Daihatsu's compact, agile, innovative mini-SUV 4x4 is great value at the best of times, but until June 30th 2009 the Terios S is even greater value - with prices down to an eye-opening £11,725 on the road - saving a massive £1,000 on the 2009 list price.
The Daihatsu Terios was Winner of the Best Compact 4x4 category in 4x4 Magazine's '4x4 of the Year 2007 Awards', and received great accolades from TV's Top Gear - thanks to it offering a fabulous blend of practicality, go-anywhere-4x4-ability and fun, coupled with Daihatsu's legendary reliability, economy and style. And each Daihatsu Terios comes with an enviable five-year unlimited mileage warranty, roadside assistance and six-year body warranty.
Built with reputable Japanese quality, reliability and engineering prowess, the Daihatsu Terios makes light work of whatever the task in hand. Its lightweight, powerful (103 bhp and 140Nm), free revving 1.5-litre, 16-valve, DOHC, variable valve technology engine not only offers solid performance (0-62 mph in 12.4s and a maximum speed of 99 mph), but also superb fuel economy (35.8 combined mpg), especially for a 4x4. And the frugal Daihatsu Terios S also benefits from lower V.E.D bands and insurance groups (7D). In short: the Daihatsu Terios S is practical, fun and economical, and now, even greater value for money.
Safety comes as standard with all Terios models, with full-time four-wheel-drive, wheel-spin-limiting central locking differential, 15-inch front disc brakes, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Anti-Lock Braking and Brake Assist functions, independent suspension with excellent ride and handling, twin and side air bags, a solid safety cell and first class visibility due to the high driving position.
Inside, the Daihatsu Terios S comes fully loaded with equipment levels that leave the competition green with envy, including: air-conditioning, electric windows at the front and rear, front 12v power outlet, full-time four wheel drive, driver, passenger and side airbags, passenger airbag de-activation switch, remote central locking and even reverse parking sensors.
With the interior space of a far larger vehicle, plus large boot space and 60/40 split folding rear seats, the Daihatsu Terios is a practical and versatile alternative to the traditional family car.
Paul Hegarty, Operations Director, Daihatsu Vehicle Distributors, said: "The Terios S is a great value, economical 4x4 that is as happy buzzing about the city as it is coping with 'off-the-beaten-track' roads. Wherever, whatever - the Terios S will take you there, affordably, stylishly and in comfort and safety. It's quite a character, guaranteed to bring out your adventurous nature. And, with this stunning special offer of £1,000 off the OTR list price, there's never been a better time to buy a brand new Terios S, to enjoy memorable trips out this summer, comfort, style and with a smile on your face."Published 20 April 2009
