Mitsuoka, a small Japanese automotive company that has been converting modern production cars into retro cars for over 30 years, has released the fourth generation of the Mitsuoka Viewt.
The novelty is built on the basis of the current generation of the compact hatchback Toyota Yaris, whereas earlier, Nissan Micra (March in Japan) was used as a donor, but its production has already ceased.
The exterior design of the Mitsuoka Viewt retrocar has been seriously redesigned, the front end is completely unique: a new hood, bumper, grille and optics. Behind similar changes, a new fifth door, optics and a bumper. The color scheme consists of 12 options, 4 main and 8 additional.
In general, as with previous Mitsuoka Viewt models, the designers were inspired by the 1963 British Jaguar Mark 2.
In terms of dimensions, the new retrocar is comparable to its donor, the length has only slightly increased due to new body parts. Width – 1695 mm, height – 1500 mm, length – 4090 mm (3940 mm for Yaris).
The salon is unified with the original Toyota Yaris hatchback, with the exception of retro-style trim – 8 options are offered to choose from.
Technically, the new Mitsuoka Viewt completely repeats its donor. All modifications that the Yaris has in Japan are proposed:
Engine 1.0 (69 hp), front-wheel drive and CVT Engine 1.5 (120 hp), front-wheel drive and variator or “mechanics” (it is also possible to order four-wheel drive for the version with a variator) Hybrid version: 1.5 (91 hp) c) and electric motor (80 hp)
You can already pre-order, commodity cars will appear in the fall. Prices start at 3,080,000 yen (1,720,000 rubles). For comparison, the cost of Toyota Yaris in Japan starts at 1,470,000 yen (820,000 rubles).
In addition to the Viewt, Mitsuoka’s lineup includes the Buddy retrocrossover (based on the current Rav 4), and previously there was the Rock Star roadster (based on the Mazda MX-5).
