APN, PR,
23 November 2007.

Daihatsu is freshening its Sirion city car range with new bumpers and air-intakes, new wheel designs, revised cloth trim, grippier front seats and improved rear suspension for taughter handling.

In the U.K., a new Sirion SX  version with a 1.5 litre engine and added sporty looks and equipment levels has just been launched at GB£9,495 on-the-road.

Based on the top-spec Sirion 1.3 SE, the SX adds a larger 103 PS 1.5 litre engine, a deep front spoiler with mesh grille, front fog lamps, side skirts and rear tailgate spoiler.

SX adds side skirts and a rear tailgate spoiler.

Standard equipment includes red interior trim, alloy wheels, air-conditioning, four electric windows, driver, passenger and side airbags, a radio/CD player and remote central-locking.

In addition to the automatic option for the Sirion SX, the new 1.5 litre model boasts a standard VSC system (Vehicle Stability Control). It provides a traction control system with corrective actions in the event of a skid.

The interior features a pod-like oval speedometer which moves up and down with the height-adjustable steering wheel. All new Sirion versions also get a rev-counter and LCD panel in the speedometer showing current and average fuel consumption.

An external input allowing an iPod or MP3 player to be played through the radio/CD player.

Another new innovation is an external input allowing an iPod or MP3 player to be played through the radio/CD player. The front passenger airbag can now be deactivated.

The new Sirion 1.5 SX features a new four-cylinder 16-valve petrol engine with Dynamic Variable Valve Timing (DVVT) – similar to that fitted to the new Materia mini-MPV and Terios mini-SUV.

Maximum power is 103 PS (101 bhp, 75.76 kW) at 6,000 rpm with maximum torque of 97.4 lb ft (132 Nm) at 4,400 rpm.

With a top speed of 109 mph (175 km/h) and a 0-60 mph (0-96.5 km/h) time of 10.1 seconds, the new Sirion 1.5 SX returns 54.3 UK mpg (5.2 litres/100 km, 19.22 km/litre, 45.24 U.S. mpg) on the extra urban cycle and 51.4 UK mpg (5.5 litres/100 km, 18.2 km/litre, 42.83 U.S. mpg) for the automatic version which costs GB£10,295 on-the-road.

Originally launched in 2005, the completely new 5-door only Sirion rapidly became Daihatsu’s best-seller in the UK.

The Sirion 1.0 can reach 99.4 mph (160 km/h) while returning 64.2 UK mpg (4.4 litres/100 km, 22.73 km/litre, 53.49 U.S. mpg) on the extra urban cycle and its 118 g/km qualifies it for a £35 annual Road Fund Licence. Daihatsu says that it should also be exempt from the proposed new London Congestion Charge. The same engine is used also in the new Subaru Justy 1.0 R, Toyota Yaris as well as the Toyota Aygo, Citroën C1 and Peugeot 107 trio. The latter three are based on a common platform issued from a Toyota - PSA joint venture.

With equipment levels which include throughout the range ABS with EBD, air-conditioning, driver, passenger and side airbags and remote central-locking, the revised ’08 Sirion range starts from GB£7,495 on-the-road.
