Following the Muscular Duster, here comes the good looking Terrano. Nissan is looking to make most of the post Duster Success. The Terrano like the Duster has been getting positive reviews from the user community. Terrano is placed a little above Duster with a price range of sub 10L and is awaited as one of the premium offerings from the Japanese car maker.
USER’S TAKE ON THE CAR
User’s take on the car has been very positive and exactly in contrast what our critics feel. The Car is well-designed and except from few design features which it borrows from Duster looks new and more superior. The grille has a new feel to it and is much larger than most of the Nissan offerings. The Headlamps are improvised and look sleeker and are angularly placed into the front grille. The Terrano has 16” inches wheel which go down well and makes the car look less muscular than the Duster and gives the car a better ground clearance. The Doors have been nicely designed and gives the car a special feel. The Rear of the car also gets similar angular tail lamps and looks better than Duster’s design.
The interiors borrows a lot from the Duster with few changes here and there .There is a new audio system with stylish controls which is a delight to the music lovers. The chrome and silver colour layout gives the interior a plush and luxurious look. The Car from the inside reminds a lot of the Duster and we wish Nissan could have focused on bringing in more sophistication to the car’s interiors.
The car comes with a similar engine as the Duster which we feel is good since the Duster is one of the best engineered products of Nissan. Both the car are powered by the K9K engines with very little variance in the performance. Riding the Terrano is such a joy, and the car maker has focussed on cutting down much of the noise which comes in play when the car is driven through rough terrains. The car is a pleasant ride in and around the city. The engine roars on clear roads and capable of taking the fastest of the Beast in this segment.
The car packs in all the latest Safety features such as the airbags, ABS and also a reverse parking sensor which helps the car to be parked without those glitches. We felt that the car has some problem with the Seating which felt little uncomfortable under braking. Some of the Controls are awkwardly placed and the user would definitely need some time to get used to them.
FINAL VERDICT: Who cares what the critics have to say, the car is been received good by the user community. The Handsome Terrano has the right elements to become the best seller of the Year. The Success of Duster has paved way for Nissan to strengthen its market value in India. Nissan looks to emerge as the most successful car maker of the year with its Terrano and The Duster.
