It's basically an electric Yaris.

Fuel economy isn't as impressive for its size as the regular Prius, thanks to the smaller battery pack and assist motor, but it's a pretty decent thing.

Saw a rusted red Subaru Justy 3-door hatch, pre-facelift model (pre 1988-89?) around here in Houston. I couldn't believe my eyes as they are extremely rare now and no one really knows they exist. These Justy's and the Mazda GLC & 323s have all but disappeared. The 3-door Justy to my eye looks like an exact copy of the original Ford Fiesta Mk1.

Subaru Justy 5-door

Ford Fiesta Mk1

I didn't notice the resemblance at first, but it seems quite accurate. Just look at the headlights.

It looks like Toyota is a fan of Ford and wants to be like Ford ....


Video like German Ford boast about testing Ford Fiesta for durability that in the real world can not withstand more than 200,000. km ...

And Ford wanted to be like VW
The first Fiesta looked a lot like the VW Polo / VW Golf



Back in the days, 4/5 doors were a costly premium over 2/3 doors - when available at all

40 years on, the VW Polo is no longer even available with 3 doors in the EU

I wouldn't trust that. Modern DI engines have a weakness, and that's carbon building on the intake valves. Chunks could potentially wreck that engine.

Do you mean diesel engines in Ford?
