Late last year, PT Astra Daihatsu Motor (ADM) released a facelift for the Daihatsu Sigra car. Although there are no major changes in terms of engine or power, Daihatsu Sigra's driving feel is still impressive. Want to find out more? Following is the performance of the Daihatsu Sigra, which is priced starting at Rp. 119 million.

Daihatsu Sigra engine

Because the changes given are still in the form of a facelift, Sigra still uses the same engine that was used in the first generation. PT ADM still believes in using a 3NR-VE 4-cylinder engine with a 1.2L capacity and a 1KR-VE 3-cylinder engine with a 1.0L capacity.

The Daihatsu Sigra car with a 1.2L engine with Dual VVT-i technology is able to produce a maximum power of up to 87 hp at 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 108 Nm at 4,200 rpm. The 1.2L engine gets a choice of 5-speed manual transmission and 4-speed automatic.

Without any significant changes, the 1.0L engine with VVT-i technology certainly gets lower power, namely ‘only' 67 hp at 6,000 rpm and peak torque of 89 Nm at 4,400 rpm. It's just that the 1.0L engine is armed with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Judging from the options available, PT ADM does not seem to want to change the composition of the engine and transmission given. Although many other MPVs have used CVT transmissions to increase efficiency and a smoother ride.

Daihatsu Sigra performance

For urban cars that aim to bulldoze flat roads, the Daihatsu Sigra car's performance is arguably quite good. You feel comfort when you are in a stop-and-go condition. However, when taken to an uphill road outside the city, the performance was noticeably reduced.

Competitive compared to competitors in the same segment, the Daihatsu Sigra car relies on Electric Power Steering (EPS) technology to provide comfort and convenience when turning on the road or parking this car.

Daihatsu Sigra's driving sense is still quite impressive. The revision of the MacPherson Strut suspension at the front and the Semi Independent Torsion Axle Beam makes it less hard and not too soft, it feels comfortable even when driving on bumpy roads.

The safety features are far behind compared to the higher valued MPV. But Daihatsu cars already offer the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) braking system as driving assistance. It's just that the new Daihatsu Sigra type has an automatic, not manual transmission.

The driving position given is quite ergonomic. Steering is good enough with hand and body adjustment and ample leg room. Unfortunately the steering wheel of the Daihatsu Sigra car still doesn't get tilt and telescopic settings so it can't be adjusted.

You can feel the convenience from several new features that are implanted. One of them is a parking camera that will help you when parking. There is also a retractable mirror feature on the Daihatsu Sigra car that makes it easier for you when passing narrow streets.

Daihatsu Sigra fuel consumption

Fuel consumption is arguably one of the advantages of the Daihatsu Sigra car compared to its competitors in the Low MPV segment. As an LCGC car, of course the Sigra fuel system is more efficient, aided by Daihatsu's EFI technology.

Using an unleaded petrol engine, the fuel consumption of the 1.2L Daihatsu Sigra ranges from 16-17 km / l when driving on urban streets with all the congestion. However, when taken on a toll road at a stable speed, Sigra's fuel consumption can reach 20 km / l.

But for those of you who want a more efficient engine, there is a 1.0L 3-cylinder engine. When driving at constant speed, the Siegra car can provide material consumption of more than 20 km / l. But of course with a performance that is not more powerful than the 1.2L engine.

Even though there were many new rivals arriving, this Daihatsu Sigra car offers quite high performance and fuel consumption. Not to mention that its durability and easy maintenance make it one of the affordable MPV families that should be considered.

In addition, Daihatsu cars also offer various choices of the types given, even quite a lot according to your needs and budget. The Daihatsu Sigra has a total of 10 types available with a choice of a more efficient 1.0L engine and a more powerful 1.2L engine. Daihatsu Sigra prices range from IDR 120 million to IDR 162 million. Daihatsu Sigra car has 4 types of matic. Another popular Daihatsu car is Daihatsu Terios.

The price of the Daihatsu Sigra matic ranges from Rp. 152 million to Rp. 162 million.
