After a successful launch in China, the Nissan Terra is on its way to the Philippines where the marketing campaign of the new SUV has commenced.
Nissan Terra, is based on the third generation Nissan Navara. In China, it is the successor to the Nissan Paladin, also known as Nissan Xterra. It was spied testing in the Philippines in January earlier this year.
The Nissan Terra is 4,882 mm long, 1,850 mm wide and 1,835 mm high. It has a 2,850 mm wheelbase and a best-in-class 225 mm ground clearance. In China, it’s a strict 5-seater, but the Philippines and other markets may get it in a 7-seat version either as standard or as an option.
Another expected difference between the version sold in China and other markets is the engine. China gets the Nissan Terra with the QR25 2.5 liter petrol engine that produces 135 kW (184 PS) and 251 Nm of torque, mated to either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission. In the Philippines and other markets, Nissan may offer the Nissan Navara’s YS23DDT 2.3 liter diesel engine, YS23DDTT 2.5L diesel engine and/or YD25DDTi 2.5L diesel engine.
Boomerang LED headlamps with LED DRLs, 18-inch alloy wheels, boomerang LED tail lights, electric sunroof, Zero Gravity front seats, 8-way electric adjustment for driver’s seat and dual-zone automatic climate control are among the key features of the Nissan Terra. The mid-size SUV is equipped with a number of advanced safety and driver assistance features as well, such as Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning and Intelligent Emergency Braking.
The Nissan Terra will compete against the Ford Everest, Toyota Fortuner, Chevrolet Trailblazer, and Isuzu MU-X in the Philippines.
