Last Updated: 06 Mar 2014
Terrano has never enjoyed the popularity of the Cherokee or Discovery. It's a competent and reasonably affordable family/leisure 4x4, nonetheless.

Emissions summary

Terrano performs badly on the eco front. With an average of 254 g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are quite high for a large 4x4. However, it's worth noting that the line up has a high number of diesel models, bringing the average down and giving buyers more choices of low-emission versions. Diesels typically produce less CO2 than petrol engines with similar power outputs.

The range is quite thirsty, averaging 29 mpg.
