Three bites at the Cherry are now offered to world buyers: saloon, sports coupe and station wagon. Built by Nissan, they have transverse pushrod engines and front-wheel drive. Saloon models have two or four doors and suspension is all-independent. The engine runs on cheap fuel and uses very little of it. Parking is easy and driving is fun.
