Potential buyers who have always thought the Terra would look nicer with a slightly darker vibe will be pleased to know the VL variant now offers exactly that. Updated exterior components include a gloss-black grille, a gloss-black front bumper and foglamp accents, and gloss-black door handles and side-mirror housings. The side steps and the 18-inch alloy wheels have been blacked-out, too.
Changes to the cabin are considerably more subtle, though. Some dark chrome accents have been added, and the seats are now available with a dual-tone color scheme. Other than that, you’ll be sitting inside familiar territory.
No performance changes to take note of here. The Nissan Terra still packs the same 2.5-liter turbodiesel engine capable of 187hp at 3,600rpm and up to 450Nm of torque at 2,000rpm. Top-spec VL units come equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission.

The introduction of the updated Terra comes as part of Nissan’s bid to continue its success in the Philippine market. Last year, the carmaker finished third in market share among all automotive brands despite the COVID-19 pandemic, with the Terra accounting for 17.9% of the company’s sales. Do you think the model will sell even better this year?
