The Nissan Sylphy is a compact car built by the Automaker Nissan since 2000. It is the successor of the Nissan Presea and spans over three generations, with the second generation still manufactured for certain markets. It was also marketed under several other model names, in various countries.
The Nissan Sylphy (2012-2013) take second place overall behind the Honda Civic. But the brilliant CVT transmission and longest wheelbase in the class give Nissan Sylphy (2012-2013) class-leading refinement and interior room.
Nissan Sylphy (2012-2013) feels nimble and changes direction keenly. Body control and grip levels are highly commendable. The sharp, light steering however lacks in feedback. When it comes down to driving pleasure, Nissan Sylphy (2012-2013) engages the driver too little, too remotely.
Much thanks to the 15-inch tyres, ride comfort is good over urban bumps and rough surfaces. Road, wind and engine noise are very well-contained at cruising speeds. Adding to the class-leading refinement is the extremely smooth drivetrain. The dashboard looks neat and tidy, with large displays and intuitive-to-use controls. Finding a comfortable seating position is easy, but the steering wheel offers no reach adjustments or audio controls.
Quality + Reliability
The cherry wood trim is convincing enough, giving the dashboard a fine contrast of colours. Build quality is superb and the material quality is generally sound, but some plastics used lack the tactility and polish typically seen in Toyota and Honda models. As for all cars wearing the Nissan badge, we expectNissan Sylphy (2012-2013) to be mechanically reliable in the longer term.
Mating an in-line four 2.0-litre to Nissan’s XTRONIC CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), Nissan Sylphy’s drivetrain is simply one of the smoothest in the class. The engine output of 131 bhp and 191 Nm is no more than modest, but thanks to the slick, brilliant CVT, all output power and torque are fully utilised. As a result, Nissan Sylphy (2012-2013) puts up an adequately quick performance on the roads.
Interior spaciousness is one of Nissan Sylphy’s strong points. Similar to the Honda Civic, its key rival, the Nissan Sylphy has a 2700 mm wheelbase and features an almost flat rear floor, meaning front and rear occupants are well-catered for in terms of room. In fact, the rear legroom is class-leading, probably only matched by the Civic’s. The boot capacity is also class-leading at 504 litres.
Even the interior is good ,recent time, many car owners has installed a inbuilt multifunction car DVD player. Drivers can straight management the car DVD player while generating on the street via steering wheel control function,

Nissan claims the Sylphy can return an excellent 16 km/litre because of the efficient, fuel-saving CVT transmission. We expect both servicing bills and depreciation to be reasonable. The popular Nissan brand, while still not as strong as Honda or Toyota, will enable Nissan Sylphy (2012-2013) to maintain fairly competitive second-hand values.
Value for Money
The obvious and strongest competitors in this mid-size sedan segment would have to be the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla Altis and Mitsubishi Lancer. Under comparison, the Lancer is the weakest of the four, and the Altis shouts boring even if it looks more interesting now. The Civic still remains the overall class-leader, while Nissan Sylphy (2012-2013) leads the class in refinement, interior room and fuel economy (as claimed).

Dual SRS airbags, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution) and BA (Brake Assist) are standard safety features.
The drivetrain comprising the 2.0-litre with the CVT is not only smooth and fuel-saving, but also low in carbon dioxide emissions. Adding to Nissan Sylphy’s list of merits is its class-leading environmental awaren
Quite frankly, it is easily the better car, for both driver and passengers. And it still comes with crucial conveniences such as keyless access and ignition, and a European-style turning signal that winks thrice when you pull it halfway. It is also as spacious, both in the cabin and in the boot.
