The Almera Turbo Might Change How You See Nissan
Nissan is one of those brands that once enjoyed unbeatable sales numbers, but lost the lead for a number of reasons. But things are about to change in a big way for the company and in Malaysia that starts with an all-new Almera. This is your entry into the Nissan brand, so Edaran Tan Chong Motors have really gone all out to give you a taste of the new Nissan.
In fact, the Malaysian-spec Nissan Almera is one of the best equipped in the region. Comparing top variants, our Almera comes with LED daytime running lights, 16” alloy wheels, leather combination seats, and cruise control, all missing on the Thai full-spec model. What’s more, the Almera in Malaysia also gets Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Forward Emergency Brakes, as well as 60:40 split folding rear seats as standard, features that are either missing or reserved on higher grade models in Thailand.
It also comes with the same punchy 1-litre turbo engine as the Thai model – a first for any Japanese B-segment sedan in Malaysia. If you’d like to check out the new Almera, now’s the best time. From 11-13 December, the Nissan Test Drive Carnival will be held nationwide.
Get it while the Sales Tax Free Pricing still applies, but even if you end up not buying an Almera at the end of your test drive, you’re automatically entered into winning one of 5 iPhone SE (128GB) models.

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 intelligent and advanced drive assist technologies that meet the needs of Nissan’s valued customers, especially millennials and young families.
The important area where the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo stands out is its Nissan Intelligent Mobility and Safety Shield 360 technologies that provide front, side and rear safety monitoring and intervention. This exciting technology is a key component of Nissan’s vision of how vehicles are driven, powered and integrated into society.
Standard on all three Nissan Almera Turbo variants are the Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (IFCW) and Intelligent Forward Emergency Braking (IFEB) systems. The Intelligent Forward Collision Warning monitors vehicle distance and speed between 5km/h to 80km/h, and alerts driver when the vehicle is too close to a vehicle ahead or a risk from frontal collision by flashing a warning with audible alert on the 7-inch Advance Drive Assist Display (ADAD). If the driver does not take any action, theIntelligent Forward Emergency Braking system will indicate an emergency stop sign and automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a frontal collision or lessen the severity of an impact. The vehicle will remain at a standstill for approximately 2 seconds before the brakes are released.
“The all-new Nissan Almera Turbo takes the popular B-sedan to a new level of refinement and enhancements not usually found in this segment. With the theme ‘Challenge All Beliefs’, the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo is not the Almera everyone knew before. It is completely redesigned to be energetic, provocative and engaging with its dynamic styling, confidence-inspiring performance and innovative technologies, that sets to challenge customers’ beliefs on what modern sedans should be,” said Christopher Tan, Sales and Marketing Director of Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd.
Other safety technologies available on the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo are the Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) systems. At a driving speed approximately 32km/h and above, the Blind Spot Warning system helps keep an eye on blind spot areas at approximately 3 meters x 3 meters via radar sensors at the rear bumper, and alerts the driver of other vehicles in adjacent lanes when changing lanes. If the radar sensors detect a vehicle in the detection zone or blind spot area when the turn signal is activated, the system will chime twice and warning indicators on the ADAD and the side mirror surface will illuminate.
Additionally, the Rear Cross Traffic Alert system operates while the vehicle is reversing at speed less than 8km/h. The same rear radar sensors help to detect an approaching vehicle below 30km/h driving speed and warn the driver with an audible alert and indicator on the side mirror surface where the vehicle is approaching from.
The highly appreciated Intelligent Around View Monitor (IAVM) with Intelligent Moving Object Detection(IMOD) system that is featured on the Nissan X-Trail, Serena S-Hybrid and Navara, is now available on the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo too. Perfect during parking and manoeuvring tight spots, the Intelligent Around View Monitor system uses 4 cameras that provide a virtual 360° bird’s-eye view of the vehicle, while the Intelligent Moving Object Detection helps to detect and alert the driver of moving objects surrounding the vehicle.
The all-new Nissan Almera Turbo is also packed with other various safety technologies that are always looking out for you by monitoring, responding and protecting you and your passengers, including:• Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control (TC)• Hill Start Assist (HSA)• Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Brake Assist (BA)• Electronic Braking Distribution (EBD)• 6 SRS Airbags(available on VLP and VLT variants only)• ISOFIX with Top Tether (x2) Child Seat Restraint system
A 5-year unlimited mileage vehicle warranty comes standard on all Nissan Almera Turbo variants, along with free 5 times alternating maintenance service (parts and labour included) within 5 years.
