I don't think so. The new Almera is the N15 and the new Sentra is the B15. The new N15 only comes with a 1.5 liter or the 1.8 liter. Also a 2.0/2.2 liter diesel engine is available depending on where you live. No SR20DE though. If anything it's closer to the new Primera, as they share the same front end. But thats it. I think Nissan took a few good points of other cars and put them in the Almera.

Yeah, I tought they would, the ones they sell here(Costa Rica) come with the QG16DE and the QG18DE, like the 2002 Sentra, also they have the Multi-Link suspension, gear ratios look the same ...anyway, hopefully I can find a lowering spring kit for this car

Keith,

The new Almera is N16.

N15 Almeras were sold in Europe from 1995 to 2000-1.

New Primera is P12. Different platforms.

N16 is very close to B15. Excluding external bodypats most everything from a N16 should fit a B15.

I actually thought the B15 and the Sunny were the same but not the Almera. According to Freshalloy.com they are, but they never mention the Almera.

Both the Almera and B15 Sentra come with 1.8 liter engines, but the europe cars are different then Japanes & US Spec cars.

"Instead of direct-injection, European 1.8 gets a simple variable-valve timing at the intake valves to boost flexibility. That results in a peak torque of 117 lbft occurring from 2,400 rpm continuously to 4,800 rpm. Power, on the other hand, is as modest as 114 hp. Worst of all, this is already the range-topping engine for Almera - no 143 hp GTi anymore; no any 2-litre engine up to this moment. I think the Almera deserve at least Sentra’s 1.8, which received higher state of tune, hence 126 hp and 129 lbft. It would have been even better if it gets Sentra SE’s 145 hp 2-litre engine with dual variable-volume exhaust. "

Do you have any links to other sites that have information about the Almera? Any clubs or forums?

The company is called Giacuzzo , I think it's in Germany. they sell aftermarket stuff for Nissan, Honda, Renault and Mitsubishi. I guess it will help you more since you're already in Europe :)
