Will he return the Daihatsu Copen?
Apparently no desire to revive the Japanese roadster niche small size. Nothing talked of a "spiritual successor to the Honda Beat": Https: //www.motorpasion.com/honda/honda-s660-concept-rumbo-a-tokio, and now tells Autocar that could return the Copen. Both cars were born adapted to the Japanese kei car regulations: 3.4 meters long, 660 cc and 64 hp.
Daihatsu Copen is the selling was ten years in Japan, from 2002 to August 2012. It is unknown whether this possible successor to follow these rules and engine size, while export versions were a little more animated by 1.3. This, of course, citing unnamed sources, let's leave rumor.
It is very difficult for any of us have seen a Copen, at least outside the Canary Islands. Unlike Suzuki Cappuccino and Honda Beat, the Copen was front-wheel drive. Total Japanese power with tantísima was a little like one thing than the other. Also he had front engine, instead of a central one.
The truth is that this sub-segment of small cars and fun They fit perfectly into the politically correct today. Low consumption, low emissions, a very compact size for getting around town, affordable maintenance and design pintón without large outlays of money.
Cities need more cars and less Diesel doing these 10,000 km a year or less. After all, the car is not just a means of transportation, you can also appeal to emotion minimally. Do not?
