Just a year after Nissan reintroduced the Almera in South Africa, the company’s already decided to update it with revised looks and increased standard specification.
On the outside, the new Almera boasts redesigned headlamps, new chrome grille, and new front bumper. The profile has been improved with the fitment of 15-inch alloys and the rear sits a redesigned bumper with parking sensors.
The cabin benefits from a new fabric with contrasting stitching and a new audio system layout integrated with an updated facia. The updated multifunction steering wheel now features telephony controls for the Bluetooth system as well.
The updated Almera range continues to incorporate two models – the 1,5 Acenta 5-speed manual and the 1,5 Acenta 4-speed automatic – both powered by a 73 kW/134 N.m petrol engine. Safety equipment across the range includes ABS with EBD and BAS, auto-locking doors, three-point seat belts for all five seats, dual front airbags and Isofix child seat anchors.
The Almera is available as standard with a 3-year/60 000 km service plan and 3-year/ 100 000 km warranty. Service intervals are 15 000 km.
