Indonesia Live – Daihatsu Xenia Indigo mini MPV
Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
A similar kit will be commercialized soon.
PT Astra Daihatsu Motor (ADM) has presented a series of special editions, besides three concept cars, at the 2014 Indonesia International Motor Show.
The Daihatsu Xenia Indigo, based on the Xenia, is one of them, that showcases the customization potential in the vehicle. The R&D team at Daihatsu have modified this car with ‘exotic’ and ‘elegant’ as the keywords.
The vehicle is draped in a special Purplish Blue body colour.
Called Indigo because of the paint, the car gets exclusive front and rear bumper, spoiler, side skirts, backdoor garnishes, rims, exhaust, headlamp and taillamp. The interior does not undergo many changes except for the matching upholstery colour, sporty pedals and a new steering wheel.
According to the project development head, there are no changes to the engine, chassis and suspension. This implies that the vehicle will be powered by the 1,298 cc engine that develops 92 PS (90.7 bhp) at 6,000 rpm and 11.9 kg-m (116.6 Nm) at 4,400 rpm.
In stock condition, the car measures 4,140 mm x 1,660 mm x 1,685 mm (LxWxH) with a wheelbase of 2,655 mm.
Daihatsu will offer a similar customization pack at the dealerships in the future.
