Bangkok – The recently launched New Nissan Almera has proven to deliver an impressive driving experience in both daily driving routine and leisure time thanks to its advanced safety features, NissanConnect Services, spaciousness and comfort, agility, power, and responsiveness from its 1Lt Turbo engine.
Isao Sekiguchi, President of Nissan Motor Thailand and President of Nissan ASEAN, said, "The New Almera continues to delight our customers of every lifestyle. Those who have already experienced driving the new sedan reflected that they were impressed with the overall offerings: a more eye-catching appearance, enhanced safety features, including those earlier found in premium cars, superior comfort and the perfect balance between cabin and trunk space, smooth driving and responsiveness from its powerful yet fuel-efficient engine, and NissanConnect Services. The New Almera is just perfect for everyone and every lifestyle."
To demonstrate how Nissan Almera can lift one's driving experience to another level, Nissan has arranged a series of one-day test drives. Short excursions from Bangkok to satellite cities like Ayutthaya, Saraburi, and Suphanburi provide full opportunity for participants to try all the key features and feel for themselves how this new compact sedan can make a difference while they enjoy the beauty of the nature, appreciate historic sites, indulge with a nice cup of coffee in a chic café, and discover interesting local life in those cities.
Nice picture with the New Almera design and chic Gray Sky Pearl color
The one-day trips start with great pictures. Its freshened, bold look makes the New Almera a good photo companion. The enhanced V-Motion design that amplifies the next generation expression in the bolder entire front, the new brand logo, the hood, the roof line, and the rear have intensified the forward movement look and feel. On the interior, the gliding wing-shape decoration in sporty blue color on the console and stylish bluish trim on the door panels add a more modern & sportier look to the passenger cabin.
The latest new exterior color, Gray Sky Pearl, is a design statement in and of itself. It shifts at different times of the day, varying from purplish in a low-light environment and become very blue in full sunlight, and the angle people look at the car.
Driving "At the Speed You Want"
On any road condition, Nissan's unique HRA0 1.0-litre turbo engine ensures drivers of responsiveness, power, and confidence when overtaking. The engine produces a maximum power of 100 horsepower (Ps) and torque of 152 Nm, providing strong and fast acceleration from continuous torque (flat torque). While allowing drivers to enjoy "the speed you want", the engine includes an Idling Stop feature that can automatically cut off the engine to save more fuel. This enables the New Almera's fuel efficiency to reach a maximum level of 23.3 km/liter*.
Confident overtaking on highways is enhanced, thanks to the XTRONIC CVT transmission system. The innovative D-Step Logic not only gives smooth gear changes but also provide instant acceleration.
A number of technical innovations derived from the iconic Nissan GT-R technology have enabled the New Almera to improve heat management and combustion provided by the mirror bore coating that helps reduce cylinder friction and weight.
Full functions, greater comfort, and utilities that offer "All you need"
Thanks to a wide range of comfort features in the New Almera, drivers and passengers will remain relaxed after a few hours of travel and still have full energy to explore famous attractions and stylish cafés at their destination, as well as enjoy nice meals at local restaurants.
With the wireless charger**, ones can be assured that their smartphone will never run out of battery, even after taking hundreds of photos of the places they visited, foods they had, and nice views on the road. The cruise control allows drivers to rest assured of greater control and the ability to keep the car's speed steady without worrying. All in the car find it more comfortable thanks to the spacious passenger cabin, ample knee space for both the front and rear seats, and the "Quole Modure" premium seats that do not accumulate nor reflect heat. The prefect balance of cabin and trunk spaces answer different needs of everyone joining the journey.
Traveling alone or with a company of good friends, the New Almera sets a nice ambience with the latest upgraded infotainment system. The NissanConnect supports smartphone connectivity via both Android Auto** and Apple CarPlay; the navigation system via application, i.e., Google Map on its 8-inch touchscreen display audio system; and voice recognition system.
Always connect with your car through NissanConnect Services
NissanConnect Services*** application brings easy communication between the drivers and the New Nissan Almera. Integrated in this app is the first-in-class SOS button in the car that brings instant contact from Nissan's emergency support center through the in-car audio system. Through a smartphone, the driver can remotely start the engine and switch on the air-conditioning system, a clever feature that keeps the passenger cabin cool and ready for a new and comfortable trip. Remote door lock, remote horn, and lights, and My Car Finder are all also easily accessed via the driver's smartphone.
This intelligent application also keeps the drivers informed of their vehicle status, such as checking door lock, maintenance schedule, travel distance, and warns when the driving speed exceeds the limit, or something went wrong with the car. When the theft alarm is activated or when the car travels out of the specified area, the application will also alert the owner immediately, enabling the driver to take immediate action and keep track of the vehicle.
