Wonder what it's NCAP rating is.

Also, is there a minimum NCAP required to sell cars in Europe?

That'll do wonders for the handling.

Weird to have a sandwich type set up of cast iron.

So, it would still be ugly, unproven and uneconomical no matter what badge you put on it.

Also, for your joke to work, you should have stuck a Toyota badge on there http://www.beepbeep.ie/stats?sYear%5...%5D=&x=24&y=16

NCAP doesn't seem bad:




And, as usual, just ignore the youtube comments, terrible what they allow there.
