Until very recently, buying an MPV-style vehicle meant sacrificing any semblance of style. Sitting behind the wheel of a bloated testament to lost youth is never particularly appealing, so many manufacturers have thought of ways of making the experience a bit cooler. At the smaller end of the scale is Daihatsu's Materia, a car that shows it's hip to be square. Affordable when new and now extremely tempting as a used buy, here's what to look out for when shopping for one.
Just because the Daihatsu Materia wasn't for everyone, doesn't mean it won't be for you. It seemed to appeal to either very young families attracted by its sharp styling or very old buyers attracted to its value for money and ease of access. It was the big bit in the middle that the Materia seemed to miss out on, but there is a fairly healthy stock of used vehicles available and despite pulling out of the new car market, Daihatsu maintains that the supply of spares and after sales service will continue. Because Daihatsu in the UK is part of the IM Group, which also imports Subaru and Isuzu, we see no reason why that shouldn't be the case.
