The Nissan Terra has been spotted again, where we now get your first look at the model’s interior thanks to BitAuto. The upcoming Terra is a seven-seat SUV, which will be based on the NP300 Navara pick-up truck, and is rumoured to debut at this year’s Beijing Auto Show in April.

Based on these images, it looks like the Terra’s dashboard will not differ much from the Navara, with a near carbon copy of the pick-up truck. Cues like the shape of the air-con vents, climate control switchgear, steering wheel design and centre console appear very much unchanged.

This approach is different from other pick-up-based SUVs like the Toyota Fortuner (based on the Hilux) as well as the China-market Isuzu MU-X (based on the D-Max). Other examples like the Ford Everest (based on the Ranger) and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport (based on the Triton) see an improvement to their cabins to reflect a more upmarket approach.

While the Terra’s interior may be carried over wholesale, there’s no mistaking the exterior. A more pronounced V-motion grille, shapelier headlights and brand-new rear section are some of the obvious cues, helping promote a “natural” looking seven-seater.

The Terra is expected to be powered by a 2.3 litre turbodiesel engine (190 hp/450 Nm), although a petrol option might be part of the engine list as well. A six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission should be part of the powertrain, along with a choice of rear- or four-wheel drive.
