The foldable seats give the car more space option while the overall car is spacious giving it area advantage. The five door option further makes easy entry and exit for passenger aside from loading luggage. This makes Daihatsu YRV 2003 a perfect small vehicle for picnic and party with few friends and colleague, giving a fine balance between work and fun.

Safe and Secure Experience


The Daihatsu YRV 2003 has safety and security under question, as the dual front air bags is there in car with Anti lock Braking System available in top models only. Even the reliability due to this reason and the weakness of trim panel, lead to identifying need for replacing when the car gets old enough. So we can say that this feature is on negative side of Daihatsu YRV 2003.

Features and Equipments


The multiple trim levels have different features available according to the package. Like the Daihatsu YRV 2003 in standard trim comes with Alloy Wheel as an optional feature, while the 4trak, Turbo and Lux50 has it as a standard item. The list continues from CD player, Central Locking, Cloth Seat trim, Driver’s AirBag, Electric Mirrors, Sun Roof, Remote locking feature. The Anti-lock Braking System, Body Colored Bumpers and Front Electric Windows come as a standard option in all.


The Daihatsu YRV 2003 comes as a narrow cabin vehicle with more than enough space for front passenger and two adults in the rear.  The seats appear as a bit uncomfortable though, with the noise around making journey chore full. If we talk about the experience,  people feel good enough with the folding seats to enhance space. The car back side can store more than enough luggage of small family with 5 people, adding value to the journey.
