Please see our comparison tables for more on the specific details of each of these six models.
Suzuki Alto Works RS/R
This lightweight, high-performance kei car combines the advantages of all-wheel-drive with a turbocharged, intercooled DOHC engine and 5-speed manual gearbox. The 8,500 redline on the tachometer is your hint that horsepower extends beyond the official 64 hp limit. Needless to say, the Alto Works RS/R is fun to drive and extremely practical in snowy weather.
The Honda Beat
The Beat’s naturally aspirated, mid-ship 656cc E07A engine with 3 inline cylinders, 12 valves and a single overhead camshaft features an 8,500 redline, 10:1 compression ratio and drive-by-wire MTREC with one throttle valve per cylinder for smoother intake, sharper throttle response and more linear power delivery. The engine revs high like a motorcycle’s with an exciting 3-cylinder rumble that combines with the low riding height and wind flowing through your hair to make driving feel fast and exciting at 84mph. The adrenaline rush is real!
Suzuki released this beautiful 2-door roadster with the promise of “fulfilling one’s dream of owning a stylish and very affordable 2 seater sportscar.” The turbocharged DOHC engine is mounted behind the front axle to achieve an impressive 50/50 weight distribution that contributes to great handling. The Cappuccino has millions of fans and there’s even a Suzuki Cappuccino racing league.
Daihatsu Mira L200 TR-XX
The top-end Mira L200 is powered by a 3-cylinder, 12-valve engine that is not only turbocharged, but electronically fuel-injected to provide both quick response and fuel efficiency. The engine is mated with a 5-speed manual transmission. Another version of the Mira in 1990 (the L220) was the only kei car to ever feature mechanical four-wheel steering.
Mitsubishi Minica Dangan ZZ-4
Small in dimensions but big on innovation, the sporty Minica Dangan ZZ-4 was the world’s first production vehicle with 5 valves per cylinder. It also features an intercooled turbocharger, double overhead camshafts, full engine management, 9000 rpm redline and 5-speed manual transmission for truly fun performance. Many enthusiasts consider it their favorite kei car.
The Daihatsu Leeza Spider
The Leeza was a largely unremarkable hatchback built from 1986 to 1993, but it had a convertible version called the Spider, and that injected it with a dash of careless cool. The 730kg droptop had a 660cc engine producing a neat 64 horsepower, and it is a great car to whip around. The cabrio top could be peeled in parts, depending how much open air you needed and it is packed with quirky amenities like under front seat storage.
