The Nissan Terrano will be launched in India during the first week of October. A few dealers are even specific saying that the Terrano will be launched on October 9th.
Unveiled on August 20th, Nissan India has not made the price announcement for the Terrano, only mentioning that the starting price would be "below INR 10 lakhs". Pre-bookings for the Terrano commenced on September 1, with the initial booking amount being INR 50,000.
We also learn from a source that though the car would be launched on October 9th, initial deliveries will commence only by November end. Our source was keen to mention that prices would be in the range of INR 10-14 lakhs.
The Terrano will be available with the same set of engines as the Duster. Which means that you get a single 1.6-liter petrol engine option putting out 104PS which Nissan will offer it in a single 'XL' variant, equipped with safety features such as ABS, EBD and brake assist.
The 1.5-liter Renault-sourced K9K diesel engine will be available in two states of tunes of 85PS and 110PS. The 85PS diesel comes with a 5-speed manual while the 110PS version comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
We have also learnt that Nissan India is considering a 4WD version of the Terrano for a future launch. Additional equipment such as steering mounted audio controls and a touchscreen multimedia system are also in the making.
