Nissan Almera Workshop Service Repair Free Manuals The Nissan Almera is officially categorised as a ‘light sedan’, but you quickly appreciate there’s nothing pint-sized about the latest Micra-based addition to Nissan Australia’s resurgent passenger car line-up when you see it in the flesh.
The new Nissan Almera is the longest car in its class– bigger than the Honda City, and sedan versions of the Holden Barina, Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio and the Toyota Yaris– and with an overall length of 4425mm, is shorter than the original Holden Commodore by less than the width of your computer screen (280mm to be exact).
The Nissan Almera makes good use of its segment-straddling dimensions, too, boasting more rear-seat legroom than any other city car as well as a massive 490-litre boot, which, remarkably, is just three milk bottles short of the boot of the current Commodore.
Unfortunately, the Almera misses out on the 60:40 split folding rear seat of its above competitors, instead forcing owners to make do with a fixed backrest, which limits your ability to transport longer items.
It’s a sign of cost cutting, and one of list of things you have to accept with the budget-conscious Almera, which is attractively priced from $16,990 before on-road costs.
Cruise control is not available, neither is a USB input to connect you phone or Bluetooth audio streaming to play you tunes wirelessly (although an auxiliary jack and Bluetooth phone connectivity are standard across the range). The steering wheel also adjusts only for rake, not reach.
