This All New Daihatsu Xenia 1.3 R 5-speed manual transmission. Is the highest variant that features a complete line-up of the All New Xenia. The model is also offered with a high 4-speed automatic transmission.
Machine used was the same: 4 cylinder 16 valve VVT-i 1298 cc K3-VE-coded. Output power and torque peak is still the same, namely 92 dk at 6,000 rpm and 122 Nm at 4,400 rpm.
So the engine response was not different from its predecessor. It's just the engine noise entering the cabin was reduced at the All New Xenia. It seems that noise control, dash silencer, and roof mounted silencer works well.
stamping on the clutch feels lighter than previous models. Would slightly reduce the burden of the left foot while wading the jammed streets. Shift the gear lever has not changed.
Substantial development in this section is precisely the application of Electronic Power Steering (EPS). EPS technology is no longer wearing pumps and hydraulic oil. But the use of electric motors attached to the steering gear or steering column to adjust the rotation torque of the steering wheel.
Application of EPS makes the latest round of Xenia steering feels lighter when driven than its predecessor. This condition is very fun while doing maneuvers in the workshop space is limited.
Unfortunately the secret workshop floor is very smooth and clean, so we can not feel the change in the suspension of the All New Xenia. Daihatsu gave the front stabilizer of this type, lower spring rate, and fine tuning the suspension geometry to provide better damping and stability.
