We’ve seen what it can do, we’ve witnessed how it does it, and we’ve conquered tough and rough terrains with it. This seven-seat newcomer from Nissan is nothing but psyched up to shake the entire midsize SUV segment. Darn right, you guessed it – we’re talking about the Nissan Terra and it’s finally in the Philippines.
One of the most awaited, well-hyped, and freshest vehicles has successfully landed on our shores. After a three-month waiting game since it launched in the local market, the first batch of the all-new Nissan Terra midsize SUV are now ready to be distributed to Nissan Philippines’ dealerships across the country. That’s plus one to the local midsize SUV scene – a well-contending nameplate.
When we say well-contending, think of a young boxer matching up against a lineup of still-capable veterans. That’s because the Terra has a fleet of features that might be a little hard to go up against with. Starting from the handsome looks derived from its pickup brother, the Navara, you’ll know right away that it’s downright serious – especially with that V-Motion grille. This Navara-mood transcends smoothly to the interior, as you’d get the same feel inside, which is great.
However, the exterior and interior are just the tip of it all. What’s most anticipated about this midsize SUV are the series of features it has inside. Nissan decided that if they’re going to unleash something in a segment that’s already being played by giant nameplates, it’s better be beyond ‘good.’ With that, the Terra boasts the latest technology of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility Suite.
With Nissan Intelligent Mobility Suite, you get all the ‘good’ in goodies and, of course, the ‘safe’ in safety. The technology suite includes forward collision warning, distance control, blind spot intervention, and back-up intervention which features sensors spread around the vehicle.
The same 2.5-liter turbo diesel engine found under Navara’s hood powers the Terra. It is paired to either a seven-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. This mill has already been proven and tested, as we have driven the Terra through, in and out the muddy tracks of Mt. Pinatubo. The 190 hp and 450 Nm of torque mill demonstrated what it’s promised to do; what more in the city?
The Nissan Terra midsize SUV is offered with a price tag ranging from P1,499,000 to P2,096,000 for the top-range variant. The exact date of customer deliveries is yet to be announced, but we’re guessing it would be really, really soon.
