IAB World Exclusive – Nissan Terrano spied testing

Anjan

Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

The Nissan Terrano was spotted testing in Chennai recently and this is the first time that we get to see the actual car. Yes it does have camouflage on it, but we don’t know why Nissan India is bothering with all that, given that we know what the car looks like.

These images were clicked by Mr. Gokulraj Kanagaraj, avid Indian Autos Blog reader and founder of MyCopie (makers of notebooks that have covers featuring augmented reality). Gokul caught the Terrano testing near the Chennai airport (Grand Southern Trunk Road that eventually leads to the Renault-Nissan plant in Chennai).

This is what we observed from these images:

1. The front fascia of the Terrano stays true to the official sketch released by Nissan India. We see certain details such as the honeycomb grill are exactly as seen on the sketch. The headlights, though camouflaged, reveal the sharp design of the Terrano.

2. We were the first to point out that the Terrano would feature a different side crease on the door: Where the Duster has a crease in an inverted U-shape, positioned higher up in it’s body, the Terrano sketch featured a straight crease in the lower half of it’s body. The test mule also sports this crease, which means that Nissan is making sheet metal changes to the car.
