Daihatsu is set to introduce the all-new fourth generation Japan-only Tanto next month, replacing the outgoing model that has been around since 2013.
As before, the all-new Daihatsu Tanto can be had with two distinctive designs – a regular Tanto X and a sportier Tanto Custom RS.
The all-new Tanto will be the third model to be built on new Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) platform, after the Mira:es and Mira Tocot. The DNGA platform is a derivative of Toyota’s own TNGA platform, developed specially for Daihatsu's range of kei cars.
Apart from its new platform, the all-new Tanto boasts a new Miracle Walk-Through Package, allowing owners to walk right into the driver’s seat. This is made possible by the all-new Tanto’s power sliding door and a driver seat that can slide back by a whopping 540 mm.
In addition to that, the all-new Daihatsu Tanto will receive a number of segment-first advanced driver assistance systems, such as Lane Keep Control (LKC), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), and Smart Panorama Parking Assist.
More details of the all-new Daihatsu Tanto, including powertrain details and output figures will be made known once the model is officially launched next month.
