A badge engineered version of the Renault Duster, the Terrano is the vehicle that is consistently at the top of sales charts for Nissan India, eclipsing the likes of lwer priced cars such at the Micra hatchback and the Sunny sedan. Well, that’s more proof that SUVs sell and sell big in India. Delving straight into the anniversary edition of the Terrano, the new variant comes right at the time when car buying interest in the country scales its yearly peak, or in other words, during the festive season.
