It's funny seeing company's maybe 10 years ago bringing out "small" cars, and today they keep getting bigger and are replaced by smaller models that in turn grow bigger every generation then even THEY are replaced by smaller cars. Give it 10 years and the Up will be the size of the current golf and an even smaller call will be brought out haha

That's interesting seeing it like that. What else is interesting is the safety, quality and economy differences between the two especially considering the size similarities. Cars have come a long way and its not just size I think.

I'd like to bet the size of parking spaces has not increased as much over the last 30 years! And if anything our garage is even smaller.
