FTConcept_02

This is the Daihatsu FT Concept, which debuted alongside the FX Concept at the 2015 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) – the latter takes care of the crossover side of things, while the FT is a proper SUV study.

The seven-seater FT rolls in at 4,350 mm long, 1,750 mm wide and 1,690 mm tall, with a 2,685 mm-long wheelbase, which makes it very much a medium-sized offering.

Not much ventured about the concept – which is finished in a Warm Silver Metallic exterior shade – save that it features a “tough and sporty exterior and a futuristic dashboard” and rides on turbine-shaped five-spoke 18-inch alloys and 225/55 series tyres. Nothing subtle about that front grille, for sure.

The interior features a digital instrument cluster, push-start ignition, leather seats and plenty of shiny surfaces – if you’re into the stuff, the polished metal-finish on the four-spoke steering wheel and centre console are bound to impress. Lots of contrast stitching on show too.

Like the FX Concept, the FT features a rear-wheel drive layout, and it’s powered by a 1.5 litre engine – that’s all that’s mentioned, with no numbers offered in any form. Would something like that do well here – tell us what you think about the FT Concept.
