Nissan has re-introduced the Almera in South Africa at a competitive price.

With its roots stretching back to 1995, the Nissan Almera found favour with South Africans initially in its second generation, both as a hatchback and a sedan in 2001. The all-new model is now built in India and is fully imported. It competes against family sedans such as the Hyundai Accent, VW Polo and Kia Rio.

There is only one derivative available with a 1,5-litre petrol engine, however buyers have the option of manual or automatic transmission.

The engine’s power output is 73 kW of power at 6 000 r/min and torque is 134 Nm at 4 000 r/min. The combined fuel consumption is 6,3-litres per 100 km for the manual model, while the four-speed automatic variant achieves 7,2 litres.

On the inside the Almera is spacious and Nissan claims it has class-leading rear legroom and luggage capacity.

Safety equipment comprises ABS brakes with EBD, two airbags and ISOFIX child-seat anchor points.

Standard features include remote central locking, five-inch alloy wheels, electric door mirrors, manual air conditioning, a radio/CD/MP3 audio system with aux input port, four speakers, steering wheel audio controls, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and a comprehensive trip computer The all-new Nissan Almera range is available as standard with a three-year/60 000 km service plan and Nissan’s three-year/ 100 000 km warranty. Service intervals are 15 000 km. Prices
