Daihatsu’s New Terios Puts The DN Multisix Concept Into Production 23

Posted by Carscoops Staff in Asia, Daihatsu, Daihatsu Terios, new cars on 11 23rd, 2017


It’s been about a dozen years since Daihatsu introduced its second-generation Terios. That makes it prime for replacement, and that replacement was unveiled today in Indonesia.

The compact crossover has grown, as so many have, in its latest iteration – by 6.7 inches, to be precise. At under 175 inches from nose to tail, it’s still smaller than a Toyota RAV4, but it’s grown large enough to accommodate seven passengers.

Styling is clearly drawn from recent crossover concepts Daihatsu has showcased, like the DN Multisix displayed at this year’s Indonesian Motor Show and (perhaps to a lesser extent) the FT revealed in 2015.

Ditching the old Terios’ platform, the third-generation model is based on the underpinnings of the Xenia (also known as the Toyota Avanza) minivan. Power comes from a 1.5-liter inline-four, which you might expect to be driving the front wheels, but actually drives the rear, through either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic.

Daihatsu will produce the new Terios (at a projected rate of 1,500 units per month) in Indonesia where it’s been unveiled, and will supply it to Toyota for sale as the new Rush – both of which are targeted at the growing ASEAN market.

New 2018 Toyota Rush Leaked Ahead Of Next Week’s Unveiling 16

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Asia, Daihatsu, Daihatsu Terios, India, new cars, TOYOTA on 11 16th, 2017


Details about the 2018 Toyota Rush have surfaced, with the car indeed looking like a production version of the Daihatsu FT Concept from 2015.

Of course the Toyota Rush and the upcoming Daihatsu Terios should be very similar, and features found on the Toyota will probably be there on the Daihatsu as well.

According to AutoNetMagz, the 2018 Toyota Rush will have LED lights front and rear, electronic retractable mirrors with LED signal lights, 16″ as well as 17″ alloys (17″ for the TRD version), a shark-fin antenna and a rear spoiler.

Inside, there’s a reversing 360-degree camera, a smart-entry system, a 7″ touch screen display and A/C as standard for the G version. The TRD Sport version on the other hand also gets soft touch plastics for the dashboard.

In terms of safety, the Daihatsu version apparently won’t feature six airbags like the Toyota will, as the latter will also come with ABS, EBD, BA, VSC and HSA.

As for what’s going to power the Rush/Terios, it’s expected that the current model’s 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol unit will be replaced by a newer Dual VVT-i engine.

All-New Daihatsu Terios Teased, Coming November 23 16

Daihatsu Terios – now that’s a name we haven’t heard in a while, but we should get used to it again, as Toyota’s subsidiary is preparing to present an entirely new generation of the model.

Teased on their official Indonesian website, the mini SUV partially reveals its profile, with a shark-fin antenna, tailgate-mounted spoiler, and new lighting units on both ends.

The new design hasn’t shifted away from the second-generation, but it’s believed that the upcoming Daihatsu Terios has been inspired by the FT Concept, presented in 2015, at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show.

IndianAutosBlog speculates that the new Terios will make use of the same 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that powers the current iteration, rated at 109PS (107hp). The unit, which is also believed to have been used under the hood of the FT Concept, is expected to be married to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Not much else is known about it so far, but AutoNetMagz reports that the 2018 Daihatsu Terios will be officially presented on November 23
