I think you have your answers in those queries. Compact SUVs don't have the power or the frames to support taller, bigger bodies & at the same time provide similar dynamics of bigger vehicles. We have many examples of Indian car makers making big, tall MUVs and SUVs that rock n roll like hell on the highways. Ecosport is a great car to drive because the designers have not added anything more than what a 100PS(approx) engine can take around.
And that is why I try not to park next to a Fortuner

Surprised you got all those accessories from the dealer for 16k! How much are the leather seat covers?

I dont have the price breakup, the dealer is a known family friend so I am sure it was discounted somewhere.

Update: The Reverse Camera is not the Official Nissan one, they dont have those in stock yet so I am not taking it until it comes in.

Even he said that in the future, having NON Nissan equipment can cause issues with Warranty with certain dealers, obviously not the one I am getting the car from.

Official NISSAN reverse sensor (audible only) are 3k. Worth it?

I believe the 3K one has 3 sensors. Do cross verify.

I'd recommend the one with 4 sensor. I have on my Duster. It is pretty sensitive. Beeps for a little plant as well and rear coverage is good.

The sensor activates on slotting reverse gear. The display starts at a distance of 1.6meters and the beep pitch keeps going higher as the car closes in to the obstruction. I can go up to 0.3, my comfort zone ends there

Yes, the 3k one only has 3 sensors. I confirmed with them and also saw it at the show room before so I can recall that.

Ill check with them on the 4 sensor part, otherwise Ill get it aftermarket.

Mine cost total 4.8K for the sensor and display including fittings. I got it done at Renault at the time of delivery itself. The display is setup on far left corner on the Dashboard, so is convenient while reversing and watching the ORVM.

Weird but are these accessories car-specific? When I bought my Sunny last year, I got a NISSAN reverse sensor with 4 sensors and a small rectangular display unit on the dash which highlights the distance (picks up objects 2 meters away) for ~4.5k. This one is very effective and looks good too with the orange backlit display on the display unit. Surprised this is not being offered with Terrano. See Page 3 of this thread for snaps of the unit http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...-update-3.html (Bronze Grey Nissan Sunny Diesel - 6 month / 5000 km update)

@ Hillman, was this an official Renault accessory? Else you can get the same stuff much cheaper. I got one installed in my new i10 for ~1800 at Reliance Autozone, HSR Layout and it works like a charm. Came with 4 sensors and a display like the one in your snap and is sensitive from ~1.25 metres onwards. Hyundai was selling the same one at around 4000 at the dealership !

It doesn't say its an official accessory anywhere, even on the warranty card or booklet. The fitting was done at Trident Renault and the accessory team mentioned it will be covered under 12 months warranty similar to repairs as the fitting is done at authorized dealership. The fit an finish is perfect.

It was a necessary add-on given the size of the vehicle and blind spots at the rear. I wanted to have it before taking the wheels.
After spending close to 12L, it wasn't wise to risk warranty for a small saving on a car just out of showroom.

Here is the one linked on Nissan's official accessories list.



According to them, its a 3 sensor install, but some other dealerships say its a 4 sensor install.

Anyway, ill hold off until I get some info after taking delivery.

EDIT: Dealership said Originally it will have only 3 sensors, but the accessory will include 4.

If your car came with integrated reverse parking (3 sensors). i'd keep it that way. The holes to be cut for 4 sensor have different position compared to 3 sensor. It may leave sore spots on the bumper.

I got the same fitted on my fathers micra cvt. It has 4 sensors and displays an indication where the obstruction is, i.e. it shows signals of 1 or 2 sensors when an object is near those sensors. Hope you got the point. Thanks.

To all my fellow BHPians in Bangalore, I am planning to book Terrano and am not sure from which Dealer should I go with - Shawar or Surya. Requesting anyone who has recently booked one to share the booking experience and possible things to watch out for.

Mods- Please delete the post if this is not the appropriate thread for this post.

Thanks.
