The good people of Nissan invited us along for a little trip to Port Dickson and then Melaka to see if we could find ‘Surprisingly More’ in their best-selling sedan, the Almera.
Taking a rather scenic route down to Port Dickson, and then another one topped with rain to Melaka is a ride to be enjoyed in any kind of vehicle. The sights and sounds of a drive along coastal roads and through the twisty back roads of unexploited Malaysia is truly a memorable experience; it’s a rare picturesque and harmonic adventure.
But we weren’t sent for a joyride through the country just for its sights and sounds; we were sent to experience all that’s the recently launched Nissan Almera. A car that Nissan claims you’ll find ‘Surprisingly More’ in.
We started off the adventure a day before we set off; when Nissan’s closely guarded secret of ‘how much?’ was unravelled. RM 66,800. Surprisingly less – but in a good way.
That alone sets Nissan well in the battle for B-segment supremacy against rivals like the Honda City, Toyota Vios and even puts a damper on quite a few Protons and Peroduas.
Prior to our adventure, the Nissan Almera was already a global winner – Nissan’s best-selling sedan.
So poised for a good start to our trip, we set off to find out what about the Almera could make it your next car purchase.

Just make the car more beautiful to look at and it will sell. The Almera now looks like a turd. Those who drive the car will also look like a turd.
What can I say. The car is just utterly horrible to look at. The rear looks like ****ed, somehow deformed. I agree with the poster below "Ugly Almera" that those who drive this Almera will look like a turd, since the car looks like a turd by itself.
Surely the ugliest car I've come across in 2012.
