The Datsun 1200 car, with Nissan chassis code B110, was made by Nissan Motor Co. It was known as "Datsun Sunny 1200" in Japan, sold from 1970-1973, in North America Model years 1971-1973, in New Zealand until 1974, and in South Africa until 1976.

The Datsun Sunny Truck, with Nissan chassis code B120, was produced from 1971 to 1986. In Japan, it was named "Datsun Sunny Truck" while in Australia, it was called the Datsun 1200 Ute.In South Africa, it was known as the "Bakkie". The B120 model is a type of pickup truck known as a "Coupe Utility" which is based on a car design and has an integral cargo bed. In certain markets, the B120 was badged as 120Y

The second-generation Datsun 1200 B110 (Nissan Sunny), identified as document number 1, was introduced in January 1970 and marketed under the name Datsun 1200 in export markets. This new model, tailored to match its popular competitor, the Toyota Corolla, was slightly larger in all dimensions. Both companies engaged in a game of one-upmanship, which began when Toyota gave the Corolla a 1,100 cc engine, prominently featuring the additional displacement over its Sunny rival. In response, Nissan fitted the second-generation Sunny with a 1,200 cc engine and a somewhat controversial marketing campaign with the slogan "The car next to me looks small."

The Datsun 1200 featured MacPherson strut front suspension with optional disc brakes and an economical 1.2-litre A12-series engine, an enlarged version of the A10 engine utilized in the B10-series Sunny. In addition to the three-door wagon, a five-door station wagon was added to the Sunny range. In April 1970, a GX (Grand Luxury) trim with twin-carburetor engine was added for the Japanese market. In January 1972, the Japanese market saw a minor facelift, including a new hood, grille, and small modifications in equipment fitting. In August 1972, the GX-5 model was introduced in Japan, providing an improvement to the GX with the addition of a direct-fifth (non-overdrive) five-speed manual transmission. The Sunny Coupé 1200GX was an alternative to the Toyota Corolla Levin and Toyota Sprinter Trueno, which were performance package trim levels on the more economical Corolla and Sprinter models. For the 1973 model year, US models were re-specified with energy-absorbing bumpers, fire-resistant interiors, and other government-mandated safety items.

The Datsun 1200 made its racing debut at the Fuji 200-mile race on November 23, 1970, in the plate number 1 class, a class dominated by the Toyota Corolla. Only one works Nissan challenged Toyota, yielding a victory for driver Makoto Suzuki.

The Datsun 1200 was highly regarded for its effectiveness as a rally car in Australia and New Zealand. The Datsun 1600 is generally rated highest among entry-level Datsuns, and the 1200 is a close second. The 1200 also achieved road racing victories, such as winning Class A (for cars costing less than AU$1960) at the 1970 Bathurst 500.

The Nissan Sunny Van Deluxe, identified as document number 1 in Japan, was sold through 1976 in South Africa. A pick-up derivative, featuring a 1400 cc engine, was sold until 2008 when emissions laws forced the end of its production. Over 275,000 were sold to customers who appreciated the rugged rear-wheel-drive design.

In New Zealand, a special edition Datsun 1200 SSS four-door sedan, with twin side-draft Dell'Orto 40 mm carburetors, a different camshaft, and 5-slot aluminum wheels, underwent assembly and marketing locally. It featured cosmetic changes both in the exterior and interior, and approximately 800 units were produced. The 1200 was popular in New Zealand, where it was contract-assembled at two factories (sedans at Campbell Industries in Thames, and three-door wagons at Motor Holdings, Waitara). A small number of Deluxe sedans and a greater number of coupes were imported from Japan. The car remained in NZ production until 1974, as Nissan NZ was uncertain about how the public would react to the oddly styled 120Y successor.
