Which car is better - nissan almera or renault logan


Nissan Almera has common design solutions with Renault Logan. Both models occupy not only one niche of vehicles (B - compact), but also have similar functional characteristics and prices. Nevertheless, motorists perceive them as two completely different cars, comparing them as competitors. This is also justified, as with each new generation and restyling the differences between Almera and Logan become more and more. In order to find out which car is better, it is necessary to make a detailed comparison.

Description Nissan Almera

Японский автомобиль класса «субкомпакт», который выпускается с 1995 года. Более чем за 20 лет успешного пребывания на рынке Альмера сменил ряд поколений и получил несколько рестайлингов. С 2012 года Ниссан выпускается на российском заводе предприятия АвтоВАЗ. Это поколение является третьим для Альмера — в нём производители постарались угодить российским водителям, сделав автомобиль более оснащённым. В числе прочего это касается и езды в суровых условиях — обновлённый Ниссан готов к суровым зимам и дорогам не лучшего качества. В основе российского Альмера лежит первое поколение Рено Логан, от которого Ниссан позаимствовал салон и ещё несколько важных характеристик.Читать далее о сравнении Nissan Almera с Renault Logan-->

Description Renault Logan

Like the Nissan Almera, this French car belongs to the class of subcompact vehicles. The second, currently relevant generation of the Renault Logan is produced at the same AvtoVAZ plant in Togliatti. At the same time, cars have several common features, including a wheelbase, transmission, a range of engines and a salon.


Given the multiple similarities of the Nissan Almera and Renault Logan, they simply can not be compared with the purchase. They are not only in the same niche in the market (subcompact economy class sedans), but also have a common origin and a number of constructive similarities.


Nissan Almera has three variants of complete sets, which, in turn, are divided into several versions. The cheapest will cost the buyer 540,000 rubles and will have the following equipment:

  • 1.6-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of 102 horsepower;
  • Five-speed manual transmission on the transmission with front-wheel drive;
  • Anti-lock system;
  • Two airbags for the front row of seats;
  • Power steering;
  • Power windows front doors;
  • Ability to customize the steering column.

The initial equipment Nissan Almera has a very modest functionality, which most likely will be missed by most drivers for full operation.

As the cost increases, Almera will acquire the following equipment:

  • Four-speed automatic transmission;
  • Air conditioning;
  • On-board computer;
  • Audio system with support for CD and MP-3;
  • Power steering;
  • Central locking with remote control;
  • Heated mirrors and electronic adjustment;
  • Electric windows;
  • Heated seats;
  • Adjusting the steering column and driver's seat;
  • Alloy wheels;
  • Fog lights;
  • Built-in navigation.

In this case, the engine at the Nissan Almera in more complete sets remains the same. The maximum version costs 667,000 rubles.

The initial equipment Renault Logan will cost 470000 rubles. Its equipment:

  • 1.6-liter petrol engine with 82 horsepower;
  • Front-wheel drive transmission and five-speed manual gearbox%
  • Anti-lock system;
  • Power steering;
  • Driver Airbag.

Minimum equipment Logan has even more modest equipment than the corresponding in Almera. But the car itself costs 70,000 rubles less - this allows you to purchase a car as simple as possible for the least money, for example, in a taxi fleet - Renault Logan is popular in the field of driving.

With an increase in the budget, the buyer gets the following functionality:

  • 1.6-liter petrol engine with a capacity of 102 horsepower (identical stands on Almera);
  • Front-wheel drive transmission with a four-speed automatic transmission;
  • Stabilization system;
  • Two airbags for the front row of seats;
  • Climate control;
  • On-board computer;
  • Audio system with support for CD and MP-3;
  • Power steering;
  • Central locking with remote control;
  • Heated mirrors and electronic adjustment;
  • Electric windows;
  • Heated seats;
  • Adjusting the steering column and driver's seat;
  • Alloy wheels;
  • Fog lights;
  • Built-in passive cruise control;
  • Help system when climbing uphill.

Thus, the top of the range Renault Logan, which costs 720,000 rubles, provides greater comfort and better driving performance in terms of functionality. By paying only 50 thousand rubles for a little, a motorist can get a number of very useful options.

Dimensions Nissan Almera:

  • Length - 4656 mm;
  • Width - 1695 mm;
  • Height - 1522 mm;
  • Clearance - 160 mm;
  • Trunk volume - 500 liters;
  • Fuel tank capacity - 50 liters.

The car has a fairly solid body, which he got from the Bluebird Sylphy - the common predecessor of Almera and Logan. The trunk lid is designed for a European number, the front bumper has been upgraded for off-road driving, and the paintwork has become resistant to corrosion, since in winter, roads are sprinkled with reagents in Russia.

Dimensions Renault Logan:

  • Length - 4346 mm;
  • Width - 1733 mm;
  • Height - 1517 mm;
  • Clearance - 155 mm;
  • Trunk volume - 510 liters;
  • Fuel tank capacity - 50 liters.

Body Logan has similar parameters with Almera. The only thing that catches your eye is the Nissan is longer than more than 30 centimeters. However, the body of the Renault in the past generation was even shorter. The car received a new soundproofing.


Дизайн кузова Ниссан Альмера третьего поколения во многом повторяет Bluebird Sylphy второго поколения. При этом одинаковыми являются только внешние параметры, так как Альмера имеет совершенно иные физические параметры. Пластины в Ниссан более жёсткие, а сам кузов создан по технологии, которая обеспечивает увеличенную защиту тех, кто находится в автомобиле. Appearance Ниссан Альмера 3 напоминает Теана, что вкупе с его длиной создаёт неплохое подобие премиумной машины.

Appearance второго поколения Рено Логан значительно преобразился по сравнению с предшественником. Остались только основные черты, которые по-прежнему придают кузову харизматичности. Новый дизайн отличается большей презентабельностью. Этот факт добавляет конкурентоспособности по сравнению с Ниссан Альмера, а также позволяет выделяться на фоне прочих бюджетных моделей, производители которых экономят на внешнем виде.

Design Renault Logan

The new design of Renault Logan sets it apart from low-end models.


Unlike the bodywork, the Nissan Almera did not adopt the interior of the Bluebird Sylphy - in order to save, manufacturers significantly "cut down" it, installing the cabin from the first generation Logan. Thus, almost completely the interior of Almera corresponds to the old Renault and has a rather inconvenient dashboard and console, a thin steering wheel and non-ergonomic switches. In addition, drivers complain about the seats - they have a short cushion, and the driver gets tired faster because of the hard back.

Nevertheless, Almera has unique features in the interior and ergonomics. So, Nissan has its own mirrors, which are more comfortable than the Logan. High saloon allows you to sit at the ceiling, setting up for this front seats. In this case, the main advantage of the Nissan Almera is the most spacious cabin in the class among sedans. A low transmission tunnel provides ample seating for tall passengers, and the rear row of seats accommodates three adults. Unfortunately, this space is poorly optimized - not even banal coasters.

The design and ergonomics of the new Renault Logan are among the best among all the company's products available in Russia. The entire cabin has smooth features, high-quality plastic and chrome inserts. In such an interior wide functionality looks especially expensive and advantageous. The controls are in convenient places, and the seats are comfortable enough.

The controls of the Renault Logan are quite convenient.

Of course, there are moments that I would also like to see in the new version. For example - the system of turn signals, which "still" can not be blinked in automatic mode. Nevertheless, Renault Logan offers so much for its category.

Road performance

Comparing the dynamics, it should be noted that the best engine of Nissan Almera and the only Renault Logan have identical characteristics. At the same time, Almera has a slightly higher maximum speed (175 km / h, which is 4 more than that of a competitor), and Logan is more dynamic - its acceleration to a hundred in the best configuration takes 11.7 seconds, which is a second more than that of Nissan.

Nissan Almera received a suspension from the Bluebird Sylphy (but the engines of the budget version got the corresponding ones) - its device is identical up to and including disc brakes. And the energy intensity of the transmission has increased, since Almera is designed to move on Russian roads. The springs are stiffer and the moves are longer. In addition, new shock absorbers have more comfortable properties. New, soft suspension has a drawback: when turning the body, Almera may begin to sway. At the same time, a soft stroke ensures a smooth ride over obstacles from speed bumps to potholes in the asphalt - this is also a merit of high energy intensity.

Renault Logan has a choice of two engines. In one of them 8 valves, and in the other 16 - this provides the difference in power (82 and 102 horsepower). And more powerful has a characteristic loud sound when moving. Discomfort while riding the Logan causes a gear shift. The gearshift lever has an overly long handle that forces you to miss the required stage. Also, with a great design, it is completely incomprehensible why the steering wheel and gear lever have a constant background vibration, which does not depend on the speed and revolutions.

In this case, Renault Logan suspension is one of the most reliable and durable in the price and class niche. On a dirt road, the car feels even better than on asphalt - compared to rivals outside of asphalt, Logan drives better than anyone.


When comparing Nissan Almera and Renault Logan, the following conclusion can be made: the “Japanese” has much less advantages over the “Frenchman”, as its equipment and driving performance is slightly weaker, and in relation to the price the offer does not look so profitable. Nevertheless, Almera is still a winning option on the background of any other subcompact, if Logan is discarded.
