The B13 was introduced in 1990 and retained many of the B12's ideas but in a more rounded, up-to-date body. It was particularly successful in the United States where the sports model two-door Sentra SE-R was marketed by Nissan of America. The car is still being made in Mexico, where is it sold as the Tsuru, for domestic and export markets (in Chile and Peru as Nissan V16), and is quite popular among cab drivers for its reliability and low maintenance costs. Meanwhile for Taiwan market, it is known as the Nissan 331.

The sedan came standard with the fuel injected 110 hp 1.6 L GA16DE engine. It came in the base model, E, XE, GXE, SE, And Limited Edition. The GXE and Limited Edition came with power package such as power windows/locks/mirrors while the XE, SE, SE-R came with standard or optional sunroof and alloy wheels. Four door models came with front motorized shoulder seatbelts.

While In the Philippines The B13 was released in jx, lec, EX Saloon, Super Saloon and SE Saloon variants. The Super Saloon had all power features. The SE-Saloon came as a Limited edition equipped with four wheel disc brakes and ABS. Both SE and Super Saloon come standard with the GA16DE

The B13 SuperSaloon and SE Saloon came with the GA16DE fuel injected engine (top of the line engine for the Philippine market) which is comparable to the U.S Spec B13 SE Limited with loaded options. These models are not equipped with emissions equipment - catalytic converters and 02 Sensors as well as EGR
The LEC version comes with the standard GA13 Carburated engine as well as the LEC Ps (Power Steering model) and the JX comes with the GA14 carburated engine
The B13 Sunny was available with engines ranging from the underwhelming carbie 1.3L GA13DS (left) to the 1.8L SR18DE (right), a sister engine to the SR20. The SR18DE differs from the SR20DE in that it has a narrower bore (82.5mm versus 86mm) and higher compression.
All Japanese Sunny sedans were four-doors, but there were a number of exterior trim configurations not available in America. Japan's hottest B13 Sunny was the 1800 GT-S saloon, with four-wheel disk brakes, limited-slip differential (likely the same as the VLSD B13 SE-R unit), stiffer suspension, and sport interior. The GT-S is as uncommon as SE-R, but it was obviously the model to have. It's SR18DE put out 138hp at 6400rpm and 123ft-lb of torque at 4800rpm, numbers not far off the USDM SR20DE.
The white-on-black cloth of this Sunny GT-S is much sportier than you'll find in a North American Sentra four-door. What's cool is three-spoke steering wheel, black cloth door inserts, and NX2000 seats.
Subtle side skirts found on earlier Sunnys. They might be a nice touch for a 1991-1992 SE-R to match the silver-grey front lip of the front .During the 1992-1993 Sunny mid-life update, some models received a very classy front bumper with cues similar to the Infiniti I30 sedan. Cars with this front bumper also carry very slick side skirts.
Since then B13 Sunny front bumpers, headlights, grilles, and side skirts have become a popular swap for American Sentra drivers.
In Mexico, the Nissan Tsuru is still the best selling car in its category as it's much bigger and cheaper in maintenance than its direct competitors like Volkswagen Pointer and the Chevrolet Chevy C2. The 2007 model is available in 2 trims: the GS 1 and GS 2. Both trims use a 1.6 liter 16-valve (ga16dne) engine producing 105 hp (78 kW) and can be equipped with an automatic gear-box and air-conditioning. A 2007 Nissan Tsuru GS1 costs approximately USD 9,500.

In Malaysia, known as Nissan Sentra Super Saloon with GA16DE fitted engine with two version (1st models & last models), it is widely used as a taxi in Genting Highlands, due to its engine durability and fuel efficiency in such conditions.

There are two versions of Nissan Sunny, the GTS generation 1 and the GTS generation 2. The GTS generation 1 consists of the glass headlights, generation 1 front bumper (with 2 projector lamps), side skirts, rear chin, sunny grille and the rear garnish. The GTS generation 2 consists of the plastic headlights, generation 2 front bumper (with 4 fog lamps), side skirts, rear bumper, sentra grille and the rear garnish. There are some differences in other parts like the rear garnish and the side skirts.

Nissan V16
Is for in Chile is the same basic car only with minor cosmetic changes and mechanical downgrades to make it cheaper, such as non-power steering, downgraded interior trim, a downgraded braking system, and a mechanical clutch instead of a hydraulic one. More recent models have received a Renault-built hydraulic clutch. Its affordable price make it popular among local taxi drivers in Mexico, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.Many units of the Nissan V16 in Chile are said to have lasted at least 500.000 or up to 700.000km under worst condition without opening the engine block for adjustments.

Nissan Sentra MX
Nissan Sentra SE-R
Its the first to offer Nissan's famous and then-new SR20DE engine in the sporty two-door SE-R model

The Y10 wagon (and pickup):
In Latin America and southeast Asia, there was the wagon built in Mexico for export that seems to share a lot of DNA with the B13 and its N14 cousins. Known as the Y10 platform, it was called the Tsubame in the Americas and the Wingroad or AD Wagon elsewhere. A pickup version of the Y10, called the AD Resort, was sold in the Phillipines.
The Nissan Sunny California wagon was discontinued and replaced with the Nissan Wingroad, a small family wagon based on the Nissan Sunny AD commercial delivery van.
