An all-new Nissan Sylphy has rolled out at the Shanghai Auto Show following low-resolution photos which leaked online a few weeks ago.
Powertrain details for the sleek-looking sedan haven't been released by the manufacturers just yet but it is said to be more fuel-efficient, while the car's aerodynamic features have been enhanced.
"With a new and more fuel-efficient powertrain, a wider stance, a lower center of gravity, improved aerodynamics and a roomy, luxurious interior, the new Sylphy delivers even better performance and an enhanced driving experience," a snippet from the press release reads. "Seamless connectivity features and a full suite of active safety technologies provide support for drivers.
“The all-new Nissan Sylphy represents the full landing of Nissan Intelligent Mobility in China,” says Nissan Motor Co., Ltd executive vice president Daniele Schillaci. “With an even more stylish design and advanced connectivity and safety technologies, the all-new Nissan Sylphy gives customers a whole new level of confidence and excitement, befitting of a leading family sedan.”
This new Sylphy boasts a sharp exterior, with aggressive-looking headlights on the front and fog lights in the lower portion of the bumper. It sports a black grille with a three-dimensional V-motion design. Bold character lines on the sides of the rear bumper and taillights also give off the same feel at the back.
According to Nissan, the car's redesigned exterior leaves it with a drag coefficient of just 0.26, which puts it on par with the Nissan GT-R in that regard.
Despite not going into details on the powertrain, Nissan has revealed that the new Sylphy uses its new HR16DE Gen 3 intelligent drive engine and an Xtonic transmission. We can expect more specs over the course of the Shanghai Auto Show.
As for the interior, a look inside the sedan reveals some luxury, and buyers will be handed the options of black, light grey or tan trimmings. An 8-inch infotainment screen is set in the center of the dashboard, which also houses a 7-inch digital gauge cluster.
Prices for this car hasn't been announced but details should emerge soon.
