TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Nissan Almera gets Nismo Performance Package

Nissan's Malaysian assembler, Edaran Tan Chong Motor, is teaming up with Nissan Motorsports to create the Nissan Almera Nismo Performance Package for its local market. The variant is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of the year.

Drawing inspiration from Nismo's motorsport technologies, the Almera Nismo Performance Package features an aerodynamic design that has been optimized for the model, "with enhanced handling characteristics and superior agility for a more dynamic driving experience."

To go with the front and rear bumper spoilers, side skirts and rear spoiler, the Almera Nismo Performance Package also comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension, and a Nismo exhaust muffler.

"We are glad to have our Nismo brand in Nissan’s mainstream models as it offers something special in terms of advanced motorsports technology, dynamic performance capabilities, and distinctively sporty design," said Nismo president Shoichi Miyatani.

If Nissan Motor Philippines brought this variant here, would you consider getting it?

    Nice kits! :) If this variant will be brought here in the Philippines and will be priced under 1M, it's a good pick ;)

    hope they put something more on the POWER department.. not only to mention that this car creates less power for a 1.5 engine.

    Nice kits but you gotta ask yourself...does it really need those "aerodynamic enhancements"? Haha
    • buckbeak18 Jun 19 2013 @ 11:03am
      it's for better fuel consumption. :)
      • GotToRead Jun 19 2013 @ 11:12am
        Yeah, like totally. So many factors affecting fuel economy numbers. With the added weight, I think the effect of the aerodynamic enhancements are negated aerodynamics does not take affect when you're crawling in traffic, which I see is the natural territory of the Almera. :)

          Aerodynamic enhancements will be useful in highways indeed. I think the added kits enhanced aero enhanced handling should be mated with a more powerful engine so that the added features will totally serve its purpose. Considering the added weight and the population that will get the almera, I agree with you. cheers ;)

            Well, I give them the credit on tweaking the suspension. Passengers should expect a bumpier ride but Nismo should have at least gave the engine an upgrade, we allknow that the Almera's engine is weaker compared to the the other 1.5L cars.
            • buckbeak18 Jun 19 2013 @ 11:06pm
              Indeed. They should also consider putting a turbo-diesel engine on it for better fuel consumption (not to mention diesel is cheaper than gasoline) and more powerful indeed. I think that would be a torqy subcompact with nice kits. hehe :))
              • GotToRead Jun 19 2013 @ 11:28pm
                Yeah. That would be a better choice.

    Where is CVT?

    dagdagan na din sana ng nismo air filter and headers (kung meron). the n16 had a nismo airfilter...
  • HD Jun 20 2013 @ 01:17am
    maybe if they put a turbo 1.6 engine in there ...

    I would prefer to get a GTR or a 370z rather than this baby. But hey, honestly it so sultry. Especially the curves.
