Anjan Ravi,

I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

No changes to the performance of the engine though.

Nissan has introduced the refreshed Sunny (known as the Nissan Almera) in Malaysia, and along with it, a NISMO version has also been launched.

Nissan Almera NISMO front
The Sunny NISMO gets a full bodykit and uprated springs and dampers.

The changes in the refreshed sedan are identical to the Indian model launched last year: redesigned headlights, a new grille and bumper, new alloy wheels, a new steering wheel, a piano black center console and revised seat trims. The Malaysian model also gets a 6.5-inch touchscreen Android-based navigation system.

All variants are powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine capable of 102 PS (100.56 bhp) and 139 Nm of torque. The gearbox options include a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic unit.

The optional NISMO package on the Sunny adds aggressively designed bumpers with chin spoilers, side skirts, a trunk lid spoiler, 16-inch alloy wheels with 205/50 Continental tyres, a sports exhaust and a revised suspension system.

The NISMO kit can be optionally fitted to any of the variant of the Sunny (Almera).

The NISMO kit (only the visual kit like spoilers, skirts, wheels and bumpers) costs RM 9,000 (INR 1.59 lakhs). With the inclusion of the exhaust and suspension system, the NISMO pack is priced at RM 14,000 (INR 2.48 lakhs).
