The Nissan Terrano had made headlines a few weeks ago when the images of this model were released by Nissan indicating its plans of launching this model. Now the auto maker has announced that this Duster based SUV will be unveiled on 20th of August, 2013.
Terrano is not a very well known name to Indians, but Nissan has used this name on its SUVs which are sold in other parts of the world, including European and North American markets. However, the company has followed a different strategy for India. Nissan has developed Terrano based on the popular mid-size SUV, the Renault Duster. Going by the images which were released by the company a few weeks ago, this new SUV carries a sportier and more aggressive personality compared to Renault Duster. The front bumper is bolder and the design of headlamp and front grille look more dynamic. The Nissan Terrano may also carry roof rails to provide that sporty appeal. Having the personality of an authentic SUV, Terrano may have a price tag higher than that of the Renault Duster. This SUV will be competing with other compact SUVs like the Ford EcoSport and of course the Renault Duster itself.
