Review: Nissan Terra VL 4×4, What Attracts Me Most?

Wapcar Automotive News – SUVs are bullies. They are bigger, more muscular, and more powerful but also have some disadvantages such as being harder to drive even on the road, too many plastic parts for durability and their technology is outdated in terms of aesthetics. America. Have you seen their touchscreen? It’s like they took it from the first Samsung Galaxy phone. No one complains because that is the status quo. Also, if an SUV can get you out of the harsh road conditions at your destination with ease, you can’t complain.

The Nissan Terra 2023 tried to defy the standards in 2018 when it was introduced. It feels better to drive, has a few tricks up its sleeve like second-row flip buttons and a digital rearview mirror. However, it suffers from the same flaw as its competitors: lack of refinement. It has state-of-the-art technology that depends on the image, but the rearview mirror and touchscreen are low resolution, ironically. 

Everything has changed with the Nissan Terra 2022. In addition to equipping a better screen, they also modified the interior to provide a smoother experience. For this version of the VL 4×4, we are treated to a burgundy and black two-tone cabin with leather accents even on the dashboard. There’s a 10-way power driver’s seat, which is better molded and has a nicer design, even for the second row. The steering wheel has also been revised and now has a flat bottom while the spokes have become thinner despite the multitude of buttons. At the center of the dashboard is a host of updated technology. There’s a new 9-inch touchscreen with an updated look, and while not as modern as a lower-end smartphone, it works more easily with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

Also, underneath is a new interface for the dual-zone climate control that retains the physical buttons and knobs to operate it. Below are the charging ports including a convenient enough USB-C connection and a wireless charger. It’s odd to see a 12v socket closer to the driver instead of a knob in a 4×4 system. The highlight on this cake is an 8-speaker Bose sound system.

Along the way, the new Terra feels all-encompassing, like it’s supposed to be implemented in the first place. Outstanding ride quality is now supported by premium features that provide an exceptional driving experience. Touch points such as the steering wheel and door panel are finished in soft leather. The cabin is quiet, the Bose sound is full, and the camera system now displays with better resolution. Vehicle information is also easier to see thanks to the 7-inch color screen located between the gauges.

The only downside to the driving experience is the blade-style steering wheel. I like its design, but functionally it’s weird. When you do tight turns like turning around or turning 2-3 points, it gets very heavy. Accelerate and it’s lighter but on the highway it’s not really solid. Not that it’s as light as the steering wheel of a crossover, but I wish I had more confidence at higher speeds. Finally, there is no telescopic adjustment for this, which is an oversight considering this price point.

No changes have been made to the powertrain part. The car still uses a 2.5-liter engine with a capacity of 190 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque, comes with a 7-speed automatic transmission with manual mode. It’s not the strongest out there, but it’s more than enough to get you on most country roads. As for thirst, in the city it hits 7.5 to 8 km/l depending on the traffic situation in your area, and on the highway I hit 16 km/l without going overboard. set.

Passengers will love the new Terra as much as the driver. As said before, there’s a USB-C charging port at the front, but there’s also a port at the back, behind the center console. Bonus if they are about 5’5 to 5’6 average height because it’s really spacious here. There’s plenty of leg room in the second row even if you adjust it forward for more legroom for third-row passengers. There are air vents for everyone and an 11-inch screen that flips up for the rear occupants. Another puzzling thing is that this monitor’s HDMI connection is in the third row, so it’s a bit of a hassle if there’s no one around. 

Safety is always the most important thing to Terra. It gets 6 airbags, ABS, 4 parking sensors at both ends and stability control. This VL version benefits from the additional benefits of Nissan Intelligent Mobility such as Surround View, Hill Start Assist, Downhill Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Sports Blindness Warning and Braking. emergency, and many more features. Terra will do her best to avoid accidents with these toys, but of course it’s better if you focus like this SUV.

The Nissan Terra has become the car you will remember every time you park it. Its larger grille has been simplified with chrome slats instead of the old honeycomb form, making it more similar to the Nissan Patrol. The vehicle is equipped with new four-LED headlights and signature daytime running lights for a futuristic look.
