The Terrano is available with the 1.6-liter petrol engine outputting 104PS or the 1.5-liter K9K diesel engine producing 85PS or 110PS. While the 85PS diesel and the petrol variant get a 5-speed manual gearbox, the 110PS diesel gets a 6-speed manual transmission. In short, the Terrano features the same engine lineup as the Renault Duster.

Nissan has restyled the exteriors of the Terrano to better differentiate it from the Duster. The headlights, taillights, grille, bumpers and the bootlid are completely redesigned. Inside, the Terrano gets a new steering wheel, rectangular aircon vents (as compared to the Duster’s circular vents) and a new music system. However, the Terrano misses out on steering mounted audio controls.

    Overpriced & I don’t understand the concept of this Badge Engineering.

    Renault & Nissan are thinking that they can fool the Indian public by saying that TERRANO & DUSTER are 2 completely different vehicles.(sic)

    The best looking mini SUV for sure. Duster and Ecosport pales in comparison.

    Overpriced, yes. Duster was overpriced too. Ecosport, for the cramped box it is, the pricing was high but hidden. They teased the start variant with an aggressive pricing and then the next variant was 1 lac more ! And, they increased the price barely few weeks after release and didn’t even give a price protection for people who booked it months before the release. And then the dealers started taking customers for a joy ride like never before, 2.5 lac booking amount, compulsory accessories and the like.
