Nissan has begun testing the new-generation Sunny, which will reportedly take design and styling cues from the Nissan Lannia sedan concept, previewed several years ago. A production-spec model of the sedan is currently available for retail in the Chinese market. Other bits, such as rear door and boot design will be in line with new-gen Nissan sedans available in global markets. The Nissan Sunny sedan is sold in overseas markets under the Almera or Versa nameplates. As for the new-gen Sunny, it is expected to be revealed globally in the coming months.

The new-gen Nissan Sunny caught on test abroad features a sculpted face highlighted by a large V-motion grille that meets seamlessly with the bumper. The front gets sharp headlights and chrome grille surround which seems inspired by Nissan Kicks. At the side, it gets a large glasshouse and a large rear door, akin to the previous model. In addition, the production-spec Nissan Sunny is likely to come with a floating roof as well.

The previous-gen Nissan Sunny was longer than Micra from the same generation. That said, Sunny was around 630 mm longer and if reports are taken into account, the new-gen Sunny will measure 680mm more than the current Micra. Similarly, Sunny will sit on a 175mm longer wheelbase opposed to Micra at 2,700 mm.

The new Nissan Sunny will share its underpinnings with the current Micra which is based on the updated V platform. One must note that the Nissan Note hatchback and Nissan Kicks sold in the global markets are also built on the same underpinnings. The insides of the new-gen Nissan Sunny will be heavily inspired by Nissan Kicks and Nissan Micra. The seats, steering wheel and switchgear will be borrowed from the above-mentioned models. As for mechanicals, the sedan is expected to get a 1.6-litre petrol unit with 114hp of maximum power, akin to Nissan Kicks. In India, the new-gen Nissan Sunny will take on the likes of Hyundai Verna, Honda City and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.
