Daihatsu news (at least in japan)

Hi there! I posted a message on the wrong side, so now I´m writing it again!

News #1
Daihatsu New Tanto : If you checked the Tokyo Motor Show cars, you´ll know what I´m talking about. New Tanto is a tall-height minicar for japanese market. It looks like a Move, but while the Move have "moved" to a more Premium style, Tanto is taking the original roots of the Move: great interior space, ultra utility, but, the Tanto don´t have the same wheelbase length! The current Move and Mira (Charade for UK, Cuore for others) shares the same wheelbase, but Tanto looks like it´s using another new plattform.

Potential relaunch of Sportrak?

While searching the net I ran across this concept car from Daihatsu which seems like it is an evolved version of the Sportrak and even has the name SP-4. The car was shown at the same show as they showed the sexy looking Copen which has been released in Japan and is in the process of being updated so it can be sold in europe.

So will there be a new 4x4 added to Daihatsu's line-up? Does it look any good or is it a bit ugly? Well i have my opinion what does everyone else think?
