    It's rare when I run across a car I've never heard of before. I'm always suprised (and a little ashmed) to have never known or seen one of these:

    According to goo-net it seems they were available in Japan .... if anyone ever runs across one, I'd be interested.

    This car looks awesome. Was is only available in Europe and Japan?

    From what I gather, yes.

    Looks like it may have a Renault engine though as it was Volvo's first FWD :/

    Anyhow, it reminds me of a Lotus Excel, so I would love to have! They are cheap in the UK, ~$1000

    It's like a European Civic hatch.
