Chinese introduced to cute ute by Daihatsu D-01

Our brethren from across the Pacific have been going all out, in typical Autoblog fashion, during the 2006 Auto China motor show and have gotten live shots of the Daihatsu D-01 crossover that we introduced to you last week.

This newest soft-roader finds power from a 1.5-liter inline four, which produces 107 HP and 103 ft.-lbs. of torque. The styling is undoubtedly unobtrusive, with subtle cues that channel everything between Mazda and Mercedes, depending on the viewing angle. Along with a "sport" version that gets some extra attention in the ground effects department, a two-door variant will likely debut sometime next year.
