The Nissan Bluebird Sylphy is a compact car made by Nissan. The first Bluebird Sylphy is the Pulsar 4-door sedan which sold in the Japanese domestic market only in order to keep the Bluebird name alive, due to the car's traditional competitor the Toyota Corona. After the Pulsar was discontinued, and replaced by the Tiida, Versa or Latio, the Bluebird Sylphy became an independent model which does not have any relationship with the export model.

The G10 Bluebird Sylphy is basically the N16 Pulsar with a more luxury touch. The Bluebird Sylphy has a vertical chrome grill. Engine choice are the 1.5 QG15DE, 1.6 L QG16DE, 1.8 L QG18DE, and the 2.0 L QR20DE. A five-speed manual transmission is only for the 1.5 L cars, others have a four-speed automatic transmission. The 4WD is only offered for the 1.8 L model.

For the export market, a similar car is sold as Pulsar in Australia, Sunny in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, and Middle East, Sentra in Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia and Almera in Brunei.

For 2004, the Bluebird Sylphy received minor changes with a revised grill, and an all-new rear end with Teana-like tail lights.

In the 2009 Egyptian model, Nissan added two airbags (driver+front passenger), also ABS,EBD,BA brakes and they changed the front lights and grill, also the rear was edited, but was released as Nissan Sunny, because the second generation model is available in same market with the Bluebird Sylphy name.[1]

A Nissan Bluebird Sylphy in Malaysia, marketed as the Nissan Sylphy.

The Nissan Bluebird Sylphy uses Nissan's B platform,[2] and the model code is G11. This car was launched at the Tokyo Motor Show 2005.

The Nissan Bluebird Sylphy uses the same engine as the Nissan Tiida/Versa/Latio, which is the HR15DE 1.5 L engine and a whole new MR20DE 2.0 L engine. The 2.0 L version of Nissan Bluebird Sylphy uses Nissan's Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (Xtronic-CVT). This combination results in smooth and powerful acceleration combined with the fuel economy of a 1.8 L engine.

The Sylphy has the most spacious interior space and the biggest boot (504 L) in its class. The rear legroom almost matches that of the Nissan Teana and Toyota Camry.

Starting from 2008, the Bluebird Sylphy is also available for the export market, as the Nissan Sylphy. The Sylphy is sold in China, and some South East Asian countries. In Taiwan the Yulon Motor Company is manufacturing the Bluebird Sylphy as a normal Nissan Bluebird.[3]
