From The Experts

Nissan Almera

The Nissan Almera might belong to the most entry-level price point of compact sedans. However, given its nice length and wheelbase dimensions, the Almera has a good road presence with longer footprints on the surface. Thanks to this road presence, the Nissan Almera has got the aura of a ‘big car’ which a person generally upgrading from a compact hatchback to a sedan demands from his new bigger car.

Thanks to a much longer wheelbase, the Nissan Almera offers best in class rear seat experience, which some of the sedans from one category could also not provide. With great legroom and knee room and good under-thigh support, the rear passengers are being offered good comfort levels in the Almera.

With a bigger focus on comfort for the passengers, the Nissan Almera also is praiseworthy for the plush ride quality it offers. The suspension is on a softer side, which works wonders while driving over broken sections of the tarmac.

Proton Persona

For an entry-level sedan, the Proton Persona looks quite smart with a flowing design which looks very youthful. The curvy layout of headlamps, as well as tail lamps, do make the Proton Persona feel a car from the current generation, which is something which other entry-level sedans do lack due to cost-cutting. 

Another praiseworthy aspect for an entry-level sedan like the Proton Persona is the amount of safety features it is packed with. The Proton Persona is equipped with all the bells and whistles in this arena, like six airbags, ABS with EBD, traction control, vehicle stability control, and front and rear parking sensors, which make the car feel safe and secure.

Nissan Almera

While the Nissan Almera has the stance and dimensions of a big sedan, the interior cabin design, fit and finish are something which dulls out the overall experience. The dashboard feels low rent with a dated design, while at the same time, the choice of materials also feel as if they are built to cost.

Despite being positioned as a sedan which offers a suitable upgrade from a compact hatchback, the Nissan Almera lacks a number of premium features which nowadays are present in all of their competitors. Features like LEDs and a modern touch screen infotainment system are some things which are considered a necessity in a sedan, and the Nissan Almera lacks a number of them.

The 1.5-litre petrol engine in the Nissan Almera lacks the punch and feels dull when revved hard. The engine gets its job done, but the driving enthusiasts might not be impressed with its boring power delivery.

 

Proton Persona

While the exterior design of the Proton Persona feels youthful, the in-cabin experience is not all that premium, thanks to a very sober-looking cabin design as well as pared-down build quality. Also, there are a number of crucial features which have been put up in their very basic forms, like the headlamps which miss out on LEDs or projectors or lack of a modern automatic climate control system.

The headlamps have a very nice design, however, the visibility of the throw from them during dark conditions is not too good as compared to that of other cars in this category.
