In the title compound, C13H13N3, the cyano groups at the 2- and 5-positions are eclipsed with each other. The phenyl ring is disordered over two sets of sites, with refined occupancies of 0.520 (5) and 0.480 (5). The angles between the mean plane of the pyrrolidine ring and the two cyano groups are 71.7 (9) and 75.0 (12)°.
