Way back in 2001, Nissan South Africa introduced us to the C-Segment Almera model. It was available in both Hatchback and Sedan versions, unfortunately they were discontinued 2006.
Luckily however, the Nissan Almera is back in South African showrooms, but this time as a low cost B-segment model. The Almera is now powered by a 1498cc petrol engine that allows for a decent 73kW at 6,000rpm and 134Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. It is also available in both a 5-speed manual and 4-speed Automatic version.
The Almera Gives You More Than You Expect!
The new Almera boasts class-leading rear legroom and plenty of safety and convenience features that come as a surprise in a car of this price.
These features include:
- ABS with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution)
- Driver & passenger airbags
- Remote central locking
- Full colour coding
- Chrome exterior detailing
- 15-inch alloy wheels
- Electric door mirrors
- Manual air conditioning
- A radio/CD/MP3 audio system with aux input port
- Steering wheel audio controls
- Height-adjustable driver’s seat
- Tilt adjustment for the steering wheel,
- Remote central locking with speed-sensitive auto-locking doors
- Trip computer
We think that this is a VERY impressive amount of features for a car that is priced at:
ALMERA 1.5 Acenta Manual R165,000* (incl. VAT)
ALMERA 1.5 Acenta Automatic R175,500* (incl. VAT)
*These prices were correct at the time this post was written. Prices may fluctuate over time.
