Daihatsu presents Sirion as a vehicle for urban areas and targets young people. Behind the dimensions of a small car, Sirion has an ergonomic interior. Third-generation Sirion has increased in terms of dimensions whose posture is lower than the previous generation for better control and stability. The cabin is now also wider than the old Sirion.
Daihatsu New Sirion does not offer major changes from the previous model, especially engine performance. Engine specifications offered by Sirion 2020 are still the same, and accentuate the fuel efficiency. Daihatsu has buried new features of the eco idle system, which is claimed to make engine performance more fuel efficient.
The engine still relies on the 1,300 cc 1NR-VE type similar to Xenia while for the other hatchbacks it has 1,400 cc and above. The Sirion engine is fortunately slightly larger than the 1,200cc Honda Brio RS and Suzuki Ignis.
In this class, which is also often called a city car, the products offered must also provide fuel consumption efficiency. Because in this market, economical machines will be the main consideration in consumers making choices.
Daihatsu Sirion Fuel Consumption is Friendly
After the Nissan March finished, the only city car with engines above 1,200 cc was left with the Daihatsu Sirion. New Daihatsu Sirion is still equipped with a 1300 cc engine with 93 hp power and 120 Nm of torque.
For consumption in cities with an average speed of 22 km / hour, Daihatsu Sirion can record 12.8 km / liter. Switching to out-of-town consumption with toll routes and an average speed of 90 km / hr. Sirion can reach 20 km / liter.

In actual testing, Ignis with the type of manual transmission is known to only be able to record fuel consumption of 15 km / liter. But the numbers displayed on the MID Ignis screen are generated with an average speed of only 17 km / hour. Quite economical but not the best.
Suzuki stuffed Ignis with a K12M coded engine with a capacity of 1,197 cc, or rounded up to 1,200 cc. The four-cylinder engine is noted to be capable of producing a maximum power of 82 hp at 6,000 rpm. Whereas the highest torque can reach 113 Nm at 4,200 rpm.
