KUALA LUMPUR, 6 January 2015 – Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) today launched the much-anticipated New Nissan Almera (Facelift), which now sports a bolder, more dynamic appearance. First introduced by ETCM in October 2012, the Nissan Almera quickly captured the hearts of Malaysians to become the best-selling Nissan model in the country. To date, there are now more than 56,000 units on Malaysian roads.


The New Nissan Almera features a newly-designed front bumper with signature three dimensional front grille and new multi-reflector headlamps, chrome-highlighted fog lamps, sleek wing mirror signal lights and new Y-Spoke 15-inch alloy wheels. These new features, combined with subtle chrome accents, sleek lines and broad shoulders make the New Almera a stylishly sporty sedan that redefines elegance.

Those looking to elevate their Almera driving experience can opt for the Almera NISMO Performance Package – the star of the new Almera line-up. The new and latest Almera NISMO Package makes its first global premier in Malaysia, and transforms the New Almera for a more aggressive and aerodynamic look. The package consists of a front and rear bumper spoiler, side skirts, trunk lid spoiler, 16-inch Alloy Wheels with Continental tyres, a Sports Exhaust Muffler, and a Performance Suspension System. NISMO is Nissan’s renowned global motorsport, performance and personalization brand and firmly embodies Nissan’s “Innovation that Excites” philosophy and racing heritage.
The New Almera is available in E (Manual and Automatic), V, and VL variants – with options to upgrade to the full NISMO Performance Package, or alternatively, the NISMO Aero Package.


The New Almera comes fitted with an elegant new steering wheel with integrated audio controls, Fine Vision Meter with Multi Information Display, and a redesigned centre console in premium piano black. ETCM has also made available the latest, first-insegment Android-based Multimedia Navigation system with a 6.5-inch screen. The system offers internet connectivity with Virtual Acoustic Positioning System (VAPS), Rear View Camera, iPod connectivity, USB and Bluetooth.


Under the hood, the 1.5-litre HR15DE four cylinder engine with Continuously Variablevalve Timing Control (CVTC) offers impressive acceleration with outstanding fuel economy of 14.9km/l for automatic transmission, and 15.9km/l for manual transmission.

“The ever-popular Nissan Almera is much loved for its value-for-money, thoughtful practicality, and now, it comes with innovative features that perfectly marry elegance with sportiness through the new NISMO Packages. With this refinement, this model is not only economical, but very stylish – and showcases our continued commitment towards providing affordable and attractive car ownership to Malaysians.” said Mr. Tan Keng Meng, the Director of Marketing and Product Planning of ETCM.
