Nissan launched its new Almera sedan at the Moscow Motor Show this week.
The vehicle is a new offering from the Japanese manufacturer but will be specifically built for the Russian region and has been built 'to meet the unique demands of the Russian market.'
The new Almera features 160mm of ground clearance, special anti-corrosion treatment for the chrome highlights to withstands the chemicals used to de-ice Russian roads and added protection for the underbody and engine bay.
The car will be powered by one of its tried and trusted 1.6-litre, 16-valve petrol engine developing 75kW (102hp) and 145 Nm of torque. The Almera will be available with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission.
The vehicle will also be available in three trim levels: Welcome, Comfort and top-of-the-range Tekna.
Nissan has not indicated that the Almera will be rolled out to other parts of the world.
