Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 30 - 36 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Fuel economy is good for a 4×4, but insurance is on the high side. Servicing and depreciation are about average.

Terios performs reasonably on the eco front. With an average of 190 g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are fairly standard for a small 4×4. It’s worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is not particularly economical, averaging 35 mpg.

One of Daihatsu’s strong points. You can expect Terios to be mechanically tough. Some of the interior panels are a little flimsy and scratch easily (especially if you’re using it as a workhorse). Owners report very few problems. It’s not really up to off-road use, so beware of abused cars.
