How Safe is the All-New Nissan Almera Turbo?

nissan almera safety

The 2020 Nissan Almera Turbo was without a doubt, one of the most anticipated car launches of the year simply because it is leaps and bounds ahead of the outgoing model, but is it safe?

Not only does it look handsome, but it is fuel efficient, spacious, practical, and technologically advanced as well. Speaking of technology, Nissan has paid extra attention to two areas in particular – safety and driver assistance.

So, in case you’re wondering if the new Nissan Almera is a safe car, let’s look at what it has to offer.

Standard on all three Nissan Almera Turbo variants are the Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (IFCW) and Intelligent Forward Emergency Braking (IFEB) systems. The Intelligent Forward Collision Warning monitors vehicle distance and speed between 5km/h to 80km/h, and alerts driver when the vehicle is too close to a vehicle ahead or a risk from frontal collision by flashing a warning with audible alert on the 7-inch Advance Drive Assist Display (ADAD).

If the driver does not take any action, the Intelligent Forward Emergency Braking system will indicate an emergency stop sign and automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a frontal collision or lessen the severity of an impact. The vehicle will remain at a standstill for approximately 2 seconds before the brakes are released.

Other safety technologies available on the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo are the Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) systems. At a driving speed approximately 32km/h and above, the Blind Spot Warning system helps keep an eye on blind spot areas at approximately 3 meters x 3 meters via radar sensors at the rear bumper, and alerts the driver of other vehicles in adjacent lanes when changing lanes.

If the radar sensors detect a vehicle in the detection zone or blind spot area when the turn signal is activated, the system will chime twice and warning indicators on the ADAD and the side mirror surface will illuminate.

Additionally, the Rear Cross Traffic Alert system operates while the vehicle is reversing at speed less than 8km/h. The same rear radar sensors help to detect an approaching vehicle below 30km/h driving speed and warn the driver with an audible alert and indicator on the side mirror surface where the vehicle is approaching from.

The highly appreciated Intelligent Around View Monitor (IAVM) with Intelligent Moving Object Detection (IMOD) system that is featured on the Nissan X-Trail, Serena S-Hybrid and Navara, is now available on the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo too.

Perfect during parking and manoeuvring tight spots, the Intelligent Around View Monitor system uses 4 cameras that provide a virtual 360° bird’s-eye view of the vehicle, while the Intelligent Moving Object Detection helps to detect and alert the driver of moving objects surrounding the vehicle.

The all-new Nissan Almera Turbo is also packed with other various safety technologies that are always looking out for you by monitoring, responding and protecting you and your passengers, including:

  • Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control (TC)
  • Hill Start Assist (HSA)
  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Brake Assist (BA)
  • Electronic Braking Distribution (EBD)
  • 6 SRS Airbags (available on VLP and VLT variants only)
  • ISOFIX with Top Tether (x2) Child Seat Restraint system

A 5-year unlimited mileage vehicle warranty comes standard on all Nissan Almera Turbo variants, along with free 5 times alternating maintenance service (parts and labour included) within 5 years.

To recap, the All-New Nissan Almera Turbo is offered in three variants:

  • VL variant:     RM 79,906
  • VLP variant:   RM 85,715
  • VLT variant:   RM 91,310
