Nissan Bluebird Sylphy
|Nissan Bluebird Sylphy|
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.
