What is the Nissan Almera like inside?
The interior of the Almera is a simple affair with logical controls and limited switchgear. This ensures that operation is simple and easy to learn, making it less complex for those that may be overwhelmed by the features of more modern offerings. The cloth upholstery is durable and hard-wearing and most surfaces are pleasant to the touch.
Never one that was lauded for its design, the Almera takes the traditional three-box design approach and rounds off the corners for a more fluid overall shape. Large headlights and a deep V-shaped grille characterise the front end while the rear combination lamps mimic the design of the headlights.
