It was just a couple of months back that Nissan launched the updated 2017 Sunny sedan in India and despite the updates, it is still struggling to catch up to its rival - Honda City, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Hyundai Verna. That said with the price cut the Sunny surely becomes the most affordable sedan in its segment. Moreover, the company has also removed the range-topping XV Premium (Safety) variant, which was earlier available only in a diesel engine option.
Announcing the price revision Arun Malhotra, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India said, "Nissan always strives to offer innovative products to our customers with a compelling and competitive value proposition. The Nissan Sunny is our flagship sedan which we proudly "Make in India" at our Oragadam Plant in Chennai. Local production of this car enables significantly lower costs and this helps serve our customers faster with global levels of quality products. We pass on these benefits to our customers with very competitive prices for the Nissan Sunny, our popular premium sedan."
In terms of design, styling and mechanicals, the 2017 Nissan Sunny remains completely unchanged. On the feature front, the 2017 Sunny comes equipped with offerings like the intelligent key, push button start, and enhanced safety options including anti-lock braking (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), and brake assist (BA) in all grades with dual front and side airbags.

The 1498cc petrol motor 98bhp and comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and an optional CVT unit. The 1461cc diesel motor, on the other hand, makes 85bhp of peal power and gets only the 5-speed manual gearbox.
