Snow? Where are you located, your flag isn't a flag I recognize. LOL

I have driven all of the above at one point or another, a co-worker at my old job had a Fiesta, I liked it but Ford has decided to end production of all economy cars and has moved to an SUV-only format. The American auto makers made this same mistake in the 1990's, which i very much remember. They still had sedans, but most of them were so crappy and unreliable that it was a debacle. A car like the Chevy Corsica, as one example, had 5 good years of shelf life before it fell apart. That's unheard of today.

The Spark is a very good car, but the shoulder room isn't there. The K27 has more shoulder room according to measurements I've seen. That's impressive.
Right this moment? -in the US Northeast. I'm from Panama. And that flag is from Costa Rica, which is right next door to Panama. It just seems this forum assigns a flag to wherever you happen to have been when you signed up. They probably went by IP address. I wonder what flags are assigned for people using a satellite phone on a ship? lol

That's a darn shame that Ford has abandoned economy vehicles. The Fiesta was a good and economic vehicle. The Escort was a very popular vehicle for quite an while too. That almost seems like they have turned their backs on regular everyday people. I guess the needs or wants of those with deeper pockets are more profitable to address than probably the majority of people.

Lee Iacoca was correct in his assessment for the need of a K-Car, but, unfortunately, that didn't seem to last. lol I remember the Corsica. It was pretty sexy when it came out. I had a GF with one. But truth is she did not have if for more than 4 years. Another set of junkers was the Ford Tempo / Mercury Topaz. How many of those do you see on the road anymore. lol

Yes, I'm impressed by the good use of space on the K27. I think it's a clone of the Dihatsu Key car.

I'm not sure of this but, do you happen to know, are the rear seats on the K27 not only forward foldable but also slightly reclinable?

BTW, I know nothing about foldable seats, but to be honest I'm most interested in the K23, and after it comes with a fast charger. The K27 isn't much interest to me. I like its style better actually, but its a tad smaller and the battery difference makes it not my model. The K23 isn't the best looking car on the market, I will admit that, but its incredibly practical from all that I've seen. It has tremendous storage with the seats folded down, and its got ample shoulder room from the stats I've seen.

One thing I'm SICK of reading are headlines like this:

Comments on looks are worthy to be written, but not as a headline. Its these cheap shots that the media have been relentless on. Personally I don't agree with the K27 comments, that model appears every bit as sexy as a Mini or VW Beetle product. The K23 clearly has a noticeably different look, but again this car isn't being sold to people who go for looks first. That link completely misses the point.

Two key words: weird and cheap. That isn't said in a positive way, either.
