Designed to preview a production model that will be introduced later this year, the Almera concept features an aerodynamic body kit with a front lip spoiler, revised side skirts, a rear diffuser and a trunk-mounted spoiler. The car is also equipped with a sports suspension, a Nismo exhaust and 17-inch alloy wheels. Despite being aimed at enthusiasts, the model is reportedly powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 102 HP (75 kW) and 139 Nm (102 lb-ft) of torque.
The price in Ringgit Malaysia was seen set at about RM79,000 without insurance. So speculation is that it will cost about RM85k-90k on-the-road when launched here in Malaysia.
