This will sell big to inner-city dwellers. You don't need a big engine for around town, a compact hatch is also easier to park coupled with a low price tag, it should be a hit.
Just don't test drive it with the A/C on.
Also, mitsubishi doesn't need to add more cool cars to the market. Sales are too low on cool cars to bolster your company. Mitsubishi needs more cars like this, more bread and butter cars that sell in volume but never really make the cool press releases, magazine covers, or big 3 page spread in car and driver.
