Our customers love it for its impressive power, comfort, full functionality, and reliability, which fulfills people of every lifestyle.

The Next Generation V-Motion design and Gray Sky Pearl color turn heads from afar

Nissan has designed the overall look of the New Nissan Almera to reflect a next-generation expression. The previous solid chrome front grille is now replaced with the bolder new entire front end. Every part and fine details, from the front grille, the new brand logo, the hood, and the A-pillar has been enhanced to intensify the V-motion movement and mirror a strong sense of style and mobility experience. The more outstanding Next Generation V-Motion design cue also flows throughout the roof, the side and at the rear, making the car more recognizable even from afar. On the interior, the gliding wing-shape decoration in sporty blue color on the console and stylish bluish trim on the door panels add a more modern & sportier look to the passenger cabin.

The latest new exterior color, Gray Sky Pearl, is a design statement in and of itself. The color shifts at different times of the day and from different angles people look at the car. The color may vary from purplish in a low-light environment and become very blue in full sunlight. When looking at the car from a distance, the viewer may see just the solid color. However, as they get closer, they will start to see the pearl effect. The new shade also creates highlights and darker shadows on the body that stress the vehicle’s sportiness.

NissanConnect Services for modern lifestyle and enhanced safety

In celebration of the always-connected lifestyle, Nissan introduced NissanConnect Services*, an application that allows the proud owner to remotely control and communicate with their New Nissan Almera using their smartphones. Integrated in this app is the first-in-class SOS button in the car that brings instant contact from Nissan’s emergency support center through the in-car audio system.

NissanConnect Services allows the driver to connect and control the car remotely thanks to the intelligent remote control for several commands, namely remote door lock, remote engine start, remote horn, and lights to help the driver find the car in crowded parking, and My Car Finder that helps driver find the car location.

To ensure the driver is fully aware of the vehicle status, this intelligent application allows the driver to see whether the car is already locked and/or when there is something wrong, the maintenance schedule, travel distance, and warns when the driving speed exceeds the limit. When the theft alarm is activated or when the car travels out of the specified area, the application will also alert the owner immediately, enabling the driver to take immediate action and keep track of the vehicle.

Initial 3-year NissanConnect Services is exclusive for New Nissan Almera customers. A separately purchased subscription is required after the initial service expires*.
