Early this week we told you that Nissan Terrano will soon get with an AMT version in India. Confirming the reports, the Japanese carmaker today announced the start of pre-booking for the new Terrano 6 Speed Advanced Auto Drive for an initial token amount of ₹ 25,000. The new car will be based on the top-of-the-line XVD Premium variant and will be available for pre-booking in Nissan showrooms across India. Nissan hasn't revealed the actual price but it did mention that the new Terrano AMT will be priced in the range of ₹ 13.75 lakh to 13.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Sales of the new car will commence later this month.

Interestingly, just a few months back, Nissan’s French partner, Renault introduced an AMT version of the Duster facelift in India. The updated Renault Duster came with the carmaker’s new 6-speed automated manual transmission (AMT) unit called Easy-R. We drove the car early this year and are pretty sure the new Nissan Terrano will use the same Easy-R AMT unit only with the new ‘Advanced Auto Drive’ tag. The Terrano AMT will come mated to the same 108bhp, 1.5-litre diesel engine sourced from Renault.

We would also like to mention that the Renault offers the Easy-R gearbox in two variants of the Duster – the RXZ and RXL and both are almost ₹ 78,000 to ₹ 2.0 lakh cheaper than the price point at which Nissan intends to launch the Terrano AMT. Also, the Duster AMT is an updated model and comes with a host of new features as well. On the other hand, rival Hyundai Creta offers the automatic option in both petrol and diesel trims and uses a conventional torque converter rather than an AMT unit like the other two. While the Creta petrol automatic SX+ variant is priced at ₹ 12.93 lakh, the diesel automatic S+ and SX+ variants are priced at ₹ 13.63 lakh and ₹ 14.57 lakh respectively.

Coming back to the Terrano AMT, along with the new gearbox, the new model also comes with several other small add-on features like - electrically folding exterior rear-view mirrors with integrated turn signals, anti-pinch driver side windows, a new driver armrest, soft-touch plastics on the dashboard, and door trim. Nissan has also included a new body colour, Sandstone Brown, which will be available across variants.
