Following the refreshed Subaru Stella, we bring you its sister kei car from the Daihatsu brand. The “New Move” has been officially launched in Japan, promising a more engaging drive and better fuel economy... somehow.
In essence, the car is just a facelift of the fifth-generation Move, with no big changes made to a car that was introduced two years ago.

However, the Move is still quite interesting because it’s the first kei car ever to come with crash-avoidance system (optionally, not standard). As with all other such systems, it detects obstacles and automatically applies the brakes at city speeds.

Limited by kei car regulations, the New Move comes in at 3.39 meters long and is powered by a KF-VE 660 cc normally-aspirated engine producing 52 PS 6,800 rpm and 60 Nm at 5,200 rpm. It’s available only with a CVT, but optionally you can order it with 4WD.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
