This vehicle is a part of Nissan’s long-running line of sport coupes based on the Nissan S platform. The very first Nissan Silvia debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show, in September 1964. The first model wasn’t named „Silvia“, but „Datsun Coupe 1500“ and only 554 units were produced, each one of them with hand-built, unique body panels . The amount of time invested in crafting these vehicles made them very expensive, with the purchase price almost twice as large as the next model. The production of the first model was terminated in 1968, and a new Silvia S10 emerged in 1974. This model was much more popular than its predecessor and also, one of the first cars ever that featured early version of emission control technology systems, but only for units produced in Japan. After that, Nissan introduced five more iterations of Silvia, S110, S12, S13, S14 and S15 which was produced until 2002 and sold only in Japan, Australia and New Zealand. However, with the all new 2015 Nissan Silvia S16, Nissan definitely plans to regain its popularity around the world.
2015 Nissan Silvia S16 Exterior and Interior
This angry-looking, neoteric and appealing vehicle will have a good chance to strongly face its competitors. The new 2015 Nissan Silvia S16 will be slightly smaller than its predecessor. It is going to be 175 inches long and 67 inches wide, which contributes to its sleek and sporty-looking style. Designers made sure that this vehicle will be more efficient by making changes on the outside. Interior wise, rumor is there’s going to be more space for the passengers, supplying maximum support during the long rides, so that even five passengers can travel more comfortable, but nothing is yet confirmed. Little is known, since this car is still a concept. One thing is sure, this vehicle will not lack the latest tech gadgets. It will feature Bluetooth connectivity, infotainment system, satellite navigation system and also cruise control. It is expected that the central point of the board will feature the touchscreen. All things considered, a lot of improvements are expected from this model, especially since Silvia is not as popular as other Nissan’s vehicles.
Engine of 2015 Nissan Silvia S16
The engine hidden beneath the hood of the new 2015 Nissan Silvia S16 will, most probably, be a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine. The word Is, Silvia’s engine will share similar components with the current Nissan Juke which is equipped with a 1.6-liter turbo inline-4. It is expected that this powertrain will produce around 200 bhp with a maximum torque output of around 217 Ib ft. That would not be a disappointing figure, considering 2015 Nissan Silvia S16 is designed to be a family vehicle. As speculated, the new Silvia will be a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive coupe with automatic transmission that could benefit from the Nissan/Renault cooperation. There is a chance that Silvia will feature a 1.8 liter turbo that is used in the Mercedes C180, but this option would only produce around 156 bhp and 184 Ib ft.

The brand new 2015 Nissan Silvia S16 should be revealed at the beginning of 2016 at the Tokyo Motor Show. The time is nearly up, but the prices are not yet confirmed. However, it is safe to assume it’s going to be around $24,000.
