Here's the perfect way to die on the road.. Get hit by an SUV in this and you'll have a permanent indentation.... Way too small for American roads...
It already exists and it's called the Aygo -- http://whatcar.com/car-review-pictures.aspx?RT=723
seriously, lets downsize our unnecessarily huge suvs and have this in the states, and lets call it the toyota starlet.
Get hit by an SUV in this deathtrap? I'd be worried about being hit by a large bug.
of course, Smart cars are made after Kei cars, small Japanese cars that are very popular there.MB tried to copy that concept for Europe but it didnt work out that well...
This "anonymous " guy is very smart. Tell me - you are buying a lot of metal just because you might have an accident? Civic is much smaller than a Tahoe and will not roll on and you'll avoid an accident much easier. Remember, it's not just the car ; is the diver as well
This is NOT the Aygo.This model is actually smaller than the Aigo! Like the Smart is.Aigo is 3 and 5 door. This will be way to small to get rear doors.

That being said, who would you rather shere the road with – an SUV driver observing the rules of the road, or some barnstorming boyracer in a hopped up Civic driving like he's the only car on the street?
Ah yes, the old "Civic drivers are all dangerous and SUV drivers are all angels" argument...
the civic drive because at least i can see around and ahead of him.whatever happened to not hitting shit - since when did we become so obsessed with what happens _when_ we get into an accident? How about _never_ getting into an accident by driving a car with decent handling?
I can't imagine that Aygo buyers will go to Toyota dealers and complain about its size or fuel consumption. Why bother? I guess this could be Toyota's ultimate plug-in hybrid that can go around town with fuel consumption of a scooter. In another word, this is the SMART car that mercedes-benz intended to build 20 years ago.
You are right, Vince, this is way smaller than the Aygo. Like you, I did hear that a sub-Aygo car is being planned.
