The Cherry debuted as Nissan's first FF car in October 1970, with the same A10 and A12 engines as those in the Sunny. In November of the following year, a coupe was added to the lineup. The top-tier "X-1" model was powered by the SU twin-carb A12 (80ps) engine and attracted many younger drivers. In the 1972 Fuji GC Series Minor Touring class, it performed well alongside the Sunny, which won that year's title.
