Spotted this beauty at the parking lot of a supermarket. Not so easy to see a seemingly unmolested Fiat 147 with the earliest front clip.



Chevrolet Onix hatchback made only in Brazil, unlike the sedan which was premiered in China



Even though this one was not the first Onix sedan I saw on the street instead of at a dealer showroom, was the first one I took a picture on the street


I'm sure it might fare as somewhat eco, compared to bulkier vehicles also used as taxi

Someone on campus has a pretty blue Mirage....think it's a CVT though.

One of the new sophomores has a red Ford Festiva (I think it's a '93? I looked at it but I don't remember offhand).

Fiat Argo, this one with the 1.0L 3-cyl available only with manual transmission



Most of the current-generation Ford Ka (badged Figo in Mexico and India) that I see are either rentals or company cars

Besides this Fiat 147 being such a featherweight, there were times when Brazilian racing championships resorted to ethanol. Might qualify as somewhat eco or not?

Here is an addition... a Hudson! ...wheel skirts make anything "eco" in the gas guzzling USA.
