For a first look of its performance, watch a quick review by Eu Jin of Autobuzz.my:
What is a turbocharger? It’s a device that forced compressed air into the engine to create more power and torque. Watch a 60 seconds video below on how a turbocharger works.
The Almera turbocharger is equipped with an Electronic Wastegate which diverts excess exhaust gasses to regulate the turbine speed and thus boost engine efficiency.
The new Almera features Mirror Bore Coating Technology, adopted from the Nissan GT-R. Mirror Bore Coating Technology is a thin and very smooth coating layer on the engine cylinders’ surfaces. It reduces friction and results in good fuel saving.
The turbo engine is paired with an X-tronic CVT transmission with D-Step Logic and Sport Mode. The D-Step logic is a software that gives a gear-shifting sensation to the driver for a more sporty drive. The Sport Mode allows for better acceleration.
