The Nissan Almera is closer to its official launch now, and the Nissan Malaysia Facebook page has just posted up this image of a bodykitted Almera with the caption “Coming up… Exclusive preview for Nissan Malaysia Facebook Fans”. Perhaps a “sporty” version will be offered when the car is officially revealed?

The bodykit in the sketch shows a new grille with the Impul logo, front bumper extension, side skirts, rear skirt with diffuser-style element and a spoiler on the boot.

As a recap, the Malaysian-assembled Almera will debut in 1.5 litre form, the DOHC and CVTC equipped four-pot making 102 PS and 139 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. It’s mated to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic gearbox. We know of three trim levels for now – E, V and VL.

Full details and more Almera reading can be had here (official ETCM preview) and here (a short drive at Tan Chong’s Serendah test track).

UPDATE: We now have more details on the Impul bodykit. The Impul front grille goes for RM800, while the Impul Aerokit consisting of front and rear bumper spoilers, side skirts and a rear wing spoiler will cost you RM3,000 inclusive of installation and painting.

That’s not all that’s available from Impul – the Impul Blast 2 Exhaust Muffler for the Almera is priced at RM1,800, and an Impul sport suspension that lowers the vehicle by 25mm will cost you RM2,800.

Two different alloy wheels are available – the 16 inch HS-06 in matte silver and black for RM4,000 and 17 inch SX-20 in black and polish finish for RM4,600.
