A minor facelift hid a new motor in the MY01 Terios. The ageing 61kW HC-EJ powerplant gave way to the Toyota Echo/Daihatsu Sirion GTVi-derived 1.3-litre K3-VE four-cylinder unit, with power and torque output rising 2kW and 15Nm respectively.
A tougher-looking Toyota Prado-like vertical grille, new bumpers and revised tail-lights and wheel covers were the most visible changes outside, while a CD player gave the game away inside.
