The biggest threat of the Nissan Terrano in India is from its rival Duster. Both the SUV’s are based on the same platform and also shares the same drivetrains as well but are tuned differently. The Duster too received its facelift back in 2016. Not only the Renault product has been given a new face, but it also gets an additional AMT transmission as well which is also used in this facelift Terrano variant as well. The Renault Duster gets the 1.5 Litre K9K diesel unit which is available in two states of tune, one producing about 85 Ps of peak power while the other produces about 110 Ps of peak power.
The Nissan Terrano received its first major updates since its introduction back in 2013. Being the only SUV offering in the Indian market, the Terrano inevitably attracted lot of attention for those who does not prefer the Duster. Off course there is no questioning the fact that this SUV looks far better than Duster but that also does not hide away the fact that both the SUV’s are not so different than each other.
