Small cars can be unassumingly powerful. There are actually several kinds out in the market, which are powerful enough to amaze just about anyone.

Just like these muscle cars featured over at Legendary Videos. One of the vehicles featured in the website article was the Chevrolet. “Chevrolet built the Nova on the X-body platform. Therefore, it was a compact muscle car on top of a sturdy platform. When the Nova retired, they replaced it with the Chevrolet Citation, which they introduced in the spring of 1979. The Chevrolet Nova received a second shot at life when they revived it in 1985. Meanwhile, the Nova SS is the performance version of this compact muscle car. Chevrolet transfomed it from a regular trim package to a performance option for 1968. Apparently, this car was one of the smallest muscle cars to ever grace Detroit. Under the hood, this car carried a 295 hp (220 kW) 350 cu in (5.7 l) V8 engine along with a heavy-duty suspension and other performance hardware. It also had engine options including two versions of the big-block 396 cu in (6.5 l) V8 rated at 350 hp (260 kW) and 375 hp (280 kW). Both engines offered flexibility with its handful of transmission options.”

Small SUVs

Motortrend meantime featured crossover SUVs which according to them are the future of family cars.

“The beachhead these sedans had has slowly been eroding over the past decade as small crossovers started eating into their market share. With the pendulum now in full swing, automakers are predicting that compact crossovers will overtake sedans in sales and as the vehicle of choice for families by the end of the decade.”

Disney meantime had its research arm produce a tiny robot car that can drive from the floor to walls. This was shared by the website The Verge on one of its posts.

“The robot, VertiGo, was created through a partnership between Disney Research Zurich and the university ETH Zurich. By rolling up to a wall and adjusting two propellers attached to it, the robot can climb up and continue moving at a surprisingly brisk pace. ‘By transitioning from the ground to a wall and back again, VertiGo extends the ability of robots to travel through urban and indoor environments,’ the researchers write about the project. ‘The robot is able to move on a wall quickly and with agility.’ It’s not clear exactly what Disney might want the concept for, but it’s a neat enough trick that it’s not hard to see it showing up in some kind of consumer product down the road.”

Small cars indeed can even be high-powered.
