Nissan Almera-The Best Family Sedan In 2013

Finally I have sat in one of the most highly rated sedan in Malaysia-Nissan Almera. I have heard so much about Almera but I had never really given it a second thought...perhaps it was not a looker? I was so wrong and Nissan Almera turned out to be a diamond in the rough. Wherever I go Nissan Almera is everywhere. The fact that Almera is the cheapest non-national 1.5-litre B Segment car in Malaysia right now, with price ranging from RM66,000 to RM79,800, has made it the darling sedan for Malaysian families. I am enticed as well!

Sporty and fluid!

Nissan Almera hits the road in 3 different variations: the standard specification E, the well-equipped V and the full-specification VL. Nissan Almera has been built on the all-new global "V" (versatile) platform which uses a lightweight yet rigid body. So Nissan has upped the ante again to deliver mobility without comprising driver's and passengers' safety. As for the VL model, you will have Intelligent Key at your disposal, allowing you to lock or unlock your Almera just by touching the switch on your front door handle. Besides being endowed with Push Button Ignition, Almera VL also comes with Automatic Climate Control to keep your cold/warm and cosy. Awesome!

Nissan Almera VL comes with the following:

Under the hood, Nissan Almera is powered by the latest 1.5-litre HR15DE four-cylinder engine featuring Continuously Variable-valve Timing Control (CVTC) which offers unbelievable excellent fuel efficiency of 14.9km/l, which I think is amazing for such a huge sedan! There are 2 front airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, as well as ISOFIX Child Seat System for parents' peace of mind.

Zone Body Construction: Better at absorbing impact

Did I mention how damn spacious this Nissan Almera is? I was literally shocked to know that Nissan Almera can be designed to have such ample space for driver and passengers! The much-touted legroom is really, really spacious as claimed. That is why I think Nissan Almera is the best family sedan especially when you travel long-distances. Nissan Almera really boasts best-in-class cabin space and this alone will be one of the reasons why I would want to own it! :)

Introducing Nissan Almera

All 3 different models of Nissan Almera come with a 3-year or 100,000km warranty (whichever comes first). Honestly I can't help but feel that Nissan Almera is the best family sedan. Go and test drive one Nissan Almera right now. You will be hooked instantly, trust me! Being priced at such affordable bracket, Nissan Almera is really a boon for family who looks for comfort without burning their pockets.
