Nissan has launched a special edition of the Sunny sedan in India for the festive season. The Sunny Special Edition is available with the diesel engine only and is priced at Rs 8.48 lakh (ex-showroom).
The Sunny Special Edition is likely to be based on the XL variant (diesel-manual), which is priced at Rs 8.39 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Over the Sunny XL, the Special Edition gets a black roof wrap, new body decals, black wheel covers with new rear spoilers and a 6.2-inch touchscreen AVN (audio, visual and navigation) system with smartphone mirroring. In our opinion, the premium of Rs 9,000 seems justified for the cosmetic changes and touchscreen infotainment system that the Special Edition offers.
