Nissan Terrano Rear View

The Terrano will enable Nissan to foray into the compact SUV segment and will prove crucial in Nissan's future journeys in the country. The Nissan Terrano is rebadged Renault Duster.

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Great Interiors,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,

Cons ,Arm rest for the driver and co driver required.

Production in less numbers for 85 plus model hence long waiting. It clicked 21.7 Kmlit as average for a long trip. Very good drive. If your seeing for a SUV you can land up in a Terrano.......

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,Probably the best SUV in its class.

Cons ,Rear passanger cup holders too shallow. Driver arm-rest would be nice.

When I bought this SUV it looked good enough and since it was based on the Duster, another consideration was that it had a good and reliable reputation. Its based on the Duster, except for the outer sheet metal, lights, interiors and a few other tweaks. However, I've just come back from an extended Himachal Pradesh trip, where we covered 1400 km beyond Shimla (Shimla to Shimla loop as they say) going almost to TibetChina border. We did the whole loop Shimla-Kinaur, Spiti Valley, Pin Valley-Manali-back to Shimla. Plus a few other diversions branching out sideways and back to the loop. This SUV behaved wonderfully. It took everything that was thrown at it. Heres a few words for those of you who like to venture out into the rough The roads in that area are miserable as you may know - almost non existent at places. Even the road signs there say "These are the worlds most treacherous roads, drive carefully" And for sure these roads were bad, just 'jeepable' roads as the maps say. This SUV is not a 4x4 (not a four wheel drive) but it behaved like a champ. Passing through 'Glacier Country' between Kaza and Manali where the roads are washed away each year by glacier movements. The roads are non-existent, just rocks for hundreds of kilometers and covered with water at places. At places there are some nasty patches, even my very experienced driver had reservations driving there. He and I, were both experienced drivers and these roads are tough, but the vehicle took the roads with aplomb. There is no sign of asphalt on the roads (only kucha roads) for hundreds of kms. I have a lot more respect for this vehicle now after coming back from this trip, then when I bought it about a year ago. Im an engineer and live in the US and India and own vehicles in both countries, this is an impressive vehicle for the pricetwo thumbs up!!

My first experience on Terrano
Posted on 19 Aug 14 at 8:25 pm

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,

Cons ,Gear shift needs to improve

Look and style One of the best SUV in this category available in current Indian car market for look and style. Of course its a replica of Renault Duster still Terrano is more muscular and majestic. The appearance is the major attraction point and Nissan done some significant changes in Terranos interior too which gives more premium feel. Comfort Very decent comfort in front as well as back seats good to fit 5 people without any space compromise. Seats are broad to give good thigh support for long drives and seats are in good height level which has provided very good road visibility and increasing confident level for driving. Suspension of the Terrano is also surprisingly too good we wont bother when crossing speed humps and potholes. Pickup We bought XL Plus 85 PS diesel variant which deliver enough power with full load even in hill roads. If you are a racy person then go with 110 PS but be ready to compromise some fuel efficiency. Mileage I drove my terrano in all conditions like city roads, highway and hill area around 250 km with AC and I got 18 km mileage in average which is very impressive like this kind of solid built SUV. Best Features Road presence, solid build quality, mileage, air conditioning system, 16 inch machined alloy wheels, ample cabin space as well boot area. It has very good headroom, legroom and shoulder room for all passengers. Needs to improve Nissan can improve the gear shift quality for Terrano. Its not that much smooth when compared to ecosport. Gear knob is looks good in 110 PS but in 85 PS its very simple wont give premium feel. Nissan would have included audio controls mounted in steering wheel. Overall Experience I am very proud to be owner of this Japanese brand SUV. We got our SUV couple of days before and done 250 km in mixed driving conditions. May be this is too early to give complete review need some more time to explore in all aspects. One thing is sure if you go with Terrano I am sure you wont get disappointed. Nissan name it as Terrano Yes its true once you get into the SUV you will say Terror NO.

Heavy discounts finally make it a good buy
Posted on 19 Mar 15 at 10:21 am

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,

Cons CongestedUncomfortable,

I recently bought a new Terrano (110PS diesel) and got a brilliant deal on a 2014 manufactured model. I have been told there are discounts on the current year versions too. The Terrano was always an expensive buy over the Duster but finally dealers are realizing the mistake. Also, I have discovered a lot in the car lately. Its not a proper SUV - its a compact vehicle which means a long trip for 5 people isnt as comfortable as it would be in say a Safari or a XUV. Likewise, a trip with 5 on board and all the luggage will show its strain on the engine especially while driving up a hill - there is no replacement for displacement. Fuel economy isnt earth shattering - i get about 13-14kmpl max in city whereas my friend's Innova returns 11-12. Overall, if you keep in mind that its a compact SUV, it will be a good buy. Hope Nissan also starts offering AWD in the Terrano - just like Renault does in the Duster
