Hello George Sequeira..
Nissan Terrano is not available in automatic transmission.There's no confirmation from Nissan regarding launch of AT version of it.As per industry speculation, it can be expected by next year.Currently in compact SUV segment there are no much options available with AT.If planning to buy in near future then MT version would be best.
No, there is no automatic transmission is available in Nissan Terrano. You will get 6-speed manual gearbox with this compact 5-seater SUV. In this specific price limit, not many brand offers automatic gearbox though there are many automatic sedans like Honda city and Hyundai Verna are available in the market that lies closer to Terrano’s price range. Also, Ford has included automatic 6-speed gearbox in one of the variant of Ecosport that cost around 10 lakh.
As stated above we know that Nissan Terrano does not come with automatic transmission, however there are certain rumors that Nissan is working on the automatic version of Terrano. But in the meanwhile the 5 speed manual gearbox mated with a very powerful engine of this car is doing its job well. I don't understand why people go for automatic transmission in SUVs. SUVs are meant to be tough and to tackle offroad situations pretty well. The real fun will be missed if you are with automatic transmission.
No, Nissan Terrano does not come with any automatic gearbox. This series is equipped with a 1.6-litre, K9K petrol engine, which has a capacity to displace around 1598. On the other hand, the 1.5-litre dCi diesel engine is offered in two states of tune, but displaces 1461cc It is further incorporated with an efficient five-speed manual transmission gearbox. We believe that the company may launch the automatic version of this model in the future as normal up gradation.
Nissan Terrano does not have any automatic gearbox trim available in the market. It has only a five-speed gearbox system in all the trims of this model. The automatic gearbox is very helpful for any new driver, because it allows him to focus mainly on driving the car and not be distracted by the need to change the gear frequently. This feature is also very helpful in busy traffic conditions. However, the downside of automatic gearbox is that the fuel mileage drops significantly.
Unfortunately, the Nissan Terrano is not available currently in automatic transmission types currently. Neither the XL nor the XL Plus variants have automatic transmission feature and that is one of its cons. The Nissan Terrano XL has a 5 speed manual transmission and XV and XV higher end variants exhibit 6 speed manual transmissions. If one is looking for only automatic transmission they should consider other models in this range.
