Sirion 1.3 Power?

Forum: 

Hi there. I'm new here and thinking of buying a Sirion 1.3 SL and I want to be sure to get one with 100bhp. Wikipedia says they have a 1.3 litre 4-cylinder 86 bhp unit. As of 2001, 1.3L models have 102 hp

Did this upgrade come with the second-generation or is this all nonsense? If I'm viewing a car, how can I tell what I'm looking at?

What about this car?

Many thanks!

Think the newer 1.5 is 102bhp, 1.3 87bhp although the 1.3 Rally 2 is around 110bhp.

Sirion Power !!

2003 Sirion Rally 4. And I love it.
Don't like the new shape Sirion much.Sorry.

The new Square Box type Sirion only has 102 bhp if you buy the 1500 version.All the rest are 86 bhp.

Before 2005 (Retro Version) Which I have.

All models are 101 bhp with the 4 Cylinder K3 engine.

The Rally 2 and 4 are approx 107 bhp.:)
But I have heard that some of the very late ones were updated a bit more under development of the Rally engine.
And some had better cams fitted (Exhaust and Intake) and the timing was different.
So you could get up to 117 bhp.
Whether this last bit is true -
I have been unable to find out. Sad

Thanks for the replies. Is 86bhp enough to provide for an entertaining little car on a budget? I take it they're not painfully slow?

Many thanks

They say it's pretty good. !!

Daihatsu have obviously changed the gearing etc and I understand the new shape Sirion can "cut a rug" pretty well.
But they also roll quite badly on corners if you are too fast.
The 1500 is your best bet to be honest.

Depends what you want it for.
