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.
In many ways, the 4 Series name seems to have been with us for much longer than it has, while the car itself still feels fresh and new, so a mid-life facelift comes as a bit of a surprise. Yet time flies as the 4 Series, name and vehicle, has been around since the summer of 2013. It’s available as a two-door Coupe, two-door Convertible and a four-door coupe called the Gran Coupe, itself taking up to 50% of all 4-Series sales globally. New for the 2017 model is a larger air intake, LED headlights and redesigned daytime running lights at the front. The rear gets a new apron and redesigned taillights with new light graphics. Under the skin, the 4 Series gets stiffer suspension, a wider track (front 14mm, rear 22 mm), improved traction control, better damping and upgraded steering. Overall, it has a lower centre of gravity (Coupe 40 mm, Gran Coupe 30 mm, Convertible 20 mm), to reduce roll and enhance stability. Inside the car, changes include chrome surrounds to the air conditioning and audio controls, high-gloss black trim, double stitching across the instrument panel, while the sports steering wheel is wrapped in new high-quality leather. The switch for the folding hardtop roof in the Convertible and the belt guides now have an electroplated finish as do the door mounted controls in all 4 Series models. Read the full road test here: https://goo.gl/NmAJM7 All 4 Series are available with a choice of three petrol and three diesel engines. The petrol options start with the 2.0-litre 420i that develops 181bhp, while that same engine is tuned to produce 249bhp in the 430i. Fancy a 3.0-litre? Then go for the 440i with 322bhp. Parking in front of the diesel nosel is a 2.0-litre 420d with 187bhp and two variants of a 3.0-litre in the form of the 430d and 435d, producing 254bhp and 309bhp, respectively. Each model either comes with a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed ZF automatic. The auto is also available as a cost option if it’s not fitted as standard. Not happy with rear-wheel drive, then go for xDrive, BMW’s all-wheel-drive system. The Coupe and Convertible are available in Sport and M Sport trims while derivatives include; 430i, 430d, 430d xDrive, 435d xDrive and 440i. Gran Coupe versions get SE trim with either the 420d, 420d xDrive, Sport trim on the 420i, 420i xDrive, and M Sport trim with 430i, 430d, 430d xDrive, 435d xDrive and 440i models. There’s a new interface for the professional navigation, which is standard on M Sport models, while an optional digital cockpit for the instrument binnacle has been introduced as has wireless phone charging. Prices for the updated 4 Series start at £33,555. We’re testing the 440i Gran Coupe in M Sport which costs £45,490. Read the full road test here: https://goo.gl/NmAJM7
Introduced in 2013, the Ghibli became Maserati’s second four-door sedan. Smaller than the Quattroporte, it was developed as a competitor for the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. It’s also the first sedan that slots under the Quattroporte since the four-door version of the Maserati Biturbo was discontinued in 1994. The Ghibli name was revived after a 15-year hiatus, but it’s the first time when it’s being used on a four-door sedan, as both the first- and second-generation models, produced between 1967-1973 and 1992-1998, were offered as two-door coupes and convertibles only. After four years on the market, the third-generation Ghibli received its mid-cycle facelift.
In a strategy that reminds of Ferrari, the Ghibli was renamed the Ghibli GranLusso. The "GranLusso" isn’t new though, as Maserati is already using in on a trim level of the upgraded Quattroporte. The revised sedan made its debut at the Chengdu Motorshow in China with updated bumpers and side skirts, improved aerodynamics, and new features. The drivetrains carry over unchanged, but this is far from surprising given that both the GranTurismo and Quattroporte didn’t get engine upgrades with their facelifts.
Design changes to the Ghibli are far from radical, but they bring the sedan in line with the updated Quattroporte. The most noticeable change is the main grille, which is a tal larger and sports new vertical slats. The upper section also gained a thicker chrome stripe that gives the front fascia a more elegant look.
Moving to the sides, changes are limited to body-colored side skirts and "GranLusso" badges on the front fenders. Around back, there’s a new bumper. Unlike the previous versions, the side are also body-colored, while the diffuser-like element looks sportier.
Maserati had nothing to say about the interior of the facelifted Ghibli, so it’s safe to assume that the update brings nothing new. That’s not necessarily an issue, because the sedan’s interior is still gorgeous to look at and has enough technology to keep up with the competition. Granted, it doesn’t come with the semi-autonomous features of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the new BMW 5 Series, but the new ADAS package adds features like Rear Cross Path with Blind Spot Alert, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and a new-generation Rear View Camera.
Nothing changed under the hood, but this isn’t really an issue. The Ghibli benefits from a diverse drivetrain lineup that includes both diesels and gasoline offerings, so customers have access to both fuel efficiency and higher performance.
The twin-turbo, 3.0-liter V-6, which was co-developed with Ferrari, can be had in three flavors. The base engine cranks out 345 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of twist. Paired to a ZF eight-speed automatic that sends power to the rear wheels, it enables the sedan to hit 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. Top speed is rated at 163 mph. Next up is the 404-horsepower and 406-pound-feet version. With this engine and the same transmission, the 0-to-60 mph sprint drops to 4.9 clicks, while top speed jumps to 177 mph.
Pricing information is not yet available, but the facelift shouldn’t bring a significant premium. The current lineup starts from $72,300, while the Ghibli S retails from $78,000. The range-topping Ghibli S Q4 fetches $80,500 before options.
