The new Daihatsu Sirion is expected to be launched in Indonesia tomorrow, with February 13 the date reported by Kompas. The publication got the date from PT Astra Daihatsu Motor (ADM) marketing director Amelia Tjandra last week.

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 only difference is in the logo, nothing else,” she said.

The publication reports that estimated pricing for new Sirion in Indonesia is from Rp 180 juta (RM52,019) for the cheapest variant to Rp 190 juta (RM54,910) for the range topper. The price range was obtained from Daihatsu sales advisors, with actual pricing to be announced at the launch event.

The new Myvi, launched here in November 2017, is available with 1.3L (RM44,300 to RM48,300) and 1.5L (RM51,800 to RM55,300) engines. The outgoing Indonesian Sirion (the previous Myvi) was available in the Republic only with the 1.3L motor, so it remains to be seen if ADM will offer the new one with one or two engine options. The Sirion is no stranger to Indonesia’s creative car customisers – check out some wild examples here.
