I don't know if it was ever introduced in US but I remember in late 80s/early 90s, they was this small compact car named Tico. (maybe made by Daewoo?)

And it was the smallest thing, maybe smaller than BMW Mini. I'm just nostalgic and I want to know the car's specs and etc...

Anyone know?

no, somehow the commercial i watched 13 years ago left an impression in my head. (as it was selling like hot cakes in the overpopulated city, Seoul, Korea)

I just want to revisit my old memories. :)

look for the Maruti Suzuki..

the tito is a rebadged Alto that is a rebadged Maruti Zen that is made in India.

Actually it might be the Maruti 800..

its a 3cylinder, 768cm engine with 37 HP.. not 41.. unless they changed it..

Our Maruti Omni van had the same engine.. it had 37 hp..

quite a nice car.. i miss it.. the 800 hatchback was really zippy (it was lighter)
