Have you noticed that all the Hybrids cars have something in common? They all are horrible and pathetic, besides boring. It seems that car manufacturers spend all their budget on scientists and engineers who create this technology and invest very little on designers.
There's no such thing as cheap and cheerful. It's cheap and nasty or expensive and cheerful. NYC Style!

I cannot stop laughing every time I see someone driving a Smart car, they seem to be in other world, the car is nice and very well done, it finishes are amazing, I have to be honest, but it looks kind of weird, I just what could happen if they crash with someone driving a SUV of stuff like that. I wouldn't feel safe handling that car, but well, it the point is to save some money on gas, it is perfect, to playing golf would be perfect too smiley
