like the new avatar though from certain angles, the Sunny still looks a bit sober. Given that top end models will cost over Rs 10 lac on-road, cars like the Verna / City in the same price bracket (though mid level versions) look class apart! 


  • Front Design

    The Sunny has large head lamps and grille, chrome lining around the central air dam and fog lamp housings at the front.

  • Rear Design

    At the back, the Sunny gets a chrome garnish on the boot lid and a black faux air diffuser in the rear bumper.

Mileage Running Cost

 The new Sunny continues to use the same engines are the old one. However, Nissan has reworked the diesel motor for increased economy that now stands at a rated 22.71, an improvement of almost 5%. 
Expect real world economy of 16-17 from the diesel in city and 11-12 from petrol (city conditions). Interestingly, the CVT transmission offers slightly better economy as compared to the manual one. On the highway, expect 22-24kmpl from the diesel and 16-17 from the petrol at speeds of 100-110km/h. 

Mileage Running Cost

    Comfort Suspension

    The Sunny is all about the space. There's so much space int he car that it leaves behind cars with bigger wheelbase and more expensive. Ride quality is good too.  

    Comfort and Suspension

    • Comfort

      Comfort is one of the Nissan Sunny's main forte. It can sit 3 in comfort at the back with any complains. Ample space with more than adequate knee and shoulder room, make Sunny a very comfortable car for the passengers.

    • Front Suspension

      Nissan Sunny comes with McPherson struts up front.

    • Rear Suspension

      Nissan Sunny has rear suspension with torsion bar.

    Engine Performance

     The 1.5 diesel motor is good to drive and is fuel efficient. There's very little turbo lag and it's super easy to drive int he city.



    Engine Performance

    • Acceleration

      Both the Nissan Sunny petrol and diesel models have adequate acceleration

    • In Gear Acceleration

      In-gear acceleration of the Nissan Sunny is good

    • Gearbox

      The new 2014 Sunny features the same transmission as before. The gearbox in Nissan Sunny is slick and easy to operate, the clutch which has been beefed up to take the extra torque, the gearbox in diesel Sunny feels heavier than in the petrol Sunny and as a result, constant gear shifting can take a toll on your left leg. The new Sunny CVT feels quick and smooth and its efficiency has been improved as per Nissan.

    • Power

      The Nissan Sunny is available in with a 1.5 litre petrol engine or a 1.5 litre diesel engine. The Petrol engine produces 99PS of power at 6000RPM with manual transmission & produces 101PS@6000RPM with automatic gearbox. The diesel variant is only available with manual transmission and produce 86PS@3650RPM.

      Petrol engine produces 134Nm@4000RPM on the new 2014 Nissan Sunny, whereas diesel delivers 200Nm of torque at just 2000RPM.

    • NVH Levels

      The cabin is well insulated and there's no noise from the engine intruding inside. There's however a road/tyre noises whic seep in the cabin as the speed rises.

    Braking Safety

     Handles quite well. Confident around corners. There isn't many safety features. You have to opt for safety package for it.

    Brakes and Wheels

    • Handling

      The Sunny handles decently but is not as sporty as some of the competitors. There's a significant boy-roll while cornering hard and it's very clear that the car is tuned for comfort.

    • Braking Performance

      The Nissan Sunny is fitted with front disk brakes and rear drum brakes that are considered as the perfect combination for immediate braking. With the combination of the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with the Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and the Brake Assist (BA), the braking system is more powerful for giving the ultimate braking when applied.

    • Safety Features

      Security features in the Sunny include driver and passenger airbag, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist.

    • Abs

      ABS feature is available on the Nissan Sunny.

      He still calls it a Caaaaar!

      I still remember when the advertisements for the Nissan Sunny came out. ‘Its not a car, It’s a caaaar’ I loved it. Still makes me smile. My brother finally bought the Sunny a little while ago. I get to drive it occasionally. It’s a Sunny XE Diesel in Onyx black. It’s definitely the best good looking car we have owned Read More

      My car is two year old and done about 33000 Kms. As against the company's claim of 22 KmLtr, I am getting around 14 to 15 Kms mileage in Chennai city. I got it inspected by Nissan Technical advisor. No improvement. I am happy with other aspects.

      I am happy with the leg room, dicky space and interiors. Hand rests are not very comfortable. Dash board must be designed to accommodate more storage space. Fuel efficiency must be improved. Each owner give different claims ranging from 16Km to 21 KmsLtr. I do not find any consistency with regard to mileage. My car is not giving more than Read More

      The most practical car around

      This is a not a beauty contest participant but a vehicle that delivers so much more. The kind of comfort and space the Sunny offers is unmatched at this price point. As both a chauffeur driven or a family car, the Sunny seems as an excellent option. The interior design is bland but Nissan has made up by offering features. Read More
