Nissan Sunny 2012 is possible Tiida replacement

Nissan Sunny 2012 is possible Tiida replacement

Nissan has unveiled an all-new sedan at the Chinese Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition, and named it the Nissan Sunny. This sub-compact new model will go on sale in China by January 2011 and then across 170 countries eventually under different names.

Already tagged as a “global” car, the 2012 Nissan Sunny might come to the UAE badged as a 2012 Tiida, with the current Sunny Classic continuing to be on sale as a budget model. Or it could finally merge the Tiida and Sunny models in the GCC.

For China, where it is built by Dongfeng-Nissan, the Sunny will use a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine and a CVT automatic. The Nissan Micra-based platform rides on MacPherson strut independent front suspension and a torsion beam rear.

The Sunny-Tiida destined for the Middle East might come from Japan or the United States, if not India, sometime in late 2011. Incidentally, the Micra is also coming to the GCC.

Keep track of updates in the Nissan buyer guide.

What do you think?



  1. butt ugly…especially the interior, Tiida interior looks way better…Japanese are going nuts with the designs..Kudos to Koreans…



  4. forgot one more thing to mention, Sunny Classic still looks cool … a proper shape… and value for money car that can run for decade with low maintenance…

  5. no tida has another replacement

  6. Tida and Sunny are completely different models.

    The Sunny is the low budget model at Nissan.

    Micra is a smaller model aimed more for Europe and Japan, has a better build quality than Sunny and Tida; usually with a more successful design for the Europian taste.

    So each model is different.

  7. A reliable source told, possibility of Nissan Sunny 2012 & Micra will directly importing from Indian Continent – Chennai

  8. FYI : The new sunny is produced in India and not China. The Sunny 2012 is also not a replacement of the Tiida which still continues and was never introduced as a replacement into the UAE or the middle east! Where do you get your facts?
