Nissan India has slashed the prices for the Sunny by close to Rs 2 lakh. The Sunny now has a starting price of Rs 6.99 lakh and the top end CVT variant costs Rs 8.99 lakh, all prices ex-Delhi. Nissan is expecting the revised pricing to attract those who were likely to consider a compact sedan, a segment it is not present in at the moment, to upgrade to a full-size sedan for a small premium.

The Nissan Sunny has two engines on offer, a 1.5-litre petrol engine which makes a maximum of 98bhp and 134Nm of torque and is paired to a 5-speed manual 'box. You also get the option of CVT with this unit, which gives you an extra 2bhp as well. The other is a 1.5-litre diesel with an output of 85bhp and 200Nm of torque.

The sedan segment has been quite active this year with the facelifted Honda City and the upcoming facelifts of the Maruti Ciaz and Hyundai Verna. Nissan then seems to be relying on its pricing to be the competitive edge for the Sunny. The revised prices are as follows:

XE - Rs 6.99 lakh
XL - Rs 7.59 lakh
XV CVT - Rs 8.99 lakh
XE D - Rs 7.49 lakh
XL D - Rs 7.99 lakh
XV D - Rs 8.99 lakh
All prices, ex-showroom, Delhi
