Two days before the official unveiling of the much anticipated Nissan Terrano, the crossover has been spotted completely undisguised at what is believed to be a Nissan stock yard. The pictures reveal the styling cues used on the Terrano that clearly distinguish it from the Renault Duster on which the compact SUV is based.
The compact SUV stays loyal to the sketch released by Nissan as part of the online campaign. The vehicle gets the prominent honeycomb grille with broad chrome inserts similar to many global Nissan SUVs. The Terrano also gets a distinct headlight assembly along with restyled front bumpers. While the Renault Duster flaunts protruding, rounded wheel arches, the Terrano has opted for straighter lines to define its fenders.
The rear also gets a complete makeover that starts with the angular taillight cluster and a reformed rear bumper. The spy shots reveal that Nissan put in a significant effort in distinguishing the compact SUV from its Renault sibling unlike in the case of the Micra and the Sunny.
There has been news of the Terrano getting a four-wheel drive unit on its top end variant, but what is more certain is its available set of power sources. The 1.6-litre petrol that produces 102 PS and 145Nm of torque and the 1.5-litre diesel that is available with an output of 85PS and 200Nm or 110PS and 245Nm is expected to be on offer.
The Nissan Terrano is expected to be available at showrooms a few weeks after the launch which is scheduled for the 20th of this month. Nissan will have to strategise the overall pricing strategy of the car to sustain against the shock pricing of the Ford Ecosport.
