The TERRA features advanced technologies for a safer and more confident drive. These innovative technologies called Nissan Intelligent Mobility includes Auto Tail Gate (automatically opens its tailgate when you approach and kick your foot under the back bumper), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) enhances your safety by making sure you only change lanes when you mean to. If this system detects that you’re drifting from your lane, it’ll give you a warning signal; Nissan’s Intelligent Around View Monitor (i-AVM) uses four cameras installed around the TERRA to give you a 360-degree top view around the vehicle to assist you with parking… or manoeuvring around tight spots especially when you are going off-road on rough terrains, while Moving Object Detection (MOD) used the four cameras to detect moving objects around the vehicle when it is in park or slowly manoeuvring; the system then alerts the driver both visually and audibly, plus many more features.
