Although the Terios is cheap for a 4x4, it’s smaller than similarly priced cars like the Kia Cee'd. Running costs are lower than larger 4x4 rivals, but fuel economy, insurance costs and CO2 emissions are equivalent to, say, a Ford Mondeo 2.0 petrol's. Discounts on the list price will be small, but the Terios should hold its value pretty well.
Daihatsu Terios 4x4 quality & reliability
The interior isn’t the last word in style, and the cheap-looking materials don’t give you a plush feel. There are one or two rough edges, too. However, the design looks reasonably modern, and it feels very solid feel throughout. Daihatsu cars, especially the small ones, have a pretty strong record when it comes to reliability.
Daihatsu Terios 4x4 safety & security
Every Terios comes with anti-lock brakes with electronic distribution of stopping power, plus front and side airbags. Curtain airbags aren’t available, though, and neither is stability control, even as an option. In this day and age, that’s not really good enough.
