Introduction

Riding on this success of the second-generation Nissan Sylphy (the first being known more commonly as the Sunny), the Japanese car-manufacturer launched the third generation of the Sylphy last year, with a 1.8 litre as well as a 1.6 litre version available.

In a bid to further attract the power-savvy new-generation driver, Nissan has now launched its 1.6 litre variant of the Sylphy Super Sports Sedan, or Sylphy SSS for short.
