Japanese car-maker Nissan is reportedly set to launch the automated manual transmission (AMT) variant of its SUV, Terrano, in India in November. The Terrano AMT has been rumoured for the Indian market since the entry of the Renault Duster AMT.
In its new AMT avatar, the Terrano is expected to remain unchanged in its styling and features, except for the addition of the AMT box. The Terrano is likely to get the same AMT gearbox as the Duster. Renault had launched the Duster with AMT box in March this year.
Coming to the engine part, the Terrano AMT will continue with the same 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines. Currently, the petrol Terrano churns out 102bhp and 145Nm of torque, while the diesel comes in two states of tune â€” 84bhp/200Nm and 108bhp/248Nm.
Nissan has recently made changes in the variant line-up of the Terrano in India. The Terrano is now offered in four variants â€” the petrol (XL), XE diesel 85hp, XL Plus diesel 85hp and 110hp XV Premium after removing the 85hp diesel XL, 110hp diesel XL and 110hp diesel XV trims from the list.
The company has also updated its Micra hatchback in India with new Sunshine Orange exterior colour recently. The Micra range is also available in five more exterior shades including Brick Red, Turquoise Blue, Blade Silver, Onyx Black, Nightshade and Storm White.
