Daihatsu Sirion (2005–2009)

What's good

1.0 litre version gets high praise from readers. Between September 2005 and June 2007 one covered 60,000 trouble free miles, averaging 61mpg and at under 121g/km VED is only £35.

Reader reports an average 38mpg in town from a 1.3 manual.

What to watch out for

Imports suspended November 2009 due to unfavorable Sterling/Yen rate.

23-5-2014: No UK distributor so parts for Sirion are getting expensive. For example: £329 to replace exhaust system aft of cat converter.
