1980 Daihatsu Charade XG
“The Car Created By Computer” was Daihatsu’s first foray into the passenger car market since the Compagno models of the 1960s, and trail-blazed the light car segment.
Charade was well ahead of its time, when most of the established names were rolling out rear-wheel driven cars, the Charade even in the late 70s was front wheel driven.
Back in the 80s, if you were to buy a 1000cc hatchback you had the liberty to choose among Suzuki Swift, Toyota Starlet, Nissan Pulsar, Mazda Familia, Subaru J10 & the Daihatsu Charade, with each available in multiple trim levels, multiple interior colors & engine configurations. Among all the available options, Daihatsu Charade was the most popular hatchback, not only in that era, but even after more than 30 years it can still be seen on our roads in considerable numbers & most of them are quite well maintained too.

The country produced everything from the world’s best compact hatches, pickups to the most sophisticated sports cars in those years, along with the sort of cool niche automobiles that get approved when automakers have lots of profit to play with.
