As shown on the clip, it’s got newly-designed leather seats and steering wheel, a larger multi-information display at the center of the gauge cluster, an electronic parking brake, a new infotainment system, and it still retains the large LCD monitor hanging on the ceiling. With its redesigned dashboard and additional creature comforts, the Nissan Terra should make the midsize SUV battle even more interesting.
Exterior-wise, the new Nissan Terra also sports an updated exterior styling that’s reminiscent of the Nissan X-Terra being sold on Middle Eastern markets. Both the front and rear gets a revolutionary change, with it having a different fascia complemented by the new grille, bumper, and headlights. Notably, it appears that the hood has been reculpted as well given its different shape. Changes on the side are quite subtle, but you’ll notice it especially the new set of alloy wheels. The rear, on the other hand, also gets a new pair of taillights, an additional chrome garnish, and a revised bumper.
Given that this is only a refresh, it could still be powered with the Nissan’s tried and tested 2.5-liter turbo diesel engine that churns out a healthy 187 hp and 450 Nm of torque. Presumably, the said mill could either be paired with a 6-speed MT or a 7-speed automatic.
We also sense that Nissan Philippines will probably add more safety features on its Intelligent Mobility package. Like the Middle Eastern-spec model, it might now come with forward-collision warning along with the other retained equipment from the outgoing model such as the Intelligent rearview mirror and the Around View Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD).
Its launch could happen anytime soon, with the refreshed midsize SUV being spotted locally during early August. Based on the updates, it seems that Nissan has been listening well to its consumers.
