Are tiny cars making a return in the U.S.?

Posted By on January 5, 2013


Another ultra-small car (the third 3-cylinder) his headed for the U.S. according to reports from Mitsubishi. They have struggled to make inroads due to the stiff competition and sluggish economy, but are hoping Americans will consider their 1.2 liter 3-cylinder Mirage.  Their small three cylinder economy car will compete with Ford’s EcoBoost turbocharged 1.0 liter and the 3-cylinder in the Smart.

Will the Mitsubishi small 79 HP be enough to boost small car sales in North America like the Japanese cars were in the late 70’s and 80’s?
