Nissan Sunny CVT : First Drive
Self-shifting transmissions are a good thing – regardless of whether they’re proper automatics or of the constantly varying gear ratio type. They help us be better human beings, especially when you’re stuck in the worst traffic jams on this planet and you’re slowly inching forward by a few millimetres or so every fifteen seconds. In that sense, a well-tuned automatic can actually offer up the best anger management therapy to deal with road rage emanating out of overheating engines and rising tempers.
The only problem with most automatics has been that they’ve generally been perceived to be less efficient than their manual counterparts up until recently, but quite frankly, modern technology has changed all that. So what would you think of a mid-size Sedan with enough space in the rear to let a camel stretch its legs comfortably, the convenience of a CVT and an expected sticker price lower than most of its competitors? That just about sums up the Nissan Sunny CVT then!
