15th Mar 2018 11:14 am
Seven-seat SUV is a future rival to the Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner.
Just two weeks after its official unveil, the Nissan Terra will launch in China on April 12. The announcement from Zhengzhou Nissan also carries more details about the seven-seat SUV.
The ladder-frame architecture of the Terra is shared with the Navara pick-up and, incidentally, the Mercedes X-class. It is 4,882mm long, 1,850mm wide and 1,835mm tall, with a 2,850mm long wheelbase. Expect the Terra to be decently capable off the road thanks to a reported 220mm of ground clearance, and approach and departure angles of 33 and 26 degrees, respectively.
For the Chinese market, the Terra will be powered by an 184hp, 2.4-litre, naturally aspirated petrol motor mated to a six-speed transmission. An optional seven-speed automatic is also on offer, as is a 4WD system.
The new images released show that the Terra features LED headlamps and DRLs, and 18-inch alloy wheels on the outside. Inside the cabin, the SUV sports wood trim on the central console, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, a touchscreen infotainment system, an engine start-stop button and cruise control. The images also show 60:40 split-folding rear seats and a five-seat configuration, which may mean both, five- and seven-seat versions will be on sale in the Chinese market.
The Nissan Terra is likely to head to right-hand-drive markets in the near future. It has potential for the Indian market, where the seven-seat SUV will rival the likes of the the Toyota Fortuner, the Ford Endeavour, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and the Isuzu MU-X.
