Daihatsu Esse

I thought I saw this shape before…
It’s the old Renault 5 from 1972!
I knew it. Except I think the Renault still looks better, after more than 30 years.

The 5 became a huge success in Europe, and eventually reaching the US as the “Le Car”.(that was one stupid name)
Renault came out with the 2 door first. A shure way to fail in Europe where “nobody buys 2 door cars”.
They proved everybody wrong, and even came out with the 4 door version later…

Homage or copy? You tell me.
