Nissan distributor Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has introduced the Nissan Almera Black Series in Malaysia. The second model to receive the Black Series treatment after the NP300 Navara, the B-segment sedan gets a aerokit designed by Japanese tuner Tomei, as well as extra equipment for no extra cost.

This means that the Black Series, offered in 1.5E and 1.5VL Auto variants, are priced exactly the same as the standard models at RM69,800 and RM79,800 respectively, on-the-road without insurance. Included in the list price is a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, plus a three-year/150,000 km warranty for all the accessories.

These accessories include the aforementioned Tomei aerokit, consisting of an aggressive front spoiler, side skirts and rear diffuser, all finished with Dark Titanium accents. Meanwhile, the existing front grille, door mirror covers and 15-inch Y-spoke alloy wheels have been painted gloss black, as has the new rear spoiler.

On the inside, buyers are treated to leather seats with the same Dark Titanium highlights as the exterior, plus a Clarion Advanced Display Audio infotainment system with a 6.75-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and a reverse camera. Also fitted is a wide-angle Driving Video Recorder dashcam as well as Solar Gard window tint film.

All these go on top of the Almera’s standard equipment, which includes halogen reflector headlights, LED daytime running lights, door mirror indicators, a driver’s airbag and ABS with EBD and brake assist. The VL adds front fog lights, keyless entry, automatic air-conditioning, a multifunction steering wheel, a Fine Vision instrument cluster and dual airbags.

The mechanicals remain unchanged, so the Black Series gets the same 1.5 litre HR15DE four-cylinder petrol engine, sending 102 PS and 139 Nm of torque to the front wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission. The car will be shown at the upcoming Nissan Nationwide Test Drive Carnival in selected showrooms over two weekends, on November 9 to 11 and November 17 to 18 from 10 am to 8 pm.
