Lets face it things missing like power steering and electric windows are not exactly essentials are they? Neither is air conditioning but if you lived in somewhere like India I am sure you would prefer having that rather than some of the other things missing.
I mean how on earth did we ever manage before these things were invented?
Am I correct in saying that airbags are now a legal requirement in the UK? Even if it is I'm sure they could add one without breaking the bank but I'm also sure that the big car manufacturers would do everything in their power to stop this being sold outwith India.
Reminds me of a little Fiat one of my friends used to have, 0 - 60 in about a week providing you were going downhill, with the wind behind you. Have to say though that it was fine for in the town. Wouldn't fancy taking it on a dual carriageway but in town it was fine and very easy to drive and park as well.
If it did get licenced for UK sales think of the price. And the fuel economy. Whats the next cheapest car?
had a cheap car once from new called a daewoo matrix it was sheer rubbish everything was flimsy cheap and dreadful worse than the early skodas, lasted six months then got rid of it. the company since ceased trading and they are no more. I'm back to vauxhalls. You get what you paid for in cars.
