Rover P6 had a huge transmission hump and tiny trunk with jack & spare buried beneath. Collapsable steering column, all-wheel discs and passenger safety cage earned the title. Leyland quality ruined it. Best iteration was with small Buick V8. My monies on Cactus.
Looks like a list of the most boring cars of Europe. Why exactly is it "Europe's" car of the year? How does what's popular in the north most stretches of Norway, translate to the popularity of the cars in Southern Spain, Germany, or especially those in Eastern Europe?
Is Smart still going to try and bring the TwinGo to the US?
So a Volkswagen in Los Angeles would be different than that of a european model?
