    Default Terios OffRoad Ground Clearance: Measured with pics.

    Hi,

    The ground clearance of the Terioss Offroad edition has been the topic of a lot discussion over time. So I'm posting my measurement findings for the forum.

    Daihatsu promotional info:
    Ground clearance:
    Daihatsu Terios Offroad : 255mm
    Daihatsu Terios 4x4 / 4x2 / LWB: 205mm
    Tyres:
    Daihatsu Terios Offroad: 235/60r16
    Daihatsu Terios 4x4: 215/65/r16

    Conditions:
    2010 Daithatsu Terios Offroad.
    Tyres as measured: 215/70/r16*

    * I'll adjust my findings for the different tyres fitted.

    Radius adjustment from 215/70/r16 to 235/60r16: -9.5mm
    Raduis adjustment from 215/70/r16 to 215/65r16: -10.75mm

    Lowest point of ground clearance - area below rear shocks:
    Clears 195mm but not 200mm.

    Conclusion:
    Terios Offroad (215/70r16)
    Ground Clearance on center of vehicle: 225mm.
    Lowest point under rear shocks: 195mm.

    Standard Terios Offroad (235/60r16) (-9.5mm, rounded to 10mm)
    Ground Clearance on center of vehicle: 215mm.
    Lowest point under rear shocks: 185mm.

    Standard Terios 4x4 (215/65r16) (-10.75mm, rounded to 11mm)
    Ground Clearance on center of vehicle: 214mm*.
    Lowest point under rear shocks: 184mm*.
    *The assumption is the raised suspension does not influence ground clearance - has been explained elsewhere on the forum.

    Thanks

    Thank you for making the effort to take the measurements.

    One thing though .... Just check your tire size calculations.

    As I have it the 215/65R16 has a diameter of 686mm, the 215/70R16 = 707mm and the 235/60R16 = 688mm

    The total height difference therefore = +21mm and +2mm and the actual increase of the height of the axle = +10.5mm and 1mm.

    For practical purposes, the difference in negligable ......
