Can America find true happiness in a Microcar?
I've heard the same line for years, from both consumers and automakers alike: European and Asian micro-size cars will never succeed here in the United States. Why? Well, first Americans are too large?we just won?t fit comfortably inside these vehicles. Plus, they say, we wouldn?t feel safe driving rides so tiny they make a Honda Civic look like a Lincoln Town Car. Americans want big cars?period. Right? For decades, that was the accepted ideology on microcars, and few argued.
