A couple of days ago, Nissan India announced the arrival of the special edition Sunny C-Segment sedan through newspaper advertisements. Back then, the only details missing were the prices at which the special edition Sunny would sell at. Now, the car maker has officially announced the prices of the Nissan Sunny Special Edition variants. The Special Edition trim can be specified with both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engined Sunny Special Edition sedan XV variant is priced at INR 8.6 lakhs while the equivalent diesel variant comes in at INR 9.69 lakhs, both prices reflecting ex-showroom Delhi figures.
Bookings for the Sunny Special Edition variants are open across Nissan India dealerships with deliveries of this car slated to begin from later this month. Here’s a round up on the additional features of the Sunny Sedan’s special edition model,
* Premium leather seats
* 2 DIN touch-screen multi-media audio system (with DVD, BT, USB & Remote)
* Special body side mouldings
* Chrome-plated trunk detailing
* Rear view parking camera
The Sunny sedan is the Japanese car maker’s best selling car model in India. In the next few months, Nissan India will launch a new variant of the Sunny equipped with an CVT automatic gearbox. The CVT gearbox equipped Sunny will come only with a petrol engine option. The diesel powered Sunny powered by the 1.5 Liter K9K turbo diesel engine will continue to be offered with a 5 speed manual gearbox. Nissan also exports the Sunny sedan from India while also lending the car model to alliance partner Renault.
Renault India sells the badge engineered Sunny sedan in the form of the Scala. Earlier this year, Renault launched the CVT automatic gearbox equipped Scala sedan in India, beating Nissan to the post. So, it is just a matter of time before Nissan joint the automatic C-segment sedan brigade with the Sunny Automatic. The Sunny Automatic, like the rest of the Sunny sedan range, is expected to undercut the Scala in terms of pricing. So, if you’re looking for higher value in the automatic C-Segment sedan space in India, you might want to wait for a couple of months as the Sunny Automatic is just around the corner.
