Changes to be limited to cosmetics.
ET Auto reports that Nissan India is working on a mid-cycle facelift for the Nissan Terrano, which will launch this March. The information is divulged by a source close to the company, although Nissan is yet to confirm an intervention for any product.
The Terrano launched in October 2013 and hadn’t received any cosmetic updates. Its French cousin, the Renault Duster, embraced a major facelift last year. Nissan introduced an AMT variant of the Terrano 1.5 diesel last October, and to sustain interest in the product, a complete facelift could be in order.
Details on the changes are scarce at the moment but expect a redesigned front fascia through new bumpers, revised grille and headlamps, new alloy wheels and updated taillamps. Inside, Nissan could introduce a touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and Navigation, which is currently unavailable. The XE and XL grades could get a standard passenger-side airbag, although this is our speculation.
Engine options of the 2017 Nissan Terrano may be untouched – these include a 1.6L 4-cyl petrol engine with 104 PS and a 1.5L dCi engine available in 85PS/110 PS flavours. Transmission options are a 5-speed manual for the 1.6L petrol and 1.5L diesel (85 PS), a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed Easy-R AMT for the 1.5L diesel (110 PS).
