Upper middle class: Nissan Almera vs. Toyota Vios

Upper middle class: Nissan Almera vs. Toyota Vios

We now take a look at two sedans that are priced relatively a little higher up the totem pole of compact sedans. They have roughly the same dimensions, and we've chosen the range-topping variants in both cases for a side-by-side spec comparo.

Nissan touts the Nissan Almera as having ample cargo space, a robust air-conditioning system, and expansive cabin.

The stylish exterior design of the Almera is well-emphasized with a  sleek rear spoiler, boomerang headlamps, and chrome grille accents — all of which make this sedan stand out on the road. 

You can organize and load your gear and essential items with the Almera’s multi-purpose storage areas. It also has an expansive headroom and legroom as well as an enhanced, trendy interior that offers personalized comfort. 

Ultimate confidence is prioritized thanks to the Nissan Safety Shield, which is an extensive strategy towards safety that serves as a guide for the development and engineering of each Nissan vehicle being produced in the market.

Meanwhile, the popular Toyota Vios has been the country's leading  sedan for good reason. It exhibits the ideal balance of features and power and its many variants cut across multiple price points to suit most budgets. It also takes pride in an upgraded and unique styling, cutting-edge performance, seamless acceleration, class-leading fuel efficiency, optimum convenience, and safety.
