All New Nissan Terra - Arriving Soon!
All New Nissan Terra SUV will soon turn heads in Africa
Bold design, spacious interior and advanced technologies make the all-new SUV ready to go anywhere, beyond boundaries
Solidifying its strong presence in the SUV market, Nissan unveiled the all-new Nissan Terra. The tough yet sophisticated vehicle will be seen in South and Sub-Saharan Africa in 2021.
The launch also marked a new milestone in the Nissan NEXT transformation strategy, bolstering the brand’s extensive SUV line-up in the region, while also addressing customer demands in the key D-SUV segment.
The all-new Nissan Terra is designed for the African customer who likes exciting outdoor adventures; with that in mind Nissan aims to bring safety and comfort to empower customers to enjoy even the most rugged escapades.
Built on 70 years of unmatchable Nissan SUV expertise, the all-new Nissan Terra reflects the evolution of four-wheel adventure travel and a growing consumer desire for connection. It effortlessly combines impressive strength with world-class design and built-for-comfort roominess. Underlining this is a bold new design, breakthrough engineering and a suite of cutting-edge Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) technologies, to offer a superior driving experience and adventure-ready confidence for drivers to go ‘beyond boundaries’ and explore new places.
The all-new Nissan Terra delivers a robust four-wheel drive system, including a four-wheel lock, brake limited slip differential and electronic locking rear differential – while leading the class in interior room and comfort.
The SUV’s rugged frame facilitates its durability and practicality, while the future-forward aesthetics are exhibited in the quad LED projector lamps and a bold new V-motion grille. The revised rear and new LED taillights add to the all-new Nissan Terra’s athletic look, reflecting the Nissan Design team’s dynamic and modern philosophy.
The Nissan Terra demonstrates how sophistication and ruggedness can co-exist. We are proud to build a product that offers customers best-in-class riding comfort while also creating a relaxed and quiet setting for togetherness. We believe it will redefine what an SUV in this segment can do, and we are delighted to expand the realm of possibilities for our customers.
The all-new Nissan Terra is a catalyst for new experiences, allowing our customers to connect with the people in their lives, and to confidently ‘Go Anywhere’ together,” explains Ken Lee, Senior Design Director for pickups and frame SUVs. “It addresses a variety of customer needs and all types of terrains as it is both good for city use, and great for an adventure with family and friends. Developed in line with the “unbreakable” frame vehicles design philosophy, it combines masculine solidity with sleek and modern execution.”
The styling of the all-new Nissan Terra was developed at the Global Design studio in Japan. Nissan designers work for various projects side by side allowing them to inspire one another. At 4.9m in length, 1.9m in height and just over 2.1m in width – with a ground clearance of 243 mm – the Nissan Terra looks right at home next to its bigger sibling, the Patrol, and borrows some design elements.
The front face resembles the Patrol with the powerful new V-motion grill, with its thick frame contrasting with the refined horizontal chrome bars within.
The proportions of the all-new Nissan Terra are strong and bold. The hood is tall and horizontal, the body is muscular, and the driver sits up high for a commanding road presence. The overall image is imposing and rugged, but designers added expressions of sophistication and technology. Another layer of sophistication is underlined by the unique C-shaped LED signature headlamps, similar to those of the Patrol, but evolved and interpreted in a new way on the all-new Nissan Terra. The quad LED projector lamps, like ice-cubes, have a high-tech vibe. Each one is intricately framed in its own bezel, showing off an attention to detail.
The front bumper with its unique layers overlapping each other creates an overall protected, yet sophisticated feeling. A combination of this and the sleek, high tech headlamps and powerful grill creates a distinctive front face that looks tough, modern, and upscale. In the rear the width of the vehicle is underlined by the strong horizontal movement of the tail lamps. The wide LED signature rear lamps and the characteristic chrome center finisher further emphasize its strength and width. Like its Patrol sibling, the rear bumper uses squared-off shapes to show that the all-new Nissan Terra is well protected.
The instrument panel has a full-width horizontal design, with its movement stretching from door to door to emphasize the spaciousness of the cabin. The shapes are bold and strong, yet finished in comfortable soft-touch materials. The intuitive touch-screen display dominates the center, with big, user-friendly dial controls for the audio and ventilation functions while the layering of the different materials, including the dynamic silver finisher, adds an extra level of sophistication.
While it was important to make the all-new Nissan Terra look rugged, it was vital that the capability underneath the skin lived up to its design. It is indeed the most capable in its class in a number of categories including acceleration, while achieving a competitive fuel economy.
The Nissan Terra is equipped with a versatile ladder-frame chassis, reinforced to give it greater rigidity for an authentic off-road drive. It also features a five-link coil spring rear suspension system and rigid rear-wheel axle, ensuring that comfort and convenience are not compromised by its strength and durability.
The all-new Nissan Terra will go on sale in Africa in 2021, and detailed specifications and price will be communicated in due course.
