The Daihatsu Charade was a supermini sold from 1977 to 2000. Daihatsu considers the Charade a large "compact" car to differentiate it from other compacts in its lineup, such as the Daihatsu Mira/ Cuore.
The first generation (G10) appeared in 1977. It was available as 3-door or 5-door hatchback, powered only by a 993cc 3-cylinder engine with 50hp JIS (37kW).
The early G10 (Series 1) had round headlights and the late G10 (Series 2) had square headlights.

The Daihatsu Charade was very popular in Chile during the 1980s.
The Charade sold in Chile between 1978-1984 was called the G20. The first generation (1978-1980) had round headlights, the second generation (1980-1984) had square headlights, both powered by an 843cc 3-cylinder engine. Also available was the "Runabout" version, which was a 3-door hatchback with two little round windows in the back.
The second generation (G11) was released in 1983, again as a 3- or 5-door hatchback. It featured several variations of the 3-cylinder 1.0L engine, including a turbocharged version with 68hp JIS and a Diesel version. A 5-speed manual transmission was available. The G11 was produced with two frontends, colloquially known as "square-eyes" (Series 1) and "cat-eyes" (Series 2).
In Europe, the G11 underbody, engines and transmissions were used as the basis for the Innocenti De Tomaso, after Innocenti's contract with British Leyland expired. The G11 parts continued to be used by the Italian automaker until 1992.

The G11 Daihatsu Charade was released with two engine variants. The base model has the naturally aspirated, three cylinder, 993cc CB23 engine that spawns around 50-55 bhp. 0-60 mph takes around 12-13 seconds. The other Charade Turbo and Charade DeTomaso models had the upgraded cb23 engine, called the cb60. The cb60 was also a three cylinder 993cc engine, but was fitted with an IHI TurboCharger, which saw its power rise to 65-70bhp.
The third generation of the Daihatsu Charade (G100) debuted in 1987. It originally shipped with a 1.0L 3-cylinder engine (CB23) and 1.3L four-cylinder with single carburetor (HC-C). A 1.0L turbo diesel, a 1.0L twin-cam turbo (CB70)(CB80) , named GTti and delivering 101hp JIS (74kW), a 1.3L fuel injected 4-cylinder (HC-E) and 3-cylinder (CB90) were later added. It was released in a 3-door and a 5-door hatchback. A 4-door sedan was released with the 1.3L EFI engine in 1988. In Japan the GTti version was available, dubbed GT-XX, featured a sunroof, power windows, air-con and power steering. Also the interior was quite different from the GTti in that the fuse box was mounted inside the car and the seats were of a different design. The exterior featured side skirts, Speedline alloys and a different rear spoiler to the GTti.
