Nissan launched the new Nissan Terra premium SUV in Thailand yesterday, featuring upgraded safety, entertainment, and luxury features.
Launched digitally on Nissan’s Facebook page and website, the New Terra celebrated its unveiling with a warm, family-focused launch video featuring Nissan Thailand’s President, Isao Sekiguchi, making a personal delivery of the very first new Nissan Terra to a family in Bangkok.
Featuring Nissan’s ‘unbreakable’ vehicle frame design philosophy, the new Terra’s exterior features C-shaped quad LED signature headlamps, a totally redesigned rear, a generous dose of chrome and silver accents, and 18-inch alloy rims.
Inside, the seats are more comfortable, thanks to the upgrades to the seat cushions and backrest. The space between the passenger compartment and rear luggage is fully adjustable through its special design, allowing for the second and third rows to be reconfigured into a variety of styles.
Powering the new Nissan Terra is a 2.3-litre twin-turbo YS23DDTT diesel engine producing 190 hp and 450 Nm of torque, which is paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission.
It also features a 4×4 (4WD) system that allows the driver to easily change from two-wheel drive (2H) to four-wheel drive mode with the flick of a rotor switch near the SUV’s center console.
Safety features include Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Around View Monitor (equipped with Moving Object Detection) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The Intelligent Driver Alertness serves as another layer of precaution, especially helpful during long distance journeys.
Other standard features include a Bose Premium Audio system, front and side Acoustic Glass, NissanConnect smartphone connectivity via Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 9-inch touch screen, Voice Recognition, an 11-inch screen with HDMI or Smart TV stick connectivity, five USB ports (Type A and C), wireless charging, and an electronic tailgate with Auto Lift Gate sensor for added convenience.
That being said, the new Nissan Terra is available in four colours – White Pearl, Brilliant Silver, Black Star, and Twilight Gray.
Whether the Terra will be sold in Malaysia remains unknown, and our guess is that it will not make it here as the model was never sold in our market.
