As Nissan India is expected to launch the updated Nissan Terrano SUV in India on 27th March in its bid to revive the fortunes in the SUV space, the company is allegedly looking to give the SUV a complete makeover. In its most updated avatar, Nissan said that the facelifted SUV will get updates in the interior and exteriors. That said, it was found that it will be the first that the Terrano will receive a facelift in India while noting the fact the Renault Duster, the model wherein the Terrano was based, has also received a makeover early last year.
According to The Financial Express, experts said that the new Terrano will likely get major updates such as LED DRLs or also known as Daytime Running Lamps, redesigned LED tail lamps including the bumpers. Under the bonnet, the company has also revealed that the facelifted Terrano is set to feature the same engine; a 1.6 liter petrol engine which has the ability to generate a 103 hp and 145 Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and a 1.5 litre diesel engine which is currently being offered in two states of tunes. At the same time, when it comes to its interiors, Nissan says that it will carry major updates with the inclusion of new touch-screen infotainment system, an automatic climate control, an optional all-black interior and much more.
Meanwhile, as per Car Blog India, with its current price ranging from the Rs 10-15 Lakh bracket, it is expected that pricing should remain largely unchanged. As soon as the face lifted Terrano would be launched, a significant number of car enthusiasts say that the SUV can be vied with the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross and the Ford EcoSport. Additionally, with regards to the safety, the company explains that the latest avatar of the SUV will sport dual front airbags, ABS or Anti-lock Braking System with EBD or sometimes referred to as Electronic Brakeforce Distribution as standard.
However, despite the cosmetic changes that will be applied to the new Terrano, experts say that technically speaking, the SUV is likely to remain unchanged and is likely to come powered by the same types of engine. Ultimately, it was found that while the details of the facelifted Terrano are currently scanty, various reports suggest that the changes will mostly be in the form of visual modification.
