What's the used Nissan Terrano II 4x4 like?

The Nissan Terrano was one half of a joint venture between Nissan and Ford that also produced the original Ford Maverick. However, the Terrano has out-lived its Ford counterpart by several years.

Two very different versions of the car are available: a sporty three-door aimed at the fashion-conscious and the larger five-door, with a longer wheelbase, which makes a decent alternative to mainstream family car.

Overall, the Terrano makes most sense as a workhorse, as it's not as trendy as rivals like the Toyota RAV4. The Nissan's cabin lacks the class of a Land Rover Freelander's, for example, but both versions have a decent amount of space inside.

True, it isn't as sharp to drive as a Toyota RAV4 and it's no Land Rover away from the Tarmac, but it does have a good, even blend of on- and off-road ability, and makes a decent tow car.
