Interface dynamics separating homogeneous phases is shown to be the main mechanism underlying irregular evolution in 2D linearly stable, coupled map lattices. In a fully deterministic model belonging to this class, we find evidence of at least two different regimes that we call weak and strong turbulence. The transition between the two regimes is carefully investigated revealing a direct connection with the destabilization of the interfaces separating homogeneous phases. The critical behaviour is analysed and compared with that of stochastic models like directed percolation.
