2015 Daihatsu Copen leaked ahead of its official debut

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 20, 2014

Daihatsu revealed the fact that it will unveil its new 2015 Copen next month but several brochure scans emerged today on the Web. Looking almost identical with the Kopen Concept that was unveiled back in October at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, the new 2015 Daihatsu Copen uses a 3-cylinder 12-valve naturally-aspirated engine that delivers 64 hp (47 kW) at 6,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 92 Nm at 3,200 rpm.

The engine is offered as standard with a five-speed manual transmission, while as an option Daihatsu offers a seven-speed super active CVT. According to Daihatsu, the new Copen uses a customizable composite body that features 13 removable outer plates.

The soft top can retract itself in just 20 seconds, making the Copen the perfect convertible for a sunny day in the city. Due to increased torsional rigidity, the small city car promises improved handling and ride comfort. As we said, the 2015 Daihatsu Copen will be officially unveiled next month and will go on sale early next year. [source: WorldCarFans]
