Japanese auto major Nissan on Monday launched the diesel version of its mid-size sedan Sunny.
The 1.5-litre diesel version is priced at Rs 7.98 lakh for the base model and Rs 8.78 lakh for the top-end model (ex-showrooms, Delhi), the company said in a statement.
“We are delighted to introduce the diesel variant of the Sunny. At a time when the market is witnessing an increase in demand for diesel cars, Sunny diesel, with high fuel economy will be the right choice for our valued customers,” Nissan Motor India managing director and chief executive Kiminobu Tokuyama said.
Targeted at the youth, the Sunny diesel mirrors the petrol variant’s sophisticated style and roomy interiors.
It is the second model after the Micra hatchback to use Nissan's pre-eminent ‘V’ platform that carries advanced engineering to deliver a modern, light weight structure that provides integral strength, robust ride refinement and dynamic on-road behavior, it said.
The Sunny is manufactured at the Chennai facility, which the company jointly owns with French maker Renault, its international alliance partner.
