Renault-Nissan alliance has resulted in quite a lot of similar cars with minimal differences. The Sunny-Scala and Micra-Pulse are examples of the badge engineering. Near future will see the Renault Duster getting rebadged as a Nissan SUV. When Renault launched the Scala Automatic in petrol guise, what raised a lot of eyebrows was the fact that the Renault sibling got the automatic version ahead of Sunny which was launched before it.Nissan is all set to for Nissan Sunny automatic India launch. It will get the same automatic gearbox as the Scala. The Sunny will be sold in two trim levels, namely the XL and XV with the price if the XL variant being Rs.8.2 lakhs and the dearer sibling costing Rs.9.1 lakhs. Both these prices will be ex-showroom Delhi. These are the approximate expected prices and the actual prices may vary at the time of launch.

The X-Tronic transmission is expected to get an ARAI certified mileage of a whopping 17.97 kilometres for every litre of petrol you’ll put ito it. We believe it will become a better seller than the Scala in automatic version because it will cost around Rs.50,000-Rs.70,000 less than the Scala Automatic. The Scala costs more than the Sunny by around Rs.60,000-Rs.1,00,000 in diesel and petrol guises and we expect the price difference to be carried on to the Sunny Automatic as well.
