The Daihatsu Luxio is a 7 seat MPV produced by Daihatsu. First introduced in Indonesia in 2009, the Luxio is equipped with a 1.5 liter engine and a platform based on the Daihatsu Gran max. Like its brother, the Luxio has a boxy design meant to make the most efficient use of space possible. As the result, it has plenty of legroom and headroom. Ground clearance is also designed to withstand the road conditions in Indonesia. The name Luxio ressembles luxury.

Engine and Transmission

The Luxio is powered by the 1495 cc 3SZ-VE Inline-4 with DOHC and VVT-i. The engine is a bit underpowered for the car, making acceleration woeful,but the slow acceleration was paid by its huge cabin space.


In road tests by Mobilmotor magazine, the Luxio sprinted from 0-100 km/h in 17 seconds - a second slower than it rival, the Suzuki APV. Fuel consumption was 8.4 km/l while braking from 100-0 km/h took 59.4 m in 3.7 seconds.


Warranty options and scheduled maintenance information should be mentioned here.


The D trim has no 3rd row seatbelts, and ABS is not available on this trim. On the X & M trims, 3 point seat belts are standard in each row, and ABS is an option.

Unique Attributes

Unlike the APV, the Luxio has a sliding door which is very convenient for ingress-egress in tight spaces.Cabin space is also bigger than the one in Suzuki APV.


The interior is two-tone in trim. The upper quarter trim is dark in color to minimize light reflection from the sun to the windscreen. The lower three-quarter trim is light beige to enhance a feeling of spaciousness. Dark gloss details are added to make the dashboard look and feel luxurious. The shift knob is located higher up than normal shift knobs for easier ergonomics.However,some people complained about the plastic quality which feels cheap.

According to magazine reviews, the suspension of Luxio is too rigid for the road conditions in Indonesia.Although its suspension is rigid,owners found that this car has a big body roll feeling. Some have also complained about the seat comfort which makes the hip get tired easily.Some also said that the car is lack of lumbar support.

The most common criticism, however, is the woeful noise insulation inside the cabin. When the driver depresses the horn, the sound of the horn penetrates into the cabin which Indonesian customers find annoying. Some also said that there is a cheap metallic sound produced when closing the door.Owners also noticed a noisy sound produced from the second row air conditioner.

Design quirks and oddities

Daihatsu claims that the design is based on Toyota Alphard,the most popular luxury car in Indonesia.Many people call it "Baby Alphard" as the design is like a smaller Toyota Alphard.


  • The Luxio won "The Small Van of the Year 2009" in Mobilmotor Indonesia magazine.
