Interesting point of view Joe. Well, I think that small cars can still be competitive in the market as having a small car in the city is still advantageous most times specially when it comes to traffic and in parking, even though it may not carry as much passenger or luggage comfortably as those regular cars can, it can still do the job of delivering good mileage.

The question is will there still be a need or a market for such a small car? I think that small cars only became popular cause of the mileage it can give to the driver. With all the technology and innovation we have with cars nowadays, regular cars can get good mileage as well. So the question ends up to that actually, will there be a need for a small car when a regular car can drive the same distance with more passenger and luggage space?
