http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Aygo

This car is awesome. Pure and simple, it is time for cars like this to start making their way outside of Europe.

I mean come on! It isn't even sold in the manufacturer's home country!!

This appears to be pretty similar, maybe a little smaller, in dimensions to the original VW Rabbit, which was a huge seller in it's day, fun to drive too! America has become so safety obsessed in our litigous (sp) and prolific SUV society, I wonder if the US is ready for fun little buzzbombs again. Gas is still cheaper here than in Europe. I think the mfrs are betting subcompacts are on the bleeding edge of how small the US will buy in significant numbers.

The fact that such a vehicle isn't available in America really torques me. I'd buy one for my commute, and leave the Blue Beast home for plowing and for my off road adventures.

Diesel / AYGO 3 & 5-door 1.4L Diesel 5-speed Man

* Urban: 53.3 mpg or 5.3 l/100 km
* Extra-urban 83.1 mpg or 3.4 l/100 km
* Combined: 68.9 mpg or 4.1 l/100 km
* CO2 emissions: 109 g/km[1]
I think a ton of people would snap these up in a heart beat. Who knows if in 10 years with gas the way it is, minis like these would be imported.

That Top Gear guy is a dinky guy, and he fills the Aygo pretty full... It does look like a nice car.

Keep in mind, those figures are imperial gallon based. Of course the l/100km is the same, but the mpg figures are higher than what you would see in the U.S. Insanity to the nth level I tell you. England and America need to get their acts together.

I would drive one of these cars in a heartbeat. I love the modular design that it has. I usually fix up my cars, and while hanging new parts isn't TOO bad, anything to save time and effort would be really appreciated.

I think that we need to start working on international standards for automobiles, to help open up potential markets, like super compact diesel markets! Of course, the USA needs to get its act together and first standardize itself!

50 states, 1 law.
