Before I could share any more on the experience, there's already a few comments here and there.

Got the Almera in white, paint so far all good. Whether thin or not, I have no idea. But I do wash the car weekly.

I have no complains with the interior aside from the Beige wrap on the Dashboard and on the seats. Would rather have it in all black.

MY OVERALL DRIVING EXPERIENCE THUS FAR (FROM PURCHASE TO 1,000KM)

Just keep in mind that, I do not know much driving terms, just a regular person sharing so others may find it helpful.

- It's quiet. Everything is dampened quite well. For the doors, you may have to close it a little bit more harder haha. Nothing wrong with that. Quiet maybe because of the Continental UC6 that it comes with.

- If I'm not mistaken, Full Tank is about RM 65, I will fill it until I am able to see the petrol at the top of the hole. Have not gone entirely on the highway but so far it with a city highway + city, it's about 450 - 470KM per fill (my experience). The counting on the meter shows 13KM/L I think. Home to work is about 1.5KM. So not much long distance travel, all nearby and sometimes highway.

- Used the Cruise Control once, don't find it really useful unless it's Adaptive Cruise Control.

- The Side / Rear / 360 Cameras are great and pretty accurate. During my initial test drive, the Salesperson showed how accurate it was. So no complains there. I like it that when I put it in reverse and turn the steering wheel, the guides turn as well. Don't want to start any fires here but it's better than the cameras on the current Flagship X50.

- There was one time I was about to enter the Smart Tunnel and just before entering I think there was this Height Limit sign just above the road (stretched across). I was going at about 80KM/H I think and suddenly the emergency brake thingy kicked in and went off after about 1 second / half a second. Not sure why but maybe it detected a possible hit.

- I use an Android and there's no Android Auto. But it connects via Bluetooth automatically whenever I switch on the car, so that doesn't really bother me. I still prefer to use Waze on my phone. It has Apple CarPlay but it's not wireless though.

- Acceleration is alright. It does the job when I need it to. It can take curves at a pretty reasonable speed, tried it at 90KM/H+, I didn't feel much, was pretty planted and smooth. I think the seats (because it's pretty bolstered on the side) helped as well.

- The top of the Dashboard is flat so can place the Smart Tag Holder and etc easily.

- Aircond is cold. And I don't think rear air vents are needed. Even with the lowest speed, it's cold.

That's about all there is thus far. Just done my 1,000KM Service and will update soon!

Any questions, drop ahead

Filling up petrol to the max like that is actually causing harm to your car

I nearly bought this car. And then I changed job and it didn't feel very stable and someone says to me: "If you lose your job in 2 years, you'll probably sell this car and still owns a bank for its low resale value."

So I went for a City. Don't get me wrong, I love the new Almera Turbo. There no full Level 2 autonomous and second hand value but is offset by its C-segment sound suppression.

Perhaps in the future I have cash to spend, I'll probably get this car.

If your loan is over 5 years, even 2 years you sell for Honda or Toyota also will loss money and need to pay back to bank.
FYI 1~3 years car at least 30% from original cost will lost once you put up the no. plate and move on the road, unless you sell it your own at a higher price tag or get it tender at online car website and see which willing buyer want to take it.

True. But the lack of market pricing for second hand Almera Turbo at that time make it hard for me to ascertain. Got no choice but to take up City at that time because old car getting to 17 years and really repairing is getting really expensive.

the 1.0 engine itself is turbo, compared to other competitors are just 1.5 N/A.
Besides that the safety features, accessories & design that Nissan offered nowadays really top of the range, so it still justified of the higher price range.

agreed, i hate to say this but till nowadays there is still way too many people noisy regarding displacement ( cc small / big ). Current tech turbo engine is reliable enough if you properly maintain it, can last years without causing any isu related on engine.

Punchy 1.0 Turbo is much much better than 1.5 NA especially to those who only use it for short trip/town driving/grab and etc.

This is surprising that we don't see more of this model on the road.

Looks good, handles good, adequate power, plenty of torque, very good mileage .

Great reviews from many reviewers.

Maybe a tad more pricy than other B-segments.

So, why don't we see more of this on the road?

Surely it's not just the turbo?

I believe its probably due to branding issue. And Tan Chong isnt putting hard effort in building the brand name.
Furthermore they are already making losses.
https://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/tan-...n-losses-around

Secondly, at RM 83,888 , and a 1.0L turbo which gives a mere 100 horses (consumers always like to look at horsepower, even though they are not racing) and some would even look at "Eh its only 1.0L displacement" typical mindset.
The previous Almera wasn't doing that well either even with the standard 1.5NA.

Its also way more expensive than City 1.5L , which starts from Rm 77,600 (and the E spec is around the corner at RM 85,800)

And the popular Proton X50 (despite different segment) is just a shy RM 86,300 onwards, which attracts customers with the 1.5L turbo, and quite good looking dashboard interior.

i wonder how long X50 waiting time now, sure it's at least 6month. Selling like hotcake. I like the new Almera, if compared to previous gen, it's like worm turning to butterfly.

However for that kind of price tag, i will probably go for used Optima GT/Elantra Sport(Turbo)
