Nissan 200SX Models and 200SX History

A compact sports car dating back to the 1970s when Nissan was known as Datsun in the United States, the first 200SX was based on a vehicle called the Silvia in Japan. Introduced in 1977, the small two-door fastback powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine was specially built for the North American driver. In 1980, a modernized Nissan-Datsun 200SX was sold as a two-door coupe or a three-door fastback. Redesigned again for 1984, the 200SX adopted a new front incorporating pop-up headlights. Though the 200SX was conceived with a 2.0-liter engine, other displacement size powerplants have been used in the sports car nameplate. From 1985 to 1987, a turbocharged 200SX was sold in the United States. The Final Silvia-based Nissan-Datsun 200SX was sold in 1988. Succeeded by the 240SX, the 200SX nameplate did make a comeback for the 1995 model year based on the Nissan Sentra's platform. A 1.6-liter twin-cam four-cylinder as well as a 140-horsepower 2.0-liter engine linked with the SE-R trim was available with the second incarnation of the vehicle. The 1998 model year marked the end of the line for the Nissan 200SX.
