On August 20, Daihatsu unveiled their recently updated Xenia at the 2015 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS).
The Xenia is a 7-passenger MPV with three rows of seating that Toyota and Daihatsu developed together for the Indonesian market. Toyotaâ€™s version is called the Avanza and Avanza Veloz. Since it was released in 2004, the Xenia has been a highly popular model in Indonesia and continues to be a best seller.
For this minor upgrade, Daihatsu has installed a new 1.3-liter engine along with changes to its exterior and cabin. This new engine has improved its fuel efficiency by around 16%. In addition, the suspension has been tuned to generate less noise and vibration as well as enhanced driving stability and comfort.
The Daihatsu Xenia is priced at 151 ~ 187 million rupiah (approx. 1.35 ~ 1.67 million yen) with a monthly sales target of 5,000 units.
