If we can rely on the latest reports, the 2020 Nissan Terrano is about to come with some pretty interesting novelties. The popular Romanian SUV, known as Dacia Duster comes under Nissan’s badge, particularly in Asian countries. Differences between the two models are mostly visual.
However, it looks like the Japanese manufacturer is about to bring a couple of upgrades. It looks like we are about to see a new, sportier version of the popular SUV. Other than that, things are about to remain pretty much the same. Count on a familiar design and features. We expect to see the new model by the end of the year.
2020 Nissan Terrano Exterior
In terms of the exterior design, the Terrano comes with a couple of distinctive details, compared to Duster. Of course, most of them are located at the front, where you can notice a completely different face, based on Nissan’s styling philosophy. Still, you won’t see a V-Motion grille, but rather something closer to previous generations of the popular Japanese brand. A couple of differences can be fount on the rear end as well.
When it comes to the new, sports version of the 2020 Nissan Terrano, it looks like we are about to see a couple of visual additions, in terms of new graphics, new wheels and several more details. At this point, it is still unclear whether we are about to see mechanical upgrades or not.
On the inside, the 2020 Nissan Terrano should remain pretty much the same. Except for the steering wheel, the rest of the cabin is pretty much the same as in the Duster. That means rather functional than stylish interior design. After all, this is an affordable SUV, so you can’t expect some spectacular quality. Most of the parts are made of hard plastics, While the dashboard looks the same as in budget cars like Logan or Sandero. Still, you can count on a decent amount of tech features, including touchscreen interface, Bluetooth, USB ports and other connectivity goodies.
When it comes to the interior space, things are pretty decent as well. The front row is particularly generous, though the seats could feature a little bit more support. The rear seats aren’t that comfortable and generous in space. Moreover, adult passengers won’t feel that nice in the second row.
When it comes to the new sporty version, things will probably remain pretty much the same, with the exception of new color schemes and similar things.
2020 Nissan Terrano Engines
One of the biggest novelties we have recently seen in this crossover is a new 1.3-liter turbo engine, which delivers up to 150 horsepower. Therefore, we don’t expect bigger changes for the next year. Besides this, most powerful engine in the lineup, you can count on familiar units, including a good-old 1.6-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder, which is good for about 115 horsepower. Diesel lover can get a well-known 1.5-liter dCi, which delivers around 115 horsepower.
When it comes to transmission, a new turbo-four is even available with a dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The rest of the lineup comes with either 5- or 6-speed manual, depending on the engine choice.
2020 Nissan Terrano Release Date and Price
Despite potential changes, we don’t expect to see 2020 Nissan Terrano earlier than usual. It should hit the market late in the year. Base models will go around 13.500 dollars.
