The all-new fourth generation Nissan Almera has been sighted in Thailand, just two months after the model was first shown to the public in Florida.
This lone spyshot of the all-new Almera has been doing its rounds on various social media platforms, indicating that Nissan Thailand is readying its new B-segment sedan.
Codenamed N18, the all-new Nissan Almera continues the lineage with a considerably sharper exterior design coupled with a snazzier-looking interior.
In terms of safety, the all-new Almera boasts a wide range of driving assistance systems, such as Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, Lane Departure Warning and High Beam Assist. Also available on higher range variants are Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Intelligent Driver Alertness and Intelligent Cruise Control. However, these features are for the US market model and may not reflect local specifications.
For the US market, the all-new Almera is powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that is carried over from the predecessor model. However, for the ASEAN region, the Almera gets several different engines – Thailand gets a 1.2-litre petrol engine, allowing the Almera to conform to the country’s Eco Car scheme, while Malaysia and Indonesia gets a larger 1.5-litre petrol engine.
When the previous generation Almera was introduced here back in 2012, that model’s key highlight was its segment-leading rear legroom and boot space, but that crown was snatched by the Honda City was introduced in 2014. For the past couple of years, the Almera remained largely unchanged, barring some minor styling updates.
