马来西亚2020新款Nissan Almera将配备涡轮增压!

在大马Honda还忙着在Facebook上宣传全新款City时,Edaran Tan Chong Motor(ETCM)却在悄悄地研究全新的2020款 Nissan Almera,而且还准备了一些惊喜。15英寸的轮圈是泰国版的标配根据知情人士透露,大马版的2020新款Nissan Almera将会和泰国版搭载同一具引擎——1.0升的涡轮增压三缸引擎,动力输出为100 PS和152 Nm。这具引擎只会搭配CVT自排变速。换装了新的涡轮增压引擎,即将到来的全新Nissan Almera很有可能是唯一搭载强制进气引擎的日本B级轿车。除此之外,只有另一款B级车有涡轮增压,那就是Volkswagen Vento Highline,其搭载的是一具1.2升的涡轮增压汽油引擎。既然已经确认会搭载涡轮增压引擎,那么全新Nissan Almera的其它方面跟竞争对手比起来又如何呢?我们也认为应该不会有差距,如果又的话,也只会更好,因为ETCM在C27 Nissan Serena和Nissan X-Trail的改款上做得很不错。至于新款Honda City,这款新车型不会像
