Nissan recently launched the all-new Almera in the country, offering first-in-class features that sets it apart from the competitive passenger car segment.
Introduced in a live virtual event broadcasted from the World Trade Center in Pasay City, the vehicle now has a 1.0L turbo engine, Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) features and new bolder design elements compared to the previous model.
For the first time in the passenger car segment, the subcompact sedan comes with NIM features that provide monitoring and intervention technology, giving car owners added driving confidence and safety.
These features include intelligent forward collision warning, intelligent forward emergency braking, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, as well as the intelligent around view monitor with moving object detection.
The all-new Almera is now powered with a lighter 1.0-liter turbo engine which delivers greater power and better fuel efficiency, available in four variants with automatic and manual transmission options.
The segment-first turbo engine has a maximum power output of 98hp, a class leading 152 N-m of torque, and a fuel efficiency of 23.3 kilometers per liter , giving better acceleration and better power output than the previous model.
Unmatched style and comfort
It incorporates a sleek, comfortable and spacious design that leaves a lasting first impression on first-time car owners and millennial families alike.
The new design features lower, wider and longer exterior dimensions using Nissan’s Emotional Geometry design language, while retaining the Almera’s roomy interior space. Key elements of the “Emotional Geometry” design language in the vehicle include the V-motion grille, boomerang-shaped LED headlamps and tail lamps, LED signature daytime running lamps, kick-up C-pillars and a floating roof.
Its interior has also been totally redesigned to accommodate a new seven-inch TFT Meter with integrated drive-assist display, infotainment screen, black leather interiors with contrast stitching, as well as a new D-shaped steering wheel with hands-free, meter, and voice recognition controls. The stylish passenger cabin features high-quality design and exemplary craftsmanship with head and legroom to spare, retaining its reputation for best-in-class roominess.
The infotainment system provides convenience and seamless connectivity with an eight-inch advanced touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, bringing infotainment, navigation, safety, security and more under a single platform, with connection via smartphone.
“The all-new Almera is the smart and stylish sedan that first time owners, growing families and young professionals can trust,” Nissan Philippines president and managing director, Atsushi Najima said.
“As part of Nissan’s transformation plan in the Philippines, we are offering a unique and exciting challenger in the competitive passenger car segment,” he added.
The all-new sedan starts at P 728,000 and will be available in six stunning colors: Cayenne Red, Gun Metallic, Galaxy Black, Premium Corona Orange, Brilliant Silver and Pearl White.
It also comes with a vehicle warranty of five years or 150,000 kilometers, whichever comes first for the VE and VL variants. Similar to the Navara and Terra, its warranty is the first in its segment, providing customers a worry-free ownership experience.
