USA Witnessed The Debut of All-New 2020 Nissan Almera

While the Toyota Vios and Honda City have made a lot of progress, Nissan Almera is still walking on the same pattern and pretty much remain the same as the previous version, except for some minor styling changes.Entering the Malaysian market in 2012, the Almera was boasted of having class-leading rear legroom and boot space under a very competitive price. However, all these selling points were fading out since the launch of the all-new Honda City in 2014. New Toyota Vios also has equipped quiete

Why the all-new 2020 Nissan Almera will be a turning point for ETCM

Before we get started, let’s get this out of the way – the current-generation Nissan Almera is anything but desirable.Not only the current model lacks any modern safety equipment (no stability control and only two airbags), its quirky looks won’t be winning any beauty contests as well.Enter the all-new, fourth-generation Nissan Almera – the model that will hopefully lift Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM)’s earnings.It made its global debut in New York back in April 2019

Model ini dilihat sekadar sebuah kenderaan yang sesuai untuk bergerak dari titik A ke titik B tanpa sebarang ciri-ciri yang menonjol.Penawaran hanya 2 beg udara dan rekaan yang langsung tak menarik membawa kepada sentimen-sentimen yang tidak baik untuk dibincangkan.

The previous-generation Nissan Almera definitely didn’t win in the looks or performance department but it was one of the cheapest non-national B-segment sedans in the market.With the all-new 2020 Nissan Almera, it appears that it traded its looks for a more premium price. In fact, it’s more expensive than the all-new Honda City aside from the City RS which has yet to announce its price.Does this mean that the City is a better buy than the Almera?

If youre currently shopping for a B-segment sedan, chances are, the Honda City and Toyota Vios are the default 2 choices in your shortlist. Nissan Almera, whats that?
