Nissan launches the all-new Sylphy in Japan
Nissan today announced the launch of the all-new Nissan Sylphy, which goes on sale today at Nissan dealers throughout Japan. The all-new sedan will be sold in approximately 120 countries, including the USA, Japan, China and Thailand.The Sylphy for the Japanese market is produced in Nissan’s Oppama Plant in Yokosuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture.
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.
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. 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. The all new Nissan Slyphy will be available in Japan from this month for 1,937,250 yen ($23564) to 2,389,800 yen ($29,070) including consumption tax.
