Almera In SXE Shock | Part Two

Four versions of the SXE are available: three and five door, both with the option of 1.8-litre petrol or 2.2 dCi 136 engine. Prices start from £13,250 for the 1.8 three-door, rising to £14,000 for the five-door; the three-door 136 dCi is £14,500 and the five-door is £15,250.

Here’s a recap of what you get on the SXE:

  • Driver’s, passenger and side airbags
  • Active front headrests
  • Anti-lock brakes with brake assist and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
  • Option of 2.2 dCi 136 diesel engine with 6-speed manual gearbox
  • Electronic stability programme (ESP)
  • 7" full colour centre display monitor with DVD satellite navigation
  • Trip computer

Almera SVE gets standard sat nav, too

Not to be left out, the just-demoted from top of range SVE also gets DVD satellite navigation. Unless you know otherwise, there’s only one other car in the Almera’s class to offer Europe-wide DVD sat nav as standard … and that’s the Almera SXE. Using a similar 3D Birdview™ system to the one found in the Primera, information on 10 European countries are held on one disc, thanks to the increased capacity of DVD technology. And to clearly show all navigation information, the N-FORM display screen has been enlarged to a 7" full colour version. Prices of the SVE models will increase by £900, which is a bargain considering that some rivals are asking up to £2500 for a colour sat nav system.

There are eight versions of the SVE available, including 1.5, 1.8 manual or automatic and the 2.2 Di diesel engine, all of which share the same standard equipment. Prices start from £12,250 for the 1.5-litre three-door rising to £14,650 for the 2.2 Di five-door.

All Almera SVEs come with the following:
  • Driver’s, passenger and side airbags
  • Active front headrests
  • Anti-lock brakes with brake assist and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
  • 7" full colour centre display monitor with DVD satellite navigation
  • Trip computer
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Rear electric windows – four and five-door only
  • Electronic climate control air conditioning
  • Electric body coloured door mirrors
