Practical consumption Daihatsu Cuore: lost economy

The good heart in the right place

Daihatsu Cuore 1.0 12V Premium

Long before Citybugs (Aygo, C1, 107) were poured over us, Daihatsu supplied compact, economical models. Yet the story ends on a negative note for this brand, because it withdrew from Europe ten years ago this year. We use this anniversary to see what we are actually missing: how economical was the last Daihatsu Cuore?

There is something interesting to report about the Citybug triplets Toyota Aygo, Citroën C1 and Peugeot 107/108. The ‘cuore’ of these little ones, a 1.0-liter three-cylinder, has its origins at Daihatsu and is even, slightly further developed, supplied in the new Aygo

Consumption Daihatsu Cuore 1.0

The car we focus on in this article is the latest generation Daihatsu Cuore. This was introduced in 2007, the last new units were delivered in January 2013. In the AutoWeek Consumption Monitor we find values ​​from 17 drivers with such a Cuore, who together record a consumption average of 1 in 19 (5.3 l/100 km).

The most economical Cuoreur kept track of consumption for one year and 13,720 kilometers. This resulted in a very decent average of 1 in 24.7 (4.04 l/100 km). The second least economical driver drove considerably more: 17,632 kilometers in six months. With a consumption of 1 in 22.3 (4.49 l/100 km), those kilometers were in any case relatively cheap.

We see it more often in this section: really little driving does not do the consumption any good. Take, for example, the driver who drove less than 5,000 kilometers in 2.5 years, which determines the lower limit of 1 in 13.6 (7.4 l/100 km). No, then even 5,000 kilometers per year will be considerably more favorable. This driver shows that 1 in 16.1 (6.2 l/100 km) is still possible.

Finally, we would like to compare the consumption of the Cuore against the Toyota Aygo, with which it shares its engine. Drivers of this Citybug achieve an average of 1 in 19.5 (5.2 l/100 km). With another Citybug, the Citroën C1, we already concluded: ‘Aygo drivers do better’. We can now add: ‘Cuore drivers too.’
