Essentially a rebadged Daihatsu Move Conte, Pixis Space is a mini-vehicle which has boxy styling and a 660cc engine.

Toyota has unveiled the new Pixis Space in Japan.

Essentially a rebadged Daihatsu Move Conte, the PS is Toyota's first mini-vehicle. The standard model is relatively basic, but Custom variants are distinguished by an aerodynamic body kit, HID headlights and a revised grille.

Inside, the 2,490mm wheelbase provides "plenty of room for four adults" while still offering "sufficient luggage space." That's debatable, but here's to hoping you have small friends.

Performance specifications weren't released, but the Pixis has a 660cc engine which is available in both naturally-aspirated and turbocharged guise. Regardless of which mill is selected, it is paired to a continuously variable transmission. Front wheel drive is standard, but higher-end models have four-wheel drive and an eco-IDLE start/stop system which enables the car to return 25.5 km/l (60 mpg US / 3.9 L/100km) in the 10-15 test cycle.
