    Note the Canadian specs have an additional 70 mm / 2.8 inches in overall length.

    That's likely due to different bumper design for the the Canada/US market.

    Those pics give a good look at the rear shaping of the car seems to be like a Kammback.

    Yup, they've done a good job of tapering toward the rear. Now if we could just pin down the reason for the wandering Cd values we see in various places.

    Yes will be great if we can work out what versions and markets get what Cd ratings.
    Then if say in Oz the best we get is say Cd 0.30 and say the Jap market gets the Cd 0.27 we maybe be able to order in the different parts to lower our cars Cd rating.

    Do you remember where you saw the Japanese reference? I've seen 0.27 referred to for the UK so far. But it makes sense Japan would get that too.

    Oh, and since posting these drawings, I've realized they're not true technical drawings.

    If they were, the side mirrors would be the same size in both the front & rear views, and they are not. That suggests there's a bit of perspective distortion in these, as if the drawings were made from photographs taken with a telephoto lens.

    Just FYI.

    No i don't recall if there ever was a Japanese reference to Cd of 0.27 (i know there is a reference somewere to Cd of 0.27) i was just making an example that other markets may get other Cd rating cars and that we maybe able to order other parts from Mitsu so we can make our cars a lower Cd. Hope i did not confuse you with that.
