However, the matter was not limited to “make-up” alone. Under the new hood, a new engine with a dynamic valve management system DVVT was placed, and in the places of the body hidden from the eyes, electronic driver's aides found their place - not only ABS, but also the brake force distribution system EBD.
Developers also approached passive safety issues in a new way. The structure of the deformable zones of the body was re-calculated, the pillows are placed not only in the front, but also on the sides, the pedal assembly breaks off in an accident without injuring the driver’s feet … In general, in the factory crash tests carried out according to the EuroNCAP method, the new “Terios” received 4 stars.
But what remains unchanged is the off-road qualities of the car. As before, it has permanent all-wheel drive with a locking center differential, very decent ground clearance and 38 ° approach and exit angles, as well as an unkillable body, which, by the way, is guaranteed for an entire 8 years! We add that the space in the cabin has become noticeably greater - the length of "Therios" increased by 230 mm, and the width - by 190 mm. You must admit that all this is not cosmetics, but a radical processing of the structure.
