Unlike the rear wheel drive Miata, which was designed as a sporting roadster, the front wheel drive Daihatsu Copen is more of a casual commuter, but one that you can pop the top on to enjoy open-air cruising as well. The look is certainly more 'cute' than 'sporty', but to my eyes you could almost call it a baby Porsche. The round headlights, taillights and front and rear fog / reverse lights suit the curved shape of the fenders, hood and trunk well. The folding hardtop, when up, seems a little too upright, but with the top down the car has a much racier look.
If you have to be copin' with the daily commute, you may as well do it in a cool little car like the Copen!
