The 2020 Nissan Almera (Versa in the US) made its world debut in Florida back in April of 2019. Now, the all-new model has landed in Thailand. It comes with a new small-displacement engine and four variants. The new variants range from the base model E all the way to the top-of-the-line VL.
The all-new Almera’s exterior features the V-Motion grille, which is a signature of newer Nissan vehicles. It has an angular design language leaning towards the aggressive side, which is a welcomed addition compared to the older and softer model we have here. The overall body has also gotten longer. The 2020 Almera comes in with a length of 4,455, a width of 1695, and a height of 1,514mm. This represents a growth of 30mm in length, and a reduction of 14mm in terms of height.
The Nissan subcompact sedan also features more aggressive lights with DRLs flanking the top of the headlight housings. The signal lights have been moved to the very edge of the headlight assembly and LED lights can also be seen within the housing. At the rear of the vehicle, sharp arrow-like taillights point inwards toward the center of the trunk – an edgier look compared to the stale current-generation model.
The Almera’s interior comes with a two-tone theme, with black being the dominant color. Depending on the variant, the dashboard will either have a different accent color or will remain black. It also comes with a 7-inch multi-information display. Depending on the variant, the Almera can come with either an 8-inch touchscreen display or a 2DIN radio. The 8-inch head unit is Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capable.
For safety, the Thai-spec Almera comes with the standard ABS and EBD. The top-spec VL variant features driver and passenger airbags, as well as curtain airbags. The vehicle also comes with 3-point seatbelts all around. ISOFIX is also present in the sedan. Similar to that of the Nissan Terra and Navara, the all-new Almera also shares in the Nissan Intelligent Mobility tech.
Here comes the intriguing part. Powering the all-new Almera is a 1.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine. In Thailand, it is the only power plant available for the vehicle. The small power plant produces a healthy 98 hp and 152 Nm of torque. The sole engine option can only be had with an XTRONIC CVT with D-Step Logic transmission.
For suspension, the all-new vehicle rides on Macpherson struts up front, and a torsion-beam rear suspension. Stopping power comes from disc brakes upfront and drum brakes in the rear.
While the specifications are interesting, especially with the introduction of the small-displacement mill, there is no official word yet if Nissan Philippines will be bringing in the all-new Almera soon. We will keep you posted once we get the official word on the all-new sedan.
