Nissan Terrano Overview

Christened as Nissan Jid?sha Kabushiki-gaisha and abridged as Nissan, the Nissan Motor Company Limited is a Japanese multinational automaker headquartered in Nishi-ku, Yokohama, Japan. Widely known as simply Nissan, it is an automobile manufacturer that has captivated the auto market with its enticing fleet of cars. Nissan continues its quest to optimize product development and deliver highly innovative technology. Nissan enjoys a stellar reputation across the globe for creating truly innovative vehicles and service programs. That apart, Nissan seeks to give back to the society in a truly innovative style. It contributes to sustainable social development through all its global activities. Nissan’s goal is to provide unique and innovative automotive products and services that deliver superior values to all stakeholders. Blue Citizenship is Nissan’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative.
Nissan Terrano Overview
Nissan Terrano is a smart and practical compact Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) that owes its origin to its French cousin, the Renault Duster. But visually, there are many points of distinction. Barring the rear fender and the roof, none of Terrano’s body panels are identical to those of the Duster. It stays true to its Nissan DNA by a generous display of chrome on the grille and trapezoid chrome strips on either side of a bold Nissan logo. The other notable differences prima facie are the aluminium-brushed door handles, roof rails and the large tail lamp cluster which fleshes up the rear much more than that of the Duster. The fender at the back is a feature that both share and this coupled with the flared wheel arches gives it a domineering SUV appeal. Nissan Terrano Overview
The creases on the bonnet start from the front grille, which also has a silver bash-plate on the other side adding to the overall masculine look. Its design is quite similar to that of the new X-Trail and Pathfinder. Nissan Terrano has entered one of the fastest growing automobile segments with not only impeccable looks and features, but also with one of the most dependable platforms. Terrano is available in both Petrol and Diesel versions. There are 6 colours available in all variants of Nissan Terrano – Pearl White, Sapphire Black, Bronze Grey, Fire Red, Sterling Grey and Blade Silver.

Nissan Terrano Exterior

Dimensionally, Nissan Terrano measures 4.33m in length with a width of 1.83m. Its overall height with the fixed roof rail is 1.67m. The wheelbase of 2.67m adds more to the interior spacing which is already abundant given its incredible height. Nissan Terrano has a ground clearance of 205mm, which is similar to that of Renault Duster, but is an add-on advantage that will keep this SUV going easily on any terrain.
Nissan Terrano Exterior
The side profile of Nissan Terrano has angular bold lines which are different from Duster’s curvy lines. The flared wheel-arches make the Terrano look aggressive, distinguishing it from most of Nissan’s models in India. The doors have two horizontal creases in them that enhance the butch look, but it isn’t enough to alleviate the organic lines of the rest of the car. The rear end bears no similarity to any of the Nissan SUVs and it is evident that Nissan has developed a new tail lamp cluster without fiddling too much with the Duster lamps. It gets a chrome garnish to add a premium feel, but the overall appearance is rugged with roof rails and silver skid plates.Nissan Terrano Exterior
The flared up wheel arches of this SUV are endowed with a set of diamond-cut 16” machined light -weight alloy wheels in the top end variants, while the base as well as the mid variants are fitted with similar sized robust steel wheels, which certainly make the SUV look sportier. These classy rims have been further equipped with tubeless radial tyres of size 215/65 R16, which have a superior road grip on any terrain.

Nissan Terrano Interior

Nissan Terrano comes with an opulent bi-tonal beige-&-black colour scheme for its interiors. The lower variants have premium fabric seat upholstery while the higher variant has leather upholstery. Spacious interiors, a chrome-finished steering wheel along with a stylish gear knob with metallic finish, give the cabin a class-apart look and feel. Terrano’s Nissan heritage grille makes it look tough and rigid, the diamond-cut machined alloy wheels and sporty looking black bezel surround headlamps underscore its visual appeal. Even the combination tail lights are very prominent that adds an elegant touch to the SUV. This hefty SUV is placed in direct competition with the likes of Mahindra Quanto, Ford Ecosport and such other vehicles along with its cousin Renault Duster. The robust braking and suspension mechanism of the Nissan Terrano ensures a comfortable driving experience.
Nissan Terrano Interior
The additional features include rear AC vents, rear parking sensors and leather wraps for steering and the gear-knob. The premium version gets leather seats and wood finish inserts on the doors. The base XE diesel variant gets all black interiors, while the rest of the line-up gets a beige-black combination that makes the cabin look more spacious. On the other hand, only one variant of the Terrano Petrol is on offer – the Terrano XL which has ABS-EBD-Brake Assist, driver side airbag, music system and front fog lamps. The top-end version of the Terrano gets 10-spoke machine-finished petal shaped alloy-wheels which, though luxurious, look odd on the aggressive looking SUV. They are better suited to the Renault Duster which is softer of the two SUVs churned out by the Franco-Japanese consortium, Renault-Nissan.Nissan Terrano Interior
The interiors of the two SUVs look similar but there are some important features differentiating the them. The quality of interiors is superior in the Terrano and the cabin is more plush. The music system is also different and this one is more ergonomic and user friendly. The OVRM adjustment is positioned under the handbrake lever and is unintelligible. The rest of the equipment list is pretty much the same including the one-step driver height adjust and orange backlight for the instrument cluster. It also gets a rear AC vent that adds to the comfort of passengers, but it is a tad bit noisy increasing the NVH level. The interiors of the Nissan Terrano are opulent with plush seats, abundant leg room along with ample head and shoulder space for all thepassengers. This roomy SUV can house five passengers and provide a luxuriant driving experience. The comfortable seats also have lumbar support, which makes the ride extremely pleasurable. The front and rear knee room are also adequate along with ample elbow room for all the passengers. The quality of interiors is where Terrano races far ahead of Renault Duster. The ambiance oozes opulence and gives a very premium driving experience. The seats are covered with premium leather upholstery for the top-end variants, while the other variants get high-quality fabric upholstery. The centre fascia of top and mid variants is defined with glossy black colour over it, and the remaining variants get a matt black finish. The dashboard comprises of air conditioner vents along with a large and brilliant instrument cluster. The dual-tone black-&-beige colour scheme takes the posh feel another notch up. Other elements include a leather- wrapped steering wheel, a chrome insert on gear shift knob and front and rear armrests. The door trims have a beige finish and the decorative strip added looks perfect on them. The new Nissan Terrano also has quite a few in-cabin storage spaces such as map pockets, seat back pockets, cup-&-bottle holders in the door as well as between the front seats, a rear centre arm rest with storage and holders also adds to the comfort level offered by this SUV. For the rear passengers, Terrano has a separate two-speed air conditioner with independent control. This SUV has parking sensors to simplify parking in congested areas. Terrano is also equipped with reading lamps to cater to the special needs of the passengers. Entertainment features like Bluetooth connectivity, an integrated 2-Din Audio system with CD, MP3, AM, FM, USB Aux-In, Bluetooth four speakers - 2 front & 2 rear take pleasure another notch up. That apart, Terrano comes with a full size spare wheel, which has been further covered with a similar tubeless radial tyre and placed inside the boot compartment along with other tools required to change the tyre.

Nissan Terrano Engine & Transmission

The Diesel variant is powered by the same 1.5-litre dCi engine that powers the Duster and will be available in two different grades – the 83.8bhp base variant and the more powerful 108.5bhp for the top version. This fuel-efficient 1461cc, K9K, dCi diesel engine is quite powerful.

Nissan Terrano Mileage

The mileage quotient ranks very highly of the preference list of the Indian population and the Nissan Terrano impresses on this front. The 1.5-liter Diesel engine with 108.5bhp of power output registers a mileage of 19kmpl, while the same engine with 83.8bhp of power output produces an impeccable mileage of 20.5kmpl. The 1.6-liter Petrol engine gives a mileage of 13.2 kmpl and these statistics make Terrano a fuel-efficient SUV.

Nissan Terrano Braking and Safety

Nissan Terrano boasts of a staunch and robust braking system. The front wheels of the compact SUV are incorporated with discs which make braking deft. While the front axle of the SUV has an independent McPherson strut type of mechanism with a coil spring and also a highly advanced anti-roll bar; the rear axle gets a torsion beam axle along with coil springs and a similar anti-roll bar for enhanced comfort for the rear passengers. Both these systems put together ensure that the passengers as well as the SUV are stable at all times. The top-end versions of the Terrano are equipped with the sophisticated Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) along with electronic brake force distribution technology, coupled with brake assist and a stability control module to further upgrade the braking mechanism of the SUV. Other safety features comprise of an engine immobilizer, central locking, driver seat belt reminder, doors-not-well-closed reminder, rear defogger, reverse parking sensor and a heated tailgate glass warning light.

Nissan Terrano Performance and Handling

The diesel engine takes 12 seconds to cross the 100 kmph mark and slates a top speed figure of 175kmph. On the other end, the Petrol version attains a top speed of 165 kmph and takes 10 seconds to cross the 100 kmph mark from standstill.
Both engines are incredible performers and thus Terrano doesn’t feel sluggish at any given moment. The Nissan Terrano line-up has both Petrol and Diesel engine based versions. The Petrol engine is a 1.6-litre Multi Point Fuel Injection (MPFI) based engine, which is coded as 1.6K4M. It has the ability to displace 1598cc and can yield about 102.6bhp at 5850rpm along with 145Nm of peak torque value at 3750rpm, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission gear box.

What do we think about Nissan Terrano?

The Indian auto market is in for a treat from Nissan in the form of a fuel-efficient SUV named Terrano that is superior to its French cousin Renault Duster. The Renault-Nissan consortium has an agreement that the donor car will be positioned below the new model and hence the prices of the Terrano are higher as compared to the Duster. The good news for Indians is that the difference between the Terrano and its French cousin is a meagre 40,000 even for the top variant in India for price sensitivity is high in India.
The few things that differentiate the Terrano from the Duster include looks, ergonomics and interior quality – all of which rank high on any buyer’s priority list. This compact crossover competes with the Renault Duster, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV500, Tata Safari Storme, Force One and the Mahindra Scorpio in India. Terrano comes with the age-old Nissan branding that is being used since the 80s across the globe. Akin to the sale pattern of Duster, Terrano is targeted primarily at the developing countries of the world. It is not just a cosmetically enhanced version of Renault Duster but has robust underpinnings. On the flip side, it weighs a mammoth 100 kilograms more than Renault Duster and all that seems like unnecessary bulk. Sadly, weight is inversely proportional to efficiency. Terrano has marvellous looks and its dimensional compactness can be highly advantageous. The exterior is remarkable and unlike the interior, it doesn’t display the work of cost cutting. The paint quality is nice and the bonnet is robust. Contrary to popular SUV styling, Terrano is more plush and refined and this makes it an ideal lifestyle SUV. Nissan Terrano is priced between 9.6 L and 12.9 L as per the variant chosen and the on-road price differs from one State to another. It is an enthralling drive and its performance is unrivalled. Given its reasonable pricing and efficient engine, this SUV is a must buy. There’s no taking the football from Cristiano, All the music is in a Piano, Spice it up & do some Latino… Racing speedily is your Terrano !
