- Successful reintroduction of ALMERA nameplate in South Africa to continue with enhanced value offering
- Updated face and interior aligns ALMERA with fellow new-age Nissan products
- Unbeatable value-for-money pegs ALMERA as leader of the pack
(Rosslyn, South Africa, 1 SEPTEMBER 2014) – Nissan’s price-busting and space-abounding ALMERA is now available with updated looks, enhanced specification and even greater value. With C-segment sedan proportions and an exceptional B-segment sedan price tag, the updated ALMERA continues to deliver way above expectations.
“With cumulative sales of some 3 500 units, the new Nissan ALMERA has seen great success in the South African market since we reintroduced the nameplate in 2013, forming a strong following in both the rental and private buyer markets,” comments Alda Gildenhuys, ALMERA Product Manager at Nissan South Africa.
“For 2014 we are offering even more car for the money, with updated looks and enhanced specifications elevating ALMERA to lead the pack in its segment. The space and versatility so prominently offered by the Nissan ALMERA remain as key characteristics and reconfirms ALMERA as a forerunner.”
Exterior changes to the updated ALMERA include edgy new headlights which flank a new, more distinguished chrome grille, along with a more aggressive front bumper for a more assertive attitude. The sides of the vehicle now play host to updated 15-inch alloy wheels and at the rear a redesigned bumper adds a sporty touch. Rear parking sensors now make parking the ALMERA that much easier.
On the inside, a more welcoming atmosphere has been created thanks to new seat fabric with contrasting stitching, and an updated fascia with a new audio system design and classier air conditioning controls. Class-leading rear legroom and the ALMERA’s massive 490-litre boot remain in place.
An updated steering wheel in both models adds an upmarket feel, now also including telephone controls for the standard Bluetooth and still featuring satellite controls for the new audio system, now complete with USB functionality.
The updated Nissan ALMERA range continues to incorporate two models – the ALMERA 1.5 Acenta 5-speed manual and the ALMERA 1.5 Acenta 4-speed automatic – both powered by a 73 kW/ 134 Nm petrol engine. Safety equipment across the range includes ABS with EBD and BAS, auto-locking doors, three-point seat belts for all five seats, dual front airbags and ISOFIX child seat anchors.
Both Nissan ALMERA models are available as standard with a class-leading 3-year/60 000 km service plan and Nissan’s 3-year/ 100 000 km warranty. Service intervals are 15 000 km
