What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It’s well priced and reliable with a good safety record

Against Space is poor, and it's slow, uncomfortable and disappointing to drive

Verdict Solid, reliable and cheap, but with a staid image

Go for… 1.5 petrol

Avoid… 1.8 petrol

Nissan Almera Hatchback
  • 1. Nissan cars, like most Japanese models, have a well earned reputation for reliability
  • 2. After the 2002 face-lift all cars had air-con, remote central locking and a CD player
  • 3. The Almera is cramped by class standards, particularly in the rear, but the boot is a decent size
  • 4. The handling is reasonable, but the ride is uncomfortable on rough surfaces
  • 5. Low desirability means low prices - there are some real bargains out there
