Its appearance was preceded by the presence of a concept car at the 1987 Tokyo Motor Show exhibition.

Based on a search, Monday (20/3/2023) Cappuccino was made during the period 1991-1998.

The specifications of this car refer to the kei car provisions that apply in Japan.

This includes using a machine with a capacity of under 660 cc.

More precisely, Cappuccino is equipped with a 657 cc DOHC 3-cylinder engine which is also equipped with a turbocharged engine.

While the available transmission options include a 5-speed manual or a 3-speed automatic.

At first Cappuccino used a machine with the code F6A which was later replaced by K6A.

This brand-new engine has a lighter weight and adopts a chain-driver system, not belt-driven.

Equipped with turbocharged and intercooled, the engine power is claimed to reach 63 hp.

Cappuccino is equipped with disc brakes on all wheels and a Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) drive system.

Then the manufacturer equipped it with the initial generation of speed-sensing electric power-assisted steering and double wishbone suspension made of aluminum.

One of the uniqueness of this car is its roof design which has 3 separate panels.

That way Cappuccino can appear with several different body styling, namely coupe, convertible, T-Top, or targa.

In the Japanese market, this car has a number of close rivals, including Autozam AZ-1, Honda Beat and Daihatsu Leeza Spyder.

In October 1992, Cappuccino paved in England through the British International Motor Show exhibition.

However, this car’s journey in Europe stopped in 1995 due to tighter emission standards from regulators.
