Welcome to GS! I drove the Euro-version in 2006, the Chevy "Kalos". You're right about the space. When I was in Europe (for work), two of us went to pick up 2 more people at the airport. I was worried 4 people + 2 people's luggage woudn't fit, but we were snug as a bug in a rug. It's turning radius was very "Euro-city" friendly, which helped alot.
EDIT : There have been some kool tricked out ones here in LA.
