Nissan releases all-new Sylphy


Nissan Motor Co on Wednesday launched the all-new Nissan Sylphy. The sedan will be sold in approximately 120 countries, including the U.S., Japan, China and Thailand.

Sylphy is one of Nissan’s global core models, along with the new compact Note (released in September) and the new Latio compact sedan (introduced in October).

Featuring an elegant and sophisticated design and class-above comfort, the Sylphy is powered by the newly developed 1.8L MRA8DE engine. The new powerplant is matched with a next-generation XTRONIC CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with sub-planetary gear, delivering powerful and smooth driving.

Key features of the new Sylphy

With its premium-feel front grille, LED-accented headlamps, large rear combination lights and a flowing character line, the new Sylphy exterior expresses a sophisticated sedan style. Compared with the previous generation model, the new model is 15mm lower in height and 65mm wider in width, giving it well-balanced sedan proportions.

Within the spacious and comfortable interior, Sylphy’s high-quality, refined cabin features a seamless, integrally molded instrumental panel and detailed meter design.

Class-above comfort

Sylphy’s optimized interior layout creates ample rear legroom that is comparable to that of a sedan one class above. Interior spaciousness is further enhanced with shoulder room that is increased by 30mm from the previous model. Ride comfort is also improved by reducing vibration with strengthened body rigidity, enhancing quietness with efficiently placed acoustic insulation and utilization of a vibration-absorbing suspension. Other features, including a Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) system and air conditioner outlet for the rear seats, which are also offered on Fuga and Teana, create a comfortable cabin for all passengers. Enhanced visibility and ease of driving is provided by large windows and the slope of the hood, which allows the driver to easily grasp the vehicle shape.

Price range: 1,937,250 yen to 2,389,800 yen.

    Sylph stands for a slender graceful woman or girl. How does it work for a macho-macho man consumer ? The name should be changed to a common consumer target.
