Daihatsu took the opportunity to show their Trevis city car at the Geneva Auto Show last week. Although not new (the Trevis has been around for a couple of years), it is interesting to consider that the success of the Smart in the US might lead more automakers -- like Daihatsu -- to look for minicar options to export to the US.
At just over 11 feet long, the Trevis has a 58-horse 1.0L DOHC 3-cylinder engine. It gets 49mpg in the European city/hwy with a 5-speed manual transmission (39mpg wiht the optional 4-speed automatic).
We think it looks more like the original Mini than the new MINI does. Look for it.
