Nissan’s Almera has just become the best selling imported car in Russia, selling more than 5600 since the beginning of the year. And it’s not doing too badly in the UK either. Retail sales of the Almera have increased by nearly a third while overall sales for the segment have increased by just 3 per cent over the same period in 2003.
Most of this increase, 85% in fact, is from sales of the Almera SE Extras. First introduced in January 2004, the Extras pack offers 16-inch alloy wheels plus a customer saving of £1405 to the standard SE model. For September, the Extras pack, which is still available on the 1.5-litre model, now adds front fog lamps, worth £185, at no extra cost keeping the price of the SE Extras at just £9995.
Nissan has also enhanced the spec of the top of the range SXE model, which is available with both 1.8-litre petrol and 2.2dCi engines. Both gain an electric sunroof and rear parking sensors, which make parking your Almera more of a miss than a hit affair. Worth £675, the 1.8-litre model gains the additional specification in lieu of ESP (electronic stability programme) whilst the 2.2dCi, which retains ESP, goes up in price by just £200.
