Nissan Sunny 2019 1.5L
The Sunny is based on Nisan’s V-platform. The Sunny has its oown design theme despite, being based on the same platform as that of Micra. The front fascia of the Sunny sports big headlamps and a Teana-inspired wide slatted chrome plated radiator grille. The side profile of the car features straight clean lines and a subtle look. The rear profile features stretched tail lamps and a simple bumper design with subtle lines.
The inside of the Sunny is simple yet slightly boring. The twin pod instrument cluster comes with a chrome outline which displays the necessary information like trip reading, fuel left to empty, etc. The 3-spoke steering wheel is mounted with audio/telephony controls. Decent quality plastics have been used for the interiors. The central panel resembles to that of the Micra and comes with an integrated music system, 4 speakers and an Aux-in port, along with the circular A/C vents. There is ample of leg/shoulder/head room in the front row, but that in the rear row, is much, making it difficult for a person not of average height/built.
