Nissan Terra gets a 5-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating

Nissan’s seven-seat SUV, the Terra, has been awarded a five-star safety rating by the New Car Assessment Programme for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP). The model is based on the NP300 Navara, and competes against the Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Ford Everest and Isuzu MU-X in the region.

In the Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) test, the Terra secured 32.18 out of 36 points, with ASEAN NCAP’s report stating there was adequate protection given to the chest. Meanwhile, the SUV collected 40.74 out of 49 points in the Child Occupant Protection (COP) test, gaining maximum points in the frontal and side tests.

Lastly, in the Safety Assist Technologies (SAT) test, the Terra, which is available with an optional blind spot monitor, secured 12.73 out of 18 points. The overall weighted score with the AOP, COP and SAT tests taken into account is 83.17 points.

The model tested is a Terra 2.3V 2WD 7AT from Thailand, and the score is applicable to cars sold in other ASEAN countries. In Thailand, the Terra comes with a 2.3 litre turbodiesel engine (190 PS/450 Nm) and a seven-speed automatic transmission. All models also come with airbags as standard in certain markets but just two for others.

      At least this vehicle COP very good. I remember Ertiga, the COP failed badly. Got only 2 stars. No children safety at all!

      No wonder Ertiga sales are kaput

      • Nope. COP scored 33% which isnt far off 40%. This oso comparable to other 4star cars like Suzuki Ciaz and Nissan Navara.

        No wonder theres so many Ertiga on the roads.

    We need better cars from Nissan ETCM. Pity ETCM also, they want to bring good cars like Qashai but MITI does not approve it.

    MITI of course scared because Qashai will wipe out CRV and Fortuner buta buta. And UMW and DRB both GLC. So, MITI makes sure any GLC car is well protected.

    Bad habits brought about by our previous incompetent Government of the past.
