It’s almost here - the compact yet spacious four-door Nissan Almera sedan will descend on dealerships by the end of the year. The lighter Thai-built model is roomier than its hatch sibling the Micra, making it ideal for buyers seeking a smaller car.
The Almera is based on the V platform, Nissan and alliance partner Renault’s new global front-drive architecture, first seen last year when the fourth-generation ‘K13’ Micra was launched. It also boasts a 75kW/136Nm 1.5-litre four-cylinder, seen at the higher end of the Australian Micra range.
That’s where the similarities end, however. The overseas-spec Almera is 4495mm long, 1695mm wide and 1445mm high and rides on a 2535mm wheelbase. In comparison, the Micra is 3780mm long, 1665mm wide, 1525mm high and has a 2435mm wheelbase.
