After revitalizing its all-important lineup of SUVs and crossovers, Nissan's next task is to do the same with its average family cars. While in America, the company has revitalized every sedan from the subcompact to the Maxima, over in Europe there's no replacement for the old Almera.
That's where these latest photos come into play, revealing a brand new hatchback that Nissan is reportedly developing in order to take on Europe's best sellers, the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus.

It's a five-door hatchback that will enter production with Nissan's factory in Sunderland, Great Britain, where it will be built alongside the new Qashqai and Juke facelift.

The manufacturer is placing a strong emphasis on technology rather than power and driving enjoyment. This new hatch, which we think is going to be called the Almera, is loosely based on the Pulsar hatch currently sold in Australia, but will have new styling similar to the Qashqai. The latest gadgets will be used to make this one of the best equipped cars on the market, including full-length panoramic sunroofs, self-parking system and low-cost satellite navigation.

All engines should come from the existing Nissan models, including a new 1.2 DIG-T turbo with 120 PS and at least two version of the 1.5 dCi diesel.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
