Driving Impressions

Nissan Almera Turbo_VLT_Side ViewDuring a brief driving stint in the Almera Turbo, the 3-cylinder turbo engine performed admirably especially getting off the traffic lights. Some lag is expected from a turbo engine and the way the CVT works needs some getting used to, but I don’t foresee these to be deal breakers in the long run because these are factors owners will adapt to. I did not get a chance to take it on a prolonged highway cruise so there is not much to comment on how the engine performs. But for urban driving, there is hardly any issue in terms of power delivery.

While waiting at the lights, only a slight vibration was felt in the cabin. When taken up to the highway speed limit, cabin noise suppression was also quite effective. It is of course not on par with premium brands or models, but among its natural rivals, it is one of the better ones.

Additional noise insulation in the cabin bay is found in the Malaysian Almera.
Additional noise insulation in the cabin bay is found in the Malaysian Almera.

According to ETCM, particular attention was paid to improve NVH with additional insulation especially in the cabin. This makes the Malaysian version of the Almera better than the Thailand version. Our version also has more premium features than our northern neighbour’s. Comparing the top variants of each, we get LED daytime running lights, larger 16″ wheels, combination leather seats, and cruise control.

Furthermore, ALL variants of the Malaysian Almera come standard with 60:40 split folding rear seats, a feature its rivals don’t offer as standard. Coming standard also are Forward Collision Warning and Emergency Braking.
