Boustead Sdn. Bhd., the sole distributor of Nissan automotive in Brunei, launched the All-New Nissan Terra last weekend.

The latest addition to the Nissan’s line is considered one of the greatest highlights for the brand’s history as it represents a huge milestone in its innovation. And for that, the exclusive event for such innovative model was held at Indera Samudra, Hall 3, The Empire Hotel and Country Club.

The reveal of the Nissan Terra was exclusively attended by Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Anak Haji Abdul Wadood Bolkiah Ibni Pengiran Lela Cheteria Sahibun Najabah Pengiran Anak Haji Abdul Aziz as well as the management of banks and finance institutions, members of the media and the customers.

“Nissan has been involved in building SUVs for more than 60 years and has received its reputation in traversing challenging terrains around the world which has proved Nissan’s capability to build strong and tough SUV. Hence, based on that, it went into the development of the All-New Nissan Terra which means that you can always count on your Terra to take you anywhere.” said Mr Lim Jin Lee, The Executive Manager of Boustead Sdn Bhd.

Nissan Terra has been developed in Asia, build in Asia for Asian customers. The exterior offers the strength and ruggedness of a utility vehicle including the signature V-Motion grille and the boomerang headlamps which give it a more streamlined look. Available in eight colors; Dark Blue, Black Star, Burning Red, Gold Beige, Brilliant Silver, White Pearl, Earth Brown and Twilight Gray.

Inside, the Nissan Terra can accommodate seven passengers and offers roominess with best-in-class cabin space and quiet interior which provide comfort for everyone on board. Additionally, it has a theater seating arrangement where the front seat and the front floor were arranged lower position to give better visibility for the second and third row seats.

Launched with three variants; Mid, High and Premium Grade, and they are all reasonably well equipped. The Mid Grade offers a 2WD system with a manual transmission and a 17-inch alloy wheel. The interior is equipped with a urethane to keep the car cool and comfortable. It also has a low-cost maintenance which is suitable for those looking for value for money.

The High Grade offers a 2WD system but with an automatic transmission and an 18-inch alloy wheel. The interior is also equipped with a urethane while featuring some premium conveniences which are also available in the Premium Grade including a 10.1-inch Android Player for onboard entertainment, hence, making every journey more pleasurable.

The 2WD High and the 4WD Premium Grade are further enhanced with a Power Liftgate to provide more convenience to the drivers and passengers in which the trunk door can be opened in various ways either by pressing the unlock button on the key three times, pressing the button on the trunk door or pressing the switch button at the vehicle’s centre console. The angle of the trunk door can also be adjusted according to the driver’s preference.

For those who prefer a vehicle with a superior and premium feeling, the 4WD Premium Grade, which is the finest grade among the three, has a luxurious interior furnished with leather and first-class comfort and features advanced Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies.

As part of Nissan’s plans to move towards its future direction, Nissan Intelligent Mobility, in which it aims to achieve a goal of zero emission vehicle and zero fatalities on the road by transforming the car into a more responsive partner by redefining how the car is driven, powered and integrated into society, the 4WD Premium Grade adds Intelligent technologies for a safer and confident drive.

One of the highlighted technologies equipped into the 4WD Premium Grade is Around View Monitor. It is a monitor that provides a virtual 360-degree scene of the car in bird’s-eye view. It assists the drivers by giving real-time information about the vehicle’s surroundings which makes parking much easier and safer. Another technology equipped into the 4WD Premium Grade is Lane Departure Warning in which it assists in maintaining safety by alerting the drivers when it detects that the car has strayed from its intended lane. It also recognizes the lane in which the car is travelling. Thus, when the driver unintentionally drifts out of the traveling lane, the system alerts the driver with a visual warning on the display and an audible signal. These technologies help in seeing and detecting any potential obstructions around the vehicle for better safety.

Furthermore, all models are equipped with a Zero Gravity Seat. This technology reduces fatigue for drivers and passengers when driving by pursuing the ideal posture to make long drives more pleasant and maintaining seating comfort, thus making the Nissan Terra suitable for long journeys.

Powered with 2.5-litre diesel engine providing best-in-class performance, it offers impressive 190Kw horsepower and 450Nm torque that ensures an exciting drive of speed and acceleration. It also has high ground clearance which can reduce the risk of damage from uneven roads, hence, suitable for both city drive and off-road drive. Moreover, Nissan Terra is equipped with ladder-frame chassis which provides greater rigidity to give comfort and convenience and further satisfy the outdoor adventure enthusiasts.

To kick off the memorable journey of the first batch of owners of the Nissan Terra, the official delivery of the latest versatile SUV from Nissan was conducted during the launch event. The handover of the keys was personally distributed by Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Anak Haji Abdul Wadood Bolkiah Ibni Pengiran Lela Cheteria Sahibun Najabah Pengiran Anak Haji Abdul Aziz.

Members of the public who are interested to have a closer view of the Nissan Terra or to inquire further information are welcomed to visit Nissan’s showroom in Beribi and Kuala Belait and get assisted by the friendly sales representatives of Nissan.

So the Suzuki Ignis is a huge revamp from the previous model indeed. Many reasons to invest in the latest Suzuki Ignis and I guarantee that it will be a huge hit in Brunei due to its new looks and affordability.

Specs of the Suzuki Ignis:

Ignis is a compact urban runabout with stance and space of a small crossover styling. The Suzuki Ignis is powered by K12M with 1,197 cc displacement, in-line 4-cylinder and 16-valve engine. The multi-point fuel injected power plant has variable value technology and produces 62kW of power at 6,000 rpm and 115 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm.

The model comes in different colour choices, ranging from Single Tone to Dual Tone.

With a ground clearance of 180 mm (7 inches), the new Ignis will be able to tackle difficult roads while the raised driving position will provide great visibility for the the driver.

It has an Android powered panel for your audio needs and the Suzuki model only comes in auto transmission.

All I can say is that Suzuki Ignis has a more vibrant and dynamic feel and it does feel like a mini SUV too. Do drop by at Suzuki Showroom.

According to Lim Jin Lee, Executive Manager of Boustead Sdn Bhd, during the press conference, the Suzuki Ignis will be available something in mid-May. Bookings already can be made through the sales agent at Suzuki showroom. What are you waiting for?
