The Daihatsu Materia is a Mini MPV manufactured by the Japan Automaker Daihatsu.

In the tenth series of Top Gear (current format), Jeremy Clarkson jokingly compared the Materia to the Ascari A10, saying, "Sure the Daihatsu Materia is a good car...but on balance...I'd go for the big, yellow, shouty car instead."
This generation of the Materia will also be sold in Japan in late 2009 as the Subaru Dex.
