According to some recent information our team has got, it seems that another Japanese carmaker is about to reveal its 2019 sports model. Namely, it will be the latest Nissan Silvia S16 which should undergo some significant next-generation updates, although, to be honest, the fans shouldn’t be expecting any surprises here.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Nissan Silvia S16, the first feature that will catch your attention includes its smaller dimensions. Reportedly, this two-door sports car will appear smaller than its predecessor, but besides the cabin, none of the other characteristics and features should be affected. In fact, the new S16 will appear more aerodynamic which will definitely improve its acceleration and overall performance. It will also be more modern and attractive. Some would even say futuristic, thanks to its sloping glassy sunroof. The photos of the concept clearly show that the profile looks sporty and race-inspired. You will notice its longer and sharper nose, but also its rounded and shorter rear end. When it comes to changes and updated, most of the redesign should probably be expected in the front fascia where you will find its wide rhomboidal chrome-framed grille and narrow LED headlights. The front bumper with a larger air intake in it should also be restyled. In the back part of the vehicle, this sport coupe will proudly wear its thin LED taillights and a sporty spoiler.
As we have already mentioned, smaller dimensions of the 2019 Nissan Silvia S16 might lead to less space inside its cabin, but that shouldn’t be a serious issue. The official photos have not shown yet whether its cabin will provide 2+2 seating configuration or it will be able to accommodate five adult passengers. This information simply hasn’t been confirmed. Be that as it may, the interior of the latest S16 should include some serious next-generation updates, especially in terms of technology. You can hope for a larger touch-screen display in the center console with the latest infotainment system and features such as satellite navigation, audio system, USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity. Of course, the latest Silvia will include all those necessary safety systems and driver assist features.
The 2019 Nissan Silvia S16 should either keep its current 1.6-liter turbocharged engine under the hood or introduce a 1.2-liter petrol engine. At least, these two options have been mostly speculated lately. Either of them should deliver around 200 horsepower but the total output and other numbers have still been a mystery. When it comes to transmission, the new S16 should be mated to a six-speed automatic. The other possible engine choices include 1.8 and 2.0-liter, but we hope for more information soon.
2019 Nissan Silvia S16 Release Date and Price
The fans are still waiting for the release date to be announced. If the 2019 Nissan Silvia S16 really hits the market soon, its price should start around $24,000 for a base model.
