Daihatsu Cast Sport

Daihatsu Cast Sport Review: “Its sharp maneuverability makes you engrossed with it” by Rumiko Iwasada

Women overwhelmingly transform depending on the makeup artist, and it is the same with a car’s appearance. The Cast has the Activa, which attends to the car consumer’s needs, and the Style, which has a great transformation. However, the Cast Sport has an impressive Red color scheme, so it shows off a different side.

Its side mirrors and the red D-Pillar on the back of its body were embellished with red, but I like its lip part the most. Its sharp body edge, the LED, and the red straight line on its jaw part have high-precision balance that doesn’t make you get tired of staring at it.

It really has excellent quality. Its rose red interior is a bit different with its exterior, and it exudes an adult-like atmosphere. I don’t know what men think about it, but for women who are used to various red lipstick colors, the deepness of this coloring resounds in their mind.

The Sport doesn’t end with the excitement that its appearance gives off. When I drove this car, it had stable body rigidity, so I was able to drive it refreshingly. Then its high-precision tires are also extraordinary. It has a tendency to acquire higher road noise, but it was somehow tolerable. It doesn’t get stuck when cornering. Its length and width can be pulled at the same time, and it solidly takes its steady body movement as you move forward.

It really felt great. You would seem to feel engrossed when you experience its sharp maneuverability at once. However, what’s regrettable about it is that its steering wheel is far.

It may be for safe driving or estimated distance, but I think that driving position is the most important thing in driving. Since it is already outfitted with high-spec tires, I would prefer if it would be installed with a tilt/telescopic steering wheel.
