Briefly about the interior of a Daihatsu Terios

Sticking to the bare essentials, the Daihatsu Terios features a simplistic dashboard that comprises of a fair bit of hard plastics and doesn’t exactly fall into the ‘modern category’.

With a high mounted radio unit and rotary A/C controls being the most technologically advanced features in the vehicle, it does come off as slightly archaic compared to its rivals who deal with touch screen infotainment systems and the works.
