Since the launch of the Duster last year, enthusiasts have been looking forward to Nissan’s version of the SUV. After unveiling the Terrano last month, Nissan today launched the car at a start price of Rs 9.59 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. The Japanese car manufacturer had already started bookings at Rs 50,000 post the unveil. Also read: Nissan Terrano: First Drive

 

The Terrano is Nissan’s first locally manufactured compact SUV and with that it marks its entry into the fast growing compact SUV segment that Indian have this new found love for. Based on the already popular Renault Duster, the Terrano, although a badge-engineered sibling, screams out Nissan’s design language. The front grille, bumpers, tailgate as well as the creases have been given the ‘Nissan’ touch. The interiors too remain pretty much the same like the Duster except for a few changes that meekly add the differentiation between the two cars.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Kenichiro Yomura, President, Nissan India Operations, said, “Terrano perfectly embodies our spirit of delivering innovation and excitement to our customers.  It proudly carries forward the legacy established by our SUVs like Pathfinder and Patrol. We are confident that Terrano’s stylish exterior, premium interior and a well-balanced dynamic package will appeal to SUV lovers in India. Terrano is an important product for us and will set the pace for future product launches slated for 2014.”

 

Under the hood, the Terrano hosts the same 1.5-litre dCi mill that will be offered in two states of tune – the detuned 85PS diesel mill produces 200Nm of torque and the 110PS unit with 248Nm of torque. It is also available with the 1.6-litre petrol engine that produces 104PS and 145Nm of torque.  The 110PS diesel comes with a 6-Speed transmission while the rest of the range gets a 5-Speed gearbox.
