Its cabin is designed for quiet and comfort, and has a large cargo area with fold-flat rear seats. Plus, it’s packed with tech including a digital instrument panel and Toyota Safety Sense 3.0.
The Citroën Ami Buggy is what Carwow calls “the world’s smallest SUV.” While we question the “sport” and “utility,” it’s definitely a vehicle. This sub-sub-compact car has open sides, plastic windows, and a sunroof held in place with a zipper and Velcro. With an 8 hp motor, it tops out at 28 mph. Mat Watson spent some time with this tiny EV, so you don’t have to.
