NISSAN ALMERA OR RENAULT LOGAN?

As you know, after the merger of Renault and Nissan in the same group, many cars are duplicated in both brands under different names and, of course, with their own specifics. One example is a pair of Nissan Almera and Renault Logan. This is a budget city sedans, which are in great demand among the Russians. Cars have a common origin, very similar inside and out. However, if you look at the prices and configuration of the Nissan Almera, then you can see that the Japanese model is slightly more expensive than the French counterpart. To understand how justified the difference in price, will allow a small comparison of these cars.

TECHNICAL PART
Nissan Almera and Renault Logan are built on a common platform B0, which became the basis for a number of joint models of Renault-Nissan. Both cars are equipped with a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of 102 horsepower, which can be equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic transmission. In the configuration with the “mechanics” the motor consumes 7.2 liters of fuel per 100 km in the combined cycle. In versions with automatic transmission, fuel consumption is slightly higher at 8.5 liters per 100 km. Acceleration to 100 km per hour is achieved in almost 11 seconds.

The suspension of both models is perfectly adapted to Russian conditions. Clearance of 160 mm in combination with the lower enhanced protection of the engine compartment allow them to move confidently, even on bad roads. Compared with the French rival, Almera has an extended wheelbase. Due to this, a much higher smoothness is achieved. The car show excellent stability and better handling, thanks to a smaller redistribution of mass during cornering. In addition, Japanese engineers were able to provide the best directional stability of the machine when braking.

DESIGN AND SALON
More spectacular and stylish design is an obvious advantage of the Nissan Almera. Japanese sedan has similarities with higher-end models, which significantly increases its attractiveness to buyers. It is distinguished by the brand grille and large headlights of a special form, as well as trapezoidal air intakes.

The interior of both cars is almost the same and fully corresponds to the budget class. However, here Almera has some advantages. So, the obvious advantage is a more spacious and comfortable rear row of seats. This is facilitated by a very low central tunnel and a slightly increased salon space width. Also, the interior of the Japanese model is generally higher, which makes a more comfortable fit in the front seats. It is worth noting a more convenient design of mirrors.

One of the most important advantages of the Nissan Almera 2018 is the availability of a functional multimedia and navigation system Nissan Connect with a large touch screen, available in Tekna configuration.

CONCLUSION
In the considered pair, you can give a slight preference to the Nissan Almera car. Japanese has a better driving performance and is more comfortable, and also offers owners a higher functionality. The major plus in comparison with the competitor, is its effective and expensive design for the budget class.
