Chrysler Expresso: Small Car With Big Potential
Fuel prices are rising and the trend in the automotive is fuel economy, auto-makers are opting in manufacturing small cars for those consumer who has a tight budget. Asian automakers are leading the category by producing this type, cars like Suzuki Celerio, Toyota Yaris, Honda Brio, Kia Picanto, and Hyundai I10.
US automakers like Chevrolet with their Chevrolet Spark is also making its mark in this category.
I did not know that Chrysler also has their cars in this category, but it is still a prototype that in my opinion it will make big impact in the market; they called the "Expresso". With its futuristic design and cute name, it will definitely catch the attention of the market.
The car on this one is equipped with a Single-OverHead-Camshaft, 16-valve, 4-cylinder, Gasoline fed engine producing 132 horsepower delivering on it front-wheel layout.
Hope Chrysler will mass-produced this one and equipped it with a hybrid engine or electric engine.
