Could this Daihatsu be Perodua's next compact SUV?

Daihatsu has put an unnamed SUV on display at the ongoing 2019 Tokyo Motor Show and we believe this could very well be Perodua’s next SUV after the Aruz.

Despite being an unnamed model, Daihatsu was gracious enough to provide the vital stats, including power output and dimensions.

Power comes from a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that outputs 98 PS and 140 Nm, mated to a CVT-type automatic. Power is sent to the front wheels.

The table below should give you a good idea of the Daihatsu's dimensions, and further cements the fact that this is a B-segment SUV.

  Daihatsu SUV Perodua Myvi
Length (mm) 3,995 3,895
Width (mm) 1,695 1,735
Height (mm) 1,620 1,515
Wheelbase (mm) 2,525 2,500
Weight (kg) 980 1,010

Towards the sides, this little Daihatsu gets dual-tone alloy wheels wrapped in 195/60 R17 tires, fender flares, and chrome door handles.

Drawing its inspiration from the Daihatsu DN Trec Concept, this yet-to-be-named SUV features a pair of LED headlights surrounding a trapezoid-shaped front grille. This SUV also gets angular shaped front fog light surrounds and horizontal LED daytime running lights.

As for the rear, you’ll be forgiven for mistaking this for the Perodua Myvi, as the Daihatsu looks remarkably like one, albeit with some crossover kit slapped on.

Inside, the Daihatsu gets a host of equipment; we spotted buttons and switches indicating that this particular car has auto start stop, front parking sensors, autonomous emergency braking, heated seats, 360-degree camera, and voice command.

Closer to home, we understand that Perodua is currently developing a new B-segment SUV, codenamed D55L. If the Daihatsu here is any indication of Perodua's upcoming model, we're definitely interested to see what Perodua has in store!

Toyota's Kinto is getting bored, finds a way to make the AH30 Alphard and Vellfire sliding doors close faster

You know how some cars can be truly fantastic except for one minor detail that you just can’t overlook and it ends up ruining the entire driving experience. It could be a terrible head unit or a bad seating position. Well, some of the engineers at Toyota’s Kinto subscription service thought that could be the abysmally slow speed of the sliding doors on the previous AH30 generation of the Toyota Alphard and Vellfire. Either that or they must be getting really bored over there. Or someone has secr

Review: BYD Dolphin in Malaysia - A solid choice for EV beginners, except for one thing

You might be aware that Malaysia prohibits the import of electric vehicles (EVs) priced below RM 100,000, and this is indeed accurate. The rationale behind this policy, driven by the Ministry of Investment, Trade, and Industry (MITI), is actually sound when you consider their goal of attracting investments in the EV sector. In the world of technology, most of the valuable stuff is in the higher-end product range. Cheaper electric cars have minimal technological sophistication; they're kind of li
