TOKYO -- The latest iteration of the Suzuki Wagon R minicar is more irrefutable proof -- if any were still needed -- that small is beautiful in Japan.
The boxlike, child-sized Wagon R is definitely not beautiful on the outside, with its pie-tin wheels and awkward dimensions. But its inner beauty shines through when you pop the doors.
And that’s not because of copious Italian leather, laminated wood and massage seats. Rather, the Wagon R, like many Japanese small cars and minis, is all about packaging.
