It is being said that the new Nissan Terrano India launch could happen on October 9.
The pre-bookings for the upcoming compact crossover have been underway since Sept 1 and Nissan India has stated that the Terrano will be launch with a sub-INR 10 lakhs price tag.
The Terrano will go on sale with two diesel and one petrol engine option. The diesel variants of Terrano get the 1.5-litre oil burner in two states of tune- 85PS and 110PS. The petrol variant of the Terrano is powered by a 1.6 litre normally aspirated motor that has a max power of 104 PS. While the Petrol and less powerful Diesel motors would come mated to a 5 speed manual ‘box, the 110 PS Diesel engine gets a 6 cog unit.
The car will go on sale in three trim levels- XE, XL and XV.
- The XE, which is the entry level variant, will be powered by the 85PS oil burner and will come equipped with a driver side airbag, front and rear power windows and a multi-information display.
- The next variant, the XL, gets gets more safety features such as ABS, EBD and Brake Assist. The car also gets a music system and foglights. XL can be bought with any of the two diesel engines. The XL is also available with the 1.6 litre petrol engine option.
- The flagship variant, the XV, will come with only the 110PS engine and will be equipped with dual airbags, ABS, EBD, 16-inch alloy wheels, reverse parking sensors, rear AC and leather seats.
The Terrano will be sold with 6 color options- Pearl White, Blade Silver, Saphire Black, Sterling Grey, Bronze Grey and Fire Red.
It would be interesting to see if the Terrano, which is essentially a re-skinned Duster, would be able to eat into the sales of its own donor vehicle and into that of the seemingly all-conquering Ford EcoSport.
