Adding the All-New Nissan Navara to the New Nissan X-trail and Nissan Almera is a game-changer in the automotive sector in Malaysia. As the Almera takes Toyota Vios and Honda City heads on, the Navara received a mega facelift to muscle Toyota Hilux and Ford ranger.
Every automaker has a long lineup of new cars and trucks. What distinguishes these new Nissan models from the growing crowd? Obviously, all 2020 – 2021 releases have the most advanced systems and equipment to give the models a hard drive and offer maximum safety.
Between the Navara, X-trail, and Almera, which one would you buy?
The All-New Nissan Almera features an impressive exterior with every crease, line and curve design to give Nissan’s emotional imagery. If you think it’s only the diffuser fog lights will fascinate you, then you are wrong. Look at the Boomerang shaped headlamps, front grille and the v-shaped silver plate garnishing the grille.
To feel the touch of the nicely crafted interior, get into the cockpit. The dual-tone dashboard and the semi sports seats laced with grey accents perfectly match the entire interior lining. Its 8-inch touchscreen display features an audio system with 6 speakers connected to Apple CarPlay.
Toyota Almera is moved by a 1.0L 3-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 152NM of torque and 100ps that mated to a CVT gearbox.
Unluckily, the Nissan X-Trail falls under the most competitive C-segment and the SUV category. Manufactured to rival the likes of Mitsubishi Expander, Subaru Forester and Mazda CX-5, the new X-Trail is pumped with lots of advanced technologies and components.
Standing on 18-inch black alloy wheels, this SUV has a bold and rigid body to suits your family adventure needs. The NissanConnect technology seamlessly integrates with smartphones and gives access to mobile phones, thus keeping you connected to social networks.
With assistance from Nissan Intelligent Mobility and Advanced Drive-Assist Systems, driving this SUV is safer to drive than before. From the two engine options, the 2.0L engine is connected to a hybrid system to produce a combined power of 360 Nm and 185ps.
If you think of owning a pickup, think of Nissan Navara. Despite not being a passenger car, it’s fully equipped with modern safety features. The VL Plus model has 7 airbags, Active Brake Limited Slip and Intelligent Around View Monitor.
Even though the exterior shows an aggressive pickup truck, the interior tells another story of unexpected luxury. The leather seats with 8-way adjustable capacity keep relaxed through the journey. Its state-of-the-art 5-inch infotainment display will keep you entertained.
The Nissan Navara’s masculinity is revealed by the engine’s power rating. Navara’s CV Plus 2.5L YD25DDTi 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine produces 450 Nm and 187ps.
Nissan is still fighting for the top positions in different segments in Malaysia. The Nissan Almera is seemingly struggling, but with Nissan Navara, some of its competitors may not measure up to the game. With the adoption of new technologies, the All-New Nissan X-Trail and the Navara are the best in the Nissan family.
