Toyota bB

and Daihatsu Coo

The second generation Toyota bB and Daihatsu Coo are both essentially the same car, a compact aimed at the youth market. Designed to be stylish, accessible and with the driver’s emotions in mind thanks to mood lighting and an emphasis on sound for the bB variant.

The bB and Coo had all of the features you’d expect from a modern compact car, importable models feature the 1.5L 3SZ-VE engine and 4 speed auto, which gets excellent fuel economy. Included as either standard or optional are:

Power steering

Power mirrors

Climate control

Split folding, reclining and sliding rear seat

Smart key

Optional blue lighting in the front grille

Where things get interesting are the sound and illumination options, particularly with the bB. The Coo features a 6 speaker sound system with glowing rings around the speakers, tweeters and cup holders. The bB in higher spec models takes the interior mood a step further with a 9 speaker sound system including subwoofer and horn style speakers on the C-pillars, plus 11 interior blue lights.

The lighting can be set to Static mode, Relax mode where the lights pulse slowly, or Club mode which alters the interior lighting to be more energetic for faster music. The front tweeter rings stay constantly lit so as not to distract the driver. The lighting modes are adjusted via a blue glowing controller in between the front seats.

Fitting futher with the mood-based theme of the interior, the bB also features Mattari-mode which translates roughly to laid-back, where the front seats not only recline back but also sink down by 80mm to create a more private and personal feeling within the car.

The bB and Coo are the same vehicle with only very slight differences between the two, being:

Only the bB came with 9 speaker sound system, centre console control and three illumination modes

Different colour and interior trim options

As if there being 2 manufacturers both selling the same car isn’t enough, there is actually a third! Subaru sells the same car again in Japan, calling it the DEX. Due to quirks in import regulations the Subaru DEX is not importable, even though the Toyota bB and Daihatsu Coo are.

The Coo is sold as the Daihatsu Materia in other markets.
