Nissan Almera: Your Partner For All Of Your New Beginnings


Owning a car is no longer a luxury. It is a necessity. Your new job in the BPO industry has the non-traditional work schedule. Commuting to and from work in the wee hours can be stressful and unsafe. Starting a family means facing new but exciting challenges. Weekly grocery trips and family bonding moments are more convenient if you have your own vehicle. 

Nissan Philippines wants to be a part of your new beginnings. Last November 16, Nissan Philippines Inc. (NPI) officially launched the newest model in their subcompact sedan line-up, the new Nissan Almera. It was held at Nissan's Showroom in Chino Roces and was attended by valued Nissan Customers, partners and friends from the media and blogging community.  A refreshed take on the previous model, the new Nissan Almera offers an upgraded design and features, making it a vehicle for all new beginnings.

"We at Nissan Philippines are proud to introduce the new Nissan Almera as the perfect partner for all new beginnings.", said Mr. Antonio Zara, Nissan Philippines President and Managing Director. "Combining the best of fuel efficiency with generous cabin and trunk space that leads other cars in its class, the new Nissan Almera is the ideal car that will be with you and your loved ones through many of life's important milestones."


The new Nissan Almera brings an updated look from the previous version. Elegant lines and premium finishes on the exterior create an eye-catching presence on the road. A redesigned front bumper with boomerang-inspired headlamps, a bigger and bolder front grille, and front chromed accents all present a striking appearance. At the back, a remodeled rear bumper is complemented with black diffuser cladding and chromed trunk garnish. A large lip spoiler and newly-designed 12-spoke alloy wheels also add to the sportiness of the vehicle's design.

Inside, the refreshed Nissan Almera's cabin features a new center cluster layout with a piano black finish. Adding to the premium interior design are the new multi-information display, three-spoke steering wheel, and high quality leather seats in the top range variant. The new Nissan Almera's unmatched interior spaciousness also contribute to its status as one of the most comfortable vehicle in its class.

Other features that contribute to a comfortable driving and riding experience are cup and bottle holders at the center console and door sidings, a rear cabin comfort fan that provides dual ventilation and speed control for better cabin air circulation, iPod connectivity, push-button start and remote keyless system. An Anti-Lock Braking System, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, Brake Assist and Dual Front Airbags also provide added security.

The new Nissan Almera features upgraded, high quality parts and technology, which lengthens the intervals between periodic maintenance service (PMS). In addition, the cost of spare parts for the new Nissan Almera are also lower than before. This keeps maintenance costs down at 30% lower than other cars of its class.


The new Nissan Almera now offers two different power trains to suit the customers' requirements. The 1.5L VL engine features automatic transmission with an inline 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve engine with a power of 99ps at 6,000 and a torque of 134NM at 4,000 rpm. 

The 1.2L manual transmission, on the other hand, features a DOHC CVT engine, with a power of 79ps at 6,000 rpm and torque of 106NM at 4,400 rpm, ensuring maximum fuel efficiency without compromising driving pleasure. Suspension for the vehicle is provided by MacPherson strut at the front and a rigid axle and torsion beam at the rear.
