Whereas you are correct that companies are global, national brands retain a certain je ne sais quoi.

The smart is unmistakably an European car in conception, economy, power, safety, performance envelope, price, features, and design. Those are the characteristics that separate it from what are typically known as "econoboxes" and "penalty boxes".

Well, the Nissan Micra is an econobox. This is why it won't even be considered by some. :)
And now the car that wouldn't even be considered by me is not even considered by Daimler Benz! :) :D :p

Oh yeah, baby!

Everything you ever wanted to know about the new smart Micra.

NEW Nissan Micra

In the UK, you get a choice of two interiors:
  • black on black
  • beige on black
:rolleyes:

We used to commute to school in my roomate's Micra. It was OK for congested Milanese traffic.

But this is no European car and I will not be buying one.

And now, no-one will be buying this abomination, because it's been cancelled!
:p

I was wanting to see it get to the auto shows before it got nixed. I wanted to see what they had in mind for design...
