Nissan recently unveiled their new Sunny sedan at the Guangzhou (try saying that five times fast, or even once slowly) International Automobile Exhibition. The old Sunny has been around since 2003 and is built locally in China, but Nissan has plans to make this new one a huge-volume global vehicle, eventually making its way to 170 different countries. It isn't going to be a class leader in performance, with a 1.5-liter engine and CVT transmission, Nissan set their sights on making it economical.
We haven't gotten the exact numbers from Nissan, but it's safe to assume that it won't be a gas guzzler. The interior isn't luxurious either, but once again we can assume that if Nissan wants this car to sell in the millions, they have to make it affordable. The hope is that all of this cost-cutting has not made for poor build quality, but time will tell.
