Nissan dropped a bomb on us by launching its new SUV, the Terra. The Terra was first showcased in China, where everything is preferred in XXL size, similar to the US auto market. Nissan latest 7-seater draws a lot of inspiration from the Navara pick-up. But on this particular dimension front, Nissan is slightly behind the other SUVs available in the market. It sure would not be easy for the Terra, especially with prime contenders like the Toyota Fortuner, the Isuzu MUX, the Ford Everest, and the Mitsubishi Montero Sport. For the sake of convenience, we have just compared it with the highest selling SUV in the segment, the Toyota Fortuner. We feel that the Nissan Terra is a bit staid in comparison to the flashy Toyota Fortuner. The Terra takes a more no direct departure from the pick-up’s styling as well. The rear of the car is a bit funkier than the front. All this being said, the Toyota Fortuner still aces the styling department. Inside the cabin, the Toyota Fortuner falls a bit behind. It doesn’t look like it’s not a premium cabin but the Nissan Terra’s upholstery feels a bit better. There is also the modern day gadgetry that one will associate with a car of this size. A touchscreen audio system that is Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto compatible, dual zone climate control, powered driver’s seat, and various storage spaces around the cabin are common to both. The Terra’s 2,850mm wheelbase is bigger than the Fortuner’s 2,745mm. The Terra is also longer at 4,885mm compared to the Toyota’s 4,795mm. This should significantly affect the last row seating space, and we assume the Nissan to be a tad more spacious than the Fortuner concerning the long wheelbase. The Nissan Terra also gets slightly bigger tyres at 18-inch whereas the Fortuner receives it as optional. Both are ladder-on-frame SUVs, and we expect the ride quality to be similar. However, while the Fortuner’s motor is a tad noisy at full clip, we expect the Nissan’s unit to be a bit more refined in the cabin. Both are expected to be top-heavy SUVs, and it will not be advisable to take turns at high speeds with either of the two. You can order these SUVs either with a rear wheel drive configuration or with four-wheel drive. Both the SUVs also get a low ratio. Speaking of which, the Toyota Fortuner employs a 2.4-litre diesel motor that is good for 147 PS and 400 Nm. There is a lone 6-speed automatic that is offered here. In contrast, the Nissan Terra has a bigger 2.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that makes 190 PS and 450 Nm. Buyers can choose from either the 6-speed manual and the 7-speed auto. However, given the lower kerb weight of the Fortuner and the lesser power output, it is likely that it will have a higher fuel efficiency. In terms of the 0-100 performance, both the manufacturers haven’t quoted a number, and neither are there any top speed claims. If you were to ask us, both the SUVs should safely give around 12 kmpl and have a top speed of 180 kmph. In terms of safety, The Nissan Terra and Toyota Fortuner offer a lot of active and passive safety features to protect their passengers. Both vehicles feature ABS (anti-lock brakes), EBD (electronic brake-force distribution), stability control, and a number of airbags. The Terra lacks the knee airbag of the Fortuner, but the rest, such as the driver, front passenger, curtain, and side airbags are found here. Also, the Fortuner gets disc brakes all around, while the Terra gets drum brakes in the rear. Both vehicles have ISOFIX mounts for child seats, but the Terra lacks speed sensing door locks. The Terra, however, features front and rear parking sensors, while the Fortuner gets them only in the rear. The Terra also gets a nod for including blind spot sensors and lane departure warning, something that the Fortuner lacks. The addition of an around view monitor on the Terra and the smart rear view mirror add another dimension of safety in this category.

According to statistics, most drivers change their car once every six years, which is a pretty long period of time. To take the best out of your car in those six years, to save money and to avoid constant repairing, you’d better avoid ten mistakes many of us make when buying a car. One day you’ll probably decide to sell your car. That’s why you have to consider some important features. According to Paint supplier PPG Industries, white is the most popular car color in the US with 35 percent of all sold vehicles. It is followed by black with 17 percent, and silver and gray that both got a 12 percent popularity. In case you want to purchase some good old German luxury brands such as BMW or Mercedes-Benz, you have to be prepared to pay around $17,800 and $12,900 for ten years of maintenance accordingly. US popular brand Cadillac comes next with an average $12,500 maintenance cost for the same period of time. Additional airbags, a passenger sensing system that can tell the size of the person in the seat and save smaller children in case of a crash, auto-dimming mirrors to reduce the glare coming from headlights at night, head restraints and ABS are some of the things you don’t want to save money at. Make a check-list of features you need to check and think of where you’ll be driving your new vehicle. Try driving on the highway and park in uncomfortable conditions if that’s what you know you’ll have to do in the future. Examine everything to help yourself make the right decision. Don’t be afraid to miss “the deal of a lifetime.” You must have noticed those come up now and then, so you shouldn’t let them pressure you into making a wrong financial decision that will affect your budget for years. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS You don’t think about resale value. 0:32 Car maintenance can be expensive. 1:46 You pay for optional items. 2:50 You buy a brand new car. 3:33 You buy a car that is too big or too small. 4:03 You can’t choose between car’s prestige and technical characteristics. 4:34 You don’t examine the car. 5:19 You miss advantageous offers and discounts. 6:08 You don’t try to lower the price. 6:30 You’re in a hurry. 6:51 SUMMARY -First, the car brand matters: there are brands that are more or less popular among drivers. Second, you need to think about the vehicle specifications and the engine. Third, don’t forget about its color. -Think of how much of your family budget car maintenance can make, and decide if you want to spend that much on your vehicle after you’ve purchased it. -Some drivers don’t smoke inside their cars. In this case, they don’t need an ashtray. An additional corrosion treatment is useless as well because cars already have an anti-corrosion treatment. -The best choice is a car model that is no more than three years old and already well-known. -Try to predict how many times you’re going to travel by car, how many passengers will be there, and so on. -A premium class car will give you better safety, high performance and increased comfort their manufacturers guarantee. -Gather as much information as possible at reliable websites and among your friends, consult an independent specialist, and test drive your chosen car. -The best time to buy a car starts in December and reaches its peak in March. -Try to call or send emails to different dealerships saying you have a better offer and asking if they can beat it. -Spend enough time to gather information, consulting specialists, and weighing the pros and cons.

We can finally confirm that Nissan is building a new SUV, and it's called the Terra.
The Japanese carmaker made the announcement earlier this morning. The Terra is set to make its global debut in China (which will also be the first market to get it) later this year, and will be the first vehicle from Nissan's frame and light commercial vehicle (LCV) division.
Division vice president Ashwani Gupta describes the Terra as a rugged, practical and 'authentic' SUV designed to get anywhere.
"Nissan's frame and LCV business is seeing steady growth, and with our ambitious midterm plan and growing product lineup, we're confident that this growth will continue. It is an exciting time for Nissan. We have the Nissan Terra arriving soon, the award-winning Nissan Navara is now in 133 markets worldwide, and more drivers are purchasing our LCVs around the world," Gupta added.
Official photos reveal a front endowed with large fenders and a muscular fascia, typical midsize SUV proportions, and an overall aesthetic similar to that of the Nissan Navara. The same goes for the interior. Actually, if we're being honest this thing looks a lot like Nissan's popular pickup truck offering--not a bad thing. The company also released a short teaser video on YouTube (see below) showing off the Terra taking on some dirt, mountain twisties, and snow. Nice.
Frankly, the Terra has been an open secret since last year. Photographs of the vehicle have been circulating online for quite some time already, including alleged photos of a Terra unit being tested right here in the Philippines.
Considering our market's strong passion for the midsize SUV segment, we wouldn't be surprised at all if Nissan Philippines brought it over to compete with the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Montero Sport, Isuzu MU-X and Ford Everest. So, is a new contender joining the battle? We hope so.
