180SX vs. S13: The Difference
In the annals of motoring history, there have been few debates as passionate, or as long-lived as the furore surrounding the similarities and differences between two of Nissan’s best selling models, the 180 SX, and the Silva S13.
This article will attempt to resolve some of the issues; however, the entire debate revolves around fixed vs. retractable headlights on the one hand, and one engine variant that was not offered on both models on the other, and while this article does not claim to be last word on the subject, the information presented here should be sufficient to convince die-hard fans of both models that they favor cars that are to all intents and purposes, identical.
The Facts Of The Matter.
Even though the Silva S13 appeared in convertible form for a short while, the conversion was not a success due the excessive amounts of body flex that affected handling in the worst possible way. For this reason, the fact that a convertible existed cannot go against the fact that for the exception of different headlights and one engine that was not offered on both models, the two cars were essentially identical, as can be seen from the accompanying table all information in this table was gleaned from official sources, which means that at least this debate can be put to rest once and for all.
