Our new car to buy: the All New Nissan Almera Turbo! New from RM83,888, with a Turbo engine, good looks, and good equipment! If you’re looking for a car with a budget of RM80,000 – RM90,000 and want a new car that’s good value, well equipped, good performance and fuel-efficient, what are your options? The answer is the Nissan Almera Turbo, priced from RM83,888 new, with good looks and a Turbo engine!
The Almera is powered by a 1.0L Turbo three-cylinder turbocharged engine with CVT transmission, 99hp, and 152Nm of torque. The Turbo’s low-torque, high-revving nature means that the peak torque is earlier, making it more agile and easier to follow in urban driving. It is worth mentioning the fuel consumption, which is officially 18.4KM/L, is very fuel efficient~.
The front end has sharp LED headlights, a V-Motion chrome tank guard, and a sporty bumper design. At the rear, there are blacked-out LED taillights, a rear wing, a rear spoiler, and more.
As for the interior, the Almera Turbo has 7″ semi-digital instruments, a multi-function steering wheel, an 8″ entertainment touch screen console (supports Apple Carplay, not Android Auto), leather seats, a digital air conditioning control panel, etc. I have test-driven it before, and the quality of the interior is really good, and the overall practicality is also very good. However, the boot space of the Almera is not as good as that of the City and Vios, at 482L (the Vios and City have a boot of over 500L).
The Almera Turbo also has good safety features. In addition to the standard six airbags and basic safety equipment, it also has Nissan Intelligent Mobility and Safety Shield 360 advanced active safety features, including 360° panoramic view, blind spot detection, reverse blind spot warning, AEB Automatic Emergency Braking, Cruise Control and more.
Finally, although the Nissan Almera Turbo is priced higher than the Toyota Vios and Honda City, I have to say that the Almera is still worth considering, after all, it is good-looking, well equipped, has enough power for the 1.0L Turbo engine and gets excellent fuel consumption. Anyway, do you like it? Will you buy it? Let’s talk in the comments section.
