Sales of frame SUV began in the spring of 2018. Since its launch on the market, this SUV has been positioned as a serious competitor for the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. However, to interest buyers in the way that Prado does, the new product has not yet succeeded.

The new frame SUV Nissan Terra shows sales that are much lower than we would like the automaker. In total, since the appearance of the framer in China, local dealers have managed to attach about 17,500 such cars. But his main rival – Toyota Land Cruiser Prado – shows a much better result. Experts say about 55,000 SUVs sold. A similar trend is observed in the Indonesian car market: sales of Nissan Terra are almost five times lower than sales volumes of Prado.

Recall, as a “donor” for the Nissan Terra made pickup Navara. The novelty borrowed from it a V-shaped grille, head optics with built-in DRL sections, as well as a brutal front bumper with a large air intake.

The interior is also quite a lot of borrowing: the center console is similar to Navara, a dashboard with a color display, a similar climate control unit and multimedia with a large touchscreen. As engines, customers are offered a 2.5-liter gasoline engine with a return of 184 hp and the same volume 190-hp turbodiesel. Transmission and drive also suggest a choice: a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission; rear-wheel drive or 4WD with differential lock.

 Among the advantages of the Nissan Terra can be called a rich list of options and additional equipment. For example, such an SUV gets six airbags, leather seats, a panoramic electric sunroof, a number of driver’s assistants, and more. In total, six complete sets of Nissan Terra are available for purchase, the cost of the most affordable of them is 146,800 yuan.
