The Nissan Terrano is a basically a Duster beneath which has been made to look more stylish and upmarket, keeping in line with Nissan’s global SUV portfolio. But that can’t take away from the fact that it is the same underneath as the Duster. In the beginning of the year, Renault introduced an AMT version of the Duster. Since the mechanicals of both the Duster and the Terrano are the same, it was known that the same would make its way to the Terrano as well.
After a few weeks of teasing, Nissan has gone ahead and introduced the AMT version of the Terrano in the country. It is priced between Rs 13.75 and Rs 13.85 lakhs, ex showroom Delhi. You can now go and book one at a dealership near you by paying a booking amount of Rs 25,000. Deliveries are expected to start later this month.
The Nissan Terrano AMT is powered by the same 1.5 liter K9K unit which does duty on the Duster. The AMT version comes in the 110PS avatar which makes 108 Bhp and 248 Nm. The AMT unit is the same 6 speed one that comes on the Duster as well. ARAI claimed fuel efficiency of this variant is 19.61 kmpl.
In addition to the AMT, this variant will also get hill hold assist and ESP, something which the other variants lack. Not only has the company introduced the AMT variant, but it has also introduced 14 updates across the Terrano range. The vehicle now gets electronically folding mirrors along with indicators integrated into the mirrors, new driver arm rest, soft touch dashboard and door trim. A new colour, Sandstone Bown has also been introduced to the vehicle.
A few features have also been made standard across the range, like white backlit illumination for the door switches, new door trim, one touch indicator and automatic warning for emergency braking. With this, the Terrano range consists of 1 petrol variant, 2 diesel variants in 85 PS for and 2 diesel variants in 110 PS form (one being the manual and one being the AMT).
