The likely got it from somebody at FAW where the Terios was made from 1999 until 2009 in a joint venture with Daihatsu. The 5008 is priced from 53.800 yuan to 74.800 yuan. Engines: 1.3 and 1.5, both Mitsubishi clones. The new T200 will still be based on the Terios, but the body work will be all-new.
