Dodge Hornet - almost reality
Dodge Hornet Concept was unveiled last year at Geneva Motor Show and now the concept is set to become reality and you will be able to order it from a showroom near you. Dodge wants the Hornet to be a competitor for the hyper-successful BMW-built Mini.
The Hornet is Focus width and Fiesta length, sitting plump on concept-car special, 19-inch wheels. Although the general dimensions could be retained for production, show-car frippery like the monster alloys and rear-hinged back doors clearly won’t be.
The car is powered by a supercharged four-pot engine with an output of 170bhp and Dodge talks of the Hornet having a sporty character. Owners will be able to customise their cars inside and out – just like the Mini’s range of highly profitable options.
