As if they do not have enough fast and strong models, 2020 Nissan Silvia S16 should be a great addition to the Nissan sports class. The reason is changing of the main course and moving to luxury brands offers, mostly because of the competition and high demands in that field. That is why we saw many similarities with the 370Z Nismo, but also many unique details in Silvia S16 when it first showed at 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.
It is not easy to describe 2020 Nissan Silvia S16 since it has many similarities with the competition, but also many advances from them. It is like sports luxury cars we know for, like Mazda RX9, but much more elegant and futuristic. There is thin and long front end with V between the lights, framed with LED line as daylight. The rear end is sedan-like squared, decorated with modernly designed rear lights.
According to the design of the cabin in 2020 Nissan Silvia S16, so similar to the GT-R model, obviously is planned to be a luxury sporty car. It should have a large and comfortable cabin, wrapped in light brown and dark leather, with chromatic details on the dashboard. The cabin looks bunched with buttons and commands at first glance, but it is very practical, with a visible large touchscreen on the top of the dashboard and commands below it. The equipment includes an improved infotainment system and Alcantara.
As we were able to hear, 2020 Nissan Silvia S16 will get maybe too slow and simple engines under the hood. There are rumors that the manufacturer will put 2.0-liter with 275-300 horsepower of strength and a lower version with 1.5-liter that produces 175 horsepower of strength. However, they also plan to make a hybrid version of Silvia S16, but that is still in the rumors domain. Needless to say, this is way below the competition, like Chevrolet Chevelle SS with its 455 horsepower of strength and 455 pound-feet of torque in strong and powerful 6.2-liter V8 petrol engine.
2020 Nissan Silvia S16 Release Date and Price
Unfortunately, the price of 2020 Nissan Silvia S16 is planned to be around $30,000 and higher than that. Fans will recall the same price for 370Z Nismo, meaning the same price for a robust and heavy machine with the slower engine, but that could be good news for Nismo fans. That means that Nismo will be improved, lightweight and fast sports car with the same price as Silvia S16, while Silvia S16 will be a sedan-like sports large elegant car for speed driving lovers. However, releasing should be in spring next year.
