http://indianautosblog.com/2013/08/n...variants-93319

according to indianautosblog and oncars..terrano will not come with multimedia infotainment system and steering mounted audio and bluetooth controls

if they planning to bring similar variants as that of duster whats the point in scaling up the price?

i guess they might price slightly lesser than that of the duster.ecosport effect or declining sales of duster

From the online pictures, it looks like the exteriors of the Terrano may impress you. But sadly the interiors are still the same as Duster (except for some air vent change, head unit, etc.) and that's a sore point (for me).
Same with one of my colleagues, he has a W6 and for him there have been no issues however one of my neighbours W8 is almost on a monthly trip to the A.S.S.

And after driving the hulk like a Scorpio for 5 years, I am reluctant to go for a sedan, so the wait continues. XUV for the time being is on hold Yet Again as I no longer have the patience to relive the nightmares of the initial first year of Scorpio.

But I have a healthy respect for the Nissan brand, and would like to see what is being offered finally as Terrano.

If budget permits, I recommend the Yeti. It will definitely not give you the hulk feel like Scorpio or XUV 5OO but its a different class of compact and capable mini SUV. You can check the various Yeti owner reviews in this forum to see how happy they are with the choice (some of them were even considering up to Fortuner but still ended up with Yeti). It has handsome discounts on the Elegance 4x4 as well.

From the rumours and speculations here, seems like Terrano may not come with some features (entertainment and utility) that even the Duster today has. The biggest problem with Nissan today is the HAI that exists between them and their dealers. It's something worth thinking about.

Also at the additional price the Terrano is speculated to come at, I would have at least preferred 6 airbags to be given against additional tech features. That would have been a lucrative feature to make me consider, when I'm expect to pay upwards of 13L on road for the top end (BLR).

The few that could afford the Duster but still chose the EcoSport are the folks that I think will consider reversing their decision(s) due to waiting periods. Otherwise, the majority of buyers who went with EcoSport importantly for being a perceived value for money product, won't easily switch to a vehicle which has lesser features and shell ~1.0 - 2.5 lakhs more.. They might choose another product (probably a sedan) for about the same cost. Just a guess.

I don't know why Nissan choosing this color to showcase this car. Looks are subjective, but i still feel this color is very dull, especially for digital advertisements.

I was expecting a Duster + Improved interiors, but disappointed to see Nissan focused more on exteriors. Wish Duster version 2.0 comes out soon with better interiors and off course with a price correction.

I'm going against the tide and saying that the Terrano may just be priced below the Duster. There's no official word from Nissan on the pricing yet, and apart from the cosmetic changes the Terrano is actually missing a feature or two from the Duster. Who knows maybe Nissan is trying to get its game right and have learnt a thing or two from the success of the Ecosport!

Actually there has been, from the initial launch. Nissan released that the Terrano will be priced-sub 10 lakhs 'onwards'. I just remembered as I'd posted a page or two prior to this.. The onwards concerns because that indicates prices will exceed 10 lakhs ex-showroom. Doubt it's going to be cheaper than the Duster, though I'd like to believe it will be.

Moneycontrol also mentioned in their news article that sub-10 lakhs will be pre-launch price. Can't understand what Nissan is thinking/planning..

A media drive on a Public road would require the vehicles to have registration numbers. Its just a "Duster' under the skin so Nissan would like to highlight the external changes.

The number plates just hold the name. This could be for an ad-shoot.

It is not a question of budget, Yeti was never a consideration on account of its looks.

One concern with Nissan is a shortage of dealers and the nearest one to me would be around some 30 kms away.

So there is still a lot to think about

Thanks for sharing. Slightly looks odd with a sharp front stuck to the otherwise bulbous shape of the car. Especially the white with no fog lamps looks bad to me.

Hi Sukumar,

In the pictures that you have posted, i see a call button on the center console i.e the audio unit, unlike duster can it be that the phone control stalk mas moved out and the Bluetooth phone pairing is inbuilt into the audio system, Any idea on that feature?

Also i happen to notice the same in this overdrive walk through video




And being more premium at its price point i don't think Nissan will remove such an useful feature. Though many others like seats etc were added.
