New Nissan Terra SUV officially revealed

After being spied more than once, the covers have finally been lifted off Nissan’s all-new Terra SUV. This new SUV, revealed in China, is a left-hand drive model and is likely to head into right-hand drive markets as well in the near future.

The Nissan Terra is based on a ladder-frame architecture, shared with the popular Navara pickup and the Mercedes X-class.  Nissan will showcase the new Terra SUV for the first time to the general public at the upcoming Beijing Motor show in China.

The new Nissan SUV, along with its underpinnings, also shares some exterior bits with the Navara and even on the inside, the dashboard is more or less the same as the pickup. The SUV, however, gets a unique front grille and bumper design.  The Terra gets a seven-seat, three-row layout with adequate space compared to future rivals like the Toyota Fortuner, the Ford Endeavour (Everest in international markets), the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and the Isuzu MU-X.

Under the hood, expect the Nissan Terra to, initially, be sold with a 2.3-litre four-cylinder diesel engine.  While Nissan has not revealed if they will offer the Terra in India, the seven-seat SUV has a good potential in our market.
