The recent showcase of the production version of the Nissan Terrano attaracted a lot of eye balls in the industry. The SUV segment is one of the hottest in the country right now with both Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport ranking up good sales number and it seems the Terrano too will do good business in India.
Nissan had only showcased one color at the preview a few days back but recently uploaded a picture of the SUV in white too - it does look smashing to say the least and we have come to know that media drives are scheduled to start on the 15th of next month. Nissan hasnt divulged in more details on the Terrano - both specifications and version list has not been shared either. What we know however is that the Terrano, like the Duster, will come with both petrol and diesel engine options with the latter being offered in both 85 and 110PS configurations.
The Terrano will also make use of better materials on the inside and Nissan has worked hard to change the layout of the cabin. The Terrano carries forward the Duster's airy feel on the inside and we are told the behaviour of the SUV on the road and off it is remarkable.
Nissan officials have confirmed the Terrano will be priced under Rs 10 lac and going by the Duster's price list, we feel that the Terrano diesel versions will start at roughly 9.2 to 9.3 lac (ex-showroom Delhi).
Now while this is way more than the Ford EcoSport, the Terrano is a whole different SUV all together - its bigger, more spacious, has a better suspension and the 110PS version performs brilliantly well too.
Stay tuned for more!
