The Daihatsu Naked was a Kei car made by Daihatsu. Presented on the Tokyo Motor Show in 1999,[2] it was built between 2000 and 2004. It was available with a 659cc petrol engine and either two or four wheel drive. The styling included features such as ridges in the doors and exposed hinges and bolts, designed to make the car appear rugged. The Naked was an early example of styling features from off-roaders being used on road cars; this idea has since been used on cars such as the Citroen C3 XTR and the Volkswagen CrossPolo. The interior styling has similarities to that of the original Fiat Panda, with plastic mouldings that resemble the fabric on the Panda's dashboard.[1]
