Daihatsu to debut three Kopen concepts in TokyoThu, 31 Oct 2013
Three new Daihatsu Kopen concepts have been revealed ahead of their unveiling at next month's Tokyo motor show.
The blue and orange concepts are the RMZ model – although they feature slight differences – while the green car is the XMZ model. The concepts measure in at 3,395mm long, 1,475mm wide and 1,275mm tall and, like the recently discontinued Copen, fit into the Japanese ‘Kei' light car category.
Based on the 2011 D-X concept, Daihatsu's latest concepts share have the same basic exterior shape and features such as the bulbous wheelarches and the upright, honeycomb grille.
The green XMZ concept features a lot of cladding along with a heavily sculpted bonnet and trunk, giving it a particularly rugged look.
Sharing the same body panels, headlamps and tail lamps, the blue and orange concepts are differentiated by the side mirror and wheel designs.
Inside, they feature the same driver-orientated layout with a simple IP and prominent center stack.
More details of the car will be unveiled at the Tokyo motor show, so keep an eye out for CDNLive's event coverage.
