Daihatsu Mira Cocoa world debut at Tokyo Auto Show

As we previously showed you, at the 2009 edition of the Tokyo Auto Show you could find basically anything from supercars (the Lexus LFA ) to fuel cell vehicles (the Suzuki SX4 FCV) and from beautiful women to weird movie car replicas. Obviously, as the audience present at the 2009 edition of the Tokyo Auto Show does not consist (entirely) of men, women had to get something interesting for them to look at. The Daihatsu Mira Cocoa is exactly that.

The Daihatsu Mira Cocoa is a small hatchback that targets especially female buyers. The design of the car is very minimalistic, almost cartoonish. The Daihatsu Mira Cocoa will come with a base price tag of 1.000.000 Yen or the equivalent of 10.900 dollars and is currently available for ordering in Japan. The Daihatsu Mira Cocoa gets its power from a 0.6 liter three cylinder engine capable of developing 58 horsepower. The powertrain of the small city car also consists of either an all wheel drive system or a front wheel drive system and either a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) or a four speed automatic gearbox.

To be completely honest, the Daihatsu Mira Cocoa was officially launched back in August 2009 and hit the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) in September 2009. Still, you can say that this is the first time when we (the people living outside of Asia) get to see the Daihatsu Mira Cocoa live and not just in some photos taken by the Japanese automaker.

I would like to remind you a fabulous official statement of Daihatsu. More precisely, they said that the name Cocoa was chosen to ``express the fact that the car offers passengers the comfortable feeling and relaxed atmosphere one gets from drinking cocoa``. Coffee or beer anyone?
