Nissan Terrano AMT Automatic Design
We’re not expecting to see any major cosmetic enhancements. However, Nissan might give the Terrano range a mild exterior update. A new front bumper and grille, along with a reprofiled rear bumper is are what we’re expecting. Tail lamps could get a LED treatment as well. Apart from that, the Terrano will continue with the same design. The current SUV’s exterior is a mildly reworked version of the Renault Duster with which its shares almost everything. The Terrano gets sharper headlamps and larger tail lamps along with a new alloy wheel design.
While the interior design and cabin layout of the Nissan Terrano AMT will be the same as the current car, it could get new upholstery. Also, Nissan might add certain features such as a touchscreen AVN. Other than that, it will continue with the same interiors as the current car.

Currently, Nissan Terrano is available with two engine options. These include a 1.6 L Petrol that makes 102 bhp and 145 Nm mated to a 5-speed manual. The other engine on offer is a 1.5 L diesel available in two states of tune – 84 bhp-200 Nm and 108 bhp 248 Nm. The former gets a 5-speed manual transmission while the latter comes with a 6-speed manual as standard. The 110 PS 1.5 L Diesel is the one that will get the automatic option in the form of a 6-speed AMT gearbox. This will be the same gearbox that comes with the Renault Duster automatic. Fuel efficiency is unlikely to take a hit.
