The Nissan Terra has started reaching dealerships in China. Here’s a walkaround video of the new SUV, showing its exterior and interior in detail.
The Nissan Terra is based on the third-gen Nissan Navara pickup truck and the successor to the Nissan Xterra. The new frame SUV is a direct competitor to the Ford Endeavour (Ford Everest), Toyota Fortuner (Toyota SW4), Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Chevrolet Trailblazer and Isuzu MU-X. It is designed closely to the pickup truck it is based on, but features a more contemporary front fascia and a distinctive rear fascia, to differentiate itself as a PV.
The Nissan Terra is 4,882 mm long, 1,850 mm wide and 1,835 mm high. It has a 2,850 mm wheelbase. While reports said that it is a 7-seat SUV, the display unit does not have third row seats. However, there is apparently enough space to offer two more seats at the back as an option.
The Chinese-spec Nissan Terra employs a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 184 hp and 236 Nm of torque. Transmission choices include 6-speed manual and 7-speed automatic. The display model is equipped with a 4WD system, but it is unknown whether this is included as standard or is optional.
Zhengzhou Nissan will launch the Terra in China on 12 April. The tough SUV will reach Thailand in the second half of the year and then in Indonesia. Nissan plans to launch eight new models in India by 2021 and focus on premium models. A possibility is the Nissan Terra.
