Nissan Philippines, Inc. (NPI) launched an updated Terra VL variant that will put a smile on individuals who are not a fan of chrome trims. The reason for this is that the 2021 Nissan Terra VL comes with blacked-out trims, which gives it a sportier appeal.

The de-chromed Nissan Terra comes with gloss black accents seen on the radiator grille and front bumper. The blacked-out treatment is also seen on the door handles, side mirrors, and step boards. Of note, the 2021 Nissan Terra VL comes with glossy black alloy wheels.
Interior of the Nissan Terra VL
The blacked-out trims extend to the interior of the 2021 Nissan Terra VL. It now features dark chrome accents and dual-tone leather seat trims. It still comes with an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen, leather-wrapped steering wheel, zero-gravity seats, among others.

Under the hood, the 2021 Nissan Terra VL is still powered by a 2.5-liter diesel engine that delivers 187 hp and 450 Nm of torque. The engine is connected to a seven-speed automatic transmission.
The updated exterior of the Terra VL is meant to give Nissan PH’s midsize SUV a fresh look for this year. Moreover, the 2021 Terra VL is designed to go head-to-head with its segment rivals that have also ditched exterior chrome trims. One of the midsize SUVs in the market that also comes with blacked-out trims is the Ford Everest Sport.

Similar to what Nissan did to the 2021 Terra VL, the Ford Everest Sport has a black grille, bumper, and side mirrors. It is also fitted with a set of 20-inch alloy wheels.
On the other hand, Nissan Philippines President and Managing Director Atsushi Najima said that the LEAF electric vehicle (EV) is coming soon. However, Najima did not confirm the exact launch date of the said EV.
As a review, Nissan first announced its plans to bring the LEAF in the Philippines last March 2019. But since then, the LEAF has yet to make its local launch.
