Almera Pros & Cons

Things We Like in 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.

Things We Dont Like in 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.

 

Recent Updates of Almera

While the fourth-gen Nissan Almera has already landed in Thailand, it is still awaited in Malaysia. The current iteration available in the country made its debut in 2018 with a few changes including new fascia, more chrome parts, and a spruced-up interior. It is available in two variants - E AT and VL AT with a starting price of RM 69,888. Both the trims are powered by a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine delivering 102 PS of power. In its segment, Nissan Almera goes up squarely against Honda City, Kia Rio sedan, Proton Persona, and Toyota Vios.

Almera Overview

The Nissan Almera is the manufacturer’s mainstay car in most countries. While here in Malaysia, its called the Almera, in other regions it’s also called the Sunny. It is based on the Micra/March hatchback. This 2018 Nissan Almera has had few changes from the outgoing car vis-a-vis the new face, more chrome parts, and a spruced-up interior. There are four trims on offer - the Almera E MT, Almera E AT, Almera VL AT and the Almera Nismo. Competition includes the ever dependable Honda City, Kio Rio sedan, Toyota Vios, Proton Persona as well as the Volkswagen Vento.

Nissan Almera Interior & Features

The centre console of the Nissan Almera is done in a piano black finish. Front and rear power windows are standard across the range and so is the 4-speaker music system that supports AUX and USB inputs. There are multiple cubby holes around the cabin and while we believe beige colour would have amplified the amount of space this 5-seater has, it is sadly not offered. Nissan also doesn’t offer rear AC vents on the Almera, something which is available in the models sold outside Malaysia. This is a big miss in our books since the back seat comfort of the Almera rivals that of cars above its segment. The automatic climate control offered in the VL AT trim cools the cabin real quick. We liked the high-quality cabin of the Nissan Almera. Everything out there seems well put together and durable too. The boot space is good enough for three airport suitcases. Its volume is 490-litre and the rear seats don't fold. On the top-spec VL AT, Nissan offers keyless entry, push-button start and steering mounted audio controls.

Almera Exterior

The new Nissan Almera is still based on the versatile V platform. The Nissan Almera is 4,432mm long, 1,695mm wide and 1,500mm tall. The ground clearance is 160mm. Salient design elements that are different from the outgoing model include the new chrome grille, LED DRLs, the new alloys and the slightly altered tail section. Speaking of alloys, Nissan retains the 185 section 15-inch wheels with all the trims except for the Nismo. For this performance-oriented trim, Nissan has given glossy 16-inch alloys with slightly fatter section rubber. In fact for the Nismo trim, one can opt for a dual tone colour, louder exhaust, fancy body kit and more.

Nissan Almera Ride & Handling

The Nissan Almera rides on independent McPherson struts front and back. The suspension set up is on the softer side and this shows the way the Almera glides over bumps. The cabin is relatively noise-free, however, at high speeds the engine as well as road noise does tend to seep in. While the ride quality of the car is commendable, the handling is a bit on the relaxed side. That the car has been set up for comfort is quite evident in the way it turns around corners. The steering is light but doesn’t way up significantly when the speeds rise. Ventilated discs at the front and drums at the rear constitute the brakes. They have ample bite and are progressive in nature.

Almera Engine & Fuel Consumption

Nissan offers a lone 1.5-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine with the Almera. This naturally aspirated motor makes 102 PS of power and 139 Nm of torque. It can be optioned with either a 5-speed manual or a conventional 4-speed automatic. Nissan claims a fuel efficiency of 14.9 kmpl from this engine and they aren’t far off the mark. In our combined economy tests, the Nissan Almera returned close to 14 kmpl. The gearshifts on the manual trim feel a tad rubbery in execution while the clutch itself is light in operation. The automatic transmission in the meanwhile feels old school and along with the not so rev-happy nature of the petrol motor, makes for a relaxed commuter. In our top speed runs, the Nissan Almera maxed out at 168 kmph.


Nissan Almera Braking & Safety

Nissan’s globally acclaimed V platform forms the basis of the Almera. This configuration has proven its mettle before with good crash safety ratings. The new Nissan Almera gets a four-star rating. That being said, Nissan offers only a driver airbag in the E trims while the VL gets a passenger airbag too. ABS along with EBD is standard across the range. Child ISOFIX mounting points too are standard. This along with child lock constitute the safety features of the new Nissan Almera.

    If you are looking for a Sedan car from the Nissan group this is the only one then. The car is into existence for quite a long time. Thus when it comes to its designs and interiors there are not any modification. You can call this car somewhat a dated car that way. The car is not well equipped with Read More
