These images were snapped by Indian Autos Blog reader and founder of MyCopie, Gokulraj Kanagaraj. The Terrano was spotted on the NH45 which connects Chennai city to the Renault Nissan factory.

Nissan has on test at least two Terranos as the number plates on this prototype is different from the one earlier spied. And even though Nissan India has released the design sketch showing the rear of the Terrano since, the prototypes continue to be camouflaged.

At the front, the Terrano looks nothing like the Duster (on which it is based upon). The general comments from our readers seem to be pretty positive as to the looks of the Terrano.

At the rear, the Terrano sports a split taillight design which certainly looks better than the Duster. While the design sketches did not sport a wiper, rest assured it will be available on the top end models, as seen on this prototype.

Now coming to the scoop of the story. In our previous story, we spotted that the aircon vents were rectangular in shape, resembling the Nissan Sunny/Micra. In these images, we can not only confirm that, but you also see chrome-like surrounds for the vents and the vent adjusters, signaling that a more premium interior (compared to the Duster) would be on offer.

The instrument cluster outline on the Terrano is also different. Where the Duster has a 'wedge' portion in between, the Terrano has no such thing. It resembles the Nissan Sunny/Micra again.

The Terrano is likely to be launched by the festive season commanding a premium price of about INR 40,000-50,000 more than the Duster.
