Performance (Source: Car and Driver, March 1987)
These tests were performed on a 1987 model 200SX SE V6
Acceleration                                Seconds
Zero to 30 mph.................................................2.7
                 40 mph.................................................4.2
                 50 mph.................................................6.2
                 60 mph.................................................8.6
                 70 mph................................................11.6
                 80 mph................................................15.1
                 90 mph................................................20.2
              100 mph................................................26.1
              110 mph................................................35.0
 
Standing 1/4 Mile:.......................16.5 sec. @ 84 mph
Top Speed:.............................................................122 mph

Note:  C & D is wrong here.  The SE will go faster than 122.  The consensus on 200SX SE top speed is around 130-135 mph.  Due to the speedometer ending at 125, speedometer error, and differences between individual cars, this number is hard to nail down.

Braking, 70-0 mph at impending lockup..............176 ft.
Skidpad, 300 ft. dia.........................................................0.79 g
 
Fuel Economy, EPA City/Hwy...................................................................19/26 mpg  
My personally experienced avg. economy in mixed driving:......24-25 mpg
Record highway economy for a single tank:..........................................30.1 mpg 
 
Here are the comments from Consumer Reports Annual Auto Issue, April 1988:
Nissan 200SX
2-door: XE, $12,349
2-door hatchback: SE, $12,599
    SE, $15,399
This model is made in Japan.
The 200SX has a 2-liter 4 in the XE models; the SE model has the powerful 3-liter V6 used in the 300ZX.  When last tested, in 1985, the 200SX was a good, representative sporty car.  Predicted reliability: much better than average.
