Nissan has launched a facelift version of their entry-level SUV, Terrano in India. The company first launched the Terrano in 2013 and the car has not received any major updates since then. The Terrano is a rebadged version of the Renault Duster, which was updated in 2016. There have been few changes that distinguish the 2017 Terrano.
There are 22 changes to the vehicle, but most of them are in the interiors. The new Terrano now gets a dual-tone dashboard that makes the car look a bit more premium. The most highlighted change of the new Terrano is the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that looks very similar to the Duster. The infotainment system also gets navigation and voice recognition if you’re using iOS based phones. However, Nissan has left out on the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The new Terrano also gets a new 3-spoke steering wheel with new audio mounted controls. Nissan has also added the much-needed cruise control on the top-end variant of the Terrano. There is also a new armrest, and the power buttons for windows are now illuminated. Power windows themselves get the anti-pinch feature.
On the outside, the car looks similar to the old one. The only changes are the dealer-level fitment of L-shaped DRLs and chrome surround for the fog lamps on the front bumper. Interestingly, Nissan has removed the rear AC vent from the new model.
The new Terrano is available in 5 variants, and Nissan has also added a new Sandstone Brown colour to the existing five colours – Bronze Grey, Sapphire Black, Blade Silver, Pearl White and Fire Red.
Under the hood, the car remains the same. There are two engine options on offer – a 1.6-litre unit that makes 103 BHP and 145 Nm of maximum torque with a 5-speed gearbox. The diesel engine is available in two states of tune, 84 BHP – 200 Nm and 108 BHP – 243 Nm. The 84 BHP version gets 5-speed manual gearbox while the more powerful engine option gets either 6-speed manual or an AMT.
