i noted that, it is unfortunate that Nissan take the Bluebird name and Sentra/Sunny/Pulsar body and combined them to become Bluebird Sylphy.
I can say that Nissan is getting a little confused, dont u think? maybe that was the reason they almost went into bankruptcy before Renault took over.
erm, by the way... could u let me know what happens to the new Sentra as per the pciture? where is its positioned? above the latio and below it? or is it somewhere in the middle between latio and sylphy?
The new Sentra USA is at the same position as Sylphy under C-segment at 1 level above Latio at the border between B-segment and C-segment. 1 of Nissan marketing strategy to have an edge over Vios and City under B-segment market. Unfortunately, the Sylphy does not share the same Renault chasis frame used in the new Sentra USA. Otherwise Sylphy would have wide body instead of narrow 1695mm that could hardly fit 3 adults at the back due to thick door panels. It's even narrower than N16 despite having long wheelbase at 2700mm vs N16 2530mm.
I think Nissan manufacturer is a little confused at naming cars. Not to say just the name of the models, even the brand itself. It changed from Datsun to Nissan. So are the cars:
1) new 1989 Sunny renamed to Sentra so that old model could still be sold under the name of Sunny
2) Sentra being upgraded in size so the name turned into Bluebird Sylphy.
3) Actual Bluebird being enlarged from C to D segment then being renamed to Altima.
4) Local market bluebird is foul language so being replaced by Maxima aka Cefiro
5) and now Cefiro being renamed as Teana.
Lol, like father like son.
