After all not everyone is as nimble as Gunbir in getting in and out of tight cars. :-)
oct is a notchback, not a hatch

So is the accent vive. Question I ask is as far as showing of ICE is concerned what is the difference. remember what i am trying to debate is which is the best car to show of ICE (replacement for eyeballer). Hatchbacks are traditionall chosen as one can lift the hatch and look in but why not notchbacks. Am i missing something or are the others not thinking out of the box.

My Octy for example gives a great view if one was to install a ICE in it's rear.

Guys I think a perfect car a nice setup must be a bit Bulky sporty kinda lukin hatch or a notchback with a huge boot space.

I remember there was a car , orange one, forgot the name or company, sounded like "I-Go", check it out. Ill try to find that. It was supposed to hit Indian shores too.

That's one great ride!
But a serious concern here, Xtreme Power!
