Yes, back to a more familiar sight – also spotted at the Daihatsu stand at IIMS was a bright yellow Sirion Sport concept, all decked out to captivate the young (and young at heart). The Sirion, as everyone already knows, is the Perodua Myvi for the Indonesian market, and the car was launched to much fanfare at last year’s edition of the show.
This year, things are undoubtedly quieter for the car, but PT Astra Daihatsu has decided to inject some life into the hatch and come up with a treatment that should get the bells ringing for modders. A prominent front bumper lip kicks things off, and side panel stickers unabashedly tell you what version it is. New alloys, replete with yellow edge lining, help things along.
Inside, the yellow theme continues, with splashes of the shade to be found on the door cards, seats, and even the steering wheel – which is a three-spoke sports type unit – gets a yellow accent line. The dash centre console features a bright silver finish, and sports pedals are to be seen, as are a couple of large tweeter units on the dashboard.
Surely befitting of an Extreme tag, PT Astra says that the Sirion Sport can be viewed as a spirited young best friend for youths, being active, dynamic, flexible and tough. I suppose it can.
