Xterra fan boys and majority of off-roading community in Middle East were anxiously waiting for the launch of the all new 2021 stunner – the Xterra 2021, successor of the thoroughbred. But surprised to see a crossover with Xterra badge.
All new Xterra 2021 is a face lifted version of Nissans Terra, already popular in South Asian Market.
Let’s look into the features and specifications to see if it can continue the legacy of Xterra. The new model is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with a seven-speed automatic transmission producing 165 hp and 241Nm of torque.
New Xterra is equipped with dial on the system that allows drivers to quickly shift from two-wheel drive to a 4×4 drive plus Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control. Additional Smart features like Brake Limited Slip Differential, and Electronic Locking Rear Differential.
The SUV’s rugged frame facilitates its durability and practicality, while the future-forward aesthetics are exhibited in the quad LED projector lamps and a bold new V-motion grille. The revised rear and new LED taillights add to the all-new X-Terra’s athletic look
The front face resembles the Patrol with the powerful new V-motion grill, with its thick frame contrasting with the refined horizontal chrome bars within. The proportions of the all-new X-Terra are strong and bold. The hood is tall and horizontal, the body is muscular, and the driver sits up high for a commanding road presence.
The front bumper with its unique layers overlapping each other creates an overall protected, yet sophisticated feeling. Combined with sleek, high tech headlamps and a powerful grill creates a distinctive front face that looks tough, modern, and upscale.
In the rear, the width of the vehicle is highlighted by the strong horizontal movement of the tail lamps. The wide LED signature rear lamps and the characteristic chrome center finisher further emphasize its strength and width. Like its Patrol sibling, the rear bumper uses squared-off shapes to show that the all-new X-Terra is well protected.
The titanium grade models will come equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, while the platinum grade will come with a set of 18-inch machine cut alloys. Chrome side steps and a chrome auto folding mirrors complement the overall look, alongside the fender vent and smart roof rail.
The all-new X-Terra is equipped with a reinforced ladder-frame chassis. It features a five-link coil spring rear suspension system and rigid rear-wheel axle. The all-new X-Terra will be available in seven exterior colors, including bright brown and burgundy. The upscale exterior is matched by premium black and light grey interior colors that add to the richness of the vehicle, along with a choice of cloth or leather seat fabrics, depending on the grade.
X-Terra 2021 goes on sale across the Middle East from December 2020 at a starting price of $27,200 exclusive of VAT.
