Nissan Almera

Nissan AlmeraThe Nissan Almera was a small family car built by Nissan from 1995 to 2006. The Almera name was essentially the European export-market name for the Nissan Pulsar / Nissan Sentra / Nissan Bluebird Sylphy. The Nissan Almera was designed to offer best-in-class equipment and technology and was always considered a very road capable car offering sharp, precise handling, minimal bodyroll and decent tyre grip, especially in the GTi and post 2003 versions. Launched early in 2000, the second generation Nissan Almera differed from its predecessor with smooth, curved lines. Some still thought it bland in comparison with its rivals although the Almera was selling strongly worldwide. The N16 Almera was based on Nissan’s global MS-Platform, which was Nissan’s first new platform to be developed after the partnership with Renault. The MS Platform was also the base for the new Primera and Almera Tino. The Almera Hatchback is basically the same as Pulsar Hatchback sold in Australia and New Zealand. The Almera 4-door Sedan is based on the Bluebird Sylphy, but has different front end.
