The Sunny B10
A funny story about the "Sport" designation on Sunny cars. This is according to Syed, a Datsun Sunny owner from Pakistan. Back in the late 60's, Toyota launched the Corolla in direct competition with the Sunny series. The Corolla had a slightly larger engine than the Sunny, and Toyota used that as a selling point in an effort to outsell the 1000cc Sunny. What drivers who drove both cars soon found out was that the Sunny was more agile and peppy than the Corolla, even with the displacement disadvantage. Siezing on this, Nissan started putting the "Sport" designation on all the Sunny models as a way of saying the "Sunny is sportier than the Corolla".
