Daihatsu Sirion (05-10) - Review

Daihatsu's second-generation Sirion is a deceptively spacious small hatchback, ideally suited to drivers looking for a compact car at an affordable price. There's a more European flavour to this Sirion over the old one - the styling is sharper, the handling has been improved (it's based on the 2006 Toyota Yaris) and it's well packaged inside.

Daihatsu's second-generation Sirion is a deceptively spacious small hatchback, ideally suited to drivers looking for a compact car at an affordable price. There's a more European flavour to this Sirion over the old one - the styling is sharper, the handling has been improved (it's based on the 2006 Toyota Yaris) and it's well packaged inside. What Daihatsu hasn't changed is its value for money. Standard equipment is impressive for such a small car - every Sirion has air conditioning, a CD player and electric windows - and list prices are enticing too.

What owners say...

 It's really big inside and roomy. I'm 6ft 3in and I don't find it in the least bit cramped. Large boot for the size of the car.
