Car reviews - Daihatsu - Terios - range

Overview

25 Sep 2003

By MALCOLM LIVERMORE

THE Terios 4WD looks like a serious off-roader, but behaves like a tall city-based small car. Its monocoque body, five-link axle and coil spring suspension all-round and no low-range gearbox sees to that. And that’s how Daihatsu intends it to be, since the appropriately named Rocky sold alongside the Terios for buyers after a real mud-plugging 4X4. The Terios’ narrow, tall four-seater four-door wagon body comes in two models – DX and SX. Power comes courtesy of a 61kW/105Nm 1.3-litre four-cylinder engine, mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox driving all four wheels. A diff lock is standard. In mid-’99 minor trim changes were applied to the whole range, while a more comprehensive facelift during 2000 resulted in a new grille, trim and an upgraded engine.
Model release date: 1 July 1997 to 1 October 2000
