Nissan’s entry in the compact SUV segment, the Terrano, is getting a facelift that is likely to be launched in India next month. The Terrano, which is based on the same platform as the Renault Duster, has not really clicked with the buyers.
The Japanese manufacturer has moved only 256 units out of showrooms in January 2017. In comparison, Renault has been able to sell 1279 units of Duster whereas Hyundai has sold 7918 Cretas in the same month.
Refreshing the Terrano may just be the last ditch effort from Nissan to revive the car’s sales.
Also expected are ABS and dual airbags as standard safety equipment on the new Terrano. The Indian government will make the two features mandatory on every new car soon and Nissan will not want to catch itself off-guard by such a move.
The Terrano, with new looks and features, may come in costlier than the current car on sale, whose prices start from Rs 9,99,000.
