They form a triumvirate the Aygo of Toyota, the C1 of Citroen and the 107 of Peugeot. At present one just celebrate five years of cooperation in the work of Kolin in the Czech Republic with a annual capacity of 300,000 units. The plant is from 2002, newly created in the open countryside. Small and fuel-efficient cars one builds the best in community, even if Toyota and PSA in this time belong to the largest automotive companies in the world.
And yet the technique comes of any of the three original, but from the Cuore of Toyota's subsidiary Daihatsu. There are still more identical models, at least in the drive, even if the performance data does not match exactly. But the design of the three is distinctly European influenced. So also with the 107 that comes along relatively broad, despite its short length. As a city car it is advertised, laid the ecologically minded people to the heart.
Rarely succeeded a real mini to look as relatively chic. Thus, one can bring small cars to consumers. For this aim are given up the four-door at Peugeot in contrast to the Aygo and C3. Unfortunately, with a basic price of 10,000 € (without air conditioning) is not enough left for a dashboard a la Mini One. And only a additionally mounted speedometer makes it far from being a cool design. 02/10
