  • Hi Anshu, you are excused. The Nissan Pathfinder is sold as the Nissan Terrano in a some regions.

    Excuse me, Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan Terrano are both different cars. You said “The Nissan Pathfinder (or the Terrano in some parts of the world)”, and it is totally unreliable as both are different segment cars. Nissan Pathfinder is a 7-8 seater mid-sized SUV whereas Nissan Terrano is a 5 seater mid-sized SUV. Terrano is only released in India (according to me) whereas Nissan Pathfinder is almost everywhere except India. 🙂
