Default Could we see this on indian roads- Daihustsu Move

Another small car launch by daihutsu,toyotas small car arm.Another of the probabilities of a small car to be launched on Indian roads.





Daihatsu launched the all-new Daihatsu Move yesterday[In Japan], which is based on a new chassis and comes equipped with a new KF-VE 660cc engine from the Topaz range. The new KF-VE engine makes 58 horsepower at 7,200rpm, and 65Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. You can either opt for a 5-speed manual, a 4-speed automatic or a CVT gearbox and either a 2WD or 4WD drivetrain - these varies with the trim level.

The new Daihatsu Move RS is powered by the KF-DET, a turbocharged version of the new Topaz KF series engine, this boosts power up to 63 horses, which is only a meagre 5 horsepower more than the KF-VE, but it kicks in at a lower speed - 6,000rpm. Torque is up by a large margin and at a lower engine speed - 103Nm at 3,000rpm

One thing which stands out is the leg-room for which boot space appears to have been compromised.

And yes a completely flat floor too.

Kind of looks a lot like the Echo/Yaris hatchback. Except the rear of course.
