Transformers Revenge of The Fallen

Friday, June 27, 2008


Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn. Bhd. (ETCM) has launched the all-new Nissan Sylphy (pronounced SIL-fi), a 2.0L mid size sedan today. First launched in Japan, the Sylphy is one of Nissan’s best selling models at over 160,000 units sold in 10 markets worldwide.

Inside the new Sylphy lies an all-aluminium MR20DE 4-cylinder DOHC powerplant, producing 131hp at 5,200rpm and maximum torque of 191Nm at 4,400rpm. The engine provides 90% of torque from 2,000rpm onwards, making it ever-responsive and fun to drive at low speeds.

Power is transferred to all wheels via Nissan’s 3rd Generation Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) gearbox for jerk-free gear changes, a boon for overall passenger comfort and smoother acceleration. Navigating the large vehicle is powered by EPS (Electric Power Steering), eliminating power and space wastage altogether. The dashboard is tinged with European-looking curves, accentuating an S-shaped premium outlook. Along the centre gear knob column is a nifty super-multiconsole for all sorts of storage, deep enough to store a handbag, briefcase or even a laptop bag. The glove box features a 2-tier compartment that can gobble up to 10 litres of load.

Besides providing a luxurious ambiance, special treatment has been added in the Sylphy’s upholstery with its scratch-proof ‘Masumi’ seat material. Roominess is best to describe the rear passenger’s legroom at 680mm, and a flat-floor set up ideal for leg-stretching during long-haul journeys. The interior of the Sylphy deserves the praises with its soothing and relaxing environment. Cabin temperature is self-regulated with an automatic air-conditioning system via the three homogeneous dials on the dashboard, ensuring constant flow of fresh, cool air.

Safety is not compromised at all in the Sylphy especially when the car is awarded with a 6-star Rating for Safety by the Japanese New Car Assessment Program. With a combo of braking technologies, consisting of EBD (Electric Brake-force Distribution) ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and BA (Brake Assist), one can never feel more assured than driving a Sylphy.

Reducing impact during collisions is managed by a host of other safety features onboard the Sylphy. The driver and front passenger is protected with dual SRS airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioners with load limiter, and front seats with active head restraints also.

The Sylphy is available only in a 2.0l engine with CVT, and in two packages - Luxury or Comfort. There are 6 colours to choose from - Cecil Blue, Chardonnay Gold, Tungsten Silver, Twilight Grey, Sapphire Black and Brilliant White. Prices are fixed at RM112,800 (on-the-road with insurance) for the Comfort package. The Luxury package adds leather in its interiors, 6-CD changer with MP3 support, and full V-Kool tinting on all windows, for an additional RM4,000.

The all-new Sylphy is backed by a 3-year or 100,000km (whichever comes first) warranty. For more details on the Sylphy, or book a test drive, head on to http://www.sylphy.com.my/ - The STaR ONLiNe
