    Hi,
    The 112bhp 2.2-litre dCi diesel unit replaces the old direct injection diesel engine which was still a pretty good engine in its own right and adds a little more smoothness, power and economy. Its a very efficient engine, returning around 50mpg in normal use, and thanks to the large 2.2-litre capacity, decently powerful too.

    Rest to 60 occupies a reasonable 111.2s on the way to a maximum of 118mph. The 2.2-litre 136bhp dCi engine feels a good deal stronger, the additional verve being particularly apparent in the mid range.

    To give you an idea of how muscular it feels, its torque figure of 224/lb ft isnt far removed from a Ford RS Focus. Thus equipped, an Almera SXE dCi will accelerate to 60mph in nine seconds flat yet will still return an average fuel consumption figure that knocks on the door of 48mpg. We focus on the three and five-door hatchback body styles here, but a mini-MPV called the Almera Tino is also available if you want something more versatile. Not that the standard hatchback lacks much in this department.

    Thanks to a host of clever interior touches, no other rival in the Ford Focus/Vauxhall Astra class is easier to live with than the latest Almera. And thanks to the chassis excellence carried over from the original model, it remains, even in heavy diesel form, one of the best cars in its class to drive. Prices are super-competitive of course (from £12,650 to £15,650 for diesel buyers), as are equipment levels. Almera dCi buyers choose from three trim grades Flare, SE and SVE.

    All come with air conditioning, central locking, electric front windows, twin front airbags, illuminated vanity mirrors, a head restraint plus three-point seat belt for the centre rear passenger, a four-speaker RDS radio-cassette with remote controls, a pollen filter, front and rear cup holders, a boot-mounted accessory power socket and an engine immobiliser. The SVE now features satellite navigation as standard. The SXE trim level, available for 2.2-litre dCi buyers also adds refinements such as electronic stability control and a subtle spoiler kit.

    Whichever version you opt for, youll find the Almera has moved up a class, with a quality feel reminiscent of something much more expensive. That probably won't be what you remember however, after the salesperson guides you round the 'super utility' interior which is filled with clever touches. Not all of them are new, but the way they're executed is better than anything family buyers have seen to date. The shape's practical too, with plenty of headroom and decent space for three across a comfortable back seat that split-folds to reveal 355 litres of space (25 litres more than a VW Golf). In the front, provided you specify the optional side airbags, the seats can be fitted with Active Head Restraints that reduce whiplash injury if you're hit from the rear. Which is a possibility, for the braking performance has been much improved thanks to a 'Brake Assist' system that reduces the pedal effort required to activate ABS by around 30% in an emergency. In summary, the latest Almera diesel is well worth checking out. If your budget permits, the latest dCi engine is well worth the additional funds, being both refined and agreeably rapid. Perhaps in due course Nissan will offer it in more affordable guises, but until then, you wont feel short changed by the 2.
