Nissan Terrano spotted testing in Chennai for the first time

Nissan India plans to enter the compact SUV segment with their version of the Renault Duster dubbed the Terrano. The Japanese car maker released a sketch few weeks back and now here are the first images of the Terrano test mule from Chennai.

The compact SUV stays loyal to the sketch released by Nissan as part of the online campaign. The vehicle gets the prominent honeycomb grille and a distinct headlight design. While the Renault Duster flaunts prominent, rounded wheel arches, the Terrano has opted for straighter lines to define its wheel arches. The interiors and the tail lamp cluster is modified – the AC vents are agular replacing the circular ones in the Duster, while the brake lights have moved to the bottom. The spy shots reveal that Nissan has taken a significant effort in distinguishing the compact SUV from its Renault sibling unlike in the case of the Micra and the Sunny.

Nissan Terrano is expected to be launched in September and in all possibilities will be powered by the same set of engines found in the Duster; a 1.6-litre petrol that produces 102 PS and 145Nm of torque and a 1.5-litre diesel that is available with an output of 85PS and 200Nm or 110PS and 245Nm.

The Terrano will be the fourth Nissan model to be manufactured at the Oragadam facility, and will be priced higher than the Renault Duster due to the terms of sharing between both manufacturers. However, Franco-Japanese consortium will have to reconsider the overall pricing strategy to sustain against the shock pricing of the Ford Ecosport.
