A little bit of everything

Daihatsu has introduced eight new concepts at the Indonesia International Motor Show.

First up, the UFC 2 is an evolution of the UFC concept that debuted at last year's show. Unfortunately, it's less attractive than its predecessor as it eschews the swoopy styling for a dash of Toyota blandness. Regardless, Daihatsu says it has a seven-seat interior and "incorporates convenience that is indispensable in everyday life."

Likewise, the D-R Estate is a revised version of the D-R roadster that also debuted at last year's show. As the name suggests, it jettisons the open air cockpit for a fixed hardtop but at least it adopts a more powerful 660cc engine.

The CUV concept won't win any awards for its name but it has a funky design with rearrangeable rear seats and a split rear door that "opens upward and downward."

Moving on, the Ayla GT, X-track and Luxury concepts hint at future variants of the Ayla. The models are pretty self-explanatory as the GT is a sporty concept, the Luxury is an upscale concept and the X-track is a ruggedized concept with off-road inspired styling.

Lastly, the NC-Y and NC-Z concepts preview a potential model that could slot below the Ayla.

Daihatsu to Exhibit Eight Concept Cars at the Indonesia International Motor Show 2013

PT Astra Daihatsu Motor (hereinafter ADM), a subsidiary of Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd.
(hereinafter Daihatsu) in Indonesia, will exhibit eight models that will make their world debut
as well as a technological booth, AYLA Technology, at the Indonesia International Motor
Show 2013 to be held on September 19 (Thurs.) through September 29 (Sun.) in Jakarta,

Daihatsu, exhibiting under the slogan, “Daihatsu is our best friend. [Daihatsu Sahabatku] ”
will take on the theme of “Compact ECO Mobility Best Friend” at this motor show, and with
an aim to be a leading company in compact cars, will appeal to the audience by
demonstrating the craft of making fuel-efficient and affordable cars cultivated in Japan and
Daihatsu’s initiatives that accelerated its localization on various fronts.

UFC 2 is a concept car that is an evolved version of UFC, which was exhibited in 2012, and
was designed primarily by ADM. By taking advantage of Daihatsu’s compact car technology,
the car incorporates convenience that is indispensable in everyday life in Indonesia,
allowing a compact body that makes it easy to drive, while simultaneously having a large
enough interior to seat seven people.

The CUV is a dream-inspiring Cross-over Utility Vehicle with a sporty exterior that can be
used in various scenarios by utilizing its split rear door that opens upward and downward as
well as by creating space in the rear by rearranging the rear seats.

D-R Estate, which is also an evolved version of D-R that was exhibited in 2012, balances
both the joy of driving and fuel efficiency, as it is outfitted with a high-quality material interior
styled elegantly and creatively, while equipped with a 660 cc engine.

AYLA World will address the future possibilities of AYLA that was launched for sale earlier
through the three concepts, namely the AYLA GT, an aerodynamic type that will appeal to
sports-minded customers, the tough AYLA X-track (cross track), which can handle off-road
conditions, and the AYLA Luxury, which offers a step up in terms of its luxurious feel.

NC-Y and NC-Z are concept cars that were developed in two ways in pursuit of an even
more compact form than the AYLA. The AYLA is a model that has inherited the fuel
efficiency and affordability that were realized in the Mira e:S. Meanwhile, the NC-Y adds a
practical, intellectual image and the NC-Z adds a dynamic, cool image to this concept,
indicating the direction of products that lie beyond the AYLA.

I really like the NC-Y Concept, as a second-car for short distance use.
