The Nissan Terra made its first debut in the Philippines back in 2018, and despite being late to the midsize SUV segment, it did garner a lot of love and attention from Filipinos given its esteemed capability, strong practicality points, and its winning ride and comfort. The Terra does qualify as an ideal family vehicle, and we’ve listed down a couple of reasons why.
It’s got space for 7 passengers
Like its competitors, the Nissan Terra does have third-row seats, allowing it to carry up to 7 passengers. While front- and middle-row occupants do get a good amount of leg and headroom, the rear-most seats, on the other hand, are best reserved for kids, though smaller adults can also fit and should be fine when going on short trips.
What’s a unique and standard feature across the Terra range are the one-touch tumble seats that can also be controlled through a convenient button in the front. Notably, this makes ingress and egress in and out of the third-row much easier.
In-car entertainment is also good
You can kill the road trip boredom with the Nissan Terra’s 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that’s available on the VE trim and up. The display is paired with 6-speakers and it has various multimedia functions including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Opt for the VL variant and you get a flip-down monitor that gives your rear occupants that cinematic experience. Along with this is an HDMI port that is located at the third-row.
Its ride and comfort is an absolute treat
One of the main highlights of this SUV has got to be its ride quality which is purely complemented by the rear multi-link coil spring suspension. This gives the Terra a composed and comfortable riding experience even when going through uneven terrain and potholes.
Under the hood is a tried and tested 2.5-liter turbo diesel that could either be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed automatic. Whichever you opt for, the pairing is able to produce 187 hp and 450 Nm of torque. This rewards the Terra with the capable performance in the city, highway, or even in unpredictable conditions, more importantly, it does return good fuel economy numbers. Testing the Terra 4x2 VL AT registered about 7 km/L in bumper to bumper traffic, while a fine Sunday drive with an average speed of 60 km/h boosted its figures to 10 km/L.
VL variants get a suite of Intelligent Mobility safety features
Aside from the standard safety equipment, Nissan has also included a suite of Intelligent Mobility features on the Terra. With VL variants getting Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, an Intelligent rearview mirror, and the Around View Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD).
It looks good
The boxy dimensions of the Nissan Terra sure looks good and it should age gracefully over time. Its body has a fine combination of clean-cut lines stashed with a bit of ruggedness. There’s also an abundance of boomerang details which are applied on the Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), side repeaters, and the taillights.
As for the rims, EL variants come with a set of 17-inch alloys wrapped in 255/65 tires, while the rest of the range gets the turbine-style 18-inch alloys with 255/60 tires. Lastly, the rear spoiler is only available on the VE variant and up.
