Daihatsu announced the launch in Japan of the new SONICA mini passenger car on June 19. The SONICA is a new concept car, developed in the pursuit of innovatively high quality driving performance for a small car. With target buyer focus on commonly known "freestyle couples" who place great importance on their own personalities and private time, this car anticipates recent lifestyle changes in Japan, as well as the shift of user preference toward smaller cars. The SONICA is the result of Daihatsu's continuing quest for passenger cars that give their users the driving enjoyment and cruising comfort they are seeking.

Key features of the newly launched SONICA:
(1) Car body design that brings refreshment and excitement
• Low, long body configuration that conveys an image of comfortable driving
(2) Spacious, comfortable interior that relaxes
• Low floor, long and wide interior space
• Roomy interior that gently encompasses passengers; bench seats that make cruising enjoyable
(3) Traveling performance ideal for cruising
• Turbo engine equipped with newly developed CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) achieves smoothly controlled yet powerful driving force, with low fuel consumption (2WD: 23.0 km/L*3, lowest among the class*2; 4WD: 21.0 km/L*3).
• Exhilarating steering feel, relaxing ride
• Low interior noise that accommodates lively conversation
