The Daihatsu Terios facelift just made its debut in Indonesia this morning. The Terios is of course a sister car to ourWith . The minivan with three rows of seats and seven seats with SUV style so this midlife facelift is long overdue.
From what we can see in these live stream screenshots, the Terios now sports a slimmer upper grille, connecting just the headlights (now with smoked effect). If before this, the grid was aWith little gap between the top and bottom sections of the grill, the edge is now very clear. The lower grill is also much more prominent now.
Along with the bumper, the fog lamp bezels have been re-sharpened and now sit at the ends of the face, with vertical LED strips joining the round fog lamps. A large silver chin completes the facelift and blends visually with the side ‘stone guards’. The top R Custom variant has a red stripe on the upper grille and a black plastic trim above the silver side tips.
The wheels are new: 17-inch two-tone, five-spoke items on the R Custom and 17-inch bronze wheels on the ADS package, which can be added to the base X and mid R variants. Think of ADS as a package of chrome wheels/trims similar to Perodua’s GearUp. Easily recognized by the gray alloys and checkered chrome grille.
Inside, the Terios now comes with an all-black theme: combination seats, dash/doors, and headlining in black leather. The seats have a red stripe running down the spine and red stitching in several places for a sporty effect. ADM has added soft pads to the Custom’s front-passenger instrument panel and door armrests. There’s a wireless charger inside the center armrest and smartphone mirror too.
On the safety front, the Indonesian Terios now comes with six airbags. TOintroduced VSC across the range. Two new colors, Silver Metallic and Greenish Gun Metal, join the color list for six total options.
No mechanical changes, so the 2NR-VE 1.5-litre Dual VVT-i engine continues with 104 PS/136 Nm. All three variants can be had with either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. Prices start at Rp 236,050,000 (RM 73,146) for the X MT and go up to Rp 303,250,000 (RM 93,970) for the R Custom AT. The ADS package can be added to X and R for around Rp 10 juta (RM3,100).
What do you think of the facelift of the Daihatsu Terios? The net effect looks a bit likein these eyes, which is not a bad thing.
Now that the Terios has been revamped, perhaps it’s time for the Perodua Aruz facelift. The Aruz has remained largely unchanged since its launch in January 2019, save for awho added some kit. It should be coming very soon, but P2 has design autonomy, so Aruz’s facelift probably won’t look exactly like that.
