Nissan PH Finally Launches Nissan Terra Midsize SUV
Nissan has finally launched the Nissan Terra for the ASEAN region starting with the Philippines, a little over a month after the frame-based midsize SUV made its global debut and went on sale in China. "The new Nissan Terra is the first SUV in the mid-size segment for Nissan in the Philippines," Nissan Philippines said in its statement. "It underlines the company’s commitment to growing the country’s already strong business." The Nissan Terra is a descendant of the Patrol, the Japanese carmaker's tough off-road icon that was originally designed for police and military use and has taken explorers on adventures into unchartered territories, including deserts, plains, and mountainous regions since its beginnings in 1951. "Over 60 years of SUV heritage went into the development of the Nissan Terra," said Ramesh Narasimhan, President and Managing Director of Nissan Philippines. "The new Nissan Terra is designed to give you the confidence to take your family on exceptional urban and outdoor adventures by providing a no-compromise package." The Terra’s reinforced chassis, five-link coil spring rear suspension system, and rigid rear-wheel axle work together to ensure strength, durability, comfort, and convenience. Powering it is the same 2.5-liter YD25 diesel engine used in the Nissan Navara with an output of 190 hp and 450 Nm of torque. Equipped with the 4WD-DIFF lock system, coupled with Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist, drivers have more control over the wheels whenever the Terra goes off the road. The Nissan Terra bears the brand's signature V-motion grille up front, giving it a streamlined look while the "boomerang" LED headlamps accentuate its sharp and commanding appearance. The sleek roof line flows from the front fender to the rear where the tail lights add to its dynamic look. Completing the exterior are 18-inch alloy wheels, designed to create exciting driving experiences both on and off the road.
For the ASEAN market, the Terra seats up to seven people comfortably, with its first-in-class second row one-touch remote fold and tumble seats offering convenience and easy access onto the third-row seats. The Terra also offers one of the highest loading capacities and more rear space. With premium leather seats, advanced air conditioning system, ambient lights, and overhead entertainment, the new Nissan Terra allows passengers to relax with ease and style. The Nissan Terra offers Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies that are designed to bring safety and convenience to both driver and passengers. The technologies include Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, and Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection. The vehicle is also as intelligent as it is tough, with innovations like Smart Rear View Mirror that allow drivers to see images from a camera mounted at the back. Beginning June 1, 2018, customers may already reserve their vehicles at any Nissan dealership nationwide. The new Nissan Terra will be available in the market by August 20, 2018, in five variants with the following prices:
|Terra 2.5L VL 4x4 7AT||PHP2.096 million|
