At the very first sight, the concept of the 2017 Nissan Silvia S16 looks absolutely amazing, but will the production car be as great as the concept? Well, we are talking about Nissan and they can do everything, so we assume that the production car will take most of the design elements, engines, and interior of the concept. The Nissan Silvia S16 is not a very popular model, but the company intends to bring it to a completely new level with the changes they decided to make for the 2017 model year. This model has undergone many changes and improvements but it seems that the 2017 model will be much different from the previous generations. Let’s find what the Nisan Silvia S16 2017 brings to the table.
2017 Nissan Silvia S16 Exterior
The first thing we would like to present you is that the new Silvia S16 will be few inches shorter and less wide than the current model. Therefore, the vehicle will lose several of the 175 inches of length and several of the 65 inches of width. Even though it will keep its overall design, it will sport some new styling cues and features that will make it sleeker and more appealing than its predecessor.
On the front fascia, slightly refreshed, trademark grille will be present. The sharp looking headlights will cooperate with the grille to give the coupe rather aggressive and yet stylish design. The rear end of the car will be adorned by a new spoiler and two exhaust pipes. The low profile of the vehicle will remain intact.
Nissan Silvia S16 2017 Interior
As far as the interior design of the 2017 Nissan Silvia S16 is concerned, it will be significantly changed but the changes are characterized as evolutionary rather than revolutionary. The first and the most noticeable change is that everything will driver-oriented. The company announced that there will be some changes in terms of materials, but since we still talk about the concept, there are not many details.
Generally, we expect to see more premium materials. There are some rumors that the cabin will be more spacious, but the carmaker hasn’t published anything so far. What we know for certain is that the cabin will benefit from latest technological features such as a new infotainment system, a touchscreen display, a new sound system, ABS, navigation, blind spot monitoring, stability control and many other safety and infotainment features.

However, it seems that the 2.0-liter engine won’t be the only option. A 1.8 liter engine that makes 156 horses and 180 lb-ft of torque might also be available.
