Daihatsu models 'ideal for the recession'

Tue, 23 Jun 2009
Daihatsu has suggested it may have the answer for people looking at buying a car that can help them reduce running costs.

The manufacturer claimed its autos could be a great option for motorists keen to save money in the face of the recession.

It stated its whole range is kitted out with "superbly efficient engines" and its models boast "some of the lowest emissions in their classes".

This may mean owners can save money at the pump and reduce the amount they spend on road tax.

Customers who opt for the 1.0-litre Sirion will qualify to pay vehicle excise duty of £35 a year, while people who buy the Terios 4x4 can expect an annual bill of £170.

Those buying the first car under the scrappage scheme will be able to drive away in the auto for £6,320.

Meanwhile, the latter model is due to go on display for a week at the Eastgate Shopping Centre in Inverness from July 6th.
