The demand for small cars in Japan never lets up. The Suzuki Cervo is the 10th new minicar offered this year. Industry observers say the minicar segment may top 2 million units for the first time in 2006. Suzuki has been Japan's biggest minicar builder for 33 years but may trim production to increase compact production for export markets. Daihatsu looks to overtake Suzuki in Japan as the minicar leader.
