With spring in the air, and family day trips and Easter holidays being planned, the recession-busting, five-seat, 4x4 Daihatsu Terios is the perfect vehicle to master a trip through town, a cross-country constitutional or the annual family break.

The 'go-anywhere', tenacious Daihatsu Terios is a town and country mini-master and laps it all up; in S, SX or SE Automatic form, and all from just £12,725 OTR.

Built with legendary Japanese quality, reliability and engineering prowess, the Daihatsu Terios - with five years free servicing until 31st March 2009, enviable five-year unlimited mileage warranty, roadside assistance and six-year body warranty - makes light work of whatever the task in hand. Its lightweight, powerful (103 bhp and 140 Nm), free revving 1.5-litre, 16-valve, DOHC, variable valve technology engine not only offers solid performance (0-62 mph in 12.2s and 99 mph V-max), but superb fuel economy (35.8 combined for S model) and the Daihatsu Terios benefits from low road duty taxes and insurance bands (7 and 8): Terios is practical, fun and economical.

Safety is essential with the unpredictable British weather, and the Daihatsu Terios is well equipped to protect its occupants. The full-time 4WD is not just for off-road capability, but providing maximum traction in all weathers, high-speed stability and the quickest possible acceleration and poise through corners. The Daihatsu Terios also features a locking centre differential function, directly linking the front and rear wheels, giving better traction in deep mud, ruts, on ice etc., avoiding wheel spin.

And, coupled with 15-inch front disc brakes, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Anti-Lock Braking and Brake Assist functions, independent suspension with excellent ride and handling, twin air bags, a solid safety cell and first class visibility and lighting, you know you are in safe hands driving a Daihatsu Terios - wherever you plan to take it, whatever the weather.

Paul Hegarty, Operations Director, Daihatsu Vehicle Distributors Limited, said: "In these tough times, our cars have never made more sense. The Terios is a great value, economical 4x4 that is as happy buzzing about the city as it is coping with muddy, wet off-road tracks. Safety comes as standard to this fine utility vehicle as much as practicality, frugality, style and fun. Wherever, whatever - the Terios will take you there, affordably, stylishly and in comfort and safety. It's quite a character, guaranteed to bring out your adventurous nature."
