The Terios handles superbly, has little body roll, even at speed. It corners as though on rails. You feel the car being tugged into corners, and pushed out of them. Very reassuring. In the dry the handling and driveability is faultless, in the wet it is rarely less good, though it can be upset by poor surfaces. The engine's smooth, delivers power evenly and with the minimum of noise and fuss. The power's delivered slightly on the high side, which results in the need to change down more often. Though at speed it is more than adequate to power the car to high speed. Fuel economy, At 70 mph on the flat it is possible to be purring along the road at 37 to 38 mpg. If you drive with care and limiting top speed to 60 mph, the car will return up to a remarkable 47 mpg. The range is at least 330 miles plus per tankful, however driven. Accomodation, I am 6ft 3in tall, and get a comfortable fit in the front seats, and can even sit directly behind my seat, at that setting, in comfort. I particularly like the ability to recline the rear seat back rest. The boot space, is large and easily loaded, thanks to the wide opening rear door, visibilty being enhanced by the lack of intrusion of the spare wheel. The designers, have made a car which appears to supply the holy grail, comfort, ability and economy all in a remarkably small package. In short one of the best cars I have ever owned. Well worth considering if you like good handling and a high driving position.
