What is old is new again... There have been tiny 3 cylinder even two cylinder cars for 50 years. There has been monster engines as well.

I thought I never own a turbo car, because I preferred Cubic Inches for power. However turbo increases efficiency especially for a diesel.

There is NO FREE LUNCH.... to get real tiny tiny cars is not popular with Americans who love Trucks, SUV's, Mini Vans and big touring cars. You need power to move that mass and all the stuff it hauls. Cubic Inches does that... You can turbo your 1 Liter all day long... it will puke compared to a 5 Liter normally aspirated.
