The Nissan Terrano has finally been unveiled today after months of CAD leaks, official sketches and spy shots of camouflaged (and uncamouflaged) cars.

The Terrano is Nissan’s version of the Renault/Dacia Duster but instead of just changing the badges and altering the lights and bumpers, Nissan has done a more comprehensive job which also includes sheet metal changes. At the front, the Terrano has a completely revised fascia with sharper looking headlights, the traditional Nissan chrome grille in a V-Shape and a honeycomb layout combined with a different looking bumper.

When we view the side profile, there are a few changes visible as well. The immediate ones are the different looking alloy wheels, the blackened door pillars, and the roof rails which do not have the black plastic molding on their ends. Observe a bit more carefully and you will notice that the Duster’s U-Shaped crease line has given way for an almost straight crease extending through the lower half of the car.

At the rear, the Terrano gets a new bootlid to accommodate the combination lights, part of which are on the bootlid and the other part are on the pillar itself. The other obvious changes are the ‘Nissan’ and ‘Terrano’ badges and the larger chrome number plate housing.

    What about pricing? Whatever the changes be, the success of this product lies solely on competitive pricing. We should not compare it with the Duster as in the real world it will have to take on the Ecosport- pricing wise, styling wise, technology wise. And that is because why it is here.

    1. MOTORHEAD says:

      NO way will the Terrano be able to compete with the EcoSport because it is going to be positioned above the Duster as it promises to offer more luxury. Just compare the Duster and the Terrano in the exterior looks department.
      Terrano is more premium. Moreover, Renault has majority stake in the Renault-Nissan partnership so they won’t allow Nissan to kill the Duster which is basically a Dacia product — A Romanian brand owned by Renault.

      So, Duster is more costly than ecosport and Terrano is a luxry Duster so to say. Hence it won’t be able to compete with the Ford. Every Terrano variant will be around Rs. 50,000 costlier than the same Duster variant.
