Japanese compact car specialist Daihatsu is celebrating the first birthday of its popular Charade city car with a sizzling summer offer that takes prices back to when it was launched.
With £300 off every Charade variant from 1 July to 30 September, the entry-level three-door ‘EL’ model is once again available for less than £6,000, at just £5,995 on-the-road.
The five-door EL, meanwhile, reverts to just £6,495, and the five-door SL, which comes with air-conditioning, alloy wheels and side airbags as standard, is now just £6,995.
Since its launch in June 2003, the spirited 1.0 litre petrol engine Charade has received continual high praise from press and public alike.
Daihatsu Marketing Director Paul Tunnicliffe said: "According to customers, what has impressed most has been Charade’s exceptional value for money, thanks to its high levels of performance and equipment matched with its equally impressive ultra-low emissions and fuel consumption figures."
The five-speed manual version is capable of just short of 70 mpg (68.9 Extra Urban Cycle) and produces just 114 g/km CO2, qualifying it for the £75 twelve-month Road Fund Licence fee (AA band).
Standard equipment across the range includes, power steering, electric front windows and door mirrors, central-locking, a CD tuner, driver and passenger airbags and ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD).Published 14 July 2004
