While the name won't win awards for originality, the CGS features an attractive design with distinctive headlights, a sloping roofline, and flush door handles.  Inside, efficient packaging ensures the cabin can comfortably seat five adults.

The CGS is technically a concept, possibly of the new Colt/Mirage, which will eventually go into production in March 2012. It will be built in Thailand and feature class-leading fuel efficiency as well as CO2 emissions "in the mid-90 g/km range."

Detailed specifications haven't been announced, but the production model will be powered by a 1.0- to 1.2-liter engine which is paired to a continually variable transmission (CVT). Furthermore, to maximize efficiency, the vehicle will have regenerative brakes and an engine start/stop system.
