Nissan recently unveiled the new Sylphy sedan, a model better-known as Sentra in North America.
The new Nissan Sylphy is dedicated to the Chinese market and will be produced at the Dongfeng Nissan Huadu Plant in Guangzhou.
Under the bonnet we will find a 1.8-liter petrol engine mated to a new XTRONIC CVT unit with a wider gear ratio for reduced fuel consumption.
Moreover, Nissan says that the engine features a variable valve timing system along with valve lifters coated with Diamond Like Carbon (DLC). With these features, the engine will be able to reduce even more the CO2 emissions.
“Nissan developed a one-class-above solution that exceeds customers’ expectations – retaining the popular features of the current model while upgrading design, perceived quality, roominess and performance,” says the Japanese company.
The Australian market will get the new model as the Pulsar starting next summer while there are no details about the name that will be used by Nissan for this model in the other important markets.
