At 2015 Gaikindo Indonesian International Auto Show (GIIAS) the Japanese automaker, Daihatsu introduced two new concept cars. First is a crossover, and the last is an SUV.
FX Concept is a concept car that may preview an upcoming compact crossover from Daihatsu. According to company, it is tough enough to stand up to the rigors of off-road running. Up front, Daihatsu’s designers give modern design featuring four boxy and sleek headlights, honeycomb grille, and chrome accent below the headlights and grille. Meanwhile, on the lower part we can see trapezoidal grille and LED Daytime Running Lights on the left and right.
At the rear, there are LED taillights with unique shape and chrome accent below the taillights. Meanwhile the rear bumper is integrated with skid plate and quad-exhaust to add sporty look. Daihatsu FX Concept has 3,800 mm long, 1,690 mm wide, and 1,580 tall. It means that its dimension is bigger than Renault Kwid, but smaller that Honda HR-V.
Alongside the FX Concept, Daihatsu unveiled another concept car, named FT. It’s a 7-seater SUV that probably will replace the old Terios. The exterior design is more masculine, and looks tough. Up front, it features big LED headlights, big fog lamps, and chrome grille. At the rear, its LED taillights shape reminiscences me to the old Pajero Sport.
Inside, the Daihatsu FT Concept features a digital instrument cluster, push-start ignition, leather seats and polished metal accents on the dashboard, four-spoke steering wheel and center console.
