Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd.
Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd. (hereinafter “Daihatsu”) announced today that P.T. Astra Daihatsu Motor (hereinafter “ADM”), its Indonesian subsidiary, will exhibit a total of seven commercial vehicles and show models at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show 2021 (GIIAS2021). Among the vehicles on display will be the XENIA, a compact MPV*1 that was fully remodeled and launched today. GIIAS2021 will be held in Jakarta from November 11 to 21. GIIAS was cancelled in 2020 due to the spread of COVID-19, and this year, the first time in two years that the event will be held, it will be a fusion of in-person and online events.
The new XENIA is the first B-segment compact car based on Daihatsu's Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA), a new generation of car-making. It is the first time for the XENIA to adopt the FF (front engine, front drive) layout and features a redesigned platform and a new CVT for a complete redesign. In addition to improving the spacious cabin space despite its compact body size, the new model offers improved basic performance and safety performance, as well as updated interior and exterior designs.
The Daihatsu booth at GIIAS 2021 will be divided into two main areas. In the family area, Daihatsu will display two new XENIAs, one each of the LCGC-compliant MPV Sigra and SUV Terios, which are seven-seater, three-row vehicles. In the youth area, five-seater compact cars will be exhibited, including two Rocky compact SUVs, which was launched in April this year, and one Ayla LCGC-compliant hatchback. One of the Rocky models is a show model customized with original colors and accessories based on the concept of "Neo Retro."
Going forward, Daihatsu will continue striving to be a company that plays an intimate part in the lives of its customers by contributing to the development of industry and human resources and the promotion of cars in Indonesia and other regions with a focus on ASEAN.
