• Nissan will debut two new SUVs in 2021 the carmaker announced.

Nissan South Africa announced it will debut its Terra SUV in the final quarter of 2021, adding to its Magnite crossover model also due next year.

The Terra was unveiled in the Middle East and features four-wheel-drive including a four-wheel lock, brake limited slip differential and electronic locking rear differential. 

The new models measure in at 4.9-metres in length, 1.9-metres in height and just over 2.1-metres in width – with a ground clearance of 243mm. 

It slots in below the Patrol, and Nissan says it 'borrows some design elements' from its big brother. 

2.5-litre petrol engine

Under the skin of the Terra sits a ladder-frame chassis. It features a five-link coil spring rear suspension system and rigid rear-wheel axle. 

Powering the Terra is a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with a seven-speed automatic transmission. The petrol engines deliver 124kW and 241Nm. 

The SUV also features a dial on the system that allows drivers to quickly shift from two-wheel drive to a 4x4 drive. 

The Terra is fitted with Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control while its go-anywhere nature is pumped up with  Brake Limited Slip Differential, and Electronic Locking Rear Differential.
