Daihatsu has showcased two SUV concepts at the ongoing Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show, the FX concept and the FT concept. The FX concept hints at a future crossover for the brand while the larger FT concept is expected to make way for a full-size flagship SUV.
The FX concept uses a B-pillar-less design with the front and rear doors hinged on opposite ends. At the front, the concept crossover features LED headlamps on either side of a narrow rectangular grille, with a thick strip of chrome running the width of the front fascia just below. The front bumper gets a prominent hexagonal central air dam along with LED daytime running lamps, black body cladding and a faux skid plate. On the flanks, the concept continues to sport body cladding along with black wing mirrors and blacked out door elements. The rear of the concept car features LED tail-lamps, and also gets a thin band of chrome running the width of the rear and a bumper with black body cladding and a faux skid plate flanked by vertically stacked exhausts.
Inside, the concept crossover gets a dual-tier all-digital instrument cluster along with sporty- looking front seats, a dual-tone interior, a panoramic sunroof, a flat-bottomed three-spoke steering and chrome and silver trim inserts across the cabin. No details were revealed about the engines to be featured in the FX concept.
The second reveal, the FT concept, gets a large vertical slat grille with LED inserts with LED headlamps placed on either side. The bumper gets high set fog-lamps with chrome surround and black body cladding along with a faux skid plate. On the sides, the SUV gets a tapering window line with chrome along the lower edge, black body cladding and silver side skirts. The roof line of the concept tapers gently towards the rear. At the back, the SUV concept gets large wrap-around LED tail-lamps, black body cladding, and silver body cladding on the bumper with LED fog lamps on the edges. An integrated spoiler is seen above the tailgate.
Inside, the FT concept gets a dual-tier dashboard split by a section of blue ambient lighting elements. The dashboard is finished in contrast-stitched leather on the top and gets a brushed aluminium finish on the lower section. The instrument cluster is an all-digital unit. In addition, the concept features a freestanding display for the infotainment system. Other details include white leather upholstery for the seats and doors, and chrome and brushed aluminum inserts around the cabin.
As with the FX concept, Daihatsu did not provide any engine details about the FT concept SUV.
