Showing information of Nissan Terrano XV D Premium AMT - Diesel variant
October 07, 2016: Nissan has launched the updated Terrano and it is now available with a six-speed AMT (automated-manual transmission) automatic version. The new AMT variant, which is based on the range-topping trim (XVD Premium) is available in the price range Rs 13.75 – 13.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The six-speed AMT, which Nissan dubs ‘6-Speed Advanced Auto Drive’, is coupled to the 110PS version of the 1.5-litre dCi diesel, which puts out 110PS of max power and 248Nm of peak torque. Rest of the powertrain options – 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre 85PS diesel, both are available with a five-speed manual and 1.5-litre 110PS diesel with six-speed manual – have been kept unchanged. Nissan has also added new features in the 2016 Terrano, such as electrically folding ORVMs with integrated turn signals, anti-pinch driver side window, one-touch turn indicators and automatic warning for emergency braking (standard across all variants), among others. The updated Terrano continues to compete against the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster and others.
This car is a perfect solution for people like me who have a luxury car but want an easy to use, powerful and reliable car for the everyday commute to the office.
Although it has its own problems and feels a tad bit outdated, it is still a good car.
But where it scores is on air-conditioning, performance and size.
It looks rugged and has no hatchback like looks (Hyundai Creta) or MPV looks (Honda BRV), instead looks like a compact and affordable version of the soon to release X-trail.

Look and Style: Awesome looks & style from outside, even beats BMW X1 because of the broad headlights & front grills. The only thing similar with the Duster is the front & back Fenders, other than that everything is different even the sheet metal work and metallic paint job.
Comfort: Very good comfort level inside.
Pickup: 1st gear it lags, power runs in 2nd & 3rd gear, Nissan has set gear shifting limits for each gear 2nd gear it hits up to 40km/hr, 3rd hits up to 70km/hr, 4 read more 34

The Nissan Terrano is, at its essence, a Renault Duster in a more premium package. While it gets the same robust build and abuse-friendly nature of the Duster, it features a more mature design and better interiors too. Should you consider it over its more affordable sibling and indeed, it’s rivals?
Things We Like in Terrano
205mm of ground clearance. More than enough for Indian roads.
Six-speed AMT gearbox is well-tuned. Great to use in the city and on the highway.
Duster’s ride quality and tough nature in a more stylish package.
Diesel engine offers great driveability and efficiency.
Things We Don't Like in Terrano
Cannot match the finish quality or features of its rival, the Hyundai Creta.
No all-wheel drive option even though its more affordable cousin gets it.
Interior quality, while better than the Duster, is only acceptable for the price.
Stand Out Features
Six-speed manual transmission with 110PS diesel engine for improved highway cruise-ability and efficiency.
The Nissan Terrano is a good alternative for someone who wants the Duster’s core qualities, but without drawbacks like the Renault’s poor interior quality. It’s also a good SUV to drive and has a practical cabin, including a big boot.
"However, at its price, it feels under-equipped and the higher-variants are priced dangerously close to the XUV500, which is not only well-equipped, but can seat two more occupants as well."
It is an upgrade to the Duster, but that’s its only real selling point.
I still remember the time, when I was driving the Nissan Patrol, the massive 4.2-litre petrol mill that has acceleration like a sports car. It isn?t just quick, but off the road capable to crawl on several terrains. The Land Cruiser is the most commonly spoken name in dune bashing, but the Patrol is equally good if not better. Nissan might not have the Patrol and the Pathfinder in our markets, but the company had introduced the Nissan X-Trail and now the new Terrano makes it way into India. We get our hands on this new SUV from Nissan and we find out in it has same SUV DNA. Read further as we share our experience.
