Move X 2WD

Move Custom RS 2WD

DAIHATSU MOTOR CO., LTD. (Daihatsu) announced the launch in Japan of the fully redesigned mini vehicle MOVE on October 5.

The redesigned MOVE has been completely updated from the platform to the engine and developed with the aim of evolving on a new level that transcends its class. Two models have been created, the MOVE, based on the concept of "my energetic and versatile," and the MOVE Custom, which is based on the concept of "quality and mobile amenity."

The new MOVE offers the following features:

1) New styling that effects dramatic change to a refined and dynamic silhouette;
2) Advanced packaging that creates the longest cabin length and width in a mini vehicle;
3) A high-quality interior that provides a relaxing feel like that of a lounge;
4) Enhanced vehicle performance achieved through the combination of cutting-edge technologies;

- A KF-VE type non-turbo engine and a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) provide superior acceleration performance and high fuel efficiency of 23km/liter
- High-quality, comfortable ride and remarkable cabin quietness
- All vehicles fitted with the KF-VE type engine qualify for incentives under the Japanese government's "green" taxation system that provides incentives to owners of both of low emission and low pollution vehicles.
- Advanced preventive safety features realize high safety performance levels

5) Features such as door mirrors that are linked to the reverse gear realize a high level of utility that make you want to drive the MOVE.
