Last I've read. Renault has no plans of a new vehicle or Duster refresh for India in 2014. They will be consolidating their product line and strategy.

But then in a competitive market, you never know.

Good for consumers.

And I doubt an engine with more torque at the low end will help balance that figure more. But ya, I too think If it gets released, they might only offer it in the top end model like you said - similar to how they have spaced the diesel engines.


I took delivery of the nissan terrano Petrol early this week. My monthly usage is just about 350kms normally, as I work from home.

The car seemed bit stiff and slightly sluggish in the beginning but feels better already. The mileage was showing 6.6km/l when I drove home the car(19kms done) from the dealer... But now its steadily increasing and touched the 7.0km/l now(odometer showing 171kms now) with A/C in the city. Hopefully it will touch 9.0 soon.

There is not much at low RPM and first 2 gears but its getting better. I will make a report soon once I get my alloys(ordered the alloys of the top end) and break-in the car a bit more. But yeah, no oomph at the lower end but enough once we get past that.

Congrats Vij for your Terrano. Your feedback will be awaited in your ownership report

You might want to reset trip meter. It will reset your fuel consumption. Right now it is including the earlier figures, which seem to be low, for calculating your mileage.

It is time for you to initiate the ownership thread, as all this info is going to be useful to track. I should hopefully join in by month end

Well thank God I canceled my booking seeing that delivery ain't gonna happen by anytime that I wanted... but getting a refund was a big hassle only after did I raise the issue with Nissan customer care. It was a breeze after that but I don't think its a practical approach on a daily basis... its high time Nissan pull up their errin dealers.

Congratulations! You look to be the first in Team BHP to buy a Terrano. Looking forward to your review on how it compares with Duster on Interiors and Sheet metal. I am told that Duster has a very thin sheet metal that buckles easily.

Ok, so it has so far been a bad experience with Shahwar Nissan. Didn't want to drag this into my ownership thread, so letting it out now.

No test drive - I was promised a test drive (at home) and have had none so far. On checking they said the showroom vehicle would not go out for TD rounds. I agreed as it was not something I had asked for

Date of deliver - Was promised for pre-Diwali. Again this date was not on my request, but came from them. Never happened anyways.

No call backs - Not pro-active. From the date of pre-booking at Queens road showroom I have had to call them for updates on car variants, pricing, and recently even for status of deliver.

No coordination - There is lack coordination and ownership within the Sales team. I have had to explain the same facts & figures to multiple members in the same team. And they somehow made sure to give me conflicting answers. This included purchase of insurance from outside, disbursement of loan from the banker, purchase of accessories, DOD etc. At times I almost felt as part of their organization, working with the insurance company and bank staff on their behalf

Anyways DOD is this weekend. Hope they do not drag this any further. I am taking my wife along ...just in case there is a fist fight

Mod Note: Post Edited. Smiley usage is restricted to two per post on Team-BHP. Please do NOT use more than 2 smileys in a post.

Saw a Terrano yesterday evening... it was a XL variant with after market 17" chrome alloys. Must say that the front appears classy as compared to Duster, but at the rear it looks a size smaller, maybe because of the tail-lights, which are bigger in this case.

Well, My Terrano(Petrol) is still waiting for the alloys. Its been 4 weeks since payment and they have still not delivered them and have no estimated date. I love the design of the company alloys. Do you guys think I could get the similar looking ones outside?

+1 to that. I thought it was just me imagining it. The Terrano does look smaller, to me both front and back. Could be the V design at the front grill and the triangular tail lamps create that visual effect.

The butch look is faint and looks more refined.

Yes - the Terrano profile is similar but more refined - and like you say looks smaller.. Perhaps also because of the lesser height.

I bought the Nissan Terrano 85 PS Diesel variant. I had booked it during the pre-booking period and received the vehicle before Deepawali. The dealership experience(Surya Nissan - Bangalore) was not so good and you need to push them for all aspects of a new car delivery.
The car itself is great to drive both in the city and on the high way.

Many congrats and wishing you many happy miles with the ride!

Please post an ownership log of the ride. AFAIK, we do not have a single ownership thread on the forums for the Terrano yet - you've the privilege of posting the first one!
