It is equipped with electrically adjustable outside rear view mirrors with integrated turn indicators and flash chrome around the windows. The flared wheel arches have been fitted to 15-inch Y-Spoke alloy wheels. On the inside, the Sunny facelift features a leather wrapped steering, aluminium inserts and a piano black finish is given to the new centre console. The vehicle also gets leather seats which offers rich feel.

First launched in 2012, Nissan Evalia failed to generate volumes for the company. The vehicle lacks important features like air conditioning for rear passengers, rear wiper/washer and many more. However, Nissan launched the facelifted model in October, 2013 which checked several issues. The new model gets changes based on the extensive customer feedback. The Evalia facelift is powered by a 1.5-litre diesel engine that churns out a maximum power output of 85bhp and 200Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission gearbox.
