As a low cost compact, the Daihatsu Cuore Hatchback comes with pretty generous features as standard although the interior design and trim is pretty austere. Yet the Cuore surprises, with standard lineaments that take in air conditioning, radio and CD player sound system hooked up to six speakers, electric exterior mirrors, front and rear fog lamps, central locking, air conditioning, power steering, front and back electric windows and sixteen inch alloy wheels with all season tyres.
With the Cuore Hatchback, Daihatsu have done what they can with a limited budget to provide reasonable levels of safety for the driver and passengers benefit, with front and rear airbags as well as all disc brakes (ABS) coming as standard.
As you would expect from a compact hatchback, the Cuore is economical as far as fuel consumption levels are concerned, averaging 35.5 miles per gallon, with 38.5 miles per gallon being recorded in the city and around 32 miles per gallon on the open road, according to the few unofficial reviews available.
The Daihatsu Cuore is a first class car for the money, and it has to be, because it is competing in probably the most crowded and competitive niche of them all these days and has almost numerous rivals, among the many are the Daewoo Matiz, Hyundai Amica, Subaru Fiori, Hyundai Excel, Daihatsu Charade and the Suzuki Swift.
