Small, nimble, economical. A first car that ticks all the right boxes.
As noted by many-a researcher, the market for a first car is extremely competitive, what with your Volkswagen Golfs and your Toyota Corollas. However, once you finally make your decision, the options list baffles the mind as to how a company could possibly charge ludicrous amounts of money for such trivial items, such as air-conditioning or power steering. Price aside, according to Tristar, none really have that "x-factor" that attracts you to cars in the first place.
The Tristar Kompakt hopes to finally give first-car buyers a quick solution regarding making an informed purchase for one's first car.
