Nissan DAYZ, the first minicar for which Nissan participated in the development from the onset of the product planning phase, achieves fuel economy of 29.2 km/L (in JC08 mode testing)*1 – the best among height wagon-type minicars – thanks to the newly-developed three-cylinder engine, continuously variable transmission (CVT) with auxiliary gearbox, and its lightweight body.
With a dynamic exterior and high-quality feel interior, the new DAYZ adopts the Around View Monitor technology and touch-screen automatic air-conditioning system for the first time in minicars, offering customers greater comfort and convenience than ever before. The car also adopts other enhancements, including super UV-cut heat insulated green glass for the front doors (which filters out 99 percent of UV rays), Emergency Stop Signal, Comfort Flasher and electric automatic retractable door-lock-linked remote control body-colored door mirrors.
Based on the dual-pillar strategy of Zero Emissions and PURE DRIVE*3, Nissan continues its efforts to reduce CO2 emissions throughout its product lineup. DAYZ is one of Nissan’s PURE DRIVE models.

The Around View Monitor (AVM), offered for the first time in a minicar, displays an image of the vehicle from above, using four cameras installed in the front, both sides and rear. Since the AVM image is projected on the driver’s rearview mirror, which also has an auto anti-glare function, a car navigation system is not required to use this feature.
Touch-screen automatic air-conditioning system (standard on X and all Highway STAR grades)
An automatic air-conditioning system with a large piano-black touch screen has been adopted. With a large touch screen and high-intensity white light, the switch can be operated intuitively.
Super UV-cut heat insulated green glass (standard on X and all Highway STAR grades)
Super UV-cut heat insulated green glass is used for the front door glass, which filters out 99 percent of UV rays.
Emergency Stop Signal (standard on all grades)
Hazard warning lights are automatically flashed on and off when depressing the brakes firmly or when the ABS is operated.
Electric automatic retractable door lock-linked remote control body-colored door mirrors (standard on all grades)
Door mirrors automatically open and close aligned with the operation of the door lock/unlock function.
Comfort Flasher (standard on all grades)
The turn signal lights flash three times and then automatically stop after the turn signal lever is lightly pushed.
