Nissan Terrano – awaiting all-wheel drive
The recently appeared Nissan Terrano, but a technological copy of Renault Duster can not be called. The car was prepared for export to India, but, as you know, it is possible that domestic users will also see something interesting for themselves in this compact crossover.
The appearance of the new Terrano generation was by no means spontaneous, all that the developers of the alliance are projecting and then putting into practice has good reason. Let’s recall his relative in the production hall, the Renault Daster crossover, which “there aren’t enough stars from the sky”, and no one counted on it, but it fulfills the labor and money invested in it in good faith, especially if versions with all-wheel drive are meant.
But there are always reasons that prevent a car from selling more efficiently. In the case of Daster, this is certainly the image of a crossover, simple and inexpensive, as well as the exterior, which, unfortunately for the alliance’s marketers, is not impressive. Apparently for this reason, the company decided to improve the situation in the line of compact crossovers and develop another car, improving its appearance, and at the same time the name – Nissan Terrano.
Everything is fine with the design of this model, many motorists have a memory of a strong mid-range crossover, with good power and, accordingly, cross-country ability. There are also awards in the arsenal of the model, for example, he distinguished himself in a rally in Dakar in 1999 and was awarded as the best SUV with a diesel engine.
It should be noted the excellent work of designers with the exterior of the body. The car resembles Nissan SUVs of more expensive classes. The interior of the car has also improved, the colors of the skin are well selected, and high-quality materials have been used. The climate control system has replenished with an additional option that allows you to adjust the air flow to the rear row passengers.
The export line offers Terrano in 3 versions. One with a gasoline engine of 1.6 liters, and the second with diesel (85/110). But, most annoyingly, a crossover with such an impressive pedigree, began to arrive in India only in front-wheel drive transmission trim levels. Therefore, the machine does not ship to other countries. For example, with us, without all-wheel drive and with such low-powered ICEs, the success of the crossover falls into a big question, although the Renault-Nissan alliance can easily correct the situation. In the meantime, Terrano, this is a modernized Daster, more expensive, but probably it suits the company’s marketing.
