The Terra offers best-in-class ride comfort, thanks to NASA-inspired Zero Gravity front row seats that assist in reducing fatigue on those long family trips.
Take On Any Adventure
Haasbroek adds that: “While it was important to make the all-new Nissan Terra look bold and strong, it was vital that the performance capability lived up to its design.”
The 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.
Powering the all-new Terra is a four-cylinder diesel engine with a seven-speed automatic transmission. The turbo diesel engine delivers 140kW /188 hp and 450Nm of torque that ensures an exciting drive with speed and acceleration.
The SUV also features an “On The Fly 4X4” dial system that allows drivers to quickly shift from two-wheel drive to a 4x4 drive – providing maximum fuel efficiency on the highway for navigating any weather and road conditions with peak control.
The vehicle also includes Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control to give you maximum driving confidence. Also included are Smart features like Brake Limited Slip Differential and Electronic Locking Rear Differential, which delivers equal power to the rear wheels to boost traction.
Having a strong and dependable SUV doesn’t mean passengers miss out on comfort and modern features. The all-new Terra offers best-in-class interior space, has an amphitheater-style seat layout on the second and third row and the best-in-class interior volume.
The first-class treatment continues with individual climate controls for each row. At high speeds, the cabin stays quiet thanks to significant sound-deadening efforts around the engine compartment.
“It was also important to make it as easy as possible for all members of the family to get in and out of the rear seats with a remote fold-down second row feature”, says Haasbroek.
The all-new Terra’s 60/40 split-folding second row and a 50/50 split third row give plenty of cargo-carrying options, while folded-down the second and third rows create a completely flat cargo floor.
It also provides seamless connectivity to your smartphone, equipped with go-to apps such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Passengers can keep all their gadgets powered up with wireless charging as well as USB ports, including USB-C. Additionally, NissanConnect brings Bluetooth, navigation and more to the driving experience.
Several active safety systems in the Nissan Terra also make it the best SUV for family adventures. Nissan’s Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection is a class-exclusive feature in the all-new SUV. It gives a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle’s surroundings which is perfect for backing up and parallel parking and to detect any moving objects.
“These advanced safety features along with the all-new Terra’s on-and off-road capability, comfort and the latest technology are a perfect match for today’s adventure-seeking SUV families,” Haasbroek concluded.
