How It Looks - Interior

The inside of the Terracan suffers from our pet hate - fake wood. We had hoped that this would die out, but this has not filtered back to the designers. Very few manufacturers do fake or real wood with any conviction and it tends to be plastic looking. It also creeps onto the steering wheel, which we do not find comfortable as we like the steering wheel to feel tactile. It would be nice to see metallic trim as a no cost option.

The rest of the interior is fine, the materials and switchgear are functional, if not a little grey. A 12v outlet has thoughtfully been placed at the bottom of the central console, ideal for charging your phone or powering you own navigation system. There is another 12v outlet in the boot.

Infotainment

Our car was fitted with an after market, although standard RDS Radio/Single Slot CD Player. There are six speakers throughout the Terracan; sound quality is acceptable, but not exceptional. In our opinion we should now be seeing integrated systems, which are less prone to theft. Although the stereo’s face is removable; most people are not going to bother.
