Life down in the basement end of the new car market usually accepting a few compromises and Daihatsu’s new cylinder 1.0 litre Sirion is no

On one hand, the Sirion scores for providing a fresh approach to car motoring with its individual for the fact that is has five (a rarity at the price), for the surprise of items such as power power mirrors and central for its keen pricing, and for its ultra-low consumption.

On the other hand, the displays a disappointing lack of in noise and harshness levels engine/drivetrain is quite rough starting off on hills), it’s of low speed torque (awkward in traffic), and it loses points for not power assistance for the steering heavy when parking).

The Sirion’s launch pricing until December 1998) was drive-away for the manual version and drive-away for the (four speed) Given that dealer and charges usually add about that’s excellent buying.

As as the power windows, mirrors and locking already mentioned, the comes with dual airbags, front seat pretensioners and height-adjustable upper impact-sensing door lock and fuel cut-off system, a (two speakers only), a window wiper/washer, remote lid and rear hatch releases, a split fold rear and full wheel trims.


Doesn’t rate the Sirion scored only 15 out of a 100 points in the NRMA’s vehicle programme.
