    Default The Arch Rivals Series #2- Charmant 82 vs Sunny 82

    As I started the Arch Rivals series... (the first one was Baleno 98 vs City 98) here we will compare any two cars which were direct competitors to each other. They shared pretty much the same looks, specs, features, price tag & same engine category. Based on our experiences, as many of us must have.. discuss the pros n cons of these cars...

    The second competition will be Daihatsu Charmant 1982 against Nissan Sunny 1982

    CHARMANT

    The Arch Rivals Series #2- Charmant 82 vs Sunny 82 -544220



    SUNNY

    The Arch Rivals Series #2- Charmant 82 vs Sunny 82 -544221


    so lets go on..

    The Daihatsu Charmant was a compact sedan built by Daihatsu of Japan, based on the Toyota Corolla. It was replaced by the Daihatsu Applause.

    The Charmant was originally a spin-off of the Toyota Corolla of the 1970s; model changes paralleled that of the Corolla.

    Trim levels were LC, LE and LGX; these continued until 1987 when the range was discontinued in the United Kingdom.

    The A35 body numbered Charmants were equipped with 1300 cc engines. This type of engines were coded as 4K Toyota engines. A 1600 cc (OHC) engine was also available, which could be ordered with a 3-speed semi-automatic transmission.

    The Daihatsu Charmant was aimed at the small executive saloon car market in Britain in the 1980s. Other cars in this class included the Vauxhall Belmont, Volkswagen Jetta, Rover 213/216 and the Ford Orion.

    The 82 sunny belonged to the B11 series.. The B11s were the first front-wheel-drive Sunnys—predating the same shift to front-wheel drive by their main Toyota Corolla rival—and were exported to the United States as the Nissan Sentra from the 1982 model year onwards.

    The B11 series was regarded as one of Nissan's most modern ranges at the time, and was the first to abandon the Datsun name formally (though a small 'Datsun' still appeared on boot lids for the first two years). The wagon was known in its home market as the Nissan Sunny California. It was launched in late 1981 and continued into 1985.

    The B11 was the first Mexico-market Sunny to be named Tsuru.

    A completely unrelated vehicle - albeit using a similar drivetrain - the Sunny-Vanette, was introduced in 1980. This was exported to most markets as the Datsun C20 van. It later became the Nissan Vanette.

    A further spin-off from the Sunny line was the Nissan Laurel Spirit, which was essentially a rebadged Sunny sedan designed to capitalize on the premium image of the larger Laurel line.

    Sold my Charmant today. It was a imported by Grandfather back in early 80s. Very nice car. Very robust and comfortable.

    My dad had this sunny and according to him its the worst sunny/120y Nissan offered.

    Sunny is front wheel. Charmant is rear wheel. Sunny had many variants. Charmant only had this body style and its derived from old toyota corollas. Good car. Always liked it but old and dated even at that time. Sunny was modern with many new things. First front wheel diesel came in it from japan.
