A very economical car, reliable with high performance


Nothing has gone wrong with the car.

General Comments:

This car is really well designed, economical, reliable and very fast. Its motor has a twin-cam 1.0L/16V engine - very powerful and with a good relation between the mechanical transmission and the engine. It replaced the CHEVROLET SPRINT and in Colombia's topography, this is a car adapted very well for it. The most important thing of this car is the economy - in terms of petrol consumption it consumes over 80mpg in road traffic and 86 mpg on highways. It's safe in pronounced curves.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I think you made a mistake it's not 80 miles per gallon, it's 80 kilometers per gallon, that should be about 50 MPG.

I cannot believe 80km/gallon, why they did not make a taxi version?
