Just forget about it, comparing the almera to a persona is just shameful

2 airbag? No VSC? In 2018 going to 2019?
Besides almera isn’t all the fuel economical either with its 4-speed auto

It’s either you take a persona, or equivalent if you have cash to spend (city, new Vios etc)

Nissan? Just stay away from this brand in malaysia. It is good and the top brand with world leading quality, beating toyota in china but not in malaysia due to their stupid branch management here.

Just wait for the new Vios before making your decision.

Forget the Almera. The better choice out there would be Persona, Vios or City

Top up a bit get Vios or City. Or save 20k and get a Persona Premium.

An Almera is just shameful to even exist at its current form.

This car is a joke , it's al-mari

Sure it attracts a lot of older generation cause it's big , looks spacious but it's zero in terms of safety. Now if you don't mind and just use for super short distances , it's okay

However , you should consider the new vios - at least the base model has 6 airbags (that's rare !)

Which year u bought this persona? how's the fuel efficiency?

black series almera looks better with the tomei bodykit, but when talk about the safety feature, the sales person say: why think about something which u won't kena? sure u drive carefully right? even now other brand provide so many airbags, u hardly "use"right?

LOL.

Now i'm using 2017 persona and my mom using the almera black series. what i can say.

Space- almera > persona
Pickup- Persona>almera
FC- Persona>almera
Safety- Persona> almera.

Overall almera quite ok at my eye. just the rpm quite high when u trying to potong someone.

the almera looks pretty nice car to drive/have.
but i have heard from friends that the maintenance and upkeep is relatively high.
it's about the same as owning a same year vios.

Pickup for persona before facelift win the clumsy almera?

yeap, based on official engine info Almera's hp and torgue is almost same with close competitors, maybe its transmission not as efficient as others.

It's high to maintain at SC. Service is good. After the warranty ends then you do it outside workshop, it's really cheap. EO &ATF oil volume is about 3liters.

It's their choice. Let them be. Different people have different requirement. That's why Almera still have people buy despite lots of better competition out there. To each their own.

I don't see anything wrong with the almera, for its class, its one of the largest compare to T/H brand - although the look is abit off, but all Nissan cars need bodykit to make it presentable - from Sentra, to Sylphy its been like that since a long time. If performance is not a priority, its a reasonable car. For maintanence - am pretty sure any shop or under tree garage can do the job, don't think its that expensive if its workshop friendly

Totally agree, it looks nicer with the bodykit, and it gives good downforce at high speed. Yes it losses out on specs and tech. It's a reasonable car. It's not a quick car but it's a good car to cruise at 140kmph, quiet actually. If not 70-80kmph really saves a lot of fuel. 😆
