Nissan Lannia is going Sporty in China

Nissan is developing a sports package for the Nissan Lannia sedan. The package includes red winglets under the bumpers, red mirrors (!), red strips on the doors, and a choice between two rear wings, one it seems with LED lights inside.

The sport package will debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April and launch on the Chinese car market around the same time. There will be no mechanical changes, which means the sportpack equipped car will probably be slower than the standard car because of the extra drag caused by all the extra plastic.

The Lannia was launched in October last year, powered by a 1.6 liter four-cylinder petrol with 126hp and 154nm, mated to a six-speed manual or a CVT. Price starts at 105.900 yuan and ends at 143.900 yuan. The Sport Package will cost around 5000 yuan.
