It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will be positioned below the Daihatsu Xenia.

Following the spyshots of an all new Toyota MPV reportedly called the Toyota Calya, Autonetmagz reports that Daihatsu will introduce a rebadged version of the Calya, which will be called the Daihatsu Sigra.

The relationship between the Toyota Calya and Daihatsu Sigra will be similar to that of the Toyota Avanza and Daihatsu Xenia, two of the most popular MPVs in Indonesia. Both the Calya and Sigra will be positioned under the Avanza and Xenia, will be marketed as low-cost MPVs, and rival the Datsun GO+.

The Daihatsu Sigra is based on the Daihatsu Ayla (Toyota Agya) hatchback, and the exterior styling will draw influence from the Daihatsu UFC-3 Concept. Under the hood, reports suggest that the Sigra/Calya will be powered by the Toyota Etios’s 1.2-liter petrol engine, and transmission choices would include manual and automatic gearboxes.

Both the Toyota Calya and Daihatsu Sigra will be sold as LCGCs (Low Cost Green Car) which, according to Indonesian regulations, must pack a petrol engine displacing between 980 cc – 1,200 cc and is capable of a fuel economy of at least 20 km/L. It should also be manufactured in Indonesia with a high degree of localization.
