    Sounds like you are describing a Lotus.

    That's cool you have a Micra. If they sold them in the U.S. I would own one.

    Suzuki Alto

    That's cool an Alto. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generations looked cool.

    I would trade Fiat, Mini, and some other car companies for Suzuki to come back. I wish they were still here. I like their selection of small cars & SUV vehicles offered elsewhere.

    Yeah, it would be interesting to see what they would offer. Back in about 2006, I test drove an SX4 Techno edition and was unimpressed. The manual gearbox was really dodgy and the clutch was so light. The 'Techno' model was all superficial stuff like decals and trim (no performance stuff).

    Wow, that Fiesta is rare. I think I've only seen 2 in my life.
