The new Daihatsu Extol is a micro-van with compact dimensions. Nevertheless, its forward-mounted cabin area, greater height and relatively boxy shape allows for much bigger cargo area say compared to a Ford Fiesta.
Its size makes it ideally suited to urban areas, where it swerves easily through busy streets.
The new Daihatsu Extol has a decent payload and easy access to the load area that should make life easy for multi-drop delivery drivers.
The large volume cargo area suits those who carry bulky items, so it's a good choice for florists and caterers too.
Inside, the cabin is narrow on account of the slim shape, but yet it feels comfortable and spacey.
Unfortunately, there's no seat height adjustment but the steering wheel does adjust for height.
The 1.3-litre engine is like the one in the Toyota Yaris supermini, so it's quite sophisticated and there is a five-speed manual gearbox.
The cargo area measures 1.7m long, 1.3m wide and 1.17m high, giving a cargo volume of 2.2 cubic metres. It can take a payload of 615kg.
The Extol has a low asking price and dealers sometimes do special offers.
Daihatsu is part-owned by Toyota and built in Japan, which is enough reason to expect more from this van.
It needs servicing every 9000 miles. Though there are apparently no official fuel consumption figures to back the claim, the engine can be said to be suitably economical in other applications.
