Overview

In the Philippines market, Nissan had a huge gap between the midsize premium crossover X-Trail and the full-size luxury SUV Patrol. However, it seems that the wait has finally ended, as the much awaited Nissan Terra is finally here. Based on the Navara pickup truck, the Terra is an all-new model which apart from the platform, shares a lot with the Navara, including the interior layout and engine option. However, as expected, it is much more premium and comfortable over the Navara, with the seven-seating layout offered as standard. The Terra SUV is in the same league as the Toyota Fortuner, Isuzu mu-X, and Ford Everest.

The Nissan Terra in the Philippines is offered with the sole powertrain option of a 2.5-litre diesel engine. However, you do get two variants on offer – while the rear wheel drive version comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox, the other variant offers four-wheel drive with a 7-speed automatic gearbox. Currently, the Terra is developed specifically for the Asian markets, which do include both the right-hand drive and left-hand drive ones. 

Interior & Features

It is on the inside, where the resemblance of Terra with the Navara becomes much more significant. You do get the same dashboard and center console layouts from the Navara, which means that the Terra welcomes you with a wide and welcoming dashboard, which tapers down smoothly towards the center. The three-spoke steering wheel is much different from other SUVs of Nissan but has the same familiar design layout of silver garnishing towards the sides with steering mounted audio and Bluetooth controls as well as cruise control on either sides.

The center console on the Nissan Terra looks elongated and wide from the center, which gives it a theater-like feel. The touchscreen infotainment system on the Terra looks simple and seems like an aftermarket thought, however, it does pack in all the essentials like displays for reverse camera and navigation, Android Auto and Apple Carplay. The instrument console here on the Terra has been given a slight makeover to make it feel far from being utilitarian. The other significant features of the Terra include leather upholstery, keyless entry and go, 60:40 split seats, eight-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat and dual-zone fully automatic climate control with AC vents for all the three rows. However, it misses out on sunroof which is available in all of its rivals and is gaining huge popularity in this particular segment.

Exterior

As said above, the Terra is based on the very popular Nissan Navara, which already has generated positive reviews for its impressive size as well as practicality. Since it’s a seven seater full size SUV based on the Navara, the Terra does has a terrific road presence owing to its large dimensions. The overall silhouette of the Terra does remind you a lot from the popular global SUV of Nissan, the Patrol. Nissan has took a page from Patrol’s book, and has blessed the Terra with premium V-shaped chrome grille, projector headlamps with daytime running LEDs, machined alloy wheels and chrome garnish on door handles, front bumper, side steps and boot lid, which do give the Terra a much needed premium and luxury appeal. The 18-inch machined alloy wheels too look good and go off well the Terra’s overall personality. The rear chrome embellishment with ‘Terra’ written on it reminds you a lot of its rivals like Fortuner and Everest.

For the Philippines market, Nissan has made some changes to the Terra, the most significant one being the alterations in dimensions. As compared to the China-spec Terra, the one for the Philippines is 2 mm longer and 15mm wider. With these changes, the Terra now measures 4884 mm longer and 1865 mm wider. Also, the ground clearance too has seen a bump from 22 0mm for the China-spec version to 225 mm for the one introduced in the Philippines.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

As compared to the Chinese market, the Nissan Terra for the Philippines gets entirely different powertrain configurations. The Terra here shares its 2.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with the Navara, which happens to be the only engine option for the time being. This engine is powerful enough to produce 190 hp of maximum power and 450 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox in the rear wheel drive variant and a 7-speed automatic torque converter in the four-wheel drive version. Given the Philippines market scenario, the launch of petrol variant in near future seems highly unlikely.

Apart from the engine, the Terra even shares the basic ladder-on-frame chassis with the Navara, as well as all the four wheel drive gizmos such as low-range gear ratios, a 4WD-diff lock system, hill-start assist and hill-descent assist in the four-wheel drive variant, making it equally capable off the tarmac as its SUV rivals as well as the vehicle on which it is based on.

Braking & Safety

In terms of safety features, the Nissan Terra doesn’t disappoint you, for the SUV packs in some really clever functions such as 360 degree camera for all-around visibility, intelligent rear view mirror, blind spot warning, hill start assist, hill descent control and lane departure warning, apart from the usual safety features such as six airbags, ABS with EBD, traction control, reverse parking sensors and stability control. However, the Terra disappoints with the absence of rear disc brakes, which is quite an essential thing for an SUV of this size. The front, though, does feature ventilated disc brakes.

Apart from these, the suspension bits too have been retained from the Navara, with the front of the Terra featuring independent double wishbone with coil spring and stabilizer bar and rear having multi-link with stabilizer bar. Given its large footprint, the turning radius of 6.2 meters is quite acceptable.

    The Nissan Terra is the newest grand passenger SUV in the mid-size space. I have driven Mitsubishi Montero Sport and the Toyota Fortuner and am eagerly waiting to get hold of the Terra as soon as possible. The car looks very muscular from the onset with the exceptionally big hood and beefy appearance. The wheels are quite big (18 inches) Read More
