Nissan to launch Terra SUV in China, India launch on the cards?

Japanese car-maker Nissan will launch its much-awaited, the Terra, in the Chinese market. Launch is set to take place in April an Nissan have released the first set to images of the vehicle. Nissan have not yet confirmed the Terra for India, but we can expect to be launched sometime this-year.


Nissan Terra is based on the third-gen Nissan Navara, and this fact is evident in the design.

The Terra has been specifically designed for Asian markets and this may prompt Nissan to launch it in India. It is based on the platform that underpins pick-up trucks like the Nissan Nevara and Mercedes-Benz X- class. The Terra will be marketed as a full size mod level SUV, when it gets launched in India.

Nissan have given the Terra a boy design theme reminiscent of other big SUVs from them. The front has a V-shaped grille enchromed and wrap around headlights have LED inserts. On the rear, we can see horizontal tail lamps joining a chrome line.


Nissan Terra is a full-size 7-seater SUV aiming at the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour.

Interiors of the Terra look good with a wood-crafted central console. The interiors have been given a black trim and has features like a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control system and cruise control. It has a three-row seating which can seat 7 adults inside.

The Terra will be powered by a 2.4-litre engine, giving 184 BHP of power. It will come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, with a 7-speed automatic transmission being offered as an option. There is also a 4-wheel drive system on offer for the Terra.

We can expect to see the Terra on Indian roads at the end of the year to be the earliest. When it does come, it will rival the Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Endeavour. There could be a big chance of the Terra arriving, given people’s interest in big SUV’s.
