Nissan Terrano AMT Automatic Exterior Design
Nissan has not made any major cosmetic enhancements. It continues with the same front bumper and grille, along with same rear bumper design. Only change includes the addition of turn indicators to the external rear view mirrors. 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. The looks of the Nissan Terrano have played a major role in the SUV’s popularity. However, it really needs an update to stay in the game.
Nissan Terrano AMT Automatic Interior Design
While the interior design and cabin layout of the Nissan Terrano AMT is the same as the current car, it gets new soft touch plastics on the dashboard and door trim. Other additions include white backlit illumination on door switches, new door trim design. The overall colour scheme now features a greater amount of dark elements. The Terrano suffers from a lack of certain basic features that its competitors come with. We were expecting Nissan to add a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control and steering audio controls, but that has not been the case.
Nissan Terrano AMT Automatic Engine and Transmission
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 and 200 Nm and 108 bhp and 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 gets the automatic option in the form of a 6-speed AMT gearbox. This is the same gearbox that comes with the Renault Duster automatic. Fuel efficiency is unlikely to take a hit.
Nissan Terrano AMT Automatic Colours
The SUV will be available in 5 colour options
- Blade Silver
