Boustead Sdn Bhd held a prize presentation for Nissan Almera owners who joined the five days and four nights Almera Eco 2000 Drive Challenge to Kuching, Sarawak from 4th December till 8th December 2014 that was held yesterday at the Nissan Showroom, Beribi, Gadong.

Prior to the prize presentation, Executive Manager of Boustead Sdn Bhd, Mr. Lim Jin Lee made a short opening speech, and then followed by the prize presentation conducted by the Sales Manager, Mr. Tan Teck Hock to the grand winner, in the presence of media journalists as well as Nissan's valuable customers.

Of the ten participating cars, Zuraimi Bin Zulkifli locked in the best fuel consumption with just 18.37km/litre and won the grand prize of B$2,000.00 during the prize presentation ceremony. Nissan Brunei Facebook competition was won by Masita Binti Hj. Yaakub who received '49 Likes' with prize money of RM$150.00.

The fuel efficiency of Nissan Almera had been tested and proven after actual driving along the trip that was fulfilled by a group of Nissan Almera owners in a recent eco drive to Kuching. Out of the ten Nissan Almera joining this Eco 2000 Drive Challenge, the best achieved fuel consumption was a staggering 18.37km per litre, which is a remarkable record considering each car had three people on board, plus luggage and other equipments in the boot. The average for all ten cars were 16.34km per litre, which is beyond the quoted 14.9km per litre.

At the eco drive between 80 to 110km/h along the trip, all ten cars driven through some scenic and winding rural roads, even the cars going through most overtaking situations and uphill obstacles. All ten cars manage themselves without any fuss by avoiding over acceleration that will be threatened to worsen the fuel consumption figures. Thanks to HR15DE engine that spins pretty freely and reach quickly, gear changes are leisurely at best that delivers heightened engine performance.

Stretched in size, stuffed with features, Almera's roomy interior exemplifies a contemporary living room that has plenty of space for everyone to stretch and relax. There's enough room for that, you bet. Surprisingly, its class-leading rear seat roominess is beyond your expectation whereby the knee room of 636mm wide offers enough trunk space for the rear passengers, creating comfort riding especially when travelling long distances.

Widely acclaimed for its quality, space and comfortable ride, Nissan Almera offers uncompromising upscale feeling, versatility and refinement that definitely a pleasure to own. These provide a touch of classiness and smart feeling to the driver and passengers alike. Each element has been evolved to deliver a powerful presence and the inspiration of another breakthrough achievement in its class.

Being built with a reputation of an "affordable dynamic sedan", Almera is well-designed yet functional sedan suitable for people from all walks of life - "It is not a tuxedo or a dress, but is most likely the suit you wear every day" as cited by the Nissan chief product specialists.
