The Daihatsu C open was only a marginal phenomenon in Germany, but a bestseller in his home country Japan . Nevertheless, the small folding roof convertible was discontinued in 2010 without a successor. At the Tokyo Motor Show, the car manufacturer is now giving a preview of a new Daihatsu Copen. The two studies Kopen KMZ and Kopen RMZ - yes, they actually write themselves with K - take up the concept of the old Copen again.
Daihatsu Kopen with two faces
It stays with the foldable one Aluminum hard top, front engine and two seats. The Kopen studies are 3.40 meters long, 1.48 meters wide and 1.28 meters high and thus fit into the Japanese K-Cars specifications. A 0.7 liter three-cylinder petrol engine, which is coupled to a CVT transmission, takes over the drive.
A special feature of the two Kopen studies is the modular structure. By simply replacing the body paneling, completely different appearances can be achieved. The Kopen RMZ follows classic lines, the RMZ almost looks like an off-road convertible.
Already at the end of 2012 in Indonesia and in 2011 at the Tokyo Motor Show Daihatsu presented very similar concepts.
