The All-New Nissan Almera Redefines Practicality And Reliable Daily Mobility

Ironically, when there seems to be no end to your to-do list, there also seems to be less time available to get everything done. With the country — and the rest of the world, for that matter — lifting its borders and easing restrictions, there is a lot of catching up to do. We’re talking about the little things, which include the day-to-day routine and errands that have either been put on hold or even forgotten in the past couple of years. Suddenly, opportunities abound and there is much to take care of.

For young professionals and career-driven individuals, work has slowly returned to its natural rhythm, whether it’s back to a face-to-face workplace set-up or still on a stay-at-home arrangement. Regardless, life is again busier and we are left with the weekend to sort out our personal errands and endeavors. This is the reason why independent and driven go-getters require the right tools that can keep up and empower. From their mobile devices, equipment, and most importantly, the one thing necessary for reliable mobility — their car.

When we speak of reliability, we are not only considering how well-made a vehicle is. Rather, to a regular motorist, a daily driver must not only fit the aesthetic bill, but it should also be the most practical there is to complement the lifestyle of the owner. This is how the 2022 Nissan Almera aims to fit that particular mold: by introducing another level of style, tech, and efficiency into the subcompact sedan segment.

By looks alone, the All-New Nissan Almera has been long-awaited as exactly the kind of revamp that the Almera badge needed. Nissan has raised the bar with a visually lengthier vehicle with a longer sloping hood, a prouder, more imposing front-face, sporty 16-inch alloy wheels, and intentionally classier colorways that deserve a second look. By all accounts, a stunning reboot that an owner, male or female, would be proud of, and by-passers would be impressed by.

Translating this design aspect into the interior, owners of the Nissan Almera can expect the same sporty feel as with the exterior. The flat-bottomed leather steering wheel with controls is retro-inspired, immediately giving the space a race-ready look. Finishing off the vintage vibe are rotator a/c vents on either ends of the dash, as well as turn-knobs for climate control. The luxe factor comes in across the entire cabin, particularly with the leather, two-toned seats for both the front row and the rear bench. The grey and muted-beige combination offers a simple, classy vibe that will outlast any current trend.

At the center of the space is the 8-inch Nissan advanced touchscreen display audio system with Apple CarPlay as built-in standard features. This is perfect for the modern tech-savvy motorist in having hands-free access to necessary mobile apps, plus a full navigation view. Coupled with the Nissan Intelligent Mobility tech, which includes a 360-view camera called Intelligent Around View Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, and Intelligent Emergency Braking—driving has never been safer or more connected.

Again, style is one thing, but practicality is another. The All-New Nissan Almera boasts of generous cabin space, legroom, and a cargo hold to befit any kind of activity. For a family or barkada trip, you can expect to seat at least 4 full-grown average-sized adults. For your weekend chores or errands, imagine the rear bench being able to accommodate a medium-sized dog, such as an adorable beagle. There are also numerous cup-holders and storage spaces within the vehicle that can keep essentials and cable-clutter out of the way, making your journey more organized and thus, giving you clearer headspace.

The cargo hold is a plus for the Almera. While it is decidedly a subcompact sedan, the trunk is cavernous and deep, able to accommodate at least a week’s worth of groceries for an entire household, including bulky items like packs of toilet paper and crates of canned goods. With this, for those bitten by the travel bug, you can expect to fit 2 medium-sized luggage and 1 carry-on roller bag.

If you’re not convinced yet, the most impressive factor for the all-new Nissan Almera is how fuel efficient it has become. With gas prices on an all-time high, a car that isn’t a guzzler and can offer just the right performance is practically a must-have, especially if the daily grind requires long commuting hours. The Almera runs on a 1.0-liter turbocharged engine giving you exceptional power and unparalleled performance. Acceleration is responsive and smooth, and without hesitation. It also features light suspension and an ample wheelbase that allows the car to glide over bumps and traffic humps without the staggering bounce.

The Nissan Almera is incredibly fuel efficient. At its current level and with the performance it offers, it can travel for up to 23.3-kilometers per liter of gas, making it one of the most practical subcompact sedans to own. It is also packaged with a 5-year warranty, with twice-a-year PMS schedule.

Speaking of practicality in itself is overrated these days. More than monetary savings, the right vehicle has to fit you and your lifestyle for it to be defined as reliable. The All-New 2022 Nissan Almera ticks all the boxes as the perfect daily mobility partner as it challenges the definition of practicality. It offers a car that has leveled-up with all the right features and can keep up with the demands of the daily grind.
