September 4, 2020, Kuala Lumpur – Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd, the official distributor for Nissan vehicles in Malaysia, has opened its bookings for the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo.
The all-new Nissan Almera Turbo comes with an all-new 1.0-litre turbo engine paired with the Xtronic CVT with D-Step logic system and sport mode, resulting in 99 hp at 5,000 rpm and 152 Nm of torque at 2,400 to 4,000 rpm.
Nissan claims that it has a fuel efficiency of 18.4 km/l, which is equivalent to 650 km driving range on a 35 litres full tank.
The all-new 1.0-litre turbo engine also features a number of technical innovations. It has the electronic waste gate that improves the turbo compression by opening and closing the waste gate valve more efficiently thus reducing turbo lag and giving the driver the instant acceleration. There’s also the Mirror Bore Coating technology adapted from the legendary Nissan GT-R, which helps to reduce friction between the piston ring and inner cylinder that contributes to increased durability, reduce wear and tear, and head management.
Apart from that, the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo comes with the Nissan Intelligent Mobility and Nissan Safety Shield 360 advanced safety technologies. Features such as the intelligent forward collision warning and intelligent forward emergency braking are standard across all 3 variants while the top variants are equipped with blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert and intelligent around view monitor with moving object detection.
The exterior design now features the signature V-motion front grille and boomerang-shaped LED headlamps, that run across the front end to a sleek low profile floating roof and signature rear LED tail lights. It creates an aerodynamic and cutting-edge presence, which describes the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo as an energetic, provocative and confident sedan.
On the inside, the latest ‘Gliding Wing’ instrument panel surrounded by touches of chrome, piano black and carbon-fibre pattern texture finishing, accompanied by a sporty flat bottom steering wheel, soft padded double stitching leather wrap dashboard, 8-inch advance touchscreen display audio and full colour 7-inch semi digital instrument cluster.
It also has a 482 litres boot space that easily carries 4 golf bags, if that is not enough, the foldable 60:40 split back seats can make way for more space.
The top two variants of the Nissan Almera Turbo are equipped with six SRS airbags, while the standard variant comes with two. Other safety features include the vehicle dynamic control, traction control system, anti-lock braking system, brake assist, electronic brake force distribution, hill start assist and ISOFIX child seat anchor points on all variants.
There are six dynamic colours to choose from, of which 3 are all-new. The new colours are Radiant Red, Monarch Orange, Dark Metal Grey, joining the existing Brilliant White, Diamond Black and Tungsten Silver.
