It is official – the upcoming all-new 2020 Nissan Almera for Malaysia will be getting a turbocharged engine, replacing the outgoing model’s naturally-aspirated unit.On the surface, it appears that Edaran Tan Chong Motor, the official distributor of Nissan vehicles, has wisen up and decided to give Malaysians a better powertrain than before. But is that really the case?Well, the actual reason is due to the fact that ETCM does not have any other engine option to offer in the all-new Al

The 2020 Nissan Almera looks like a winner but we might not get the new turbo engine

We are here at the 2019 Thailand International Motor Expo. We have just covered the all-new 2020 Honda City but the City is not the only star attraction here. Just a few weeks earlier, the 2020 Nissan Almera made its regional debut in Thailand.Like the 2020 Honda City, the all-new 2020 Nissan Almera is also powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine.However, the Nissan’s three pot engine is quite down on power, making just 100 PS at 5,000 rpm and 152 Nm from 2,400 rpm to 4,0

Nissan Almera 2020 bakal mengubah nasib Nissan di Malaysia?

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.
