Scrappage scheme makes Daihatsu Sirion amazing value

5th June 2009 Print
Daihatsu Sirion Daihatsu’s class-beating, budget-busting Sirion just got even better – with the new £2000 ‘Scrappage allowance’ meaning prices start at just £6,320 for the economical, practical and stylish entry-level Sirion 1.0; making it the perfect car for the current economic climate: lean and green, yet fun too.

Naturally, fuel economy is outstanding for the Sirion – with the 1.0 litre model giving a money saving 56.5 mpg on the Combined Cycle (manual). Meanwhile, CO2 emissions are among the lowest in the Sirion’s class at just 118 g/km, resulting in only £35 per year Road Tax. And such green values are not at the expense of performance either, as the 1.0 litre cylinder engine propels the 890 kg shell to a whisker under 100 mph and 0-60 mph in 13.5 secs.

Paul Hegarty, Operations Director, Daihatsu Vehicle Distributors Limited, said: “We pride ourselves on building ultra-reliable, practical, fun-to-drive cars for the twenty-first century motorist, and the Sirion is a brilliant example of this philosophy. The new Scrappage allowance makes the already great value Sirion even more affordable. And, combined with our unlimited mileage five-year warranty offer, there’s never been a better time to buy into the Daihatsu brand at entry level – especially now we have been awarded 1st place for reliability in the coveted Auto Express ‘Driver Power’ awards.”

Equipment levels are also very generous for such a reliable, budget vehicle – far in excess of what its competitors offer. The Sirion comes fully loaded with air conditioning, six airbags, remote central locking, height adjustable steering column, electric windows front and rear, tachometer and fuel consumption display, whilst giving class leading performance, economy and emissions.
