Interior of New Turbo Territory A Place of Elegant Refinement

While a bonnet scoop, turbo engine, dual exhaust outlets and associated exterior enhancements mark differences between the new turbo Territory models and non-turbo variants, it's when you take a look inside that the real distinctions between the models become very apparent.

"One of the key design principals behind the turbo Territory range is understated elegance and performance," said Debbie Pascoe, Colour and Trim Design Manager.

"Territory Turbo variants are sophisticated and refined, appealing to an even more discerning customer. We wanted the interior to reflect this, and therefore chose a warm charcoal trim to create an interior that is alluring and exciting. This particular interior is sportier than a non-turbo Territory, giving a stronger, more assertive overall image."

The use of intriguing three dimensional fabrics and moody metallics helped achieve the look the Colour and Trim team were striving for.

"We have utilised the successful Eucalyptus palette, but in a new darker form," said Ms Pascoe.

The Interior Command Centre (ICC) of the new Territory Ghia Turbo is perhaps one of the most striking enhancements made to the interior of the vehicle. The Ghia Turbo's ICC is finished in black onyx, with satin chrome highlights.

"The appearance of the new ICC helps create a real sense of prestige and wow factor when opening the door to the new Territory Ghia Turbo," said Ms Pascoe.

"The black interior makes for an impact loaded sports and performance statement, and leaves no doubt that this is a special vehicle."

The instrument cluster is unique to the turbo Territory range, with a slight variation in illumination, colours and finishes between the two models.

Further differentiation between the Turbo and Ghia Turbo is evident in interior appointments. Territory Turbo is fitted with a sports steering wheel, while a luxury sports steering wheel and leather wrapped park brake are fitted to the Territory Ghia Turbo. A leather insert gear lever is standard on both models.

The new colour scheme flows through to other aspects of the interior, including the sporty new supportive seats.

Territory Turbo receives black suede style seat trim and four-way power driver seat, whilst Territory Ghia Turbo features black leather seat trim with a six-way power driver seat. Both models have power adjustable pedals as standard.

The command driving position, a favourite feature for Territory owners, remains a key attribute of the new turbo models.

Both vehicles offer flexible seating arrangements and numerous innovative storage solutions plus the renowned Territory attribute of being able to transport as many as seven people at once (when fitted with optional third row seats).

With this consideration in mind, Territory's Intelligent Safety System is a vital part of both models.

Territory Ghia Turbo's colour TFT screen enables the use of the Reverse Camera, operating in conjunction with a Reverse Sensing System.

In addition to this, Territory Ghia Turbo receives a number of features over and above the standard Territory Turbo model. These include:

* Side curtain air-bags
* Premium ICC & audio system
* Dual zone climate control

"It was important to create an interior which is representative of what Territory Turbo and Territory Ghia Turbo are as vehicles," said Ms Pascoe.

"It is high end, it is capable, it is refined and offers performance attributes. The use of dark colours in the interior helps convey this particular styling statement."
