Nissan just introduced the next generation Sylphy in the Chinese market. The Sylphy slots between the Sunny and Teana. The Sylphy is a global car, like the Sunny, having 140 countries on its hit list. It is certainly expected in India in the coming years to compete against the Corolla and Civic.
Renault which sells Nissan models rebranded in India, already has a D-segment Fluence. With Sylphy Nissan might be looking to get piece of the D-segment pie in India.
Nissan Sylphy is offered in 1.6L and 1.8L petrol engines in China. However, Diesel being the new favourite in India, Sylphy will possibly get the fully localised 1.5-liter K9K diesel engine which is already doing duty on the Fluence.
In China, The new Sylphy sets customers back 119,000 RMB (10.36 lakhs in India) for the basic 1.6L and rises to 169,000 RMB (14.71 lakhs in India) for range-topping 1.8L CVT variant.
