Default Re: Nissan Terrano : Official Review

All,

After a long search, we have just finalized the terrano 85 Top end model for our next car. We are replacing the old fiesta with this car.

The main reasons for shortlisting Terrano were -
1. External styling and relatively better interiors than Duster.
2. Ride quality and Handling over bad roads.
3. Drivability and low end torque coming from a fiesta TDCI.
3. Ground clearance.
4. Good width for 3 at the back even though we have to compromise on the leg room compared to a s-cross or Honda city. Excellent back support/recline.

From all reviews including ours, brakes are decent but not the best. The booking experience has been good so far.

I can live with basic plastics but hope that the Nissan aftersales will not be bad. See a lot of action/advertisement on TV. Hope they will take care of this also.

is there an ownership review on Terrano? I am not able to find one.

There is no proper ownership. I have owned an 85 for the last one year it's been pretty good so far service interval is just once a year or so. When compared to creta I feel it's slightly wider .
Do check it out if interiors are your primary. The car is consistently giving mileage of 18 or the ra bouts in mixed driving cycle. Wishing you all the best

For all the negative feedback about Nissan and its service, here is a report from Motoroids today about the proactive approach of Nissan post the floods.

Quote starts "The Nissan workshops in Chennai are all set to help customers and speed up the process of repair work of vehicles damaged by flood. The company has rolled out a special toll free helpline number 0124-6628111 to cater specifically to customers in Chennai.
Nissan Motor India reached out to more than 8,000 customers in Chennai through SMS, emails and social media posts to inform them about the services and re-opening of workshops. They are helping customers through social media platforms by providing them with tips to avoid consequential damages which may not be covered under insurance. Dealers are also operating mobile vans to attend to customers at their residences. " Quote ends.

Must say well done and showing the way for others to follow.

Had been for a trip to Pondicherry. The car performed well, had got the tank filled to the brim before leaving. After 628kms it still showed half a tank. The capacity is more than what's claimed. The MID is showing 18.8 as mileage after mainly highway driving. What have the people here got would be glad about some inputs

I have driven around 9000+ kms in my 85 PS Terrano so far, done few long drives of 800-900 kms each.

Mileage Summary:
Highway long drives with A/C - 18 kms/ltr
Best so far - 19 kms/ltr
Lowest on long drives with A/C - 16 kms/ltr
Lowest in Bangalore city traffic with A/C - 13.5 kms/ltr

Once MID showed 24.3 till few kms and went on reducing to under 20

Hey Guys,
I apologise if this has already been answered, but i had a few doubts regarding the Nissan Terrano.
We recently bought the vehicle, its about 3 months old.
Model -> XV 110 PS.
Color -> White.

I find the gear box a little clunky, is it just me coming from a Petrol Verna or is the Gear Box a little hard ?

Also the clutch is a little hard, is it a common problem with the vehicle ?

Hi congratulations first. I own a 85xl plus and do find it heavy in traffic so yours must be heavier still.

Clunkiness am not sure exactly what you mean though? Definitely verna petrol has a smoother box.

Thanks for the quick response , by clunky i mean that it takes a little bit of effort to put the gear in place relative to normal petrol cars ( since my experience stops there , first diesel car and all )

I upgraded from a petrol Wagon R. Yes even I did feel a difference. However, I would not call mine 'clunky'. For me Wagon R was moving a stick in an empty bucket, where as Terrano is like moving a stick in a bucket full of water. I think I got used to it within the first 15-20 minutes.
If you mean 'not smooth' when you say clunky, then that is certainly not how it is supposed to be. Maybe a visit to your dealer should clear things out? Best way to confirm is try shifting gears of another Terrano.

My baby too is 110PS. Yes the clutch is on the heavier side (especially when compared to 85PS). It IS a bit of a pain in city traffic. At signals, I slip into neutral with my foot on the brake. This was told to me before I made the purchase, but for me the sheer raw power of 110PS on the highway is worth what is now a minor inconvenience of the heavy clutch.

Hi was just curious as to what made you go for terrano over the competition like creta and s cross. They cost around the same and have a more extensive service network than nissan who seem to be twiddling their thumbs and releasing more brands than cars. The place has changed when compared to 2014 when I brought mine so

Yea RedTerrano , i completely agree with you , and i did speak to the Center regarding the issues , They assured me that the vehicle was exactly how it was meant to be and got forward a test drive Terrano which had done 40k+ Km to prove a point , now i dont know if i should believe them or just admit that the car will be and should be a little rough to handle relative to the Petrol Vehicles that i had in the past, also maybe change the way i drive a little bit, btw how much mileage does your car give you ?

Hi Terra85,
That is actually a great question, so the model of the Creta that i would have wanted , would have cost me about a Lakh more , in the long run it doesnt make a difference ( talking about loans here ), but for some reason it just didnt appeal to me, what made things worse was the fact that the Hyundai showrooms ensured me that there would be no deals and a min 3 month waiting period on the SX model.
So many negatives, i can understand that the car would have been smoother and what not.
But the butch looks of the Terrano really attracted me, plus Nissan abroad has a great name. ( Sadly it doesn't work the same way here )
The test drive of the Terrano was also very nice.
You can say love at first sight.
