Daihatsu Sirion

Segment-busting space, style, value and equipment combined with an unbeatable performance, economy and emissions balance - the completely new Daihatsu Sirion has it all. The Sirion takes its name from the broad river in the record-selling book The Lord of the Rings.

Developed with parent company Toyota - which sells its own version in Japan - the Sirion goes on sale in the UK in March priced from an unbeatable £6,995 on-the-road for the 1.0 S.

This is around £2,000 less than most mainstream competitors when taking into account the Sirion’s standard equipment which includes air-conditioning, driver, passenger and side airbags, radio/CD player, four electric windows, remote central-locking and electric power-steering.

The new Sirion also has a wealth of safety features including anti-lock brakes (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD).

Its front seatbelts provide pretensioners and force-limiters and the three rear seatbelts all boast three-point location plus ISOFIX for the outer belts which better locate child safety seats. There are also five height-adjustable head-restraints.

Aimed directly at the Ford Fiesta market, the new Sirion has external dimensions closely matching the Nissan Micra but with interior space from the next-class-up, challenging the entire supermini segment.

The confident wide-stance styling features strong wheelarch flares which give a ground-hugging look and mask the taller-than-average build which is part of the Sirion’s secret to its remarkable roominess.
