Taking styling cues from the DN Multisix concept shown at the Indonesian International Motor Show earlier this year, the new Terios, as with previous iterations, shares its underpinnings with the Toyota Rush, but adopts a more MPV appearance with boxier yet sharper styling, a claimed ground clearance of 220 mm, seating for seven and taillights derived from the Toyota Fortuner.
Inside, the interior has been completely redesigned with white and black trim, satin silver inserts on the steering wheel, new HVAC switches and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment display.
Unlike the previous Terios, the newcomer will be front-wheel drive only with motivation coming from a 1.5-litre petrol engine developing 77 kW and 136 Nm of torque. A five-speed manual is standard with a four-speed automatic optional.
Debuting at the same time, the new Rush features the same design but with a sportier touch in the form of the top spec TRD Sportivo. In this guise, the Rush receives black cladding on around the wheel arches, on the doors and bumpers, TRD front skidplate with red detailing, 17-inch alloy wheels, black grille and TRD badging.
Like the Terios, a 1.5-litre petrol mill with the same 77 kW / 136 Nm outputs is the sole option, again mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox. Both models are expected to go on sale in January next year with pricing yet to announced, but neither are likely to arrive on local shores anytime soon.
