Nissan Just Made The Almera Look Sportier With This New Sportech Variant


The Philippines is still waiting for the all-new Nissan Almera to arrive (it’s rumored to come in the next few months), but in Thailand, where it’s assembled, they got a new sporty version called the Almera Sportech.

Designed and developed by Autech Japan, the Almera Sportech gets enhanced styling with new front and rear bumpers, a glossy black front grille, and a sporty rear spoiler. Aside from the Sportech logo on the rear trunk, it also gets silver-colored side mirrors and two-tone 15-inch alloy wheels.



Inside, the Almera Sportech goes for a dominantly black color scheme with dark gray stitching to provide contrast. It also gets dark metallic trim on the side air vents and a piano black decoration on the gear knob and steering wheel spokes.

Mechanically, the Almera Sportech doesn’t get any tweaks. Thus, for the Thai market, it gets a turbocharged HRA0 engine with 100 horsepower and 152 Nm of torque. It also comes equipped with an idling stop function. The sole gearbox is an Xtronic CVT with built-in step logic for smoother gear changes.


It’s currently unknown whether Nissan Philippines will offer a sportier version of the Almera, but it must be remembered that they did offer the Almera with a N-Sport edition way back in 2019.

    1. Agree much. Slow for those models already available abroad. Slow also to cover markets already being served by competitors.
