    Yoink.

    Absolutely love this car, and have already looked at buying/importing it to NZ, but for $25,000 i could buy a GT-R or something instead. :/ Will just stick to driving it in Gran Turismo for now.

    AZ-1. In place of the Beat you can buy the S660.

    I probably could not fit in any of them.

    That seems like a slightly odd trio to match up - the Sera is a full-size car with a 1.5L engine, whereas the other two are Kei cars with 660cc. The obvious third car to compare with the AZ-1 and Beat is the Suzuki Cappuccino (collectively known as the 'ABC' cars).

    Of the three, I'd pick the AZ-1 I think, seems like a decent base to tune for more power Not sure I could fit into it, though.

    The Sera is just a Corolla with funky doors, so Iíll pass on that.

    (Side note, I havenít seen a Sera in ages, I thought they were ugly back in the day, too)

    The AZ-1 is pure funky all-over and I love its styling. Itís a battle between that and the Beat, in my view.

    I was a passenger in a Beat once. A friend of mine owned one. Cam youíll be surprised, tall people do fit in them, judging by the leggy blonde who was at the wheel!

    OK, I'll take an AZ-1 then.

    Probably thinking of the Sera since Regular Car Reviews just did a video about it and basically said how much more practical it was than the AZ-1. It was also the inspiration for the McLaren F1's doors.

    I think I'd pick that as the practical option, and I also like the interior the most.

    AZ-1.

    None of them are going to be performers so I go for the best looking.
