New Nissan Almera Turbo Set to Win Hearts with Its Good Looks
The previous generation Nissan Almera received a lot of flak from all quarters for its horrible design but after getting up close with the successor last week, I can confidently say that it will not suffer the same fate.
I mean, just look at it. The comprehensive makeover has given the Almera (or the Almera Turbo, as it is officially known here) a more elegant look that will certainly give its competitors a run for their money.
The bulbous shape is no more, replaced by a sharper looking body that was sculpted based on Nissan’s ‘Emotional Geometry’ design language, which also includes the V-motion grille, boomerang-shaped LED headlights and the low-profile ‘floating’ roof.
Combined with the extensive technical improvements and enticing spec, which is the highest in ASEAN, Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) may have a winner on their hands here.
Read more about it in the press release below:
Since the launch of the All-New Nissan Almera Turbo in Thailand last year, much had been said about the breakthrough new design that is refreshing and impressive at first sight.
The All-New Nissan Almera Turbo incorporates a sleek, comfortable and spacious design that leaves a lasting first impression that drivers can be proud of, along with smart technologies that meet the needs of Nissan’s valued customers, especially millennials and young families.
Nissan designers have put in a lot of effort in redesigning the All-New Nissan Almera Turbo with the aim to redefine the segment. Combining a new dramatic and expressive exterior, and a fresh new interior with premium features and quality, everything about the All-New Almera Turbo design is about attractive proportions delivering a commanding stance.
The All-New Nissan Almera Turbo was reimagined under Nissan’s “Emotional Geometry” design language. Every corner, crease and curve of the All-New Almera Turbo worked together to create something spectacular. From the signature V-motion front grille and boomerang-shaped LED headlamps that flows across the front end to a sleek, low profile floating roof and signature rear LED tail-lamps that created an aerodynamic and cutting-edge presence, the All-New Almera Turbo is described as an energetic, provocative and confident sedan.
“The All-New Nissan Almera Turbo is love at first sight. This love grows even more once you appreciate the high quality premium interior as well as rich specifications and tech features loaded into the All-New Almera Turbo. We are confident that Malaysians will find the All-New Almera Turbo is one of the most attractively styled B-sedans in Malaysia,” said Mr Christopher Tan, Sales and Marketing Director, ETCM.
The new exterior design also features longer, wider and lower dimensions while retaining the roomy interior space that Almera has always been appreciated for.Overall, it is 70mm longer, 45mm wider and 40mm lower compared to the first generation Almera, and made the All-New Nissan Almera Turbo look like the size of a C-sedan but sportier. Even the wheelbase has been lengthened by 20mm.
Inside the All-New Nissan Almera Turbo, it features the latest ‘Gliding Wing’ instrument panel that expands the feel of space through use of a light and sleek ‘wingspan’. The effect of the design’s spatial symmetry is an enhanced sense of togetherness. The horizontal architecture, open spaces and use of harmonious materials and colours add a fresh, a-class-above quality to the entire cabin.
Additionally, the sporty flat bottom steering wheel,soft padded double stitching leather wrap dashboard, surrounded by touches of chrome, piano black and carbon-fibre pattern textures contributed to the premium interior ambient. Coupled with Zero Gravity inspired semi bucket front seats with grey accent that supports the lumbar, mid back and shoulder region, helps to reduce fatigue while travelling on longer journeys.
The generous trunk space of 482L (VDA) is able to fit in 4 golf bags and now comes with a lower and wider opening for easier access. Especially for the Malaysia market, the All-New Nissan Almera Turbo offers as standard foldable 60:40 split back seats in case you need more cargo space or to carry extra-long items.
Colours for the All-New Nissan Almera Turbo have been carefully considered for an extraordinary appeal. Six dynamic colours, 3 all-new – the Radiant Red, Monarch Orange and Dark Metal Grey, while the ever popular Brilliant White, Diamond Black and Tungsten Silver are also available.
