Small cars often come in handy, especially when writing the initial check to purchase it and when pulling up next to the gas pump. For obvious reasons, the smaller the car and the smaller the engine, the less it costs and the less gas it uses. Anyway, Chrysler
has been after a small B-Class
car of their own for a while now, and appeared to have a deal in hand with the Chinese carmaker Chery for a car in that segment, namely, the Dodge Hornet
. We have brought you quite a few news stories
since then regarding that deal, which seems odd, considering that a deal had apparently been struck
already... but, it seems that Chery might think that the deal is off based on the new owner of the Chrysler group. According to this story
on Autoblog, Chery wants to renegotiate the deal with Cerberus, the new owner. I guess we'll just need to keep an eye on this one for now and hope that the vehicle gets built at some point.
