    Daihatsu Mira Gino (2nd Gen) 2004-2009

    At 2006 Geneva Motor Show, Daihatsu introduced another of its retro-flavored small cars, this one dubbed the Trevis. The 3400mm-long, four-door minicar already is on sale in Japan as the Mira Gino. The Euro-market city runabout openly apes the front graphic of the original Mini, albeit with a pair of extra doors. The throwback design doesn’t extend as completely into the interior as some other heritage-minded vehicles, but the layout is simple and clean.

    The little ‘Hatsu is powered by a 58 horsepower, 1.0-liter DOHC tri-banger, which gets around 49 mpg on Europe’s city/highway combined cycle when hooked up to the standard five-speed manual.

    One might think that economy takes a back seat to performance, but the Trevis’ 0-62 mph time takes 12.2 seconds, more than respectable for a car in its class.

    The price is also not that bad for the European market. The basic Daihatsu Trevis Junior comes as low as €9,990, and the regular Trevis may be ordered for some €10,990 with such options as, for example, MOMO leather steering wheel. A car with automatic transmission will cost €970 more.

    That "Copen" interiors are awfull. The concept is rather nice but the price is out of context. It's also a shame it looks like a TT.
    By the way, who can find me some media pics of the early 90's Feroza? We've had one at home

    The Daihatsu Mira Gino is a kei car with distinctive retro styling made by the Japanese automaker Daihatsu. It is based on the more mainstream Daihatsu Mira and was first introduced to the Japanese market in 1999, with the second generation following in 2004. The second-generation model was also exported as the Daihatsu Trevis to some markets in Europe.

    For the second generation, the three-door version was dropped and it was only available as a five-door hatchback. The Mira Gino was discontinued in March 2009 and was replaced by the Daihatsu Mira Cocoa, also with retro styling albeit more original.

    The styling was again inspired by the Mini, although this time the new BMW Mini set the example.
