About NISSAN TERRANO

Nissan has been known for its SUVs and Terrano is its first mass volume attempt for the Indian car market. The fascia is similar to that of a Nissan Pathfinder or a Patrol, which is very muscular in looks and appealing. It does feel premium and swanky.

The Terrano's interior get an upgrade in quality and even the fit and finish of most of the materials is good. The interiors of the Terrano have revamped if you are thinking to compare it to the Duster. The music system, the air con vents and even the steering wheel has been replaced on the Terrano. The quality of the replaced bits is better, however the other parts have the same styling. The Terrano is also available with the option of six-inch touchscreen infotainment system and also steering mounted audio controls too.

The seats are large and comfortable. The Terrano has spacious interiors and even the seats are comfortable for long journeys. There is space for four people and even the boot is large for a weekend getaway. The top of the line variant has rear AC vent too. The Terrano comes with three engine variants, one is a 1.6 litre petrol and other two tunings in diesels with 85 bhp and 108 bhp. The pick of the lot is the 1.5 litre diesel with 85 bhp.

The handling of the Terrano is good and the good thing is there isn't much body roll despite the ground clearance of 205 mm. The 83 bhp has a softer rear and it can be felt while taking corners, while the 108 bhp is stiffer. The ride on the Terrano is sorted and pliant. The underpinnings of the Terrano do a good job of ironing out most of the road bumps and shocks. The ride is good even when you drive on bad roads.

Our Verdict

Owing to a consortium agreement between the Japanese automaker, Nissan and the French automaker, Renault, the Terrrano and Duster feel more like siblings than competitors. The Terrano wears a borrowed look and apes the Duster on most fronts, except for Nissan design DNA in places. Nissan wants to vroom into the competitive SUV market with the Terrano but wants to stay close to the Duster so as to mirror its success and popularity. With robust looks that depicts no cost-cutting, it comes in 7 trims, one petrol and six diesel mills and is priced above the Duster. If you want a popular, reasonably priced, classy, compact SUV, then consider the Terrano from Nissan.
