Nissan Cherry Overview

The Nissan Cherry is classed as a small family car which was produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturing company Nissan. This vehicle was in production from 1978 to 1986 and was also known as the Datsun Cherry in its earlier years. This was the first front-wheel drive car to be produced by Nissan. When the Cherry was introduced in 1978, it was called the Nissan Pulsar in Japan but kept the Cherry name for the European market. These small family cars were surprisingly spacious, especially in the boot area. They were pretty good on fuel and the larger engines were not too bad on performance. They were also fairly reliable, and pretty well built cars. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Cherry?

Nissan Cherry History

The Nissan Cherry name was first used in 1982 but was marketed as the Datsun Cherry from 1970.

The first generation (1970-74) and second generation (1974-78) Cherry's were marketed under the Datsun name and became very popular cars across Europe.

In 1978 the third generation (1978-86) was introduced and was the first to use the Nissan Cherry name across Europe and other worldwide markets from 1982 as the Datsun name was phased out. This version was known as the Nissan Pulsar in Japan and it had a much more box like design compared with previous versions. It was available in several variants: hatchback, sedan, coupé and wagon. The Cherry name was discontinued in 1986 to be replaced by the Nissan Sunny.

Fuel Economy

The Nissan Cherry was available with 1.0, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 and 1.5L petrol engines. These engines were quite good economically as they were quite small, but are obviously not as good as modern engines of the same size. Which engine did you have and how did it perform economically? Remember to think about the age, fuel type and engine size when determining fuel economy.


The Nissan Cherry was available in both manual and automatic gearboxes. Which gearbox did you have and how did you rate its performance? We can help you find the gearbox parts you need for your Cherry by visiting the Nissan gearbox section of our website.
