Daihatsu D-X: honey I shrunk the convertible, again

Apart from the steering wheel, seats and pedals, everything about this coupe convertible is tiny.

More's the pity

Apart from the steering wheel, seats and pedals, everything about this coupe convertible is tiny.

Daihatsu is no longer sold in Australia. A shame, really, because if the D-X ever makes it to production, we won't ever see it in a showroom.

Autobots, roll out!

The little convertible transforms into a coupe thanks to its two-piece folding roof.

A world in miniature

The tiny D-X is powered by an equally minuscule two-cylinder turbo engine.

Two please

There's not much to the car's rather spartan cabin, but it should seat two not-overly-large individuals in reasonable comfort.

The forebear

One day the D-X could replace the Copen that's still on sale in Japan.

Derek Fung travelled to the Tokyo Motor Show as a guest of Toyota Australia.
