Nissan claims that their new B-segment sedan fighter can return a fuel efficiency figure of 5.4-litres/100 km and in turn, travel up to 650 km on a full tank (35 litres).
In terms of handling, the Almera will be fitted with MacPherson struts up front and torsion beams at the back. Braking is handled by a pair of ventilated discs for the fronts and drums behind - no matter the variant.
6 colours are available, three of them brand new: Monarch Orange, Dark Metal Grey and Radiant Red. Staples such as Brilliant White, Diamond Black and Tungsten Silver are available as well.
The base Almera - VL - rolls around on 15-inch wheels while 16-inch units are fitted on VLP and VLT variants. All three trim levels have a 15-inch spare tyre too.
One minor touch that's exclusive for the range-topping VLT is a subtle gloss black bootlid spoiler.
The Almera measures as such:

Overall, the all-new Almera is a slightly larger car than its predecessor: measuring 70 mm longer (previously 4,425 mm), 45 mm wider (previously 1,695 mm) and sitting 40 mm lower (previously 1,500 mm).
The wheelbase has been lengthened by 20 mm (previously 2,600 mm) too.
The Almera comes with a moderate 482-litre trunk, which can be further expanded to fit longer items thanks to...
...60:40 split-fold rear seats that come standard on all trim levels!
Under the boot, you'll find a full-sized spare tyre as well.
