The new Nissan Almera Nismo Performance Package was given a global preview at last Sunday’s 2013 Super GT Round 3 taking place at Sepang International Circuit. Working together with Nissan Motorsports International Co. Ltd., this is a special milestone for Malaysia’s Nissan dealer Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn. Bhd.
Giving the family sedan a dash of sportiness from their own in-house motorsports tuning division, the Almera Nismo Performance Package will soon be available to car enthusiasts in Malaysia as it is scheduled to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2013. The Almera Nismo features an aerodynamic design specifically optimized for the Almera, coupled with enhanced handling characteristics and agility for a more dynamic driving experience.
The Almera Nismo also gets a couple of goodies on the outside to enhance its presence. Fitted to the car are front and rear bumper spoilers, side skirts, rear spoiler and a set of 17-inch alloy wheels. Sports suspension gives the Almera Nismo a comfortable and stable handling while a sporty sound is blessed through the Nismo Exhaust Muffler.
Under the hood, the car packs 102-horsepower and 139Nm of torque from a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. It also comes with Electric Power Steering, Anti-lock Braking System, Braking Assist and Electronic Brake Distribution. While the car is set to arrive in Malaysia soon, there is no word on the pricing for the time being.
