Following the launch of the all new Nissan Almera 2020 at the Automagination Services in Lambak Kanan Industrial Area last Wednesday evening, members of the media had the opportunity to get behind the wheels of the Almera Turbo S yesterday.

Hosted by local sole distributor of Nissan, Boustead Sdn Bhd, the test drive began at the Automagination Services and continued to the famous green lake in RPN Lugu National Housing Scheme for a brief photo shoot before heading to Mc Donald’s and Rizqun International Hotel for another session of photo shoots. The test drive concluded with a drive down to the capital for the last photo shoot with the background of scenic Taman Mahkota Jubli Emas and the magnificent Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque.

Yesterday’s photo shoot locations were chosen based on the alphabets making up the word ‘Almera’.

Boustead Sdn Bhd will be hosting a public test drive at its Nissan showrooms from 9am to 5pm today.

The all new Nissan Almera comes in two specs – the premium class Almera Turbo S and the standard class Almera Turbo. Both specs use the same Nissan Xtronic CVT transmission with D-Step Logic and comes in Radiant Red, Monarch Orange, Black Star, Storm White, Gun metallic and Brilliant Silver.

The Turbo S distinguishes itself from the standard class with a prominent chrome V-motion grille exterior, updated boomerang LED signature light, Around View Monitor (AVM), Moving Object Detection, Front Collision Warning, Front Emergency Brake, and Hill Start Assist – technologies of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.

It also comes equipped with Auto A/C, AIVI 8-inch display and a Push-Start engine button.
