his is a rendering by a Japanese magazine of the next-generation Nissan Bluebird Sylphy. Offered only in greater China and Southeast Asia outside Japan, the Bluebird Sylphy has roots that can be traced way back to the Nissan Pulsar/Sentra/Sunny, which has now become the Nissan Tiida/Versa/Latio.
According to the report, Nissan intends to merge the current Bluebird Sylphy and the Latio into a single C-segment model codenamed L12F; after all, both models are based on Nissan’s B-platform and share two in-line four-cylinder engines, the 1.5-litre HR15DE , 1.6-litre HR16DE,1.8-litre MR16DE & 2.0-litre MR16DE.
Featuring a grille and profile similar to Nissan Cefiro’s, the rendered Bluebird Sylphy offers more presence and looks miles better than the two models it is said to replace. Look for the next-generation Bluebird Sylphy to debut sometime in 2012, if there is any truth to the report.
