Nissan AlmeraThu, 30 Aug 2012 00:00:00 -0700
The new Nissan Almera was launched yesterday at the 2012 Moscow auto show, designed specifically for the Russian market.
The design team sought to combine contemporary Nissan design cues with more classic features on this 4,656mm-long five-seat sedan. The Almera has a long wheelbase of 2,700mm while the luggage area is said to be disguised by the sweep of the roofline and rear window that flows into the trunk lid.
Nissan's standard wide four bar grille is adorned with chrome - along with the door handles - with the chrome containing anti-corrosion technology specifically developed by Nissan to prevent damage from the chemical de-icer used in Russia.
Inside, the rear compartment offers more knee room than some premium D segment cars and at 500 liters the trunk is one of the largest in its class.
Following established Nissan practice Almera will be available in three grades: Welcome, Comfort and top-of-the-range Tekna.
In the Comfort model the air vents are finished in chrome while the trim material is patterned. Large door mirrors are finished in the body color, of which there are six – and the door handles and trunk finisher are chromed.
