The Nissan Almera Tino is a compact MPV which was produced by the Japanese automaker Nissan between 1998 and 2006 in Japan as the Nissan Tino. The Spanish factory produced the Almera TIno between 2000 and 2006.


The Almera Tino was based on floorpan of the Almera small family car, which had been launched in early 2000, and launched in Europe in the autumn of that year and sold until late 2006, ceasing production in the November of that year – the same time that the Almera hatchback and saloon were axed. The car was known as simply Tino in Japan, and was sold between 1998 and 2001 only.

In the Tino range there are three engines available:

  • 1.8 L petrol
  • 2.0 L petrol
  • 2.2 L diesel


Like most Nissan's the Tino was credited for its equipment levels and even basic models get climate control, electric sunroof and front electric windows. In 2003 the Tino had a few updates including new steering wheel and new dials whilst on the outside the front indicators had clear plastic instead of orange, and the engines were revised.
