From a practical point of view it would be absolutely terrible (even dangerous) to drive a 2,800 lb car with a 1.0 liter 3 cylinder NA engine in the US.

It would have a 0-60 mph time of 60 seconds, going downhill with a tailwind.

I really don't think it would be "dangerous". I mean people drive Mitsubishi mirages...
