I haven't seen anything on this, not sure if anyone else had either. They say this is going to be a twin scroll et up producing 195 ft/lbs from 1750 RPMs through 4500 RPMs. For a car that's supposed to weigh 2740 this could be a very fun little car to drive.

3 doors is odd.....I personally think it is hideous. 200 hp out of a 1.6 liter is cool but not enough to ever make me want one

^^^ Agreed, it looks like crap. I have a friend that bought the current model and I just can't understand why. If they can redesign the exterior they may have a small winner there.

I rather like that car. Numbers make it sound like its more fun than anything Honda is offering right now. That and I have a feeling that hp number is intentionally low.

I don't know? With the body modifications, it doesn't look as bad. Should be interesting to see who starts making things for it.

any car in race trim looks better, but these are still super ugly.

Not sure I would rock one, but I think they are pretty badass.

Hyundai and Kia keep pulling rabbits out of their hats... and it is impressive to say the least.

Edit: Damn, it gets 38mpg on the freeway. If I decide that fuel economy becomes important to me that helps me sway this direction.

I kind of like them but I also like the the Volvo C30 and people hate on those too. I thought the 5 door sti's were really ugly when they came out and now I like them.

...and yes now is a good time to talk about the Juke. hahaha
