Quick Summary

Recommended. Terrano is an underrated four-wheel drive. It comes with a long list of standard equipment and the usual high level of Nissan reliability.

Full Road Test

Nissan has updated the Terrano more times than it might care to remember but it's still good enough to give more expensive rivals a run for their money. While a new version is due out soon, the current II compensates by having a lengthy list of standard equipment - and all for reasonable prices. It's not quite as good on road as it could be but the Terrano feels well-built and made to last. The company's more trendy X-Trail doesn't have its off-road ability either. The 2.7 diesel is a best buy - the newer 3.0 is too thirsty and expensive.
