Malaysian-spec Nissan Almera Brochure Leaked, Details Here
The highly anticipated all-new Nissan Almera will be launching very shortly in Malaysia, and today we got sent a brochure that looks like it’s made for ETCM showrooms.
The brochure starts with a photo of the Almera in motion, featuring the all-new Nissan logo in the top left corner, and Nissan Intelligent Mobility in the bottom left corner. We also got news today that the new Nissan logo would debut in Malaysia along with the Nissan Almera, though neither the car nor the showroom are expected to feature this logo just yet. It could just be the brochures to start off with.
The brochure opens with the heart of the new Nissan Almera – the 1.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder motor. It describes some of the engine’s characteristics, such as the Mirror Bore Coating technology that’s derived from the Nissan GT-R’s engine. The Almera with this engine gets 152Nm of torque, one of the highest in its class until the arrival of the City later this year. More importantly, the engine returns 18.4km for every litre of petrol guzzled.
In terms of safety, the Almera gets Intelligent Forward Collision Warning with Intelligent Forward Emergency Braking and Moving Object Detection. A Blind Spot Monitor, 6 airbags and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are all expected, but we’ll see if they’re standard or only on higher trim levels.
The instrument cluster is semi digital, coloured and 7 inches across. Nissans’ flat-bottomed steering wheel will come to the Almera Turbo, along with a sporty, modern interior with an 8″ infotainment system complete with Apple Carplay and 3 USB ports.
The seats are zero gravity inspired with grey accents and the rear bench can be folded down in a 60:40 split.
A quite look at some trim level details shows that 3 specs will be introduced, the VL, VLP and VLT, though we’re not sure what engines will come on which specs as those were not shared with us. The only feature that we see exclusive to the VLT model from this list is cruise control. The VLP and VLT both get a leather steering wheel, Full Colour semi-digital, more infotainment features and an 8″ touchscreen, carbon fibre pattern and chrome lining on the shift knob, a dual tone dashboard with soft gray instrument panel, semi bucket seats in leather, automatic climate control, and 6 speakers. The standard VL spec is a little lacking in these creature comforts, but we’ll have to wait for more on safety and powertrain details.
Colours include Radiant Red, Monarch Orange and Dark Metal Grey as new entries for Nissan in Malaysia, while Brilliant White, Diamond Black, and Tungsten Silver are also available as familiar options.
