Daihatsu Sigra (rebadged Toyota Calya) exterior, interior photographed
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Datsun Go+ rival to debut at the 2016 GIIAS in August.
One of the images reveals the cabin of the Daihatsu Sigra, which has 3 rows of theater style seating. The front seats have fixed headrests with manual seat height adjustments, while the middle and third row seats have adjustable headrests. The middle row has manual adjustments for access to the third row, although it’s unclear if it will have the tumble option.
Occupants in the third row seat get cup-holders and storage bins on both sides. It is reported to offer a headroom of 940 mm, 920 mm and 860 mm in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd row seats respectively, which is slightly more than the Datsun GO+ Panca, on paper. It offers 263 liters of boot volume with the third row seats up and 503 liters with the seats down, both of which are significantly higher than the Datsun GO+ Panca (48 liters and 347 liters respectively).
The front and rear ends of the Daihatsu Sigra have also been photographed, featuring cues from the Daihatsu UFC-3 concept as well as Daihatsu’s other products like the Ayla and Xenia. The Toyota Calya and Daihatsu Sigra will measure 4,070 mm long, 1,600 mm wide, 1655 mm high, and has a wheelbase of 2,525 mm and ground clearance of 180 mm.
Both the Calya and Sigra will offer an option between a 1.0 1KR-FE engine with 67 PS/89 Nm and the 1.2-liter 3NR-FE petrol engine with 88 PS and 108 Nm of torque. Transmission options will include a 5-speed manual as standard, while a 4-speed automatic gearbox is available for the 1.2 variant only.
