Almera Pros & Cons

Things We Like in Almera

The Nissan Almera has been positioned along with the likes of smaller sedans and premium hatchbacks in terms of price, but despite this, the Almera feels long and big. The best-in-class length and wheelbase do give the Nissan Almera a much premium stance for its price.

Apart from imparting a great road presence, the best-in-class length and wheelbase also impart incredible rear-seat space. The knee room and legroom of the back seat of the Nissan Almera feel even better than some of the cars from one and two segments above.

Things We Dont Like in Almera

The big dimensions do give the Nissan Almera a big car feel on the outside as well as inside in terms of space. However, the cabin layout feels boring and dated. The instrument console and center console feels outdated, while at the same time, the grey color scheme for interiors makes the cabin feel a bit dull.

The 1.5-liter petrol engine which powers the Nissan Almera sound powerful on paper, however, the engine feels lethargic and lazy while on the move. Also, the engine isn’t too good on the front of fuel efficiency, which might be a turn off for those family-oriented buyers who are looking for an economic car to upgrade from an entry-level hatchback.

At a time when even entry-level hatchbacks are stuffed with premium and contemporary features, the absence of features like a modern touch screen infotainment system and LED elements in headlights and tail lamps to make it feel simple for a car of its price.

Recent Updates of Almera

While the Philippines is still being offered with the old and bald Almera, Nissan has launched the all-new 2020 Almera in Thailand following the sedan introduction in the US. And, since the Thai launch is done & dusted, it shouldn’t be long before we see the radically revamped Almera in the Philippines. The updated sedan features Nissan’s V-Motion grille, boomerang-shaped LED headlights, 15-inch alloys, and others on the outside. The interior, on the other hand, gets a 7-inch digital multi-information display, 8-inch touchscreen audio system with Apple CarPlay and six-speakers, and a revisited V-shaped “Gliding Wing” dashboard. A 1.0-litre three-cylinder DOHC turbocharged comes mated to an  Xtronic Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) and makes 100 hp & 152 Nm.

Overview

It has now been quite some time since Nissan is selling the Almera in the Philippines. With newer and better competitors having entered the automobile market, it's easy to say that the Nissan Almera has seen its better days. However, even though the Japanese sedan doesn't look like a new car that belongs to 2020, it still has got a handful of goodies up its sleeves to rack up some sales before Nissan Philippines decides to bring in the updated model in the country.

In the Philippines, the currently offered Nissan Almera takes on the likes of the Toyota Vios, Volkswagen Santana, GAC GA4, Hyundai Accent, Mitsubishi Mirage G4, Honda Brio Amaze, and others. The Japanese sedan is available in four different variants, namely 1.2 MT, 1.5 E MT, 1.5 E AT, and 1.5 VL AT. As far as the price is concerned, the Nissan Almera gets a price tag that ranges from Php 657,000 for the 1.2L MT model to Php 933,000 for the range-topping 1.5L VL AT trim.

Interior & Features

In simplest of terms, the Nissan Almera looks old. It just does, both inside and outside. The cabin feels outdated and doesn't offer many of the modern-day & trending creature comforts & other technologies. For starters, the cabin flaunts a light-colored theme with the color beige covering a larger part of the interior. The color beige then gets the support of various black and grey trims. While the 1.2 MT, 1.5 E MT, and the 1.5 E AT models get fabric upholstery, the 1.5 VL AT comes boasting leather upholstery. Seat height adjustment on the driver's side is also offered on the top-of-the-line model only.

Thanks to a recent update, the Nissan Almera now features a 6.75-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The unit is, however, offered from the 1.5 E MT model only. Moving on, some of the major features and tech inside the sedan incorporate front & rear power windows, keyless entry with push-button start/stop, automatic climate control with rear vents, and others. As for space inside the Nissan Almera, five adults can manage inside the sedan easily without much trouble. The 2600 mm wheelbase helps the sedan in offering a good amount of legroom. Moreover, the large 490-litre trunk makes sure that all your luggage can be transported from point A to B without a fuss.

Exterior

Try hard, but the Nissan Almera might not impress you with its looks anymore. To no surprise, the test of time has got the better of this Japanese sedan and its now high time that Nissan introduces the newest iteration, that is, the fourth-generation model of the Almera in the Philippines. But, since we still have the old-gen model here, let's talk about that. The Almera stands 4,425 mm long, 1,695 mm wide, and 1,505 mm tall. While the on-sale Almera doesn't sport a design that is too attractive, it does, however, features an aerodynamic structure that helps the sedan in achieving better fuel efficiency. Moving on, the front and the rear of the Almera is bolstered by the boomerang-inspired headlamps and taillamps, respectively.

The headlamps flank a chrome front grille on the 1.5 VL AT model, and the units sit on the sides of a matte black front grille on the other three models. On the sides, we see the Nissan Almera riding on 15-inch alloys or 14-inch steel rims on different models. Other bits and pieces on the exterior of the Nissan Almera include front fog lamps, chrome handles, electronically adjustable and retractable ORVMs with integrated LED turn signals, rear spoiler, and a rear window defroster. The available color options involve Alpine White, Brilliant Silver, Bluish Black, Lunar Metallic Grey, Sapphire Metallic Blue, and Iridium Metallic Brown.

Ride & Handling

Considering the fact that the Nissan Almera will be mostly serving the purpose of a daily driver and a family sedan, Nissan has equipped with the Almera with a soft suspension setup. At the front, the sedan features MacPherson Strut with Coil Springs and Stabilizer, while Rigid Axle Torsion Beam handles the duties at the rear. Hop inside the Nissan Almera, and the ride quality offered by the sedan is optimal thanks to finely controlled NVH levels, comfortable enough seats, and soft yet reliable suspension setup. While the clutch on the 1.5-litre model feel a little harder than on the 1.2-litre variant, the same might not turn out to be the case with you.

As for the handling performance, the Almera doesn't feel like a fun-to-drive car and rightly so. Nevertheless, there is a light-weight electrically powered steering wheel that makes it very easy for the driver to manoeuvre the sedan even in heavy traffic and congested areas. Moreover, a compact 5.3-metre turning radius also helps.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

In the Philippines, Nissan offers the Almera with two engine options, a 1.2-litre and 1.5-litre unit. While the smaller HR12DE 1.2-litre inline three-cylinder DOHC 12 valve engine makes 79 PS of maximum power at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 106 Nm at 4,400 revs, the bigger HR15DE 1.5-litre inline four-cylinder DOHC 16 valve motor, on the other hand, is capable of churning out 99 PS of maximum power at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 134 Nm at 4,000 revs. As for the transmission options, the smaller HR12DE 1.2-litre mill can be had with a five-speed manual gearbox only. The bigger HR15DE 1.5-litre, however, can be coupled with either a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic transmission.

Only the base variant, that is, the Almera 1.2 MT is available with the smaller engine, whereas the other three models, the 1.5 E MT, 1.5 E AT, and the 1.5 VL AT come housing the larger powerhouse only. Both the 1.2-litre and 1.5-litre engines are potent enough to accomplish your daily chores. Ride them smooth, and the Japanese motors will be your faithful companion in the long run without any annoyance.

 

Braking & Safety

The Nissan Almera isn't built to be driven like a track car, and as long as you keep that in mind, the brakes will offer just the right bite intensity to take on the corners, heavy traffic, and bringing the sedan to a halt. The braking system on the Almera comprises disc units at the front and drum brakes at the rear end.

Speaking of the safety equipment on board, the Nissan Almera gets a modest safety suite that equips the sedan with the likes of dual front SRS airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)  with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA), speed-sensing door locks, engine immobilizer, three-point seat belts with height adjustment, and rear parking sensors.

Verdict

The fourth-generation Nissan Almera is already on-sale in different markets around the globe. Most important of all, the heavily revisited sedan was launched in Thailand in November 2019, and the Philippine launch should transpire sooner than later. With that said, we will recommend the interested buyer to wait for the updated Almera to land on the Filipino shores. However, in case you want to make a purchase right and Almera is one of the shortlist cars, do consider the likes of the Toyota Vios, KIA Soluto, Volkswagen Santana, GAC GA4, and options which all lie in the same price range.

With its bland styling and lack of trendy features, the on-sale Nissan Almera in the Philippine just doesn't make the cut. Still, if a low-maintenance, spacious, and adequately potent Japanese sedan is what you want at a reasonable price, the Almera with its Php 657,000 to Php 933,000 price range should serve the purpose quite well.

    As a first buyer of a sedan, the Nissan Almera was one of the top priorities, for the sole reason of having a stance of a big and fairly sized sedan at a price which shames most of the hatchbacks in the market right now. This sheer value for money proposition was compelling enough for me to go for the Read More
