The Nissan Almera is a small family car range that was introduced into the market in 1995. The range was a replacement for the Nissan Sunny (N14) and was a steady seller until it was discontinued in 2006. The range was given a significant improvement in 2000 with an updated style and more modern interior. This update included European styling which attracted a bigger UK buyer bracket, as well as a confident design that brought a sense of maturity to the vehicle. Also, the practical shape of the range allowed for a comfortable interior which allowed for a quality feel. Along with great petrol options, the range comes with a 2.2 litre dCi diesel engine that offers multiple power outputs. The diesel motor delivers a good drive for the driver to enjoy, as well as superb handling. In all, the Nissan Almera is a reliable range that is cleverly designed, perfect for a small family.
