Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd. today announced that it will exhibit a compact SUV, the D-Compact 4X4, and a hybrid sports car, the HVS, along with a number of other new models at the 61st Frankfurt Motor Show.

D-Compact 4X4 (concept car world premier)
The D-Compact 4X4 is Daihatsu's proposal for a new compact SUV that's more powerful, more dynamic and more handsome. Its dynamic and sophisticated styling is an expression of the car's pure SUV performance and ease of use in the city. The newly developed 1.5-litre engine supports nimble acceleration in all speed ranges and delivers the powerful driving performance you'd expect of an SUV.

HVS (concept car world premiere)
A new lightweight sports car that reconciles environmentally friendly performance with the joy of driving at an unprecedented high level, the HVS combines a 1.5-litre engine and an advanced electrically operated 4WD hybrid system to draw out the full potential of hybrid technology. The result is a powerful and exhilarating drive reminiscent of a 2-litre car but with fuel economy exceeding that of a conventional 1-litre car. The rear electric motor transmits power via a drive-control mechanism that drives the left and right wheels separately for increased stability during high-speed cornering.

Isn't that the new RAV4? I want a Daihatsu, one of the old microvans or pickups you occasionally see on college campuses.

Sure looks look a chop of the new Rav4 to me. I love those Daihatsu microvans. I always check them out when I am down in the Caribbean. I think I would buy one if they were street legal here.

I know where a pickup is for sale, its powder blue and had a really tiny bed on it. The last school I dropped out of had a ton of Microvans that they used for maintenance. Wasn't one of the first cars on Pimp My Ride a Microvan? Edited by Satty

I see the vans for sale at the county fair every year. The things are so small, they look like you could roll them on their side with your bare hands. Definitely not street legal, though. Too bad. Trick it out the right way and it would make a really cool commuter vehicle that gets great gas mileage.
