Mumbai, Aug 3 (): Nissan India has officially announced that the company will unveil all-new Terrano SUV for the first time in Mumbai on 20th August 2013. Further, the new Terrano is expected to be launched in September or October, just before the Diwali season starts.
Earlier, Nissan India released few sketches of the upcoming model, which later was named Nissan Terrano. The sketches revealed some information about the styling of Terrano.
Given a slightly different look than the current version of Renault Duster, Terrano will be seen with a new front and rear outlook and a contoured bonnet. Internal features and cabin comforts will be at their best. A rectangular centre air conditioning vents, silver accents on steering wheel, a new dashboard and a distinctive Nissan badge can be expected.
The Terrano will sport a new front look that will include modified headlights, a new front grille and a new bumper. The exterior styling would not exactly be similar to that of the Renault Duster.
The SUV will use the same 1.5-litre diesel engine from the Duster. Like Renault, Nissan too will offer the Terrano in two states of tunes 85PS and 110PS. The Terrano will be made available in a total of four variants – XL, XL(O), XV and XV Premium.
As far as pricing is concerned, Duster based Terrano will be slightly more expensive than the Renault Duster although Nissan is expected to provide the users more equipment and better quality interior. Earlier reports said that Terrano will be priced Rs 9 lakh for the entry-level model. The soon-to-be-launched Terrano compact SUV will be manufactured at Nissan India’s Chennai plant.
The carmaker assures the upcoming Nissan Terrano might very well become a game-changer in the fast challenging business of compact SUVs.
Besides the new Nissan Terrano, the carmaker is planning to introduce the current Qashqai generation into the market. The announcement has not been made official yet but the company’s executive vice president, Andy Palmer hinted about it.
