Here’s the press release with more.
Nissan won two prestigious awards as part of the 2019-2020 Japan Car of the Year competition: The all-new Nissan Dayz won the Small Mobility Award, and the new Nissan Skyline with ProPILOT 2.0 technology took the Best Innovation Award.
Nissan Intelligent Mobility is the company’s vision for changing how vehicles are powered, driven and connected with society.
The new Nissan Dayz features exterior proportions that create a sense of sturdy reliability. The interior offers luxurious roominess beyond the norm for the kei car segment. The car’s newly developed platform enhances power, performance and fuel efficiency. The Dayz is also the first kei car to offer Nissan’s ProPILOT advanced driver assistance system and the SOS Call advanced automatic accident reporting system.
The hybrid version of the new Nissan Skyline is equipped with ProPILOT 2.0, designed for on-ramp to off-ramp (ramp-to-ramp) highway driving. ProPILOT 2.0 engages with the vehicle’s navigation system to help maneuver the car according to a predefined route on designated roadways. The system also enables hands-off driving while cruising in a single lane, assisting the driver with passing, lane diversions and lane exiting.
Also new for the Skyline is an available 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo VR30DDTT engine, with output of up to 400 horsepower (400R), the most ever offered in the model’s 62-year history.
