2023 Nissan Sylphy Facelift Debuts in China

The 4th generation Nissan Sylphy which made its debut in China back in 2019 has just received a facelift. The refreshed version will then reach the North American markets where it’s marketed as Nissan Sentra.

The Most notable change is up front where the signature V-Motion grille now gets a revised treatment as seen on the current Altima/Teana facelift. This grille design is exclusive for the hybrid Sylphy e-Power; while the standard ICE version gets that with horizontal bars. Apart from refreshed headlights, tail lights & bumpers the rest of the bodywork remains largely unchanged. However new alloy wheels designs are offered which come in 16 and 17-inch iterations depending on the variant.
