The Daihatsu Materia is a mini MPV manufactured by the Japanese automaker Daihatsu.

First generation[eedit | eedit soorce]

It is based on the platform of the second generation of the Daihatsu Sirion and is largely identical to the second generation of the Toyota bB.

Comes in 1.3L an 1.5L varieties with a 4WD version in the pipeline, manual and Auto versions. (Currently in UK they have the 1.5L Version 16 November 2007) 0-60 mph times 10.8 seconds for manual, and 13.7 seconds for Auto (UK Versions)

Maximum speed of 106 mph and 102 mph for the automatic.

In the tenth series of Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson jokingly compared the Materia to the Ascari A10, saying "Sure the Daihatsu Materia is a good car... but on balance... I'd go for the big, yellow, shouty car instead."

This generation of the Materia is sold in Japan as the Daihatsu Coo and the Subaru Dex and mainly as the Toyota bB.
