We drove the Sunny on the East Coast Road from Chennai to Pondicherry to bring you this review. Read our first drive impressions here: Nissan Sunny first drive
The Sunny is a cute yet elegant looking car. It has a premium chrome grille akin to the one Nissan Teana. The Sunny has long high-swept headlamps and a curvy bonnet that completes the front.
The cars roof slopes in typical coupe-like fashion giving it a long and impressive side profile. The tail-lamp cluster is neat and attractive too; it is however a bit like the Dzire’s tail lamp cluster only better looking.
Ride and handling
The Sunny has a 1,498 cc, DOHC, 16-valve petrol engine that belts out 98 bhp of peak power and 134 Nm of peak torque. The car’s electric power steering is easy and responsive at low speeds but fails to give enough feedback at high speeds, feeling rather light. Handling is decent and facilitates absolute comfort, especially for those in the rear seats.
The Nissan Sunny is a very comfortable car. What makes it so comfortable is the amount of attention Nissan has paid to small but relevant things like back seat legroom. The rear comfort fan too is an interesting and useful feature. The interiors feel plush and the seats are soft with ample support.
There aren’t any remarkably new features in the Sunny but the smart key, climate control console, steering mounted audio controls and the rear comfort fan are all thoughtful additions. Also buyers will likely like the automatic folding mirrors and the icing on the feature list; push button start.
