After the launch of the updated version of the Nissan Terra, the local distributor of the Japanese brand might be introducing another one soon.

The Almera could soon have its latest iteration in the Philippines.

Based on a tip shared to Carmudi PhilippinesNissan in the Philippines will be introducing the latest version of the subcompact sedan — which has been in neighboring countries Thailand and Malaysia for quite some time already — by next month, if everything goes according to plan.

Sadly, this model will be imported to the country, unlike before when it was produced locally.

Based on the information shared back in 2019, the local distributor is “already in the planning stage” and might take more than a year before being released here.

The plan to bring in the newest version of the Nissan Almera is still a viable option for the local arm of the Japanese automaker as total Almera sales have reached 20,542 units as of October 2019. Its competitors in the market include the Toyota ViosHonda CityHyundai Accent, to name a few.

The Thai-spec Almera that was launched in 2019 has a one-liter turbo engine unlike the presently-available model locally that has a 1.5-liter powertrain. But do not let the lower displacement fool you; the same one-liter engine designed for fuel economy can still dish out good performance numbers as it can provide 152Nm of torque and 118hp.

In Thailand, no manual transmission option is offered for the new Nissan Almera— only CVT — despite being offered in six variants.

Further, the all-new Nissan Almera seen in Thailand is also fitted with an infotainment system that is Apple CarPlay compatible, and can access one’s phone applications via the in-car monitor screen. It also has a navigation system via Google Map that can be used via voice recognition.

Moreover, this version of the Nissan Almera (presumably the top-spec variety) is equipped with the Nissan Intelligent Mobility System, which features an around-view monitor, moving object detection, forward collision warning, emergency braking,  rear cross traffic alert, blind spot warning and hill start assist.

Prices for the all-new Nissan Almera in Thailand start at 509,000 baht (P772,094) up to 659,000 baht (P999,626) so we are assuming that the Philippines might be seeing the sedan with a price tag as high as P1 million.
