‘Funky’ Interior Full Of Surprises
Its ‘funky’ interior offers countless cubbies and storage areas plus tactile-grained plastics, large easy-to-use controls and thunk-shut doors for an overall quality feel.
Special ‘surprise-and-delight’ features include a pod-like oval speedometer - mounted on the steering column - which moves up and down with the standard height-adjustable steering wheel. The Sirion 1.3 SE has a circular pod-like rev-counter for added convenience and style.
All models have a 60/40 split-folding rear seat with an unusual feature. The seat cushions rise, hinge forward and then drop into the footwell.
This provides a soft carrying area for delicate items immediately behind the front seats. It also means when folded, the backrest creates a flat floor considerably deeper than would otherwise be possible.
No rival can beat the new Sirion’s outstanding performance, economy and emissions balance which further establishes Daihatsu as a world-leader in environmentally-conscious cars.
For example, despite being a full five seater, the Sirion 1.0 S has a top speed just under 100 mph with a 0-60 mph time of 13.5 seconds yet returns 64.2 mpg on the Extra Urban Cycle and has the lowest CO2 emissions in its class at 118 g/km.
