Nissan releases sketch of the Terrano Duster-based SUV for India
Nissan India has released a sketch of its Renault Duster-based SUV called the Terrano. The entry-level SUV will be the fourth Nissan to be manufactured at the Oragadam plant along with the Micra, Sunny and Evalia. Far from belief that this SUV will be priced lower than the Duster, Nissan in fact may charge a hefty premium for the Terrano. The premium may be justified somewhat, considering the extra features in the Terrano when compared to the donor Duster. In addition to exterior changes, we expect added features in the interior, reversing the current trend of Renault-badged Nissans that have more kit. The Terrano will receive a face similar to other global Nissan SUVs. The headlamps, grille and bumper assembly are new and we expect fresh alloy wheels. The side section may look identical to the Duster while at the rear, the lamps may have LED elements to them.
Inside, things are expected to remain substantially the same, save of course for the badge changes and a few additional features possibly reverse parking assist among others. We expect Nissan to launch the Terrano within a few months and with the same choice of 104PS petrol and 85 and 110PS diesel engines from the Duster. With the added price, we'd love to see Nissan throw in a four-wheel drive option, but that's just us.
President and CEO of Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd, Kenichiro Yomura, said the Terrano will play a key role in increasing sales within the Indian market: "I am delighted to reveal both the name and the very first image of what will be a very important model for Nissan."
"You can see from the sketch that the Terrano has a bold and distinctive design that I am confident will appeal to our growing customer base in India, as will its driving performance and range of other features that will be revealed at a later date."
