From the outside, the 2020 Daihatsu Terios has undergone a complete overhaul of its exterior design that hasn't changed over the years. The shape changed completely to become more luxurious and futuristic. There are no more spare tires hanging on the back door, so it doesn't weigh down the door and it looks like a modern urban SUV.

The Daihatsu Terios 2020 now uses a 2NR engine with a capacity of 1,500 cc Dual VVTi, 16 valve DOHC. This machine is the same as that used on the Toyota Avanza 1.5 or Veloz 1.5. But even though you use the Avanza engine, don't imagine that its acceleration performance is the same as Toyota's low MPV.

The reason is, the weight of the two is far different, friend, even when compared to the previous Terios, the Daihatsu Terios 2020 is 40 kg heavier. Especially in the gearbox ratio. If Avanza uses a low ratio, then the Daihatsu Terios 2020 carries a high ratio.

Moreover, now using 17-inch diameter wheels for the R type, so it requires a lighter gearbox ratio. Not only the gearbox ratio, even the ECU settings need readjustment.

With these changes, Daihatsu Indonesia claims that in terms of fuel efficiency, the Daihatsu Terios 2020 is more efficient than the previous generation, even when compared to competitors and other 7 seater 2020cars.
