PT Astra Daihatsu Motor (ADM) is set to introduce the new 2018 Daihatsu Sirion in Indonesia next month. This was revealed by marketing director Amelia Tjandra to Kompas.

Like before, the new Daihatsu Sirion is a rebadged Perodua Myvi and will be imported CBU from Malaysia. Tjandra said that the Indonesian market Daihatsu Sirion will be similar to the new Myvi in specifications and will not be a “downgrade” from the Perodua.

“The Indonesian Sirion will be coming from Malaysia, and will be launched in February. The only difference is in the logo, nothing else. The car has achieved five stars in the ASEAN NCAP crash test,” she said.

The new Myvi, launched here in November 2017, is available with 1.3L and 1.5L engines. The outgoing Indonesian Sirion (the previous Myvi) is available in the Republic only with the 1.3L engine, so it remains to be seen if ADM will offer the new one with one or two engines. The Sirion is no stranger to Indonesia’s creative car customisers – check out some wild examples here.

The impressive new Myvi made it to our annual writer’s Top Five list. Find out more about the homegrown hero in our written and video reviews.
