Recently India’s best car modifier, DC Design customized the Nissan Sunny’s interior and now in Malaysia, Nissan has unveiled its Almera saloon (Sunny in India) with the Nismo performance package at the Super GT International Series Malaysia 2013 in Sepang. NISMO is the motorsport division of Nissan and the performance package for Almera includes exterior body kit and suspension tune-up to improve the dynamics of the vehicle and to make the Sunny looks beefy.
The prominent upgrades on the Almera’s exterior are the wide body skirts and the thin streaky decals above the chrome door handles. The front and the rear bumpers clad the extensions with carbon fiber finish and thin blood red line on both sides. Nismo installed larger tyres with dual tone alloy wheels. The race inspired suspension setup has brought down the ground clearance of the model. At the rear, the black aerodynamic sports type spoiler on the boot, diffuser at the rear bumper and the Nismo performance exhaust growls quit a bit and flaunts the style of a street race car that is ready to boost adrenalin rush within a blink of an eye.
The roof and the ORVMs of the Nismo tuned Nissan Sunny also gets carbon fibre finish with the Nismo badge at the boot. The Almera’s engine doesn’t get any performance upgrades but the tuned-up suspension and the aerodynamic body kits have improved the driving dynamics of the Nismo Almera. The 1.5-litre K9K series diesel engine that has been featured in all the Nissan products in India produces 100 BHP on the Almera.
The complete exterior mods add brutality to the blunt design of the Nissan Sunny, although the Nismo Almera is just one of its type and the performance package is not available for retail sale but is expected to be launched in the future.
