Runout Move specced up

DAIHATSU is looking to go out with a bang with the existing Move range, offering a bigger engine, improved specification and better fuel economy all at the same price. The vehicles will be replaced in March of next year by the new Move, but until then Daihatsu is certain the changes to the existing line-up will see a further increase on already booming sales in both corporate and retail sectors.

Engine size has increased from 1.5 to 1.6 litres, giving an extra urban fuel consumption of 46mpg (manual) and additional torque. The Grand Move specification includes twin airbags, power steering, engine immobiliser, central locking, electric door mirror adjustment, headlight/fog lamp warning buzzer and four-speaker radio-cassette system.

Additions to the Grand Move+'s spec include four-channel ABS, heated mirrors, a tonneau cover, roof spoiler, air conditioning, electric windows and folding armrests which incorporate cup-holders. Prices remain at £11,595 for the Grand Move and £13,595 for the Grand Move+.

Daihatsu sales for the first 10 months of this year totalled 8,074 - a 32% rise on 1997's 10-month total of 6,126. Simultaneously corporate sales have increased 69% to a 10-month total of 2,727 (1,612), which is already ahead of last year's 1,780.
