The B120 industrial truck debuted in Gregorian calendar month 1971, supported the B110 railway car chassis. The B120 used identical distance and running gear of the Datsun 1200 sedans, coupé and wagon models. Initially it used identical chrome steel grille because the 1200 sedan, and therefore the rectangular gauges of the quality model B110s. Both regular (B120) and long-bed (GB120) models were offered. After the 1200 automobile series ceased production the B120 continuing. In bound markets like African country, the B120 was actually badged as the "120Y" and sold as part of the updated 120Y range.[13] The It was assembled locally and marketed in New Sjaelland throughout the Nineteen Eighties in 2 trims: "RoadStar" and "SportStar". It was capable of forty nine mpg‑US (4.8 L/100 km; 59 mpg‑imp). B120s weren't oversubscribed in North America, part because of the United States of America "Chicken Tax" and part as a result of perceptions of auto size meant that the 620/720 series were thought-about little pickups.

Exported as the Datsun 120Y and Datsun B-210 (in North America), the third generation (1973–1978) Sunny was extremely popular as it debuted during the 1973 oil crisis. It was initial shown on one could 1973 in Japan, as the 1.2 or the 1.4-litre glorious. Both engines were offered in 2 completely different levels of output, from the lowest powered 68 PS (50 kW) 1.2 to the 95 PS (70 kW) Excellent GX Coupe.[20] Six body designs were offered: the four-door sedan, two-door sedan, two-door fastback, three-door wagon, five-door wagon, and a three-door van. The machine maintained its fastback styling, however currently featured a full hatchback door instead of the tiny lid of the previous generation Sunny. The wagon and van weren't offered in North America. In 1975, Japan models were fitted with emission management technology, called Nissan NAPS to be in compliance with Japanese Government emission control regulations enforced that year.

The connected Sunny Excellents continued  till 1976 as PB210 models, initially fitted with a one.4-litre L14 engine. American market B210s were the primary Sunnys to own the larger five mph (8 km/h) collision bumpers, thanks to the USA's safety standards at the time. Other markets continued  with the a lot of tightly-fitted chrome bumpers. In most markets, the B210 line featured as the only engine option a re-designed A12 engine. As usual for Japan, the wagon (three- and five-door models alike) was marketed as a van for commercial use, where it was only available with the lowest-powered 1.2 engine (VB210). The van, in its lowest standard equipment level, came equipped with a three-speed manual gearbox with a column-mounted shift lever.[21]

This chassis shaped the premise for the S10 underpinning the Nisan bird genus machine, which allowed Nissan to sell the Sunny Coupe at two Nissan Japanese dealership networks. The Sunny was exclusive to Nisan Satio Store, whereas the bird genus was exclusive to Nisan blue blood Store, aboard the Nisan Skyline.

Facelift (B211) Edit

Nissan Sunny GL(B211, Japanese Domestic Market)

B211 is that the chassis code for the minor facelift of the B210, introduced in February 1976. It enclosed a modified grille and alternative minor changes, like new wing mirrors and hubcaps. The most vital variations were underneath the hood, wherever the engines had been upgraded to satisfy Japan's 1976 emissions standards.[22] The Sunny Excellent now only came fitted with the larger 1.6-litre engine, with the additional compact A14 engine commutation the L14 and being put in within the regular bodied model (HB211). The Excellent's chassis code changed from PB210 to GB211 and was now considered a trim-level option for the regular B211 rather than a separate model. Although regular production in Japan yet as sales in most countries led to late 1977 for the 1978 model year, the B210 series continued  to be made by Nissan South Africa through 1980. The van models were not replaced until later.

North America Edit

The Datsun B-210 continued  to be the fuel-economy leader in North America and it had been one in all the smallest amount dearly-won cars offered. This was partially because of the sunshine metal; tiny A13 or A14 engine with OHV technology and a really basic vinyl interior utilized in its construction. Introduced for one974 with a 1.3-litre four, this was replaced by a larger and more powerful 1.4-litre version for 1975.[23] This engine remained in use, continuing to be installed in the next generation B210. At the time, their body designs were popular consumers – in the main the hatchback auto because the sedans were thought-about by some to be less appealing. Datsun dealers were tutored to explain the auto as having "the image of a Mini-Z-Car".[23] The 1978 B-210 (American model) with five-speed transmission was rated by the us Environmental Protection Agency at fifty mpg‑US (4.7 L/100 km; 60 mpg‑imp) highway fuel economy.

Road & Track was somewhat essential of the B-210 in their 1975 test[citation needed]. They criticized the "modest performance" of the "peppy" engine, but were impressed with its 27 mpg‑US (8.7 L/100 km; 32 mpg‑imp) fuel economy. B210 pricing started at US$2849 that year. The "Datsun Honeybee" was a special edition consisting principally of look elements. Nonetheless, the Honeybee is now considered a collector's car among Datsun enthusiasts.

US-market models were fitted with these A-series engines (years given are model years):

1974: A13 engine, 1.3 L (1288 cc) OHV I4

1975–1978: A14 engine, 1.4 L (1397 cc) OHV I4. Power in 1975 was seventy or sixty eight H.P. (52 or fifty one kW) (SAE Net) in 49-state versus Golden State trim - the regular version took leaded fuel and trusted an EGR system for air cleansing, whereas the unleaded Golden State cars have a converter. Gross horsepower ratings are 80 and 78 respectively.[23]

A extremely changed "ground effect" 120Y fastback auto is that the quickest Datsun/Nissan within the world. Tom Burkland's "411 To Bonneville" command the B/BFCC record at Bonneville from August 1985 to August 2011 with a speed of 294.868 mph (474.544 km/h). SCTA records

Oceania Edit

Despite earlier misgivings, the 120Y, when finally launched in New Zealand in 1974, proved popular with Nissan NZ. It eventually assembled some cars in a very temporary CKD plant within the city community of Mount Roskill, before the new plant in Wiri was completed later within the decade. Four-door sedans and three-and five-door wagons were designed regionally and were supplemented by some coupés foreign settled from Japan.

The 120Y was assembled from kits in Melbourne, Australia and boasted disc brakes (although not power assisted), alternator, 4 speed gearbox, radial tyres, radio and mud flaps as standard, most of which were options on other makes. The modest performance and strictly typical style were offset by glorious fuel economy and a more robust normal of build. The 120Y was sharply criticized by magazines like Wheels of Australia, which felt that it offered no true improvement on its predecessor. That wasn't stunning as long as the B110 platform was carried over, but used a slightly revised A12 engine. Like some Nissans of this period, it was considered overstyled. In New Zealand and Australia there was additionally the "Datsun SSS" edition B210, that had minor aesthetic variations to the regular B210.

In the South African market the B210 was assembled regionally from December 1975 till 1983, replacement the previous "Datsun 1200". South African "Y-series" cars, as they were referred to as regionally, additionally featured L14 and L16 engine choices, still as 2 special editions of B210 automobile, badged because the 140Z and 160Z. The 140Z featured a high performance camshaft, freeflow exhaust and twin 40 mm Dell'orto carburettors, while the 160Z featured twin Hitachi (SU type) carburetors. Both had four-speed transmissions. The standard 120Y has the 1171 cc A12 engine as already employed in the 1200, with forty nine kilowatt (67 PS; sixty six hp) at 6000 rate. The well-equipped 140Y GX had a 1428 cc 70 kW (95 PS; 94 hp) L14 motor and was also available as a two-door liftback coupé.[24] The only other bodywork available at the time of introduction was a four-door sedan; later a four-door wagon joined the lineup. All South African Datsun Y's received the longer Sunny glorious front sheet-metal, permitting the fitting of the L14 engine. In Oct 1976, a version of the 140Y with a three-speed transmission appeared, which had a 62 kW (84 PS; 83 hp) engine.[25]

During 1978 the Y-series received a facelift, which mostly consisted of a retouched front grille. Datsun-Nissan African country additionally set to suit the larger L16 engine. This motor, currently with DIN ratings, created fifty seven kilowatt (77 PS; seventy six hp) in GX specifications and seventy kilowatt (95 PS; ninety four hp) within the 160Z. The 140Y sedan received the new A14 engine, whereas the 140Y machine maintained the sooner L14 unit.[26] The 160Z appeared in November 1978, with 120 cars built that year, and 121 built in 1979.

Europe Edit

When introduced in the UK, the 120Y quickly gained popularity, further strengthening Datsun's position, helping it to gain second place amongst foreign imports. The automotive's quality was helped by high instrumentality levels for a car of this size, whereas additionally being competitively priced still as Datsun cars have a name for being reliable, whereas at an equivalent time UK-manufactured automotives were briefly offer because of the regular strikes and stoppages touching British car plants. British Leyland was notably arduous hit by these crises, while at the same time several of its model ranges were gaining a reputation for being unreliable and badly-built.

Datsun 120Y Sunny (B310) sedan

This is the last Sunny sold  beneath the "Datsun" whole in Japan. The final rear-wheel-drive Sunny from model year 1978 to 1982 featured varied variants, as well as a fastback machine still as additional squared-off, utilitarian models with three and five doors, a coupé, and two- and four-door sedans. They were initial introduced in Oct 1977, going on sale on 21 November in Japan.[29] At home they only received the new A12A engine and the slightly larger A14, although the Van continuing to receive the sooner, smaller, A12 engine. The "Excellent" trim package was out of print because the prime level model, and the B211 van continued to be built for a little while longer. In Japan on February 1978 the Sunny Coupe 1400SGX-E and the 1400GX-E appeared, as a replacement for the previous Sunny Excellent Coupe. The "E" denotes multiport mechanical system, an option offered only in Japan. This generation was additionally the last utilizing front engine and rear-wheel drive powertrains.

These models appeared with Datsun 120Y, 130Y, 140Y and 150Y badges in some markets (reflecting the engine size) tho' Sunny was more and more used for export, too. The North yank version was marketed because the Datsun 210. The B310 was proverbial for its high instrumentality levels and build quality at the time. It was on the market with an equivalent A-series engines as its forerunner though the B210's ex gratia 63-series five-speed transmission was replaced with the additional compact and lighter 60-series unit, with a standard gear pattern.[30] On all body variants except the Van and "squareback" wagon, the leaf spring rear suspension was replaced by a more advanced coil spring four-link configuration, while the front had struts with coilover springs.[29] aside from that, the chassis was very similar to that of the B210, albeit with a beefier front suspension and a relocated fuel tank in the sedans. It was currently at a lower place the ground of the trunk, releasing up extra space for baggage.[31] The body was designed to provide fewer moisture traps, helping protect the car against rust, whereas value-added breadth meant further area, particularly for the rear seat passengers.[31]

In 1980, the B310 was given a light facelift, with a smoothed off front end, a grille with square headlamps, and a redesigned dashboard. In November 1980 the A12A and A14 engines were replaced by the marginally larger A13 and A15 versions within the Japanese markets. At the tip of 1981 car versions of the B310 were replaced by the front-wheel drive B11 Sunny, although the Vans continued to be built for a few more years. With the tip of car production in Oct 1981, the Van models chassis codes was modified and that they became the VB312 series.

In North America, the sole wagon offered was the fastback version. In Japan, this fastback wagon was a special model known as the Sunny California, geared toward non-public patrons in contrast to the square-backed 3-and 5-door Sunny Van (although for the japanese market these vans were always fully glazed and usually had a back seat) meant for the long-standing Japanese commercial wagon market. In most alternative markets the a lot of ancient two-box wagon was offered, either alone or aboard the fastback, and some countries where "no rear side glass" was part of a legal definition of a "light truck" got panelled-in versions of the three-door. The van versions additionally differed in this they preserved the spring suspension from the B210, and in most markets had a a lot of spartan interior trim with vinyl lined seats. The five-door van was discontinued in November 1982 when the new and even boxier Nissan AD range was introduced. In Gregorian calendar month 1983 the AD appeared in a very three-door version, which means that the VB310 was finally retired.

This model marked the primary and solely time the "Sunny" name was utilized in Australia. It was assembled there by AMI. This chassis, at the side of the A10 chassis on the 160J/Violet/Stanza fashioned the premise for the S110 chassis on the Jewish calendar month genus Silvia.

The 210 was available in North America as a two- or four-door sedan, a five-door wagon (the sloping fastback style), or as a three-door hatchback coupé.[32] At the time of introduction all models, excepting the wagon with the automated transmission, received the carryover 1.4 liter A14 engine with 65 hp (48 kW). The automatic wagon (soon all wagons) received the somewhat larger A15 engine with sixty seven power unit (50 kW).[31]

New for 1981, the special "210 MPG" model was a small-port A14 with five-speed overdrive transmission and achieved forty mpg‑US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg‑imp) per US standards.[32] For 1981, this was the only 1.4 available.

Introduced in late 1981 (at the Tokyo Motor Show), the B11s were the first front-wheel-drive Sunnys, predating by a year and a half the switch to front-wheel drive by their main Toyota gyre rival, and were exported to the United States as the Nissan Sentra from the 1982 model year onwards. European sales began in May 1982, with this version of the Sunny going on sale at a time when front-wheel drive was quickly becoming the most popular layout on family cars in Europe. The B11 series shared its engines and much of its underpinnings with the Nissan Pulsar (N12) which launched around the same time, effectively providing the hatchback body style in this size category that within the European market was changing into the wide most popular configuration. Because the Sunny and Cherry/Pulsar had big considerably to fill this market would like, the supermini size class was filled by the Nissan Micra/March that also launched the same year. Ultimately, the Sunny and Cherry/Pulsar lines converged in the European market for the N13 generation in 1986.

The chassis code came to the first "B" designation, then added "11" to signify a new start. The B11 was the first Sunny to be available with a diesel engine, the 61 PS (45 kW) CD17 of 1.7 litres. Most markets received 1.3 or 1.5-litre four-cylinder engines, although for some markets with strict taxation (such as Greece), the 50 PS (37 kW) 1-litre E10 engine was also available.[36] The 1.3 and 1.5 as sold-out in Europe have sixty and seventy five PS (44 and five kW) severally.

The Laurel Spirit was exported because the "Nissan Sunny Maxima SGL", that was sold  in restricted numbers within the uk. This wasn't in any means associated with the a lot of larger "Bluebird Maxima" (which was merely simply sold  because the "Maxima" within the United States). The "Sunny Maxima" line consisted solely of upgrades like a sunshine-roof, increased exterior trim, only available with a five-speed manual, chrome tailpipe, dual waveband radio meeting United Kingdom radio authority specifications, and deluxe carpeted floor mats. The B11 Sunny was originally sold in the United Kingdom in 1.3 DX, 1.3 GL, 1.5 DX, 1.5 GL, 1.5 GL Auto, 1.5 SGL and 1.5 SGL Spirit variants.

In 1982, the Sunny platform was wont to introduce a replacement MPV body vogue in Japan, referred to as the Nissan grassland. It was introduced at Nissan Bluebird Store locations and went on to be sold  globally, though this idea didn't kick off in Europe till the massive success of the Renault Scénic in the late 1990s.

The B11 series was thought to be one in every of Nissan's hottest ranges at the time, and was the primary to abandon the Datsun name formally (though atiny low 'Datsun' still appeared on boot lids for the primary 2 years). The wagon was better-known in its home market because the "Nissan Sunny California", and Nissan put in the turbocharged engine in October 1983 for Japanese customers solely. It was launched in late 1981 and continued  into 1985. After the succeeding B12 had been conferred, the B11 Sunny soldiered on because the "Sunny 130Y" as a lower-cost different in bound export markets, including Malaysia; production there continued well into the nineties. While a hatchback version was available for a little while in Japan (and very briefly in North America), this body style was built in comparably small numbers as the Pulsar generally replaced the hatchback in most markets. The two-door sedan was solely sold  in North America, with Sentra badges.

The station wagon model remained in production until 1990, as no estate version of the next generation Sunny was produced.

The B11 was the first Sunny to be badged in Mexico as the Nissan Tsuru, a nameplate used until 2017, when it was discontinued, and replaced with the Versa. See Nissan Sentra for more.

A further spin-off from the Sunny line was the Nissan Laurel Spirit (in Japanese), which was essentially a rebadged and better equipped Sunny sedan designed to capitalize on the premium image of the larger Nissan Laurel. The Laurel Spirit was exclusive to Nissan Motor Store that sold  the Laurel, whereas the Sunny remained exclusive to Nissan Satio Store. The Laurel Spirit was offered in four trim packages, starting with the LT, LT-G, LF, XJ, and the XJ-E denoting a fuel injected E15E engine. In 1983 the highest level XJ was put in with a turbocharger, selected because the Laurel Spirit Turbo XJ.

The fuel injected one.5 L turbo was introduced to Japan only September 1982, offered only in the 3-door hatchback body style, and was called the "Sunny Turbo Leprix", and was rarely exported. The installation of a turbo on the highest level model enabled Nissan to supply a performance version while not unduly increasing emission liabilities for Japanese consumers, whereas providing higher fuel potency and lower emissions than a bigger, conventionally tuned engine. The turbo and the diesel were both later additions to the lineup, having been presented in September 1982.[36] The Sunny Turbo Leprix was sold in the United Kingdom as the "Sunny Maxima Coupe", aboard the "Sunny Maxima" sedan.

As usual, Nissan's Taiwanese subsidiary Yue dialect Loong assembled an area version of the B11 Sunny. It was out there as a four-door sedan or a five-door wagon, with 1.2-, 1.3-, and 1.5-litre engines.[37] It was marketed as the YLN 311 SD or GX, depending on equipment levels. Taiwanese Sunnys were fitted with the larger bumpers as utilized in the North yank markets; it's unknown why this is often the case.

Nissan AD Edit

The Sunny five-door machine was additionally introduced as a panel truck referred to as the Nissan AD van, using the E15S, the E13S, and the CD17 diesel engine.
