Let’s ‘plagiarize’ Daihatsu Rocky Neo Retro Modifications at GIIAS 2021

DAPURPACU – One of the display units that attracted attention at the Daihatsu GIIAS 2021 booth was Rocky wrapped in a thick adventure look typical of an explorer SUV.

With the Neo Retro concept, the unit is based on the Rocky 1.0LR which has been equipped with ASA features as an active safety technology that is claimed to be the highest in its class.

Daihatsu Rocky Neo Retro is deliberately displayed to inspire owners who are young at heart and always want to be different, combined with combat green and black colors.

“This modification gives the impression of being tough and reliable. This car is expected to support the activities of adventurous fans,” said Mark Widjaja, Industrial Design Division Head of PT Astra Daihatsu Motor.

The embedded modifications include the addition of a roof rack on the roof and the use of 16-inch alloy wheels with a static radius design.

The tough and fierce impression is realized through the installation of a large tire profile like a semi-off road car, making it ready to go through various road conditions.

In terms of technology, Rocky 1.0L engine variant is equipped with Turbocharged to maximize performance and responsiveness when driving like a larger capacity engine.

Supported by CVT transmission, making driving acceleration smoother. Especially for the ASA (Advanced Safety Assist) variant, Rocky also embeds the latest advanced safety features with 6 functions that make driving safer, more comfortable and fun.

Not only Rocky 1.0L variant, Daihatsu also offers a special 1.2L engine type for customers who prefer fuel efficiency, with a 1.2L WA-VE 3-cylinder configuration.

The Rocky 1.2L is the first car to use the new engine which was specially developed for the Indonesian automotive market. As a result, more powerful performance when passing uphill, responsive and still fuel efficient.

The latest safety features embedded include HSA (Hill Start Assist), VSC (Vehicle Stability Control), ABS (Anti-Lock Brake System), and EBD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution).

Then there is the SRS Airbag feature for the driver and passengers and a rear parking camera that can help the driver’s visibility to be safer when maneuvering backwards.

In addition, Rocky is the first Daihatsu product in Indonesia to carry the DNGA (Daihatsu New Global Architecture) platform technology.

This platform was developed with the concept: High Quality at Affordable Prices, Latest Technology, and attention to the smallest details such as size, weight, price, and time, to produce more efficient vehicles.

Mark admitted that he was happy that the modified Rocky concept car on display had received the attention of visitors at GIIAS 2021 since the first day.

“The design of the Rocky Neo Retro concept is oriented towards the younger generation who always want to be different, and want to have an adventure,” he concluded. [dp/MTH]
