In the tenth series of Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson jokingly compared the Materia to the Ascari A10, saying, "Sure the Daihatsu Materia is a good car... but on balance... I'd choose the big, yellow, shouty car instead."
This generation of the Materia is sold in Japan as the Daihatsu Coo and the Subaru Dex and mainly as the Toyota bB.
The Daihatsu Materia is available only with an automatic 1.5 petrol engine in the UK market.
