Before the Nissan Stanza, there was the Nissan Violet, a sister car to the Nissan Sunny, which sold outside Japan under Nissan's Datsun marque as the Datsun 140J/160J — except in the United States where it was the Datsun 710. This model was built as a 2-door saloon, 2-door coupé, 4-door fastback, 4-door notchback, estate, and van. The Violet was placed above the Nissan Sunny but just slightly below the Nissan Bluebird. Introducing the Violet allowed Nissan to moderately increase the dimensions of the older Nissan Bluebird.
