After talking to a Prius owner while here in Iraq, I started going back through old posts. I saw a mention of Kei Cars. This piqued my interest and I found that Suzuki is the leading producer and licenses to a lot of other manufacturers.

Here's one of my Favorites:
Suzuki Wagon R 3rd Gen

I love these things, I would kill for a Cappuccino, Alto Works, or Copen.
