The first generation was available as a five-door estate, and the smaller kei car model called the Terios Kid, which was only released in Japan (see Japanese-language article Terios Kid). Model codes for the first generation were J100, J102, and J122.

In 2000, Daihatsu gave the Terios a mild facelift both in the exterior and interior of the vehicle. A new chrome grille replaced the black plastic grille. The high-grade model gained electric front windows, central locking, rear seat head restraints, alloy wheels, roof rails and a roof-mounted rear spoiler. Mechanically, the 1.3-litre SOHC four-cylinder engine fitted to the previous model had been replaced by the new 1.3-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine. Power was also increased by 3 kW (4 hp). A sport version of the K3-VET engine was produced in Japan.

In Australia, a limited edition sports series was introduced in 2001 with only 200 units being available. The vehicle had body colour matching bumpers, different from the two-tone bumper colour on the standard model. Rear spoiler and sunroof became standard. The interior was updated with metallic paint finish on the centre console and dashboard.

This was the first Daihatsu to be assembled in Venezuela, where production began in November 2001.[1]

Daihatsu Terios Plus


The first-generation Daihatsu Terios is also known as the Toyota Cami in Japan.


In Malaysia, the car is locally assembled as the Perodua Kembara. It was unveiled in August 1998. In June 2003, the Perodua Kembara was updated with DVVT engines. In July 2004, the Perodua Kembara CT Elegance was unveiled and came with ABS, front dual airbags, leather seats, different designed alloy rim, flat type side step and cubic printing cluster. It was priced at RM59,988 and only available in one color: Klasik Gold.[2]


In India, there is a Terios-derived vehicle known as the Premier RiO from Premier Automobiles Limited, which is a re-badged Zotye Nomad I. It is powered by a Peugeot diesel and petrol engine, and since 2012 has a Fiat diesel option.


In China, it is known by two ways: one of them as under the badge as Zotye 2008 and 5008 propelled with a 1.5-litre engine provided by Mitsubishi (first series body); as an unauthorized copy of the car, which caused some controversy, and the FAW badged it as the Huali Terios or Dario.[3][4] Since 2009, Daihatsu withdrew from the China market due to bad performance, and sold the tooling and rights of this car to First Auto Works (FAW), who has been their partner in China. The new name now is the FAW (or YiQi) M80 SenYa (森雅). It is based on the Daihatsu Xenia/Toyota Avanza. Two versions 1.3L (K3) and 1.5L (3SZ) are sold, with either five or seven seats. Both engines are imported Toyota DVVT engines. Production for the Zotye 2008 ran from 2007 to 2010 while the 5008 was produced from 2008 to 2013.


In Indonesia, a version of the Terios is known as the Daihatsu Taruna (Japanese: ダイハツ・タルナ, Daihatsu Taruna), with a longer rear-based body capable of seating seven people. The Taruna was launched in 1999 with a different fascia and a 1589 cc HD-C petrol engine. The name Taruna translates roughly as "young knight" or "cadet" in Indonesian. It is available with standard CL and FL trims; deluxe CX and FX trims; and sporty CSX and FGX trims. There are also CSR and FGZ trim level, which are similar to CSX and FGX.

A more "stylish" version, the Daihatsu Taruna OXXY, was launched in March 2005.[5]

Daihatsu Terios Advantage (long wheelbase, 7-seater version) (Chile)

The second generation known as Daihatsu D-Concept 4x4 made an appearance in November 2005 at the Tokyo Motor Show before being named the new Daihatsu Terios, which went into production in January 2006. Model codes are J200, J210, and J211 for 5-seater version; model codes F700 and F710 for 7-seater version.

The second generation of the Terios is also wider, nearly 1700 mm, compared to the first generation which is less than 1500 mm. The 7-seater version has an increased exterior length to 4425 mm and height of 1745 mm. There are two wheelbase: Short (5-seater only) and Long (5-seater and 7-seater).


Daihatsu Be-go (Japan)

For the Japanese market, the first generation Terios was succeeded by the Daihatsu Be‣go and the Toyota Rush. The Daihatsu Be‣go and the Toyota Rush was discontinued in the Japanese market in March 2016 with no successor model, but Toyota in Japan has released the Toyota C-HR in December 2016 as the spiritual successor to the Toyota Rush.

Both use 1.3-litre or 1.5-litre engine. Only the 1.5-litre version is available with both two- or four-wheel drive.

The Terios features a permanent 4WD system via lockable central differential. However, it lacks low ratio gears.

A minor facelift of the both the Daihatsu Be-Go and the Toyota Rush was unveiled on 13 November 2008 in Japan. The minor facelift brought new front bumper, new tail lamps, new alloy wheel design for the G trim level and a 5% improvement for fuel economy for the 2WD automatic model.[7]


In December 2006, Toyota and Daihatsu in Indonesia launched the second generation of Rush and Terios which have longer wheelbase. However, the car only comes with rear wheel drive.[8] The Daihatsu Terios and Toyota Rush are available only with the long wheelbase in Indonesia. The difference between Rush and Terios: Rush is designed for five people only, and Terios is designed for seven people, so the Rush lacks third row seating (although third-row seat is available as a dealer option). Also both cars have different rim, with seven bespoked wheel from JDM version of Toyota Rush installed on Daihatsu Terios and five-bespoked wheel from European market Daihatsu Terios installed on Toyota Rush.

Daihatsu Terios (Indonesia)

In Indonesia, the second generation Daihatsu Terios came with three trim levels: X, X Extra, R and R Adventure. X and X Extra have almost spotless unsimilarities apart from parking sensor, wheel hub, and automatic transmission. Whilst Daihatsu Terios R have a striking differences even from the previous versions and facelifts, such as body kit design (R Adventure) and wheel arches, brand new bespoked alloy wheels, spoiler as standard (previous one was optional) and satnav with DVD player double din stereo, rear parking camera and HDMI input. The first generation Toyota Rush initially came with two trim levels: G and S. The S trim was later replaced by the TRD Sportivo variant in 2013.

In March 2015, the facelifted Daihatsu Terios and Toyota Rush was unveiled. The facelift models brought new projector headlights with LED positioning lights, a wider grille with a chrome lower bar, a full-width air intake for the lower bumper and a blacked-out center piece. For the interior, both Daihatsu Terios and Toyota Rush received new steering wheel design, a redesigned instrument cluster, new seat upholstery, reshaped second-row headrests and double-DIN touchscreen DVD head units on higher trim levels. The trim piece is finished in gloss black for the Daihatsu Terios and silver for the Toyota Rush.[9]

In February 2016, the TRD Sportivo Ultimo variant of the Toyota Rush was launched, and the TRD Sportivo 7 variant was updated.[10]

2008 to 2010 Toyota Rush (Malaysia)


In Malaysia, the second generation Daihastu Terios is available as the Toyota Rush (2008 to present) and Perodua Nautica (2008 - 2009).

Toyota Rush[edit]

The Toyota Rush was launched in Malaysia on January 2008 with two variants: 1.5G (M/T & A/T) and 1.5S (A/T only). The Toyota Rush in Malaysia is the long wheelbase 7-seater version. It was available in four colors: Blue Metallic, Silver Mica Metallic, Champagne Mica Metallic and Black Mica.[11]

For 2011, Toyota updated the Toyota Rush in Malaysia again offering the same two variants: 1.5G (M/T & A/T) and 1.5S (A/T only) with updates.[12]

In April 2015, Toyota introduced a facelift Toyota Rush now available in five colors: Grey Metallic, Champagne Metallic, White, Black Metallic and Silver Mica Metallic. The facelift Toyota Rush is very similar to the facelifted Daihatsu Terios and Toyota Rush in Indonesia. Exterior changes included redesigned front bumper, radiator grille and bonnet. The bumper is finished in a two-tone effect and the grill finished with faux carbon-fibre. Elsewhere, there’s a new integrated chrome lining highlight running across the headlamp and radiator grille. restyled rear lamp featuring combination LEDs with smoked lens. Again the same two variants were available: 1.5G (M/T & A/T) and 1.5S (A/T only). Standard equipment included two-DIN CD player with MP3, USB and Bluetooth support paired with six-speakers, rear air-con vents, blower controls, dual SRS airbags, ABS brakes and two pairs of ISOFIX points in the second row. The 1.5S has in additional equipment including LED positioning lamps in the standard-fit projector headlamps, fog lamps, chrome covers for the wing mirrors and leather steering wheel and gear knob.[13]

Perodua Nautica[edit]

Perodua, Daihatsu's local partner in Malaysia launched a short wheelbase version of the Daihatsu Terios. Sold as the Perodua Nautica, it was launched in Malaysia in May 2008. This was fully imported from Japan, except for the front grille, front bumper and rear bumper which are manufactured and fitted in Malaysia. It has a 1.5-litre DVVT engine, full-time 4WD, projector headlamps, a 5-seater with dark interior. The price tag of the Perodua Nautica is not much different from the long-wheelbase Toyota Rush. It comes with only two colour choices: (Medallion Grey and Majestic Black) and comes in automatic transmission only. The Nautica was quietly discontinued in 2009, slightly less than a year after its launch. Only a mere total of 489 units were ever sold.[14] The reason for the discontinuation was because as a national car company focused on local manufacturing, Perodua was unable to obtain sufficient necessary Approved Permits for vehicle importation, as the Nautica was imported in CBU form from Japan.[citation needed]
