Quicker, More Relaxed New Cuore

Sun, 17 Feb 2002
While not quite as cheap and cheerful as the PerOdua Kelisa, the revised-for-2002 Daihatsu Cuore isn't far behind.

Prices now start at £5,995 on the road for the three-door 1.0 E, and this includes three years servicing, three years roadside recovery, and three years UNLIMITED MILEAGE warranty.

The three-cylinder twin cam 12 valve engine now develops 55PS at 5,200rpm and 83Nm (65.1 lb ft) torque at 3,600rpm. Top speed is 87mph, 0-60 takes a quite quick 12.5 seconds, combined consumption is 55.4mpg and CO2 emissions are 124g/km (£100 VED).

Fifth gear ratio is now stretched to 21.7mph per 1,000 rpm making the car a much better motorway cruiser than before. An automatic version is also available.
