Daihatsu Terios

The 1.5-litre DVVT engine has more than enough power to deliver a spirited, satisfying ride for TERIOS. With maximum output of 77/6000 (kW/rpm) and maximum torque of 140/4400 (N m/rpm), the negine delivers ample torque at low to mid-rpms and smooth, easy acceleration at high rpms. You can enjoy an exciting ride whether you’re traveling off-road, driving in the city, or cruising at high speeds.

The engine is highly efficient too, contributing to the low fuel consumption of 7.4 L/100km EU Combined Mode (EC Directive 80/1268/EEC)

Boasting full-time 4WD and a centre differential lock, TERIOS delivers superb drivability on rough roads, quick acceleration from a standing position, and outstanding high-speed stability. The centre differential prevents occurance of the “tight corner braking phenomenon.” In thick mud or on a deeply rutted road, just touch a button to switch on the differential lock. This connects the front and rear wheels directly, giving the vehicle better traction. A direct traction LSD (Limited-Slip Differential) for the rear wheels is available as an option for 4WD model. If one rear wheel loses traction, this system delivers more power to the other rear wheel.

The 1.3L K3-VE and the 1.5L 3SZ-VE engine’s exhaust purification system employs a revolutionary “Intelligent Catalyst” to ensure clean exhaust emissions over a longer period of time.

Developed by Daihatsu, it uses a self-regenerating function to maintain its stable catalytic performance.

VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) combines the performance of ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution) that prevent the wheels from locking during sudden braking; TRC (Traction Control) that prevents the drive wheels from slipping during acceleration; and a finction that controls side-slip while cornering. The system helps maintain wehicle stability, even during sudden turns or when entering turns on slippery road surfaces.

DAC (Downhill Assist Control) helps the vehicle to overcome control obstacles on steep downhills and frozen, snow-covered roads. When switched on, DAC improves vehicle stability by holding the vehicle speed at approximately 5 km/h on steep downhills.

HAC (Hill-start Assist Control) makes it easier to start driving when stopped on a steep hill. By pressing the brake pedal a second time while braking on a hill, the braking condition will be maintained for approximately two second to prevent the vehicle from slipping backward.

In addition to the standard front SRS air bags for driver and front seat passenger, SRS curtain-shield air bags for both front and rear seat occupants and SRS side air bags for driver and front seat passenger are available. The curtain-shield air bags, which deploy from the front pillars and roof side sections in the event of a strong side impact, cushion the occupants’ heads for protection. The side air bags also offer protection in the event of a side impact, and a cut-off switch for the front seat passenger air bag is also provided.
