The Nissan Terrano SUV, based on its French sibling, the Renault Duster, has been around since 2013 and has received its share of updates. The 2017 Terrano is yet another update to the compact SUV which adds much needed equipment to the Terrano.
Nissan has concentrated mainly on the looks of the Terrano. The grille consists of a lot of chrome with trapezoid chrome strips on either side of a bold logo and dual-barrel square headlamps with blacked-out insides flank the grille. The overall design of the Terrano is similar to that of the new X-Trail and Pathfinder. The flared wheel-arches make the Terrano look aggressive, distinguishing it from most of Nissan’s models in India. The rear end bears a chrome garnish to add a premium feel, but the overall appearance is rugged with roof rails and silver skid plates.
The top-end version of the Terrano gets 10-spoke machine-finished petal shaped alloy-wheels, they feel premium but somehow look a little out-of-place on the muscular car. They will probably suit the Duster which is softer of the two cars.
The interiors of the Terrano also look familiar to that of the Duster. The equipment list is pretty much the same including the one-step driver height adjust and orange backlight for the instrument cluster. It also gets a rear AC vent that adds to the comfort of passengers, but it is a tad bit noisy increasing the NVH level. The Terrano gets a beige-brown combination that makes the cabin look roomier. It has ABS-EBD-Brake Assist, driver side airbag, music system and front fog lamps for the base petrol and the higher trims get dual front airbags for safety.
The Nissan Terrano is available in both petrol and diesel guise. The diesel version is powered by the same 1.5-litre dCi engine that powers the Duster and will be available in two different grades – the 85bhp base variant and 110bhp for the top spec version. Similarly, the petrol XL variant gets the 1.6-litre four-cylinder unit churning out 102bhp and 145Nm of torque. Nissan has not fiddled around with the engine tuning or the suspension setup and this means the riding and handling of the Terrano is exceptionally good.
The Nissan Terrano is a compact crossover and competes with the Renault Duster, Hyundai Creta, the Mahindra XUV500, the Tata Hexa, Mahindra Scorpio and the Tata Safari Storme. For that price, you can also opt for the top-spec C-segment sedan like the Honda City, the Maruti Ciaz and the Hyundai Verna.
