The Terrano is a good blend of styling and … driving

The SUV segment in the Indian market is a one. Some products seen tremendous demand some even sell in digits. Of late, the lucrative SUV segment has shown significant amidst the slowdown. Now Nissan has the Terrano in the Indian market a boost in the carmaker’s sales in India.

The Terrano is the first engineered product in India by based on the Renault Duster. to the Renault-Nissan alliance policies, the engineered Nissan Terrano be positioned above the Renault in terms of pricing. The Japanese has made prominent changes on the Terrano in order to differentiate the two In short, it is a refurbished Renault with a premium layer of

Let’s find out what it taste like.

Motor The Terrano name was used by for the Pathfinder in certain markets the Terrano II was an SUV sold in Europe 1993 to 2006. The Duster Terrano is the only car which now the Terrano name.

Exteriors – look at the Nissan Terrano remind you of the Renault Duster, as it sheet metal changes make it look fresh and You would appreciate every of the updated styling over the firstly because you are habitual of a Duster frequently and secondly has treated the Terrano with styling elements against the stout build. The front end of the Terrano points at you.

It has sharp bonnet lines and angular set of headlamps, which are blended with the traditional Nissan grille. The carved out bumper has a broad air inlet and fog lamps. Notice the fog lamps similar setup can be seen on the Nissan X-Trail.

The side of the Terrano reveals the same of the Duster. The robust wheel are retained and you get the same roofline slightly tweaked roof The pillars are blackened out for better and there are a flashy set of twin alloy wheels. The alloys get a pattern compared to the rather ones seen on the Duster.

The significant change on the side to notice is the character line runs straight and strong the front fender rising the rear fender. While on the they provide a mild crease that connects the

Coming to the rear strikes attention towards the twin tail light cluster. The light units are much and eliminate the sense of incompleteness the Duster’s rear profile Other changes at the rear redesigned bumper with new of reflectors and a new number plate that is triangular in shape with a thick piece of The rear windshield is exactly the as the Duster’s.

You won’t see black on the lower section of the body and the Terrano comes with colour body panels make it look neat and The overall styling of the Terrano up slick and sassy.

Interiors – The Terrano has comfortable ingress and Once you enter the cabin, the treatment of interiors gives a sense of space. Nissan has up the dashboard layout, which slightly more premium the Duster. The storage space on top of the has been covered now with a lid and the AC vents get rectangular in shape chrome outlining.

The instrument cluster covering has a panel and the steering wheel the same that gets a horn pad with silver The centre console is restyled vertical silver panels on the sides and piano black surrounding the new multimedia system.

additional embellishments make the styling a bit more attractive the Duster. Quality of the materials and the fit and finish is exactly the same which is much better the competition but doesn’t feel as as a car in this price bracket feel. The base XE trim with black interior, the rest get beige interior. combination used in the Terrano nicely and looks tastefully thanks to the piano black

The air conditioning is effective and the vents thick flow of air. falls under reach and of the controls are convenient to use apart the mirror adjustment control is placed under the handbrake You will also miss the pedal to rest your on long drives.

Nissan have addressed the minor issues which customers of the have been complaining since quite some now.

The door pockets are enough to accommodate 1-litre and there is enough spread of cup and small storage elements to knick knacks. Cabin needs a special mention as there is ample space in the rows as well as the boot. The are sufficiently supportive but lacking a bit of support.

The 475-litre boot space is with a convenient loading lip can accommodate a good load of Some of the safety and convenience offered in the Terrano include airbags, ABS, EBD, BA, fog reverse parking sensors, AC, double-din audio system CD/MP3, USB, AUX and Bluetooth Shockingly the steering mounted controls found on the Duster are not on the Terrano.

Performance – The Nissan shares the same engine that includes 1.6-litre and 1.5-litre k9k diesel engines. The diesel engine is offered in two of tune like the Duster, 85 PS, 200 Nm and 110 PS, 248 Nm respectively. On our media drive in we got to test both the 1.5-litre engine variants. The Renault 1.5-litre k9k diesel engine is a gem and 85 PS and 110 PS versions have their own

The 85 PS diesel gets the hold of immediately with a fractional of turbo lag. It provides power delivery right the word go until the mid-range, which the power starts away. This particular is ideal for city driving where you need initial and grunt. The engine feels from a low 1200 RPM till RPM.

Above 4000 RPM the feels inflexible.

The Terrano 85 PS speed till 130 km/hr much effort and the engine creamy. Reaching 140 km/hr and is time consuming and after the engine feels worked Mated to the 85 PS engine is a 5-speed gearbox with perfect for city driving conditions. You need to work the gearbox for around town, as it has minimal The 85 PS can even be kicked off in the second at … speeds.

The gear ratios are even for winding inclines but out on the highway you to downshift for slick and speedy At 100 km/hr the RPM needle hovers 2500 RPM.

Coming to the 110 PS the turbo lag ailment is there a thick one until 2000 post which the turbo in and you get a good boost of twisting with some torque The torque wave is enjoyable to on once you get used to the gear and maintain your gearshifts the turbo zone. The real lies in the mid and top range of the rev band, makes the 110 PS Terrano a terrific cruiser.

The engine feels throughout the range with top refinement. The 1.5-litre engine revving up to 5000 RPM.

to the 110 PS version is a 6-speed manual It is a rather long legged which is very convenient on the At 100 km/hr in sixth gear the spins around 2200 RPM in the turbo band, which the car has relaxed cruising ability enough grunt for high overtaking. There is no need to for overtaking trucks as far as you are in the turbo

On the flip side, the engine to be learnt for city driving and incline sections. The initial lag has to be treated with frequent otherwise you tend to do clutch The clutch operation feels a bit which adds to the hectic in congested traffic but it’s not a breaker as you would enjoy engine once you get a hang of it.

Dynamics – The beautiful synergy ride and handling is already on the Duster and same is the case the Terrano. The well balanced provides excellent comfort at speeds as well as city It keeps away the mild while the big potholes just thuds inside the cabin the body movement well control thanks to the monocoque

However the suspension setup a bit on the stiffer side but that of stiffness makes you feel on corners and high speeds, vertical and bouncy movement. The ride quality is unbeatable, to some cars belonging segments above the Terrano.

The Terrano has a front-wheel drive and the facile car like dynamics it one of the best handling SUVs in its which you would realise as as you hit a curve. The driver doesn’t to be prepared for a corner. The Terrano the corner neatly with body roll and departs a composed line, unlike of the SUVs. By OEM tyre standards, the MRF Wanderer tyres offer grip.

Adding to the sense of is the well calibrated steering that provides definite off the centre. At parking speeds the feels minutely heavy and when you hit bad roads while it does shudder and vibrate.

the fact that the Terrano is a sized SUV, a set of winding feels like nirvana. The enjoys to be pushed around the but pushing it too hard will some understeer. The NVH levels are and engine noise is kept under control but wind and noise is audible to some inside the cabin. Coming to the performance of the Terrano, it is equipped front discs and rear brakes.

It sheds speed with the ABS working well and nose dive but brake feedback could be crispier at speeds. No it’s not an off-roader as the comes with a 2-wheel setup, which doesn’t well on grassy and slushy However it comes with ground clearance with you can do mild off-roading provided is good traction.

Verdict – After driving the Terrano on the dynamic roads of we are out and out impressed by the capabilities of the compact Keeping all the good characteristics of the intact, Nissan has successfully to give the Terrano its own individuality by up the styling significantly. It looks premium and fresh. But, its in the market will totally on its pricing.

There are a few bits could have been such as the wind noise, pedal feedback, mirror control placement, etc. should understand that are well-read and using taglines “The Newest Icon In is misleading as the Terrano brings new to the table. With the news of an Duster coming soon, the will have to face from its own backyard.

Nissan has a good job of improving the Duster but there is nothing new in the Terrano, makes it tough for Nissan to its premium pricing for merely differences.
