    IIMS 2013: Daihatsu CUV Concept

    Daihatsu CUV Concept hints at the next Terios/Rush
    By Hafriz Shah

    Paultan

    The Daihatsu CUV Concept is the eighth and last of the Japanese small car specialist’s new unveilings at the Indonesian International Motor Show 2013. It joins the DR-Estate coupe, UFC-2 MPV, NC-Y and NC-Z small car pair and the Ayla GT, Luxury and X-Track concept vehicles at the Daihatsu stand, which is certainly the standout star of the entire show.

    It’s clear to see that the Indonesian market is high on the company’s radar, it pulling out all the stops at the nation’s premiere car event. Why wouldn’t it? Indonesia contributes to over 70% of Daihatsu’s total production volume outside its home market in Japan, coming out of a dedicated R&D and manufacturing centre on the outskirts of Jakarta.

    Making its world debut at IIMS 2013, the CUV Concept points at the future of Daihatsu’s small crossover offerings. It’s already being touted as a thinly-veiled preview of the next-generation Terios, which some may know as the model that spawned the Perodua Kembara and later, the Nautica. In Malaysia, a stretched version of the mini SUV is marketed as the Toyota Rush.

    I like it a lot, both the front end and that uniquely curved rear belt line. Nice profile too.

    I could see this marketed as a Scion competitor for the Nissan Juke in the U.S.... Not that I care for either design...

    Ummm, No Thanks. Awful, even the model. The front looks as if the designer of the new Jeep Cherokee had a hand in it.

    Interesting, but apart from the evoque-esque front light belt, it does strike me as sometime dated, as if it came from the late 1990s or early 2000s.
