Nissan has launched the new Terra frame-based SUV in South East Asia on a plain between two majestic volcanos at Clark in the Philippines.

After its launch in China in April, the Philippines is the second market worldwide to receive the vehicle, with deliveries starting from August 2018. The Terra will be available in Thailand and Indonesia during this year, with the markets of Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam to follow.
The new Nissan Terra – a name derived from the Latin word for Earth – will be built at Nissan’s production hub in Thailand for the South East Asian market. It combines top-in-class engine performance with spacious comfort and advanced driving technology.
“The new Nissan Terra is built on our more than 60 years of SUV heritage, which includes iconic models such as the Nissan Patrol,” said Ashwani Gupta, senior vice president for Nissan’s Light Commercial Vehicle business. “The Nissan Terra design is both capable and practical, reliable for everyday use while also giving our customers the ability to unhook from daily life and undertake adventure.”
Seating seven people comfortably, the Terra comes with a full flat second-row seat folding and tumbling function, making it ideal for urban but also off-road adventures with family and friends.
It 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 aren’t compromised by its strength and durability.
The YD25 diesel engine offers the best acceleration in its class, ensuring a smooth yet powerful drive, with its 190 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque.
The vehicle also features advanced technologies called Nissan Intelligent Mobility include Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning and Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection. The Nissan Terra is the first SUV with the Smart Rear View Mirror, allowing drivers unobstructed views from a camera mounted at the back.
Along with safety technologies comes increased control, with a 4WD-DIFF lock system and Hill Start Assist. Hill Descent Control helps maintain speed control in steep downhill driving.
The vehicle is ideal for the region as its top ground clearance, at 225 millimeters, reduces the risk of damage from rough, uneven roads and from driving in flooded areas.
