Based on the Renault Duster platform, the Terrano was designed at Nissan’s Yokohoma design studio in Japan and was developed at the Renault-Nissan technology centre in Chennai, India.

Nissan has restyled the exteriors of the Terrano to better differentiate it from the Duster. The headlights, taillights, grille, bumpers, and the boot lid are completely redesigned.

Surprisingly, Nissan will be offering a third row seat as part of the optional accessories. Though this is not an adult seat, it should suffice for small kids for short distances.

We guess that the integrated display will also house the tripmeter and would come with an automatic day/night function.

Nissan also offers audio controls that strap into the steering wheel. The controls are grouped on a remote and a strap attaches the remote to the inner circumference of the wheel. Parts such as door mirrors with blinkers and illuminated door sills have also been developed.

One of the reasons for these bookings (though they’re initial booking figures) can be attributed to the way Nissan has segmented the Terrano: Even the base model is available with a driver airbag as standard.
