The TANTO was launched in 2003, establishing a new category of extra-space mini vehicles. It has since adopted the Miracle Open Door with built-in pillar, the first mini vehicle to do so*3, and double-sided Power Sliding Doors in subsequent models, becoming a core model for Daihatsu that has been well received by a wide range of customers.

In conjunction, the new TANTO FUN CROSS model will be added to the growing market of active extra-space mini vehicles as an active vehicle that goes beyond the everyday and allows people to spend time in a fun way.
