Daihatsu DN F-Sedan Concept – GIIAS 2017 Live

Daihatsu has unveiled a new concept car at the 2017 Gaikindo International Auto Show (GIIAS 2017). Called the Daihatsu DN F-sedan, the concept previews a sleek four door sedan coupe from Toyota’s budget car brand.

Daihatsu’s showstopper at the GIIAS 2017 is the DN F-Sedan concept. It is a four door coupe with a 1.2 L engine eligible for Indonesia’s Low Cost Green Car (LCGC) programme.

The concept features multiple eye-catching details like sharp LED headlamps unified by the chrome grille, LED lamps in the bumper and an LED strip running across the length of the boot functioning as the rear stop light. The tail gets sharp creases along with a dual tone finish for the bumper. The Daihatsu DN F-sedan concept has no B-pillar, and the rear doors are suicide type. It also gets multi-spoke dual tone alloys; sleek silver finish rear view mirrors with turn indicators and an all-black roof finish.

The cabin is as striking as the exterior with sports seats and a rather futuristic centre console that jumps from the dashboard. The sedan concept is 4,200 mm long, 1,695 mm wide and 1,430 mm tall. It sits on a wheelbase of 2,510 mm. Under the hood, the Daihatsu DN F-Sedan has a 1.2 L four-cylinder petrol mated to a CVT.

The concept does not have a B-pillar and features rear suicide doors. These features are unlikely to make it to the production spec model.

Daihatsu has turned a few concepts showcased at GIIAS into production models in the past. Case in point being the UFC-3 MPV concept that became the Daihatsu Sigra. If the Daihatsu DN F-Sedan concept becomes a reality, expect it to lose bits like the suicide door and the flashy LED headlights and tail lights, and feature smaller rims and conventional ORVMs.
