Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI), the maker of Subaru automobiles, unveiled at the 62nd Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) its new Subaru Justy, a model that will go on sale in Europe immediately following the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The new Justy is positioned as an entry-level car in Subaru’s lineup. While offering nimble maneuverability and cabin roominess, the new Justy boasts exceptional fuel economy and low emission levels, thanks to the compact 1.0-litre engine. Two versions will be available in the European market: the sporty 1.0S, and the practical city-driving 1.0E. Both versions are front-wheel drive with 5MT. The new Justy will be supplied by Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd., under an original equipment manufacturing (OEM) agreement with FHI.

I love the light color of this Justy, but I must agree with them that the wheel is not really for a drivers’ car. It is kind a cute except for the wheels.
