Standard features

Buyers of the new Territory will have their choice between the entry-level Ambiente, mid-spec Trend, and range-topping Titanium trim levels.

At the bottom, the Ambiente gets LED daytime running lights, front and rear fog lamps, keyless entry and start, a 7-inch digital driver’s display, a 12.3-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice recognition, six speakers, a multifunction steering wheel, cruise control, rear parking sensors, hill-launch assist, ABS with electronic brake assist, and six airbags.

Moving on, the Trend boasts automatic headlight activation, rain-sensing wipers, an electric tailgate, dual-zone climate control, and a wireless smartphone charger.

The mid-ranger also wears the same 18-inch wheels as the Ambiente, but comes with a chrome grille, satin aluminium rocker panel finishes, and vinyl upholstery.

Buyers can then expect the pinnacle Territory Titanium to bring automatic high-beam functionality, a 12-inch driver’s display, two extra speakers for a total of eight, electric front seats, a powered moon roof, front parking sensors, collision mitigation, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring.
