Driving the World's Cheapest Car

This pint size car has its advantages from smaller parking space suitable in narrow streets like Paris and other European countries, more economical with a smaller engine and lighter body to being able to handily carry 4 regular sized passengers (Sumo wrestlers are, of course, an exception to this, lol). 

It may interest you to note that in the early 70's in Bacolod City, Philippines, a similar lightweight car, the "Minica," used to be a popular taxicab in that city until it was banned, only to be replaced by human-pedalled tricycles called "trisikad" which ply selected city streets until now, a practice tolerated by the city government, perhaps, to alleviate economic woes since the fall of sugar prices, the province's (Negros Occidental) main agricultural resource .

As far as safety is concerned, well, this blogger thinks it is at least safer than riding an open motorcycle.  Read more on its price and features through our link.
