Nissan launches Terrano

Nissan Terrano

Nissan India announced today that pre-bookings of the Terrano would commence on the 1st of September, and that its starting price would undercut 10 lakh rupees. The Terrano is a key model in boosting sales of the Japanese brand and very importantly marks its entry into the compact SUV segment.

Though based on the Duster, Nissan has changed a lot in the Terrano.

The Terrano nameplate isn’t a fresh face as it has been around since 1986 through three generations. 

The design heritage of the fourth generation comes from established models such as the Patrol and Pathfinder. Though the car is based on the Duster platform, Nissan have redone the exterior with newly cast plastic and sheet metal components.

Nissan say they have made design references to the Pathfinder and Patrol on the Terrano’s exterior.

Nissan say that the front-end highlights the company’s ‘V-Motion’ design signature and the headlamps follow a four-pod design. The muscular fenders and sharp creases on the side of the car are inherited from the Duster. The wheels are new 16-inch chrome-coated pieces. Out at the rear, the taillights have been designed to make the car distinctively different from competitors.

The Terrano will reach dealer showrooms shortly. Bookings open on the 1st of September.

Colored roof rails, silver-finished skid plates and a chrome embellished band at the rear set the Terrano completely apart from the Duster.

Chrome aircon vents, light beige color and steering wheel are new.

The interior has more in common with the Duster but differences are plenty. The two-tone dashboard gets aircon vents with chrome surrounds, and a glossy piano black center console. The door handles meanwhile feature dark faux wood inserts. The interior is presented in a light-colored beige.
