The Daihatsu Consorte was a small sedan sold by the Japanese automaker Daihatsu from 1969 to 1977. It was based on the Toyota Publica, and it's name, meaning "consort" in Italian, reflected Daihatsu's newly established affiliation with Toyota. It replaced the Compagno as Daihatsu's bigger sedan.

Initially, the Consorte was available only as a two-door sedan and with Daihatsu's own 1.0-litre engine. In 1971, Publica's 1.2-litre was added to the range. In 1973 a four-door sedan version joined the lineup, only to be dropped for 1974, with the launch of the Daihatsu Charmant. The 2-door was superseded in 1977 by the Daihatsu Charade.
