Daihatsu Sirion Review

The new Daihatsu Sirion car is a completely different part to its predecessor and is more consistent with the Nissan Micra on the length, width and height, but the passengers to compete with the Honda Jazz considerably.

For example, front and rear tracks - at 1460 and 1465 for example - are 65 and 60 mm wider than before. Sirion length of 3,600 mm is actually less than 95 mm to 20 mm less than the Ford Ka.

However, the pace of 2430 mm is 85 mm longer than the old model and 1665 mm in width is 70 mm higher, and up to 5 mm larger than the Toyota Yaris, Nissan Micra and Fiat Punto. Increase the height of 100 mm to 1550 mm - 10 mm larger than the Micra.

Especially in the face and short rear overhangs, a higher seating position and a sloping roof leads surprising still cleverly mask height.

The car is very wide and thick - helped by strong press lines in the wheel wells flowing into a prominent rear bumper. The overall effect is trusted, well-balanced design quality and strength that exudes.

A drag coefficient of 0.31 Cd particularly impressive confirms the new Daihatsu Sirion efficiency and fuel economy AIDS and the top speed while reducing wind noise.

By Yoshihiro Fujibayashi, Studio Head, Division Styling, Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd. said: "We tried to make the car as a sculpture of a sense of size and quality to look beautiful, chiseled face, round headlights, animated page and dynamic seat. and taillights integrated into the body lines.

"All these features have been carefully designed not to create a striking exterior, but to give the car an impression of quality. The result is an exterior with an undeniable sense of presence in the city."

Impressive interior space

The new Daihatsu Sirion has the legs of the occupants and head-up the new size. Its interior width of 1,400 mm is 70 mm longer than before and 10 mm more than the Toyota Yaris.

A height of 590 mm head allows input and output aided by doors wide open. The rear doors, for example, open to 80 degrees.

Inside length is 1830 mm with 20 mm more than the Yaris, while headroom is also larger than the Toyota.

Luggage space is also impressive. With both rear seats up, it measures 225 liters (VDA), compared to 205 liters for the Yaris. But with the seats folded, this increases to 630 liters - 80 liters more than Toyota.

M. Fujibayashi continues: "For the inside, we tried to make it as simple as possible, tachometer is on the steering column, we designed this after the image of a clock placed on a table coffee in a lounge ...

"The dashboard is a utility rack for long. We thought it would be much more convenient to provide a complete storage rather than giving a large number of small pockets here and there.

"The rear seats can slide, then things seem to them, not fall to the floor. This is another idea to make this car a versatile tool for transport."

World-class engines

The new Daihatsu Sirion has two of the most efficient in the world 1.0 and 1.3 liter petrol which combines driving performance with high fuel consumption and ultra-low exhaust.

Both offer an incisive response to throttle speeds Town, reducing the need for constant gear changes, but they are particularly sweet-spinning engine on the road, so take advantage of the tightening of the owner of enthusiasm during the busiest driving rev. Both are Euro 4 compliant.

All-New One liter

The three-cylinder, dual overhead is only 1.0 liters of a new and bigger than before and 998 cc (989 cc was), and slightly less than 71 mm bore and longer stroke of 84 mm (72 x 81 mm ).

This gives more torque at low speed or pulling power, while the dynamic variable valve time (DVVT) allows for broader dissemination of high-end power and flexibility at low speed.

The new 12-valve 1.0 liter is the maximum power of 69.3 hp at 6000 rpm is exceptionally high for its size, while 69.3 lb.ft torque is also impressive - especially at a 3600 rpm available. Compression ratio 10.5:1 is.

It features a compact combustion chamber and offset crankshaft, this engine employs resin-coated pistons and piston rings for low-voltage internal friction.

Both the head, block and even the oil pan is rigid but lightweight aluminum, which contributes to low vibration and quiet.

Superior performance, economy and emissions

No competitor can match the new Daihatsu Sirion 1.0-liter performance, fuel economy and low emissions.

Maximum speed is 99.4 mph with an important 00-60 mph to 13.5 seconds. Fuel consumption is an excellent 46.3/64.2 and 56.5 mpg on the Urban cycle / highway, and combined.

One of the exceptionally low emissions of CO2 of 118 g / km mean that the car qualifies for a license by the Road Fund only 75 pounds for 12 months � 38 first registration fee (the band up to 120 g AA / km). What's in a class dominated by hybrids - and the little Daihatsu Charade, of course.

Thoroughly revised 1.3-liter

The new Sirion 1.3-liter four-cylinder has been completely revised to provide greater torque at low revs, and more useful driving force delivery every day.

Always dynamic features variable valve timing (DVVT) and two overhead camshafts, this engine also provided the basis for Daihatsu to Toyota for use in its urban Yaris.

The new Sirion application, the output is 87 horsepower (with 102 hp), but at 6000 rpm and 7000 rpm. The couple has the same 88.5 lb.ft, but a lot of useful 3200 rpm and 4400 rpm than the previous model.

When the compression ratio of 10.3:1, this compact, lightweight, all-alloy engine Bore x Stroke 72 x 79.7 mm, and - like the 1.0 liter - uses a robust disk-to-cam chain.

Top speed for the manual is 106 km / h with four-speed automatic transmission only slightly slower at 102 mph. The first one was 10.9 seconds from 0 to 60 km / h, while the car takes 12.6 seconds.

Fuel economy is notable for two at 37.7/58.9 and 48.7 mpg on the Urban cycle / extra-urban and combined mpg for the manual and 32.8/54.3 and 44.1 for the automatic. CO2 emissions are among the lowest in the class of Daihatsu Sirion at 137 and 151 g / km, respectively.

World's first self-regeneration of the catalyst

New Daihatsu Sirion 1.3-liter has the world's first self-reforming catalyst. This effectively extended the catalytic converter, reducing maintenance costs.

It is also environmentally friendly because it remains "healthy" the catalyst for a higher mileage means that the already low 137 g / km of CO2 emissions do not increase the engine gets older.

This revolutionary technology works by providing a capacity for self-regeneration of precious metal particles, which normally breaks down.

Nanotechnologies, intelligent catalyst contains metallic ions of palladium, the most sensitive to heat, and metals used in catalytic converters.

Temperature and oxygen available, the particles turn in and out of the crystalline state therefore regenerating and prolonging the ability of the "cat to purify exhaust gases.

European point of the frame

The suspension of the new Sirion has been amply demonstrated in a variety of European roads and tuned for flexibility and stability.

The front end uses MacPherson struts and coil springs while the rear uses the equally popular and proven system of semi-independent torsion beam with coil springs separated. With almost vertically mounted shock absorbers, reducing the transmission of road noise and makes the damping more effective.

Unusually small cars, anti-roll bars are fitted to both front and rear suspension, front suspension when the pace is very long to improve ride comfort. Also be used in front of the ball joints of the anti-roll bar, which also enhances the ride and handling.

Special features include a tour of the rear suspension and more rigid elongated bearings for improved stability.

To maximize fuel economy, the new Daihatsu Sirion uses an electric motor in the direction of standard input. This is more efficient than traditional power to undermine the hydraulic system.

However, many electric power steering set-ups are criticized for their lack of sense if the chassis engineers have made sure the new Daihatsu Sirion avoids this defect.

As a result of careful tuning of the chassis, which is an absorbing, well-damped, and provides a progressive roll when cornering busy reassuring.

Straight-line stability is particularly strong and self-control centers, avoiding vague and wandering in the paths of some electrical systems.

Turning Circle class Beating

Although it is one of the largest pieces, and industry bodies, the new Daihatsu Sirion offers a turning radius of a player class.

Together with the excellent visibility and higher seating position than normal, the parking was much easier - no help of radar sensors for SE models.

In fact, limiting to curb turning radius of 9.4 meters, 0.4 meters closer Daihatsu Sirion Ford Fiesta and Toyota Yaris, 0.6 meters higher than the Vauxhall Corsa and a massive 0.9 meters more agile Renault Clio .

High level of security Package

Every aspect of safety was studied for the new Sirion in order to achieve 4 stars in EuroNCAP tests.

The body has been exposed to crash test in the world, including more stringent on the full frontal crash test and side at 55 km / h, a rear-end collision at 50 km / h and a crash test frontal offset 64 km / h.

Daihatsu Sirion

In addition, the new Daihatsu Sirion was deliberately crushed the car much more to ensure compatibility in crashes of "real life".

All lanes are straight, stiff joints suspension components is enhanced and strengthened. High-strength steel is used when needed and the bonnet and bumper are designed to reduce injuries to pedestrians.

The Pillars of the side door and roof of the ribs is a special, that the potential to reduce head injuries when both the brake pedal and steering wheel are designed to avoid distractions during a frontal impact.

All models have driver, passenger and - unusually for this price - side airbags, while front seat belt pretensioners and force limiters are.

The three rear seat belts all have more than three-point belts Isofix location outside. This allows a better place child seats. There are a total of five height adjustable headrests.

The new Sirion anti-lock ventilated disc brakes and drum brakes at the rear (ABS) is facilitated by the electronic distribution of brake force distribution (EBD). This optimizes brake force depending on the weight distribution of passengers and luggage.

Daihatsu Sirion

Higher grade

There is no such thing as a "base" entry-level Daihatsu Sirion, despite prices starting from � 6.995 OTR. Each model has a higher equipment levels.

For example, the standard for all - is air conditioning, radio / CD player, ABS with EBD, power steering, four electric windows, front and side airbags and remote central locking - including Sirion 1.0 S

Daihatsu Sirion 1.3 S adds, for example, the rear speakers, electric door mirrors, driver seat height adjustment, chrome inside door handles and the front passenger seat back pocket.

Optional Sirion 1.0 SE includes alloy wheels, park assist sensors and Daihatsu Sirion 1.3 SE adds the pod-like rev counter, Color-keyed outer door handles and a black window surround.

Daihatsu Sirion

Like all Daihatsu vehicles, the new Sirion offers its customers the assurance of a three-year unlimited mileage roadside assistance and an eight-year anti perforation warranty - two years before.

Daihatsu Sirion also very competitive insurance groups for the 1.0 S 4D, 5D and 6D for SE 1.0 to 1.3 - both help reduce operating costs.
