Dubbed the Nissan Sylphy Super Sports Sedan (SSS), the car now comes with a perkier drivetrain and enhanced looks inside and out.

With unpredictable market conditions in Singapore, car manufacturers are finding it hard to bring in newer and nicer cars, in an event that the cars are unable to sell as well as they would like them to.

Thus, in order to keep things fun and fresh, carmakers are adding optional features such as bodykits and spoilers as standard on more popular cars. Volkswagen has done it with the Jetta, Toyota tried the same formula with the Camry and, now, Nissan is doing it with its well-received Sylphy.

Not only has the touchscreen been upsized and upgraded, the cabin now sports brushed metal trims


 
Up close and Personal

Enhancements on its sheet metal, although slight, are relatively obvious. Bodykit, side skirts as well as a rear spoiler have been added onto the car, giving the car the opportunity to steer away from the 'boring' persona.

The dimensions of the car still remain at 4,625mm, 1,760mm and 1,495mm (L x W x H), but because of the add-ons, the car appears to have a more hunkered down stance than the regular Sylphy.


17-inch lightweight alloy rims have also been added to the car, which certainly better fill the wheel arches than the standard 16-inch wheels on the regular model.

Unlike the outside, changes on the inside aren't as apparent. What used to be cladded in wooden trims and plastics on the centre console and side door handle have been substituted to brushed metal trim. While that's something to boast about on paper, the difference isn't as easily noticeable as say an upholstery upgrade from fabric to leather.

At 510 litres, the Sylphy's boot space is more generous than the Toyota Altis, the Mazda3 Sedan and even the Kia Forte K3


 
More obvious, however, is the locally fitted standard 7.8-inch touchscreen, which has been upsized and upgraded from the minute 4.3-inch.
