 Honda N360
image
Based on the CB450 2-cylinder engine, Honda's first application of a front-engine, front-wheel drive setup to a minicar resulted in a passenger vehicle with unparalleled interior space for its class. Seating adults with ease, the 354 cc, 31 ps high-power engine meant that the N360 could also be driven on expressways. It had a major impact on the layout of subsequent small cars in the same class.
