It is no rocket science that demand for petrol cars has slid further. In a move to increase sales of the recently launched Sunny, Nissan is offering a limited time offer on the car, offering benefits of close to Rs. 52,000/-. This offer comes with a catch, being value only till the 30th of November. Out of this Rs. 27,000/- is for insurance and Rs. 25,000/- worth of free accessories such as wheel covers, alloy wheels, rear spoiler, side moulding, door viros, mud guards, floor mates, rear sunshade, pillow set, steering cover, seat belt pad, and seat covers. Optional fitments such as remote locking, turn indicators on ORVMs and parking sensors are available as well.
The Nissan Sunny is priced at Rs. 6.73 lakhs for the XE variant, Rs. 8 lakhs for the XL variant and Rs. 8.95 lakhs for the XV variant (all prices on-road, Mumbai). With the discount the car becomes a worthy alternative to the Honda City, offering excellent rear passenger comfort and quality. The Sunny is powered by a 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder, 16-valve, DOHC unit which produces 99 HP of power at 6000 RPM and 134 Nm of torque at 4000 RPM. Till the time the K9-dCi diesel motor does not debut in the Sunny, Nissan will have to resort to such measures to sell the Sunny in the diesel centric Indian car market.
