Duster vs Terrano vs EcoSport – Verdict:

If we consider the appearance, Ford EcoSport and Nissan Terrano are quite better than Renault Duster.  Further Duster is a little short in height than its competitors. However, EcoSport lacks in rear seat comfort and boot space. It actually takes the lead in its pricing and high mileage, which keep it above the edge. Nissan Terrano is yet to hit the roads. Only then, we will come to know which one of them is getting more preference in the Indian market.
